I'm around 16 weeks now, and obviously I've told my parents by now because it's kind of hard to hide. They were very supportive but I could tell they were disappointed in me. It was difficult telling them who the father was because they hardly knew him. My siblings are looking at me like I've let everyone down, it makes me upset. Nobody even talks to me anymore. It was hard to tell my boyfriend I was pregnant, but I finally did. I wish I didn't though because he broke my heart and left. It's been really difficult, doing this on my own has been hard but I guess it's my fault. My baby is healthy though so I'm happy. School has been horrible, I lost a lot of friends.. but at least I realised who my true friends are. I'm trying to get an education, I'll go to school for my baby.. he/she needs me and I won't give up. I'm quickening now, I can feel my baby's movements and it's painful but amazing. I don't get morning sickness anymore and my emotions aren't as dramatic as they were, for once I. can hold back my tears throughout a sad commercial, but I'm still highly anxious. I'm incredibly tired and out of breath. I could be walking to the bathroom and be out of breath like I've just ran a marathon. But it's normal, my uterus is growing and it's crowding my lungs. My step mum has been taking me out for pedicures lately just to make me feel better. My teachers have been very supportive and they're already asking me what I'm going to name it if I have a boy or girl. But argh I'm not even sure yet. My baby is around the size of an avocado, their head is my erect and the scalp pattern is starting to develop, my baby's heart is pumping about 25 quarts of blood a day and is even growing toenails. In the next few weeks the baby is going to grow double his length.
Dear Diary, it's around 22 weeks and I've gained so much weight. The clothes I have to wear are so ugly and the worst part is I have to wear them to school! I've got stretch marks on my stomach, hips and back. It looks so gross. But the great part is, my ex boyfriend said he regrets ever leaving me and he wants to try to make this work for the baby's sake. School's been okay and I still have supportive friends who've helped me design my baby's room. Everything's falling into place, I'm so happy. I now know what gender they are, I'm having a boy! I'm so excited but I'm not sure what to name him yet. By now his skin would look wrinkled until he gains enough weight to fill it out. His eyes are developed but the inses still lack pigment. He is at 11 inches and almost 1 pound. His lips, eyelids and eyebrows are becoming more distinct.
