My mom was pregnant before me. At Thanksgiving she went into the doctor as something wasn't right. She was told that there wasn't a baby but matter.
I was lucky enough that my mom was able to set her political and religious beliefs aside in order to protect me from the many struggles that I would have faced caused by failed birth control.
At 19 weeks, with a wanted pregnancy with twins, we were devastated by news that one of our twins was very ill, and in order to not only spare her suffering, but save her twins life our only option was a selective termination.
I found out I was pregnant 11 days after my son's 2nd birthday. My birth control had either failed at its job, or I failed to be responsible.
I was a senior in high school when I found out I was pregnant.
