Hello there. I'm 15 years old and a sophomore in high school with a 4.0 GPA, at the top of my class. I've been with my boyfriend for almost two years. We recently had sex for the first time (two and a half weeks ago), and used a condom. It was put on correctly and didn't break, and as far as we could tell there wasn't any leakage.
But my period is 4 days late, even though it's not always on time. My breasts have been sore for about four to five days, which is a sign I also get before my period. We've told his mom our decision to have sex and had already started investigating for me to get on the Pill, but she's offered to take me for a checkup at the gyno and get me on the Pill as well. My boyfriend insists on paying for it. All of this is of course wonderful!--But I'm feeling guilty about not telling my mom. I'm still figuring out how/when to do it.
The point is, we're afraid I'm pregnant. The past few days, I've been in a panic about it (which could be making my period late), but now that we've told his mom, I feel so much better! But she's not convinced that I'm pregnant, seeing as though she had thought she was pregnant many times and didn't have her period for two months from the stress. Anyway, I'm waiting around for my period now.
From reading this board and thinking it through myself, I know I can fulfill my dreams even with a baby on hand, even if it's difficult, because I'm determined. And I know my boyfriend will be there for me 100%; we've already talked about it plenty of times, even before we decided to have sex. His mom will of course support us as well, and we're not quite sure of his dad's reaction.
My mom will be disappointed because she's told me time and time again not to mess it up, but I know she'll be there for me, too.
That's going to be the scariest part--telling her...
However, I don't even know if I'm pregnant. But if I don't get a period next month, either, or maybe if I don't get my period by the end of this month, his mom and I agreed that it will be time to find out what's going on. And before I go to get tested, I'll tell my mom.
Basically, I just wanted to get it all off my chest. I thank you guys for all the encouragement you've given to all the other worried and pregnant or thinking they're pregnant teens...it made me feel so much better.
