Many people ask me how’s my experience has been being pregnant In high school. My answer is “way better then I had expected”.
I really don’t think people realize that I can tell when the shift of their eye balls go from my face and stop at my belly bump, or the frantic whispering I get behind me from lower classmates when I walk in the halls. Yes for crying out loud I notice it all!
But I can say that I’m so grateful for all the people who supported me since day 1 and is always willing to listen to a new adventure I encountered. (Shoutout to you Peyton 💛) but I can safely say that the beginning of my pregnancy wasn’t as easy as it is now. And for most they don’t even know that I’m pregnant?¿ how, I have no idea cause I’m definitely showing🤰🏽.
I remember when I personally found out I was expecting and I told no one but my fiancé, 2 weeks later at school I was slowly telling my close friends and than some how half the school knew before I felt like I truly did.
Did you know Carmelita is pregnant????
I felt like everyone was talking about me and to be real only two people in the entire school, actually came up to me and asked. Obviously they didn’t want to believe what may have been rumors. News flash they aren’t 😂!
After a while my name seemed to stop floating around and the stares seemed to die just a little till my 20th week when I posted my baby gender reveal. (If you haven’t seen it before than stop reading and go watch it now!!) my dms on almost every social media started to pile up to what seemed like “fan mail” which is what it basically was.
I had so many people congratulating me on the expecting of my fiancé and I baby girl! I felt super loved and started to get more and more confident. I may have just been one of the lucky ones to have a good high school experience where people are excited for my growing family and I.
So I want to take the time out of my day to say thank you to each and every one of you for supporting me in my pregnancy. Whether you just like my pictures on Instagram, retweet my tweets on twitter or simply just read my blogs. I am a teen mom and I’m so excited to start my journey as one.
Thinking about senior year I never thought I would have been in the situation that I am. I never thought that people would actually be supportive and nice, I was so extremely nervous when people started to find out because I was probably the “last” one anyone would of thought to get pregnant.
My child is not a mistake, she might as well be the best “oops” ever! So as my pregnancy journey comes to an end and we all get ready to start our new journeys just remember that you all have given me the confidence in being a better mom to my child than you can ever imagine. So if you see me in the halls or any other soon to be mom, a smile can make them feel more comfortable in school. Because not only are we changing in so many ways we are changing in front of thousands of people who we have no idea who half of them are.
And if you happen to be a soon to be mama or know someone who is remember that the people around you makes a difference. So share a smile to everyone because you have no idea what is happening behind closed doors. Kindness is key💛
