After more than a day of feeling like a load of crap, puking in both toilets of the house I finally decided to do the thing that was slowly coming to my mind “Am I pregnant?”. So whilst my mother was out at work, I bought a pregnancy testing kit, now was the moment of truth..
After I had used the bathroom and did what the instructions said, I waited for the result..
Then, I looked at the test.. it was positive.
To be honest I had gained a considerable amount of weight, but being pregnant at only 16, shocked me.
I hid the test so my mother wouldn’t find it and went to sleep.
My mother woke me up at 6:30 AM, I got ready for school and sat outside on my balcony for an amount of time which seemed like hours, until I realized I had missed the bus, oh well.
My mother yelled at me and asked me what as wrong, I spilled the beans.
“Lola, what on earth is the matter?”
“It doesn’t matter, you will yell at me any way!” .
“Lola! Will you just tell me what is going on!”
My mom looked at me, like I had just murdered someone, she was shocked just as much as I was.
My mom continued to yell at me, she even tried to make me go and have an abortion, unknowing that I was too far along with my surprise pregnancy.
“Thats it, I am taking you to the hospital.”
“Mom, I am almost six months pregnant, its too late now..”
“You stupid, stupid little girl, go to your room, I do not want to see your face again!
I had never seen my mother act in the way she did today, as the day drew to an end, I got undressed and went to sleep.
As usual my mother woke me up at the normal 6:30 AM, I got dressed and ready for school, hoping that no body at school will notice my growing stomach. So to prevent it from happening I wore kinda baggy jumpers, which looked ridiculous.
My mother sat me down on the sofa and spoke to me.
“I am sorry for acting the way I did yesterday, it was just a huge shock.”
“Its okay mom, I understand, I was shocked too.”
“Lola, if you need anything for the baby and yourself, I will be here with you and when the time comes, I will be there for you, I promise.”
After my mom had said those words, I hugged her, happy to have someone to support me through this.
Yet carrying around a baby was hard work, I had to fight the cravings of French Toast, tiredness and most of all, mood swings.
Well that is the end of the first chapter!
