My period was late so I decided to take a cheap pregnancy test just to set my mind at ease. This wasn’t the first time I’d had a scare & I knew it was best to get it over with so I could move on with my day.
But this time was different. This time, it was positive.
My heart started racing as I tried to process what I was seeing. How could I have been so foolish? He said he loved me and I wanted to believe him. That was over a month ago and now here I am, pregnant and alone.
How could this happen to me? I wasn’t going to be the girl that got pregnant in college, yet here I am with two years left to graduate. I need to talk to somebody, but who could I trust?! My friends won’t understand, my parents will judge me and there’s no way I can afford a doctor. What am I going to do?
Can you relate?
