...that teenagers can get pregnant without even trying, and that I need to not be so shocked!?! Probably not. Yesterday a co-worked told me her 16 year old granddaughter is knocked-up. (It is "knocked-up" and not expecting, pregnant, or with child when they are 16.) And not just a little bit, she is 5 months!!
Pick jaw up off floor and push eyes back into sockets.
And she just had her first OB appointment last week. Did I mention she lived with her grandmother, my co-worker, when she conceived?? Oh and she was on BCP to help prevent this kind of a mess. But at 16 who can really expect her to take that tiny pill everyday at precisely the exact same time as the day before as noted in the instructions.
My first words out were, "She's pregnant! B is pregnant!" "I wish I could give it to you," was her reply. I wish so too!
I would like to say that there are not two, but three guarantees in this life... death, taxes, and undeserved pregnancies.
***Yes, she will be keeping the baby and raising it with her drug abusing mother and mom's new live-in boyfriend. B's boyfriend is out of the picture, surprise, surprise.
