“My Girlfriend, A Possible Baby Daddy, And Me” (A Guest Blog From Natasha)

Let me start by saying that my story is not a pretty one. I’m 18-years-old and a freshman in college. I’m in love with my girlfriend (yes, gf….I am bi, she’s gay). We’ve been dating for almost 6 months now. My girlfriend doesnt approve of me having any kind of relationship with a guy whatsoever. She said if I want to “talk” to a guy then we should just end the relationship period. I can’t imagine my life without her so I told her that I wanted to be with her even if it meant that I had to give up guys. That’s easier said than done, though.

One night I was hanging out with my friend, her boyfriend, and a couple of their friends. I met this very cool guy and we hit it off. We didn’t really do anything that night but when we hung out again a few weeks later, we had unprotected sex. The next morning I went to Walmart, bought Plan B One Step and took it within 72 hours.

My period has always been irregular so I never know when it’ll come (or if it will come at all). There was a time when I didn’t have it for 3 months (I knew I wasn’t pregnant because I wasn’t sexually active then…at least not much, lol). I’m waiting and praying that my period will come soon because there is no way I can have a child right now. To be honest, I don’t really want a child, ever. My parents will kill me and I know that the baby daddy wont be there either.

I bought First Response so I can be sure I’m not pregnant after I get my period. But I don’t even know if I will get my period. I really hope I’m not pregnant but if I am, then I have no option but to keep the baby. I’m very against abortion and I don’t want to give up the baby to another person, even if that means I’m going to be a single teenage mother. If I could turn back time, I would definitely have made a different choice. But you know what they say…should’ve, could’ve, would’ve.

So I want to tell all the teenage girls out there that don’t think it can’t happen to you…because it can. And when you’re waiting to find out if you are pregnant or not, the time just seems to go sooooo much slower!

Take care everyone, God Bless and thanks for reading my story :)
