Hi, my name is Katrina, and I wanted to share my story of, trying to get pregnant, with all of you, so here it goes.
Ever since I was a little girl, I always loved dolls; I always asked my mom, if I could buy a real baby from the store, she’d laugh. As I got to the age of thirteen, I out grew dolls, but always, wanted to hold any baby I could, and never wanted to let go. My two older sisters have kids, and I would bug them to let me hold, change, feed, and rock them to sleep, it drove them nuts. I have wanted a baby so bad for as long as I could remember. It’s something, so strong in your heart you know, you just need to become whole, no matter who tells you, you’re too young, you could never handle it, you just know that this is what you need out of life, all you need. I am nineteen years old now, I still have not gotten pregnant, yet, out of respect for my partner, but as of yesterday, we decided we are going to try, and see what happens, we are a pretty stable couple, and I know will make great parents, even though we are so young. To get pregnant at nineteen might not be right for everyone, but I know it is for me. Now I take care of my sister’s one year old, and seven year old for eight or nine hours a day, and in doing so I have gained a lot of love, knowledge, strength, patience, and more than anything I am so grateful, to Alyssa (one year), Michel (seven years), and my sister for helping me to become who I am today. I can’t wait to be and expecting mom, it will truly be the greatest day of my life!!!!!!!!!!!!!
