so my little one has got a very short time till shes here. Im due in april, on the 5th. Im so nervous, but at least my boyfriend still loves me and wants to stay. I was wondering though, his principal isnt offering anyway to make up for days he'll miss for my labor, isnt there SOMETHING that they are suppost to offer? I mean the last i checked, if you had mono or something missing school didnt mean you failed, why should it be different when youre going to be a father?

Good gosh gal!! Where have you been?! Pretty busy obviously... *smile* I wondered where you went for I haven't seen you in quite some time! So you're going to have a baby?!! Wow!! Awesome!! Do you know what it is? Remember, I live just down the road from you so if you ever need anything, let me know!! As for your boyfriends school principle, sometimes men (your boyfriend) don't get their point across properly so maybe if YOU talked to his principle maybe you can get the answer you're seeking. Worth a try anyway.

that youre right about, and i just havent had much to get on here for with steven over so much, lol. Im glad to know youre that close and that i could call on you if i needed to, and yeah i know what it is, its a little girl and shes doing great according to the docs. im going for an ultrasound the 4th to make sure its a girl, but yeah. i thought about talking to her but to be honest, his mom even talked and all she did was say "its his fault shes in this situation and theres nothing i can do for him" she was really rude.

A little girl... awwww!! Do you have a name picked out for her yet? I can imagine you're excited and nervous all at the same time. Bless your heart! I'm sorry about the asinine principle. Like she's never made a mistake in her life, yeah right. She'll get hers one day. You watch and see. She will get hers one day.

yeah we're gonna name her Natalie Marie (: and i agree, plus i dont worry about finishing school, i know im strong enough to do it, and i know he is too. he doesnt have to live with baby till he graduates, because hes from greensboro, but he'll be down every weekend, and most wednesdays if he can to help out. hes more excited than i am. lol

There is only a certain amount of class he can miss - I believe it is 14 days - before they can fail him. SO if he just takes off for the labor, he shouldn't miss much time at all.

they told him that hes "on the road to failing" and hes only missed 4 days. I really dont understand how she can be so rude just because she doesnt agree with teen pregnancy.

There may be more to the story. Since he is missing class, what else is he not doing? He may not be turning in homework, skipping classes, or failing test. I can imagine that he is quite distracted and I am sure that is taking a lot away from his class work. Think about her position. She still has to do her job. It is her job to get his butt in the school, mot to worry about if he will be there for your child's birth. She can't treat him special because then she would have to treat every teenage father special and that is not fair to anyone. Since he wants to graduate, I highly suggest that he not miss any class except on the day you are actually in labor. That way he is there for the birth and not getting into any possible trouble at school.

well hes not skipped any, hes not missed tests, hes stayed after school to make up work and hes making a's and b's in AP classes so she really has no room to say hes on the road to failure. hes not stupid, he knows he has responsibility and he knows he has to make up work that he misses. she just doesnt think he's going to graduate for some reason. its rude, same as my doctor, he asked me how much school i "got" to finish. im sorry but to imply that i wouldnt finish school is a little rude for a doctor. im in college and have been since almost 17.

I would have him talk to all his teachers and get the assignments that he would miss. Is there a friend who can give him the notes from the class he missed. He could even give them a tape recorder so he can listen to the classes.

Hi I just came across your original post and wondered how you were getting on with your baby. Hope things are going OK for you, your baby (Natalie) and your boyfriend and that both of you manage to graduate school with great marks - just to teach your principal a lesson. Violetdreamslingerie
