Your body is still growing inside until you reach about 19 years old and pregnancy will effect your body in more ways than one if you are still growing your self. I got pregnant at 16. I love my son and would never want to miss out on what I have gotten from raising him. I do wish it had been a little later in life though. I had my daughter at 29 and I think I am a much better parent to her than I was to my son. We were just to close in age. there are many options for a young girl who finds herself in this situation. The first thing to do is see a doctor, health Dept, or other professional in your area to find what is best for you. If you have found that you are expecting, I hope everything works out for you. If it someone else, thank you for caring about her enough to post this. Happy Easter and Welcome to myot.You are almost to 100 and A brand new star!!=o}
