So we’ve decided to try something new! We would like to welcome Hannah as our first Spotlight Young Mom who is still in the pregnancy stage of motherhood!
Hannah is a pregnant teen who is expecting her first baby and wants to share her story. Read about her story so far and what she has already been dealing with before even having her son.
Tell us about yourself and your family:
I’m 17 years old and 6 months pregnant to the wonderful Remi James. His dad isn’t in our lives, but we have tons of love from the rest of my family .
What were your biggest concerns when you first found out you were pregnant? How did you handle it?
When I found out I was pregnant I had severe depression. I said I would kill myself before I had a baby. I didn’t want to have that lifestyle of being a young mom. When I saw my first ultrasound, the snot and tears poured out like a river. Now, after 5 months, I couldn’t be happier being pregnant. Remi saved my life from possible suicide and definitely saved me from cutting and other self harms to myself.
What kinds of things do you do to treat yourself, for fun and to stay relaxed?
Pedicures are a must have for relaxing! The people who do my nails are always asking about the baby. I also enjoy taking long baths with the water below my belly, of course.
What are your favorite things about being a mom
My favorite thing is laying on my back and feeling the baby kick and move. Also the cute clothes and toys, of course .
Where do you see yourself in 5 years? If you didn’t have any obstacles, what dream would you pursue?
I hope to be a successful hairdresser and makeup artist and I hope to do makeup for celebrities and such.
What advice would you give to other young girls who just found out they’re pregnant or recently became a mom?
Don’t let people’s stares bother you. They’re gonna look at you and whisper about your belly, but don’t let that bother you. Another thing is don’t let people call you stupid. You made a mistake. Your intelligence level or IQ has nothing to do with if you’re young or not. Everyone makes mistakes and anyone who has sex can become pregnant. Condoms break, things happen. You’re not dumb, you made a mistake that anyone can make.
