16 and pregnant.

24 11 2009

this new show on MTV is awesome. it lets us in on the lives of 16 year old American teenage girls who get pregnant and shows us the struggles they go through and the decisions they are forced to make. How one told her parents she was pregnant by texting them (!) and how another struggled to look after her baby and study for her exams to complete her education and motherhood forced her to grow up and give up a lot of things she loves for her baby while her good for nothing baby-daddy slept at night and wouldn’t take his turn at changing diapers and feeding times. They have the baby deciding to get married after it’s born but when Baby Bentley arrives, his mum and dad are constantly fighting and bickering and they then realise that they are not in love and they made a huge mistake and that they’re both trying to make it work because they have a kid. In the end they realise that the only reason that they’re together is because they have a child together and that may not be a good enough reason.



Gosh, it’s hard. I’m 23 and I don’t think I’ll be able to cope with another mouth to feed and all the crying at night.
