I became pregnant with my first child last year in my late 30's! I was elated and filled with an unexplained amount of love for this being simply for being a part of me. I didn't know that my heart can open so big.


In 2012, I was 18 years old, a freshman at the University of San Francisco. On November 07, 2012 I found out that I was pregnant by my high school boyfriend of 2 years. As I stood there in Walgreens bathroom staring down at the pregnancy test, I couldn't register what I was looking at.


I was 22 when I started dating my current boyfriend. We quickly fell in love with each other and became inseparable. Because of our close connection, I trusted the pull out method when we had sex. It wasn't more than 3 months since we'd been having sex when I became pregnant, but I didn't find out until almost 2 months (7 weeks to be precise) later.


I have been in a relationship with my boyfriend for five years. I am very blessed to have such a wonderful partner; he's sweet, he moved out of state with me for work, he supports (most things) I do and he loves me. For these reasons, I know one day, I want to have a baby with him.
