After a few weeks, I started to feel sick every morning, so I went to the hospital one morning, and they said I might not be drinking enough iron. They took a pregnancy test, and it came out positive. I didn’t know what to do. I was only 18, and I still had depression. So, I tried to think on the brighter side. I decided to keep my baby.
