I got pregnant at 14 but I did better in my GCSEs than I would if I wasn't pregnant because Ifelt I had something to prove. Remember how old I told you I was when you're asked? 18...19...19. Do you think mummy is different to the other mummies and daddies or not? Ithink you're different. Why do you think I'm different? Because not all mummies and daddiesare the same. That's very true. That's a very true comment. When people find out I've got afour-year-old daughter they are at first shocked and the next question they always ask if theydon't know me is how old are you? You don't look old enough to have a child.
Look back on it now I do feel a bit silly because it was kind of really like, you know, I' m in lovewith him, we're going to be together forever. It was kind of, you know, a crash back to realitywhen we found out that I was pregnant. He's a young lad, he's 14 years old, you can't blamehim for not wanting that. And obviously it's not something I was aspiring towards, you know,having a child so young. I think obviously I dealt with it a lot better than he did. Most of mypregnancy was kind of I didn't feel like I could openly enjoy it due to worrying about people'sjudgments and kind of what they would say what they would do. I couldn't have done it, quitesimply, without my mum. So it was really scary but I was more scared for her. I'm an adult, youknow, I've had my own kids. I've not had money. I've had money. I know how it works. I wasscared for her. Hi. Come here. Oh, you're heavy. I was never a model student at school, I wasnever going to get straight As. But I think I did much better than I would have if I didn't haveNuala because I think that kind of really focused me.
