I too was a teen mom. After I got over the initial shock of being pregnant I celebrated my pregnancy and was very hurt when people made rude comments to me about how I should "be ashamed" or I was a "baby having a baby". I felt so much older than I was I guess. I did not look at my baby as a toy. And I really think I have turned out to be a wonderful mother to my child who is now 11.

But then I do know that there are some people, like the girl your describing wh do act immaturely about pregnancy. And I am currently trying to get pregnant and have fertility issues and it kills me when I see this. I have a young family member who is pregnant and was upset because she found out that after her baby is born she can not drink or smoke weed if she plans on breastfeeding!! I really wanted to smack her and ask her what the heck she is thinking.
