I met David when I was 11 years old (at this point I was living in Hawaii). I spent every summer on the north shore of Oahu with my family in Kawela Bay. He was one of our neighbors. When I first saw him he was 17 years old, a senior in High-school and going out with some girl. He was the teenager, that was never too cool to play with us little kids. I had a lot of fun growing up in that bay with all of our friends and family.
The summer I turned 15 I moved back to Tahiti. I finished up school, and was just busy being young. I had gone out with a couple of boys but was never serious about any of them. And then on my 17th birthday, David happened to be flying down to Tahiti, to spend a few months living with my family in order to surf (David is a surf FREAK). Needless to say, I wasn’t the little girl he used to know, I had grown up. It was as if a dream were coming true. I had always had a MAJOR crush on David, but never thought that it would amount to anything. And yet, here we were, falling in love on an island in the middle of the south pacific ocean. David ended up staying in Tahiti for a year with me.
We moved to Hawaii when I was 18. However, after a few failed attempts at living on our own (it’s very expensive to live in Hawaii). We decided that a couple months on the mainland would give us enough time to save up some cash to move back to Hawaii, and be able to live comfortably. Being a lifeguard, David was able to get a Job with the city lifeguards in cali. I worked as a Tahitian Dancer with a Lu’au party. Our jobs were stable and we enjoyed life, however a few months turned into five which turned into 12.
I had been on birth control since moving to Hawaii. However, when David and I had concieved I had been slacking at taking my pills on time. We were having problems before it happened. He was homesick, and so was I. He didn’t trust me, and in turn I began to distrust him. When I found out I was pregnant I was already 10 weeks along. I was working up the courage to tell David, until one day when I came home from work. All of his belongings were gone. No explanation, no warning, nothing.
Why is it that men seem to feel that being pregnant isn’t that hard? I mean for pete’s sake! I’m growing a human being! Even if you are not in a relationship with the woman you knocked up you should still at least HELP her.
Why did you have to leave? was I not good enough? You never gave me any reason. One day you were just gone. And now I’m stuck in Santa Monica while you get to enjoy your life in Hawaii. David, this is YOUR baby. Please just a little assistance would be very much appreciated.
CALL ME BACK!
I feel like I put on a lot of weight this week. Not being able to keep my food down has not been a problem for me lately. My problem has been keeping my mouth closed. I went from 145-150 in only a few days (and my stomach, in my opinion, looks a lot bigger than normal).
My back is absolutely KILLING me, I just want to lay flat on the ground all day. My muscles also hurt like crazy, I’ve never heard of anyone else having that symptom. Heart burn is another one of the lovely symptoms I have picked up this past week. I can barely eat an apple with out feeling that hot sensation in my chest. >.<
My skin, has also gone down the drain. I have gotten eczema, and horrible acne.
This week I did nothing of note. I went to class, went to work, came home, and slept. Of course there is a lot of eating and peeing between those activities.
