A/N: Wow, i updated faster than i thought i would! haha. First day of school was so boring, and only 192 more to go! *Sigh*
Hope you like this chapter, and sorry for mistakes!
Over the next few weeks, I had been getting really weird feelings, like a sick feeling. And not just a 'cold kind of sick,' but like a 'sick to my stomach' kind of sick. I had even gotten sick at Austin's press conference, which sucked, because I had to leave within ten minutes of being there. It was the worst the third week.
Austin told me I had probably just caught the flu from Dez, but his had only lasted a day, and it had been almost four weeks for me. Plus, Dez had the flu over a month ago.
I flipped off the TV and walked into the kitchen to make myself breakfast. Austin had just left for a CD signing, but I couldn't go because I had an early shift at work.
I made myself a bowl of Fruit Loops and a big glass of chocolate milk. Chocolate milk made everything better. It was almost as good as pickles. Mmm, pickles.
While I was eating breakfast, I suddenly felt nauseous, so I ran to the bathroom to throw up.
What the hell is wrong with me? I wondered as I finished and brushed my teeth again. This has never happened before.
I didn't realize it until I sat down at the table again in front of my breakfast, and it hit me like a ton of bricks.
Maybe I was- No, I couldn't be. There's no way I could be…pregnant. Could there?
Forgetting about my breakfast completely, I bolted upstairs and grabbed my birth control.
"1, 2, 3, 4, 5," I muttered as I started counting how many pills were left. "14, 15, 16…16."
My eyes widened. 16? I was only supposed to have 13!
I checked my chart and ran my finger over it, figuring out when I was supposed to have taken the pills. Apparently, according to the chart, I had forgotten to take one two days before Austin and I had our 'adult time,' the day after that, and the day when we actually had sex.
I grabbed the cordless and dialled Trish's number. She picked up on the fourth ring.
"Ally, I'm kind of busy at the CD signing, so this better be important," she said over the phone.
"Oh, it is. Are Austin or Dez with you right now?"
"Um, no, they're at the food table. Why?"
"Because you're going to freak out when I tell you this."
"I doubt it."
"Alright then. I need you to go buy me a pregnancy test," I told her.
There was silence for a few seconds before, "What the hell, Ally!? Are you mother trucking serious right now!?"
I swear, it's like I'm psychic or something.
"How do you think I feel?" I exclaimed. "I'm the one who might be carrying a baby! Tell Austin and Dez something came up and you have to leave."
"Just do it and bring the test to our house as soon as you buy it!" I shrieked into the phone before hanging up.
Next, I quickly called in sick at work before cleaning up my breakfast. I paced in the kitchen until I heard a knock at the door.
I ran to it and whipped it open to find Trish standing there with a box of pregnancy sticks.
"You're-" she started, but I pulled her inside and shut the door behind her.
"Why didn't you tell-" I grabbed the box and ran to the bathroom before she could finish again. "Ally, would you just tell me what the hell is going on!?"
Ignoring her, I closed the door and opened the box hastily. I ripped open one of the tests before doing it.
Trish was sitting on the counter in the kitchen when I walked out. "You have to wait five minutes. It's one of the tests that shows how far along you are too."
She nodded. "So, you think you're pregnant? Are you sure it's not just the flu? You might have caught it from Dez, Ally."
"It's not the flu, those usually last like, a day, and this has been going on for almost four weeks. Plus, I only feel it in the morning, and I forgot to take three pills, Trish! Three!"
Her eyes widened. "Three?"
I nodded. "Three! I've been so busy with Austin's event and work that it must have slipped my mind."
"How can you be sexually active and let it slip your mind that you have to take the pills for them to actually work?" Trish asked.
"I don't know!" I exclaimed, grabbing a chunk on my hair to chew on. "It just happened!"
"What are you going to tell Austin?"
"Oh no, Austin. What do I tell him if it's positive? He doesn't want kids right now!"
"Would you consider adoption?" Trish asked. "A kid is a lot of responsibility, and you're barely 19."
"No, I remember Austin telling me he would never give his child up for adoption no matter what, and I wouldn't want to either. Abortion is completely out of the question too, that's for sure," I told her.
"No offence, Ally, but Austin probably meant when he was like, twenty five or thirty he would never give his child up for adoption, when he actually wanted kids," Trish said. "You know, when it's a planned baby."
"You are so not helping," I glared.
She raised her hands in surrender. "Sorry, I'm just saying."
I shook my head. "No, Austin wouldn't do that, he wouldn't have the heart." Would he?
She shrugged and looked at her watch. "Five minutes is up."
I took a deep breath. "Here it goes." I walked back into the bathroom to check the stick, and my heart started racing a mile a minute.
It had a little + sign. I couldn't believe it.
I was pregnant. With Austin's baby.
I picked the stick up shakily and went out to Trish. She jumped down when she saw me.
"Well?" she asked.
I showed her the sign. "Looks like I'm going to be a mother."
She gasped. "How far along?"
"A month and two weeks!" i said. "I thought it would only be like, three or four weeks!" I sat down on the kitchen chair, put my head in my hands, and started to bawl.
"This can't be happening, Trish, not now! We're 19; we're too young to be parents yet! We're practically still teenagers!" I cried.
She came over and hugged me. "Oh, Ally."
"What am I supposed to tell Austin, huh?" I said, causing me to cry harder.
"The truth," she said.
I sniffed and wiped my eyes. "It's not a good time in his career to raise a kid."
"Ally, you never know what he'll say until you tell him. He might be happy!" Trish offered, trying to help.
"Fat chance of that. I told you, he said he didn't want kids yet. He's probably going to break up with me and leave me for another girl, one that doesn't forget to take her birth control and get herself pregnant at 19," I wailed.
"Ally!" Trish scolded. "Austin would never do that to you, he loves you to death!"
I felt another wave of nausea and I groaned. "Oh god, not again!" I jumped up and went to throw up yet again.
I came back out to find Trish on the phone. "Okay, yes, everything's okay." She looked up when she heard me come out. "Oh, sorry Austin, I have to go. Yes, I'm sure. Okay, bye."
She hung up and turned to me. "Austin wanted to see if everything was okay."
"Wait, what did you tell him?"
"I told him that something came up, like you told me to," she replied.
I breathed a sigh of relief. "Thanks for not telling him."
"Of course, I wouldn't do that." She checked her watch. "Sorry Ally, but I really need to go."
"Okay, thanks for the help, T," I told her as I gave her a hug. "Sorry for taking you away from the signing."
"Always here. Call me if you need anything. And don't worry about it, it was awful anyways. I had to do so much work!"
I tilted my head, confused. "You never do work at a CD signing."
"I had to this time since you weren't there. Do you know how many times I had to open and close that rope at the front of the line?" she complained.
I laughed. Same old Trish. "I'll see you later."
"Bye! And good luck with Austin!" she called over her shoulder before shutting the door.
"You know, maybe it was just a fluke," I said to the empty kitchen when she was gone. "Maybe I do just have the flu."
I went back to the bathroom and spent the next hour using up all of the pregnancy tests, just to make sure.
After the last one, which was the twelfth one, I nodded. "Okay, not a fluke. I'm definitely pregnant."
I slid down the door, a whole bunch of thoughts racing through my mind, but the main one kept over-powering the others.
Austin and I are going to be parents. At 19 years old. And one thing is for sure.
I did NOT see that coming.
A/N: Hope you enjoyed it! Review, review, review! :)
Oh, and for Ally not believing she was pregnant and ended up taking twelve tests, believe me, it happens. My cousin just had her baby last month, and she took seven pregnancy tests before she believed she was pregnant. And she's 25. So yeah, at any age, it can happen haha
Plus, i've heard that if you miss even one birth control pill, you can very easily get pregnant, and Ally missed three, so the chances are high haha. And three weeks, almost a month, is a sufficient amount of time before you realize you're pregnant. Just going by my cousin's experience for guidance.
Next chapter…Ally tells Austin! :o what will he say? You'll have to read and find out! More reviews I get, the faster I upload!
