16 and Pregnant

Lindsey Harrison is a teenager from Reno, Nevada.  She lives with her mother and younger sister in a space so small, she and her sister share a bed.  She also has two older sisters who no longer live at home, but all of the girls are super close.  Lindsey has been with her boyfriend Forest Ponce for three years…oh, and she aspires to be a detective and a cage fighter.  Yes, you read that correctly.  Hmm…what else can I say about Lindsey?  Oh yes, she’s 16 and Pregnant of course!  Lindsey also sports a giant tattoo across her belly…

Lindsey reveals to her friends that the couple often used condoms, but once time they forgot and she didn’t get pregnant.  Because of this, they felt they could be more lax with contraceptives.  Both Lindsey’s mother and boyfriend had hoped she would get an abortion.  Forest even broke up with Lindsey for a few months when she decided to keep the baby.  Now, however, he seems excited about having a daughter who they are planning to name Aniyah.  Keeping it in the franchise, I must note that Forest looks like the love child of Chelsea Houska’s Adam Lind and Jenelle’s mistake Kieffer Delp.  Attractive, no?  Lindsey is glad that Forrest is being more supportive, but she really wishes he would take the initiative to get a job.

Lindsey is hanging out with her older sister Dallas.  She tells her sister that she now must put aside her dreams of going pro with cage fighting at age eighteen.  Lindsey hasn’t even told her trainer that she is pregnant since he is such a father figure to her.  In an effort to spark her enthusiasm, Lindsey’s mother encourages her to go to a cage match.  Lindsey is concerned that she’ll see someone she used to train with who will reveal her secret to her trainer.  She and her mother are bickering a lot, so she finds herself spending a lot of time at Forest’s house.  Lindsey hopes he’ll want her to move in with him.  They both think that makes the most sense for their growing family.

Lindsey goes shopping for baby gear and is a bit defeated to find out how much the necessities will cost.  She lunches with Forest, and basically they can afford the crib.  As she’s the only one with a job, he is going to need to step up to the plate.  He promises to start looking.  Lindsey discusses potentially moving in with Forest with her other older sister Lacey.  She thinks that if they live separately, both homes must be equipped for their daughter, essentially doubling the cost.  Lacey seems skeptical about Forest helping as much as Lindsey expects.

After a week, Forest has yet to start his job search while Lindsey is seven months pregnant and taking on extra shifts at McDonald’s.  Over dinner with Forest and his mom and sister, his mother broaches the subject of Lindsey moving in with the family.  His mom Dora doesn’t want her son working and trying to go to school and complete his homework.  Apparently, it’s okay that Lindsey does though.  The couple argues after dinner, and it ends with Forest hanging up on Lindsey.

Later that night, Lindsey starts to have contractions…very scary considering she is still two months from her due date.  Of course, Forest refuses to answer his phone.  She’s admitted to the hospital.  They schedule a shot to clear out the baby’s lungs in the event Lindsey goes into pre-term labor.  As early as it is, there is a risk the baby’s lungs haven’t fully developed.  The following day, Lindsey’s contractions have subsided, and she is frustrated that she still has yet to hear from Forest.  She is released from the hospital and ordered to adhere to strict bed rest.  Her sister Dallas comes to retrieve her from the hospital and is disgusted to hear how Forest is acting.  She thinks Lindsey deserves much better than Forest.  I tend to agree.

Last night’s 16 and Pregnant introduced us to Briana DeJesus, a Brooklyn teen who now resides with her mother and older sister in Orlando, Florida.  She graduated a year early from high school and is looking forward to starting college in the fall.  She and her former boyfriend, Devoin, decided to keep the baby, although the couple soon ended their relationship.  Even harder?  Her sister Brittany got pregnant at the same time and decided to have an abortion.  Briana reveals to her friend that they pair didn’t use protection, because it was too awkward to talk about – you know what else is awkward…having everyone up in your business for nine months.  Teens say the darndest things.

Both sisters seem almost envious of the others’ choice.  Briana has no support from her baby’s father, but she feels like she is flaunting her pregnancy in front of her sister.  Brittany claims she chose abortion after seeing how hard it was for her sister, and she promises to go out and have fun while Briana is stuck home with her baby.  However, Brittany can’t change the choice she made, and she admits that it is hard for her to watch Briana’s pregnancy progress.  Mother and daughters share a tearful moment.

Devoin hasn’t spoken to Briana in over a month, but she still holds out hope that he will be there for their daughter.  Her mom agrees to allow him to spend the night a few times a week to help, but she has no intentions of turning into his personal hotel.  Seeing as Devoin won’t return Briana’s calls or texts, she may not have anything to worry about.  She discusses baby names with her mother, who quickly rules out Bliss, as it sounds too much like a stripper name.  Briana is leaning towards the name Nova.

Briana, Brittany, and their friends have a fun time making t-shirts, with Briana decorating hers with stars and the word Nova.  She texts Devoin about naming the baby.  Briana has made up her mind about Nova, and Devoin thinks he should at least get a vote.  She says she will let him choose the last name…but if Devoin wants Nova to have his last name, he’s really going to have to step up to the plate.  Devoin is not keen on getting a job to assist with the baby.  He feels like he’s being forced into finding work.  Doesn’t Briana know how stressed out he is?  Devoin is very indifferent to his ex-girlfriend’s tears.  D-to-the-ouchebag!

Last night’s premiere of 16 & Pregnant’s fourth season gave viewers double the baby mama drama with two new episodes. The first episode introduces us to cheerleader Mackenzie Douthit and her bull riding beau Josh McKee from Oklahoma.

Mackenzie loves going to the rodeo with her friends to watch her boyfriend compete, only this time she’s got an extra person with her…in her belly. She’s a rising junior in high school, and Josh has graduated. Mackenzie doesn’t want to get too far behind with her cheerleading goals, so she still attends practices (to watch), and she plans to jump right back in to the tumbling and pom poms as soon as possible. Josh appears to be very supportive, and the couple seems to have fun together.

Mackenzie puts a lot of pressure on Josh to plan for their future, and her family doesn’t think that she realizes what a change this will be in her life. After her sisters plead with her not to name the poor child “Cowbell,” her mother inquires as to why she wasn’t more careful. Duh! As a cheerleader, she didn’t want to take the Pill and risk getting fat. Um…I don’t want to point out the obvious, but…

Guess what – 16 & Pregnant is back! The fourth season of the controversial show will chronicle twelve new teen girls, as they struggle through pregnancy and the dramatic ups and downs associated with having a child as a young parent – including navigating complicated relationships with parents, boyfriends, and friends.

This season will continue to show a variety of different choices the moms make, from adoption, abortion, and choosing to raise their child alone or with a partner.

One teen determines if adoption is the right choice for her child, because she fears she will be a single mother due to her boyfriends unreliability. Another teen mother will choose to keep her child while her sister, also pregnant, opted to have an abortion. And of course, one mother will be forced to put her college plans on hold after she decides to raise her baby.

The teens will also struggle in relationships with their own parents, who are often conflicted on how to help and support their child through teen pregnancy and parenthood. One teen will fight to raise her baby while dealing with her drug addicted parent, and another girl’s mother disapproves of her child’s father. There will be “baby daddy” drama, as the girls learn that being a teen mom is much harder than it looks! Which, you would think after many seasons of watching this show they would have figured out by now. Apparently, not.

Additionally, MTV has decided to take on Teen Mom 3! Hopefully, this crop will fare better than the originals and the juniors! I’m looking at you, Portwood and Evans!

A trailer for the new season of 16 & Pregnant is below!

It’s Life After Labor for the girl’s of MTV’s season three of 16 and Pregnant. Dr. Drew is on hand to host the reunion and ask the hard-hitting questions, as he interviews Jordan Ward, Jennifer Del Rio, Jamie McKay, Danielle Cunningham, Cleondra Carter, Kayla Jackson, Izabella Tovar, Kianna Randall, Taylor Lumas, and Allie Mendoza.

First in the hot seat is Jordan Ward and her husband Brian Finder. You may remember that Jordan was at the center of a tug-of-war between her twin sister Jessica and Brian. An emotional Jordan reveals to Dr. Drew that she felt the need to have sex so soon because of insecurities brought upon by a very unstable upbringing. On the reunion, the couple explains that they are happily married and living with their son Noah in St. Louis with Jordan’s grandparents and sister Jessica. Jessica now sings Brian’s praises. Both twins get teary when talking about the future. Jessica is so proud that she is the first in her family to go to college, but is distraught that her sister isn’t able to do the same. Jordan still hopes to make something of herself, but admits it’s hard to even think of the financial burden that school loans would bring to her new family. Brian has enlisted in the Air Force, and as we know from recent news, the couple is expecting their second child…although that tidbit was not addressed with Dr. Drew.

It’s the ninety minute finale of 16 and Pregnant, and of course, MTV saved the worst for last. Tragic. This episode follows Allie Mendoza, a sixteen year old senior in Pasadena, Texas, who is having a baby boy with her boyfriend Joey Aranzeta. Joey is two years younger, and is the one person who makes Texas bearable for Allie. She moved to Texas with her dad from New Jersey, and she very much misses her mom. Shocker! She found out she was pregnant after just two to three months of dating (I feel like I was in high school in the Stone Ages…do teens now just start having sex the minute they start dating?), and Double Shocker! She’s, “um, on the Pill” but missed a couple of days.

Allie reveals that she had to move out of her dad’s house when she got pregnant, so of course, she moves right in with her boyfriend’s parents. Joey’s mom Yolanda admits that she met Allie once, and the next time she saw her son’s girlfriend, she was pregnant. Allie is uncomfortable staying there, and that is compounded by the fact that Yolanda struggles with drug abuse. The couple wishes they could live with Joey’s grandmother Belen, but space is an issue. Of course, the grandmother even states that Yolanda doesn’t know how to be a mom, and there are more revelations about what life is like in the House of Yolanda. Late night visitors, screaming matches, and a basically unsafe (according to Yolanda’s son Joey) environment. Yoland’a mother Belen hosts a family meeting which basically becomes a round table for bashing Allie’s father for kicking her out for getting pregnant.

Taylor Lumas
On Tuesday’s episode of 16 and Pregnant, we meet Taylor Lumas from Cincinnati, Ohio. Taylor became pregnant at fourteen by her boyfriend of a year older, track star Nathan Bridewell. The couple met at a roller skating party. Taylor lives with her mother Debi and really doesn’t have much of a relationship with her father. Her older sister Jeana lives down the street with her family. Also down the block? Nathan…and it’s a good thing too, since neither teen is old enough to drive yet.

Taylor talks to her friend about how nervous she was to tell her mother about her pregnancy. She tells her friend she considered using food coloring on tampons so her mother would think she was still having her period. Nothing screams maturity and readiness for parenthood like using kitchen fixings to hide a pregnancy. At seventeen, Taylor’s mom gave up a baby for adoption before giving birth to Taylor, and she is hoping her daughter also chooses that path. The young couple is having a girl and are totally opposed to adoption.

Kianna Randall is the seventeen-year-old rising high school senior highlighted in this week’s episode of 16 and Pregnant. She lives in Fort Worth, Texas, and her boyfriend of two months, Zak Hegab, lives thirty minutes away and attends a different high school. Both Kianna and Zak grew up without their fathers, and they are viewing this baby in light of that…but with very different opinions.

The daughter of a teen mom, Kianna is intelligent and well-spoken. She wants to go to college and become a veterinarian. We learn her mother Rachel was very open with Kianna in hopes of not having her daughter in the same position she was in during high school. Kianna admits that she got pregnant after forgetting to take her birth control pill for three days. Kianna reveals that she briefly considered abortion, but is now contemplating adoption, so that her baby can have the life she will be unable to give him…and she will be able to have the life she planned for herself. The couple is having a boy.
