16 and Pregnant Preview: Nicole

16_and_pregnant Aside from contending with the fears, immaturity, and complicated feelings that go along with a teen pregnancy, occasionally the parents featured on 16 and Pregnant do something that really highlights the fact that they are teenagers in a way that's really bittersweet.

I'm not talking about easily demonized things like Jenelle going out a lot and leaving her son with her agitated mom or Nikkole contending with her dipshit boyfriend, Josh. I'm talking about small moments like this one, below where Nicole's pre-baby shower slumber part with her friends is cut short when she starts having contractions mid-prank call.


MTV's 16 and Pregnant - MTV Shows

MTV.com doesn't have a lot of information about this episode. Hopefully I'll get some more sneak peeks later on the day, so be sure to check back!

In the meantime, I wanted to talk about last week's episode a little bit. I really loved Samantha and I think even if she and Eric aren't able to make their relationship work, they'll both maintain a good partnership for their daughter. I wanted to hear Samantha talk more about her identity as a "good girl" and how her pregnancy changed that. Her monologue about how she is still a good girl, she just had a baby, was so poignant. Of course she's still a good girl (er, woman?). Having a baby in less than ideal circumstances doesn't automatically make you a bad person.

I also want to direct a giant WTF toward Eric's mother about facilitating their sneaking around and then getting defensive about it. I understand that she felt that Eric was heartbroken about not being able to see Samantha, and perhaps Samantha's parents could have been less alarmist about the whole thing. But she did end up getting pregnant. And...like...WHY would Eric's mom just let them be alone? If she wanted to help them see each other, couldn't she have at most sneaked Samantha to their family room to watch a movie all together or something? Or did she really not think that those two would have sex by helping them sneak around. I just don't understand. And even though she apologized she still seemed kind of surprised that Samantha's mom was pissed at her. WACKY.

At first, I'm thinking "Get up, she's having pains! Go take her to the hospital, teenagers! DO SOMETHING!" Then, I realize that they are teenagers....

I totally agree with what you wrote about Eric's mother. She has no right to be defensive. She needed to apologize to EVERYONE for being an adult and making a poor decision.
