'16 and Pregnant' Recap: Maddy Makes Decisions Without Consulting Her Baby's Daddy

16 and pregnant maddyWith the latest season of Teen Mom 2 ending last week, we didn't have to wait too long for our next 16 and Pregnant round to begin. The latest season started tonight with Maddy, a rising high school junior from Tinley Park, Illinois.

Sixteen-year-old Maddy lives with her mom, brother, sister, and baby half-sister (Maddy's mom gave birth three months before Maddy did) and has been an active athlete in school. But things took a turn for the much, much worse when she broke up with her boyfriend and went looking for a rebound. After finding Cody online, and after only an hour of knowing each other, the two hooked up, and boom, Maddy was pregnant.

That's right. They only knew each other for an hour before Maddy got pregnant. Is that a 16 and Pregnant record? Can anyone tell me?

And since Maddy's house was quickly filling up, especially with her newborn baby sister, Maddy and her mom had one of the most heartbreaking conversations on the show. Her mom had apparently told her previously that if she ever got pregnant, she would be kicked out. And mom stayed true to her promise. Maddy's mom allowed her to stay in the house for one month after the baby was born. After that, she had to either move to Cody's house or to her dad's (who lives an hour away in Indiana). Wow, I understand that the space might be tight, but forcing her to move to another state or to the home of a boy she barely knows is a little harsh, mom.

But Cody, along with his seemingly supportive parents, agreed to take in Maddy after her allowed one-month stay at home. They even went as far as to remake their current dining room into a baby nursery. They put up walls, fixtures, and new furniture all to house the baby. Maddy, meanwhile, would be sleeping in Cody's room. In a separate bed, strangely. What a perfect set-up for all those late-night pillow talks!

To make matters weirder, Maddy and Cody had never even been on a date. Err, unless you count that time they went to buy the pregnancy test, that is. But they finally went out to dinner and hung out for the first time when she was already nine months pregnant. And that didn't even go smoothly. The pair almost immediately began arguing over the baby's last name. Cody wanted his, but Maddy strongly refused.

Ultimately, she made the decision and little Aubrey Lynn took Maddy's last name. If their relationship wasn't already strained, this sure didn't help.

When it finally came time to bring little Aubrey home and then move out of her mom's house, Maddy made yet another painful decision. And without any input from Cody. She decided to move to her dad's house. In the end, I can't really blame her. Cody only visited his daughter twice during her first two months, and even those interactions seemed to last one hot sec.

It clearly seems like Maddy will have to make plenty more decisions for her baby in the future. But hopefully Cody gets more involved.

Should Maddy have moved in with Cody or did she make the right decision?

She is she should have told his mom before she spent all that money.

We all face these moments in life once we don't achieve our goals despite our best efforts. We might not find our soulmate or our dream job. It may be too late to have extra kids and the beautiful house in the great school district could also be out of our reach. Marriages might break up despite our greatest efforts to avoid wasting them or our youngsters http://www.psychologwawa.com.pl - http://psychologwawa.com.pl is probably not as motivated as we would like them to be. What do you do when the goals and desires you may have carefully planned and labored exhausting to achieve are not in the cards for you?

Maddy was probably the most annoying 16 & pregnant girl yet. Rude, stubborn, and bitchy. And she never should have agreed to move in with Cody when she knew full well she wasn't going to. And then tells him over text she's moving an hour away. I couldn't stand her.

This girl needs to grow up like really fast. First off all she is thinking about is herself, and who is going to helpher with the baby. Many girls have babies and they have to do it all by themselves, but this girl is so selfish. Then she let poor Cody's parents spend all that money to make the baby a room and at the last minute Miss Selfish changed her mind and went to her fathers. I do not like this girl or her mother.

She knew all along she didn't want to move in with him. She should have said something a long time ago. Now at least they can still use the room for the baby when she does comeover. He should start seeing her more often. They are young and i'm sure she is going to be making plenty more mistakes. Live and learn.

I missed the first ten minutes of the episode, but I assumed the baby was the result of a random hook up. I think this is totally one of those situations where adoption or abortion would have been appropriate. It's one thing for a teen to get pregnant by a boyfriend, but a total stranger? Maddy has NO idea the kind of father this kid would have turned out to be, she didn't know one thing about him as a person.

WTF was up with her hair?! I couldn't get passed the weird shaved hairline she had going on.

I'm glad to know I was not alone in my negative feelings about Maddy. I kept thinking...she has no idea how good she has it. All she did was bitch and complain.
