'16 And Pregnant' Recap: Kristina Grieves Death Of Her Baby's Father

Tue, May 29, 2012 11:24pm EST by 21 Comments

The season finale of ’16 And Pregnant’ was truly devastating. Does Kristina find the strength to overcome the pain of losing her fiancé, Todd, for their baby’s sake?

Devon from last week’s episode was lucky enough to have her baby’s father in their life, but that’s not the case for all teen moms. Kristina Robinson’s fiancé and baby daddy John ‘Todd’ Jr. drowned while swimming off the coast of Galveston, Texas.

At age 16, life was great for the Dewberry, Texas teen. Kristina was about to go to prom and was happily in love and engaged to her high school sweetheart, Todd. But everything changed after a summer trip to the coast when a riptide pulled them both down. Kristina was saved but Todd did not survive.

The episode was filmed three months after the incident when Kristina was six months pregnant. Still wearing her engagement ring, Kristina hasn’t been able to let go of the memory of Todd and bottles up her emotions. She feels like no one understands her, including her own mother, Kim. Todd’s mother, Tina, is concerned that if she doesn’t open up, the stress of her emotions would cause trouble in her pregnancy.

And just like she predicted, at seven months pregnant, Kristina faces horrible contractions and has to go to the hospital. Once there, her doctor recommends that she stay in the hospital for the remainder of her pregnancy to make sure her baby is born healthy.

Feeling more alone than ever, Kristina opens up to her family during a visit. At a devastating point she says, “I’m tired of hurting. I’m tired of [Todd] not being here. I just want him. And I can’t stop. It’s not fair.”

After being in the hospital for a month and a half, the doctor says her baby can come out via C-section. Her baby boy, Lukas Todd, was born six weeks early weighing 3 lbs. 3 oz. Baby Lukas looks just like daddy — a bittersweet realization for the whole family. However, Lukas has to stay in intensive care for three weeks until he develops a bit more.

Back home without her baby, Kristina feels even more vulnerable: “I feel like I’m breaking, I feel like I can’t hold anything together. [Todd] would love that baby so much. I just want them both here.”

When Kristina finally brings little Lukas home, she realizes what it’s like to be a mom. She has to bathe, feed, and feels exhausted from not getting any sleep.

At a turning point, Kristina decides to go to a counselor to deal with her inner turmoil. Her counselor, Janna, allows the teen to face her grief and commits to helping her heal. At the end of the episode, Kristina finally lets herself move on and believes that things will be looking up for her and her baby.

When they compared the “official” vote results with a print-out
of the vote “projections” broadcast by the TV networks on the
final election night, they found that channel 4 had “projected” with near perfect accuracy
the results of 40 races with 250 candidates only 4 minutes after
the polls closed. In previous occasions
Anonymous has orchestrated attacks against websites using what are called ‘distributed denial of services attacks’.
‘ A “how to” haven used in all flavors of fraud, this site
teaches how to: shoplift clothes from retailers, steal tools from home repair
stores, use stolen credit cards, open garage doors and commit identity theft as well as murder disguised as suicide.

My family knew Little Todd. He was our sons best friend. Our son was also a pall bearer. He now has a tattoo on his shoulder that says RIP Todd. And under it has the chinesse symbol for brothers.

Bunch of stupid young women. Why not put the child up for adoption so that it can have a decent start in life?

Thanks for your concepts. One thing I’ve got noticed is the fact banks as well as financial institutions are aware of the spending patterns of consumers while also understand that most people max out there their real credit cards around the breaks. They sensibly take advantage of this kind of fact and commence flooding your inbox as well as snail-mail box along with hundreds of no-interest APR card offers right after the holiday season finishes. Knowing that in case you are like 98% of the American public, you’ll jump at the one opportunity to consolidate personal credit card debt and shift balances to 0 interest rates credit cards

What’s awful is how everyone seems to expect her to move on…just like most people–they get bored of hearing about it and just expect you to deal with it..she will never deal with it and this will haunt her forever. Terrible.
