dc.description.abstractUsing a descriptive, phenomenological approach, this study explored: What is the essential structure of the lived experience of a Mexican .American adolescent becoming pregnant? Three pregnant Mexican American adolescents attending a teenage parent program in Arizona voluntarily participated in this study. The audio-taped interviews were transcribed verbatim and analyzed using Colaizzi's eight-step method as adapted by Haase. significant statements were identified, meanings formulated, and themes derived. Five major theme categories emerged: The Inconceivable: I am Pregnant, Searching for Answers, Innocence Lost, The Creation of Life, and The Future: Planning with care, from which the essential structure evolved. Implications for nursing practice and recommendations for future study are presented.en_US
