* BabiesMakeEverythingBetter: Averted; the girls are often shown getting a crash course for how being pregnant will ruin their lives: chaining them to a {{Jerkass}}, make it extremely difficult to finish school (let alone attend college), and keep you in debt and shatter any dreams you might have for the future.

Added DiffLines:

* MissConception: Needless to say, a few girls had no idea how human reproduction worked, or still believed various rumors about what does or doesn't prevent pregnancy.

* DaddyDNATest: One recent episode features the father's family giving his wife an at-home DNA kit and demanding that she take it to prove that the baby is his. [[spoiler: She refused and stormed out of the house.]]

** Speaking of Farrah, she ended up getting a boob job so she could continue modeling.
*** The boob job doesn't entirely count as this trope. Being able to continue making money as a model isn't the worst thing to do. Of course she almost certainly is not doing it primarily for the baby, but extra spare cash, at least some of which will help that baby, is not the worst thing to "invest" in.

* TooDumbToLive: One girl on the show was talking about how she got pregnant. She didn't know too much about birth control (a quick google search could have cleared that up) and suggested that her boyfriend use condoms. He confessed that the reason why he didn't was because it was too awkward to buy them.
** The original reason he gave for not using them, before confessing to being too embarrassed to buy them, was that condoms didn't feel good for him. Long story short, [[CaptainObvious if you don't know enough about birth control to find an alternative to condoms because your boyfriend has made it clear that he isn't going to use them, then you should not be having sex.]]
** One season 4 girl said she didn't use birth control because she didn't want to get fat. [[http://cdn.iwastesomuchtime.com/11122012125775.jpg Yeah]].
** One girl famously said "You can't really prevent pregnancy." Her friends were quick to set her straight on that, though.

* FromBadToWorse: Farrah. First, the father dies in a car crash. She's forced to live with her family, which is...less than ideal. ''Then'', we learn her mother is physically abusive. If that wasn't enough, the father's family first tries to prove that he isn't the father...and then when the paternity test says he is, immediately sues her for not giving them enough time with the baby. The cherry on top? She wanted an abortion, and it's implied her mother used emotional abuse to make her have the child. How much of this is truth and how much is ManipulativeEditing is up to the viewer.

* NotBloodSiblings: After Catelynn and Tyler started dating, his dad started dating her mom. Becoming stepsiblings didn't stop Catelynn and Tyler from dating and getting engaged for awhile, though.
