Skip to comments.'If I throw up I can say it's the baby': Pregnant teen who goes out drinking five nights a week.....

A pregnant 19-year-old who goes out drinking five nights a week says she pretends she has morning sickness when she is so hungover she is sick.
Holly Piggott, who drinks up to 32 units every week - the recommended number of units for women who aren't pregnant is 14 - says she is worried her friends will think she's 'boring' if she stops going out.
She still goes clubbing every Saturday and Sunday, and goes to the pub three times a week, but says she will start drinking at home instead when she starts having to wear maternity clothes. The five-month-pregnant mum-to-be told Closer: 'I'm not an idiot, I know I might be doing my baby harm.'
But to defend herself, the Waltham Abbey, Essex, resident says: 'I'm young and I don't feel ready to stop my life.
'I'm trying to get the most out of it while I can. When I don't fit into my size 12 dresses, I'll stop.'

For a moment, I thought this story was about my idiot stepdaughter
Words fail me...
This child in adult body has not yet become familure with the word “consequences” and it’s meaning. To quote my father ... stupidity is often it’s own reward.
Really frightening how many American youth are the same way.
My sister already raised her own 5 kids and now seems to raising her grandkids because my niece is a moron who wanted to play mommy and got tired of it.
I pray to God she sees her ways, stops, and the baby is fine. I pray to God for justice if that is not the case. She knows she is endangering her child. I also pray for justice on the baby daddy if he is did not try to do what was right.
Yeah. I’m fairly sure my wife and I are going to be raising this kid. Probability approaches 90%
She should be arrested for felony child endangerment! (It is a child, not a choice)
What the hell is a unit of alcohol?
It’s 3/5th of a gill I believe.
Looks like Lindsey Lohan before 37 DUIs.
She says she likes to go clubbing? That’s what she needs is a good “clubbing.My god this world is full of self centered idiots.Isn’t this child abuse?
Oh my. Lord, have mercy on the baby. I pray she gives this child up for adoption. If she’s this selfish now, what will she do when the little bugger won’t sleep through the night? These are the type of women who shake their infants to death. Yikes.
But where/how does she get all that money to pay for all that booz?
It sure is different nowadays than when I was growing up at age 14.
According to Wiki, a 16 ounce beer at 5% ABV is 2.5 units.
I think its fairly obvious how she gets all the money.
You’re right - very close resemblance!
My sister says it beats finding the child in the trunk of the car because mommy wanted to party.
It seems to be a growing trend in America. Teenagers get pregnant and dump the child on the grandparents. My sister did pretty good with her 5 kids, only one turned out to be a complete moron. She’s got 1 in college, one that doesn’t like being broke so he works and the two youngest are still at home.
Wow, thanks for clearing that up. I was at sea there for a moment but now I understand.
After wading through all the definitions of gill pertaining to fish I came across this little jewel. I don't think a Unit would be 3/5 of 4 oz. Depending of course on if the gill was measuring hard booze or beer.
Gill: A unit of liquid measure, equal to pint or 4 fluid ounces (0.11829375 liquid liter or 118.29375 milliliters): the British and Canadian imperial gill equals 0.1421 liquid liter
You are aware of course that most people have no idea what a fickin' gill is? Thanks for the help:)
Fetal Alcohol Syndrome is hell.
“You are aware of course that most people have no idea what a fickin’ gill is? Thanks for the help:) “
But look how much fun you had looking it up.
Now you know why there is no more british empire. 8-)
She should be charge with child endangerment. What a selfish idiot.
“Holly’s mother and boyfriend ...”
Holly will dump the baby with Mom and her mother will get to screw up another generation.
For extra credit: How many drams make a gill?
A dram is just about 1/16th of an oz. Since there are 4 oz in a gill there would be 64 drams in a gill.
Keep drinking like that every day, honey, and you'll get fat and look like a worn out old hag by the age of 23.
No doubt this loser POC will be on the dole for the rest of her sorry life.
“One unit of alcohol is defined as 10 millilitres in the United Kingdom”
Amazing what you can find on Google. :)
This selfish bitch has just condemned the child developing in her to a life time as a ‘’fetal alcohol syndrome child/adult’’. Thanks to her, this child will live a life of pain, frustration and a general Hell like nothing on Earth.
