Well if you have not told them yet...I wish you all the best! CONGRATULATIONS MOMMY! YOU are not barren - blessed are you. Just remeber that they might be angry , but they will probably realise that it's all done. Don't let them talk you into an abortion! God bless you for choosing to keep what is rightfully YOURS! This is a very exciting time! Concentrate on the positive! You can do this, and many have even done it on their own! when your baby is here, your parents will dote and all will be forgotten! It might be best to have another adult with you to support you when you tell your parents! To keep the situation under control! What about your boyfriends mom? You are a blessed woman to have a supportive boyfriend!

hey well i think the best thing is to just sit down maybe with just one of your parents if you find one of them particularly easy to talk to and they can help break the news to your other parent. If you're not finding it easy to sit down and just come out with it ( really there is no right time or right way) then maybe put it down in writing and give it to them. That way if you're worried about how they might react you dont even necessarily have to be there while they read so you can always talk to them later when the news has sunk in a bit. hope that helps :) good luck xxx

Hi,
you've made the hardest decision, keeping your baby...Im sure your parents will support your decision.
I come from a very strong catholic family and I didnt tell my mum until after I had the abortion, however she was so supportive & upset that I felt that I couldnt go to her...

Good luck & keep us posted. xx

I think the best way to do it is face to face but thats me. I think you should sit everyone down and have your bf there if you want him there. Truth is there is no easy way to break this news. Your parents are going to be disappointed and a little taken back by this but thats normal. Just know that they will come around. It may not be right away or next month but it will happen. Best of luck to you. luv gabby xo

Hi there, the other girls have given you great advice already and I agree 100% that you should tell them the truth, it'll show you're being responsible and are ready to face up to your actions. Make sure they hear it from you and no one else, that'll just cause unwanted negative vibes. If you need extra support, take along a supportive, trusted family member.
Sometimes adults also need reassurance, so tell them that despite your choices in the past, you are not making a mistake now and that you plan on keeping the baby and raising him/her. You can also ask them for their support, tell them that their input is important to you and that you value their advice in your decision making:)
Tension creates tension, so tell them in a calm environment. Try and eliminate interruptions, there's nothing worse than having to re-start a difficult conversation.

Expect some strong emotions, they just need time to process everything you've told them. Be open to listening to their opinions and feelings, you expect them to do the same for you, right? But at the same time, don't let them change your mind about keeping the baby.
I really hope this helps in some way, let us know how it goes.
Hugs, Evangeline.
