Hi, My name is Ashley. I am 21, and think I might be pregnant. Im not sure though. I am now 6 days late and I have been having symptoms I guess you could say of an early preganancy. The mind is a powerful thing, so It could all just be in my head. I took a Home preg. test last night, and it was neg. If I still dont get my period by next week, Im going to take another one and go to the doctors.
I am torn here. My and my boyfriend havent been together for very long, but we have a connection unlike any other. We have already planned on getting married, and will be engaged by Feb. Im not sure when he will pop the question, but i know its coming. I told him I am late, and he has been very supportive. His family loves me, my family loves him. The situation is great. HOWEVER…I am affraid to tell our parents. He is reassuring me that they wont be too bad. They will have an initial shock probably, but after a little while, they will accept it. I dont want to disappoint my parents or his. We are young, and not married…but it isnt the end of the world. We are both in a stable relationship, and consider everything given to us so far as a blessing from God, so if I am pregnant, then God wanted it to be now. I just dont know what to tell the parents if I am.November 26, 2005 at 2:18 pm #9900Kit
I know how you feel. When I was in college my then boyfriend (now husband) and I had a pregnancy scare. I know he would have been there for me if I was pregnant then (we’ve been married for 6 years now and he has been great in being there for me now in my pregnancy with our first child). My parents would not have reacted well to us being pregnant before we were married. I was terrified to tell them. Luckily it turned out tht I wasn;t pregnant. Before you panic too much about how to tell your families wait to find out for sure that you are pregnant – perhaps you are not pregnant. If you are pregnant be thankful that you are in a stable relationship and that your boyfriend will support you and the baby. Although your families may not be thrilled at the timing, I would hope and guess that they will come around and be supportive. Best wishes.

You should wait until you know for sure before you tell your parents. Honesty is the best policy. I would just talk straight with them about it. Tell them you know it is not the perfect situation or what they would have preferred, but you are excited about having this child. They may be upset or suprised at first, but they will come around.
We have a daughter that is 27 and is 6 1/2 months pregnant. She will be a single mother. She doesn’t have the perfect situation, but we are making the best of it and are thrilled at the idea of being grandparents. We were very suprised the day we were told, but not upset.
So you might be very suprised at how they will react.
Good luck and let us know if you find out you are going to be a Mom.
