Hey, I know it’s hard to tell them and may even seem a little scary but it’s something that has to be done. There is no perfect time to tell them this either, so the sooner the better. I’m 16 and pregnant (10 days overdue!!!!! :angry: ), and believe me I was scared to death of telling my parents. I was in for such a surprise though. When I finally told my mum I was so relieved that I had it off my cheast. I was about 8 weeks when I told her. As she had me at 16 her heart was set on me having an abortion. So when I didn’t get one she was really mad at me and she honestly didn’t talk to me for 2 months. But I knew she would come around as she knows what I’m going through. Now, she is over the moon that I’m having a baby. She’s here staying with me and my boyfriend for the birth. And I can’t believe it. You have to tell your parents. Theres gonna be no other way around it. As for the dad, these things happen all the time. And just because you don’t love him and he doesn’t love you doesn’t mean you will not love the baby. The baby will be just as special as it would be if you were 31, deeply in love and happily married. You have to do what feels right for you and it’ll all start to fall in place after your parents are awear of what’s going on.

Best if you tell your oarents now thean later cause they’ll be mad at you foreal if you don’t tell and they found out otherwiseMarch 25, 2006 at 5:33 am #10704
hi i know how your feeling im 17 soon to be 18 and im pregnant with my 2nd baby. its tough. but trust me once your parents know you will feel alot better. the longer you hide it the harder it is. your parents will only be upset for a few days then they’ll be there. i have friends that have gone through the same thing and they would agree. we know how you feel. but jsut let it out and then you’ll feel alot better plus not telling them will put stress on you, and you dont want that. and about the guy im still with my kids dad and there has been alot of times when i still feel alone but my son is now 11 mos and ive practically raised him myself without the help of his dad and now my son is a mommies boy and gets excited when i walk into the room and his dad doesnt have that relationship with our son and now we are having a lil girl in August and he now realizes that he needs to grow up. trust me you’ll be fine if he doesnt come around you’ll be the center of your child world and thats the best feeling you’ll ever have.
goodluck… my heart goes out to you!! keep in touch!!!March 26, 2006 at 3:18 am #10711

First of all, I myself believe your baby is a gift from god so all you have to do when you’re getting ready to break the news to your parents is first get in the right frame of mind by letting yourself know that this baby is yours not your parents so either way it go they have to except that, what’s done is done. You guys just need to find the best way to handle the situation. But the most important thing you’ll want to remember is you dont want to get upset just listen to what they have to say first without interrupting and when they are done then the floor is yours. And as for your boyfriend I suggest that you tell him the truth, even if you feel it would ruin you guys relationship you have to tell him because if you dont and he finds out later on after you’ve had the baby he could already be involved in the baby’s life and when he learns it’s not his he’s going to be hurt but not only him but the baby as well.
Those are just suggestions, you know in your heart what’s right, so do the right thing.March 26, 2006 at 8:45 am #10715
I know that it is hard to tell your parents. I was sixteen when I got pregnant for the first time and I thought that my mom would be furious, but she just hugged me and cried and asked why I didn’t tell her. I felt like a huge weight had been lifted off of my chest, trust me, it feels better to tell, even if they get mad. My boyfriends mom freaked out, but it still felt better to get it out. We are all now a happy family, we have two kids together, were getting married in July, and me and his mom hang out almost everyday, it may be hard at first, but it gets better, I promise, so stick it out, and GOOD LUCK!!!!!

Hey… I can relate to how you are feeling right now, and I just want you to know that if you would like to talk sometime, feel free to email me or something
I’m 17 and I’m nearly 12 weeks pregnant… To my rapist… So I’ll be a single mum…
It was really hard telling my mum, and she was really angry and disappointed at first, but she’s come around now… She doesn’t know the circumstances though… She asumes that it’s my ex-boyfriend’s…
You will feel a lot better and will be able to enjoy your pregnancy if you tell your parents…
So um yeh… Just keep your head up and things will work out somehow…
