I'm 18 and was pregnant at 17. I'm not going to lie to you. It is scary to tell your parents and think of your future as bein g a young mother. Funny part is my mom knew before I did. Mothers instinct I guess but no matter what remember your parents are your parents are will always love you and their first grandchild. It might take a while like my parents but it will happen trust me. The more you worry the more you stress yourself which isn't good. Be confident in your choice and your new family and all else will fall into place.

Hey :) i'm 18 & 5 & a half months pregnant. I think tbh your boyfriend should be there to support you when you tell them. I think that you being honest & open with them will really help, thats what worked with my mum. Yeahh, they'll be disappointed & upset but now-a-days young mums have so much choice! Plenty of colleges & such offer a childcare service so theres nothing stopping you going back & getting an education., Thats what im going to do :)

& now, my mum is so happy & excited & can't wait! Lol. So don't worry hun! After the shock they'll be fine, especially as you seem to have a lovely boyfriend who's gonna support you :) x

You need to just come out and tell them
When I found out I was Pregnant I didn't tell my mom for Over a month
then we were watching and every Commercial was a Baby one!!
i started crying and my mother Guessed!!
She told my DAD he was Not Happy and did not Speak to me for 2 weeks. So be Prepared for that But tell them
I hope you have Finished High school??

Good Luck

(I am 36 now )

Well i was 15 when i had my first child.. and my mom was with me when i found out.. she was fine with it.. but she was in schock that her 15 year old was pregnant.. and her 2 older kids dnt have any kids yet. but everyone was like it was a mistake all you can do now is take care of the baby.. and then just not to long ago i found out i was preg. again.. n i told my mom over the phone. and i think i made a mistake by doing that.. you should sit your parents down with the childs father. and tell them. there reaction wont be that bad.. ;)

i actually tried doing the same thing, i was 17 soon to be 18 and wanted to wait and tell them.........but then i passed out in the bathroom one day and they started asking me questions. it was rough at first but once she got here everything is perfect! just tell your parents. dont try top hide it too long bc it is important that you go see a doctor and make sure everything is ok. good luck hun :)

you may be surpised by their reactions! my dad was just instantly excited about being a 'poppy', instead of angry or even disappointed as i had expected. my mum was really upset but supportive, which i expected exactly. So, my advice... get it over with!! My mum always says about teen pregnancies "people are shocked at first, then the go out and buy lots of baby presents!"

good luck hun xx

PS I was 16 when pregnant, 17 when i had my baby girl and am 19 now with a 19-mth old :) xx

hey i was pregnant when i was 16 to my boyfriend/bestfriend

i only have a mum but even still i was very scared to tell her
the way i told her was
i made her a cup of tea sat her down and said mum i have something to tell you i don't think your going to like this but i am pregnant.

my boyfriend wasnt there because i had asked him not to be as i thought it would be best and it was :)

at first my mum didnt like the fact that her 16yr old was going to be a mum but then she got really excited:) and is now very colse with Holly (my daughter) and Josh (my boyfriend)

i got pregnant when i was 17. Weird story actually! i was on birth control but i had knee surgery so the pain meds that they had me on was making my birth control not work. Well i didnt have a period like 3 months before anyways..just my periods were never normal. well my sons dad was like i think your pregnant cuz i was putting on some weight &ND eating a lot more. &ND before i hardly at all. Well i went to get my birth control re filled &ND they said since you didnt have a period for so long we need you to take a pregnancy test to make sure your nor pregnant. it was standard procedures for a pap-smear so took it they came was like your 13weeks pregnant. Well my mom was calling my phone blowing it up &ND i was balling i was like im pregnant she was actually really calm see it was her 7th grand child she said we will take care of it. well my dadd on the other hand was bitching on &ND on how i ruined my life well that only lasted half &ND hour. i think he was mad cuz he found out from my moms boyfriend &ND not me. but i think you should just come out be truthful &ND tell them your plans on keeping the baby,moving in with your boyfriend,etc.
Hoped i helped!

I was 18 when I got pregnant. But was still scaredd to death to tell my parents. They hadn't even met the boy yet, and were still mad that I moved out right when I turned 18 to live with him. I wasn't able to tell my mom actually. I have a twin sister who told her before I got to. && now she is about to have a baby too and it was cake telling them cuz I was the first one to have a baby. But I would say just sit them down and talk to them. Them getting mad about it is nothing you can control, but you being pregnant is nothing they can control. It's nothing to be mad about at all. I hate when people's parents get mad at them for it! Good luckk with everything!

i found out i was pregnant at 17 to and i turned 18 before my baby was born. it was really hard for me to tell my parents, my dad took it the hardest but my mother was there for me and she was disappointed in me and angry at first and then things got better. i could of not told them but it would of been worse if i kept it from them. thats the worse thing you can do is not tell them your pregnant, its better for you and your baby to cause you won't have the stress on you and the baby for lying or hiding a secret. things will be better for you if you tell them so they can help you with this and hopefully be there for you or help you through it. being pregnant at 17 is not that exciting because i lost all my teenage years and fun once i became a pregnant teen. make sure this is what you want i had to think about it for almost 3 months and then i felt the baby inside of me and i knew that i wanted to be hes mother. its a lot of hard work and that baby needs your attention and love and care every hour of the day. becoming a teen mother is going to be a lifetime change. it was really hard for me to be a mother at 18 and i never graduated school either. you need all the support you can get don't keep this from anyone cause it will bite you in the ass later on.

well, coming from the same situation (only mine was completely unplanned and i was confused about everything, lucky for you, you were excited) i was 17 and had about 7 months to go til i was 18..i told my mom in a text because i was so scared, i know if i told her face to face i would have been yelled at and everything because she wasnt happy...it was awkward between for a little bit but things changed when i decided to keep the baby and now everything is amazing and i wouldnt change it for the world, goodluck!!

i suggest that you tell them after your first tri-mester bc of the chances of miscarrage. I didnt tell anybody untill after my first trimester but thats my opinion, my mom flipped but not my dad which i thought my dad would shoot me and the dad lol...and even tho my mom hated the fact she sucked it up and was completely involved, I got prego 3 months after i turned 18 so i kinda kno the feeling but my mom kicked me out of her house at freshly 17 but yeah anyways congrats and i hope for a healthy happy baby for you!!!

well i had to tell both my parents over the phone because i was away at school, and i told them that yes i was careless, and even a little disappointed in myself but i will be returning to school and graduating and reminded them that this baby was their first grandchild! so no matter how harsh the first reactions may seem after they see the first sonogram and understand how serious yall are they will be right there with yall buying clothes and toys and some new clothes for you lol, that was my fav part!! good luck to yall!

Hey, I don't know if this will help you, but I will try. I got pregnant when I was sixteen but had my baby at 17. I was raised by my grandmother and couldn't figure out how to tell her. I didn't know what to do. Finally when I was 5 months along, she guessed herself. I wasn't showing yet, either. (It takes a while to show with your first pregnancy so it should be a while till you actually have to tell them. I have heard of people wrapping up something that says your going to be grandparents and giving it them as a present. You could try doing that on mothers day? I do advise that you have an easy out in case she does go crazy....

Hi, I was 16 when i got pregnant. I didnt want to tell them but my boyfriend had enough balls just to tell them straight out. I remember my mom said i was getting fat and asked if i had something to tell em, i was like no. And he said yes, she's pregnant! Good luck!

Well, heres the good news:
Despite what your parents have led you to believe up to this point; being pregnant is not the worst thing in the world that can happen to you. Ok, so what.. your young - of course your parents are going to make their little threats about pregnancy ( IT'S ONLY TO PREVENT YOU FROM EVEN THINKING ABOUT IT LOL) In the end, when you end up pregnant anyway - they'll be upset, but they certainly won't tear you apart limb by limb lol. They'll have their time period, give their lectures, and cry their tears.. but once it sinks in, their going to be over-joyed.. maybe even more so than you. ;)
& If they don't come around & accept this change into their lives - thats okay too. As long as your confidant and happy with whats going on with YOUR body - thats all that matters.
The bad news is:
theres really no way to 'sugar coat' telling your parents that your prego. You just gotta spill the beans & let it all play out. If their good parents, they'll do just what I predicted.. Have their grieving period & than accept the change with open arms.

Speaking from experience :)
Goodluck
xx

well im 17, and found out when i was 8 weeks that i was pregnant..
the father told his parents after about a week, and then we all sat down together and talked about it.
i called my dad and told him, and saw my mom in person and told her.
my dad laughed, and said theres worse things that could happen..
like aids, stds, something that could actually kill you.
and my mom started crying, believe it or not, shes so excited to be a grandmother.
and shes only 38.

dont be scared, do it calmly.. and dont yell.
also tell them ahead of time, like before you head out.
" oh hey, can we talk about something later" so they arent caught off guard with.. " hey mom, dad im pregnant"

hope this helps ?

ok sorry im late to reply to this, hopefully they took it well. the main thing i want to tell you is please dont get married just because of the baby, and dont get married right away!! my brotehr got his girlfriend pregnant when she was 17 and they got married before she had the baby. they only lasted a year. they are still friends today but will not get back together. I got pregnant with my son when i was 19 and i waited to get married. i didnt even think of marriage at first till my boyfriend proposed. we were engaged for a year and a half. my son is now 2 almost 3 and we just had our first wedding aniversary this past february. we are doing great. i think if we had gotten married right away i would always feel like he married me just because of the baby.

Hi. I was 19 when I got pregnant...and it will never be easy to tell your parents it wasent easy for me at all..my mom found out first and not in the best way it wasent from me myself and that hurt...and I told my Dad closer to the end and I wish i would have just told everyone when I firt found out i would have enjoyed my pregnacy much more so my advice would be to tell them as soon as you can to get there support and help through the process! Goodluck!

not sure what way your going to break the news, but congrat's and goodluck with telling them! I was 16 when i told my mom, she cried, but she took very well. And my father was the one i thought would kill me, or my boyfriend, and big shock, he didn't freak out! He just told me to keep my life on track, and don't let anything bring me down! Because being prego can bring on some stress, but just think, soon enough you'll have a beautiful baby to look out for, and it's truely the best gift ever.....ENJOY EVERY SECONDE, mine's now one month one week and 2 days, and not a seconde goes by that i don't think of him! I miss him even when he sleeps :) And i'm sure you'll make a good mother, no matter if your 17,18 or 30! Age is only a number!

goodluck, and take care xo :)

Well, I know how you feel.. I found out I was pregnant 2 weeks before I grew a big enough pair to tell my boyfriend.. & that was just telling the dad.. lol, butttt then, I was the same way, mortified to tell my rents.. but like the others have saydz above, there's no real easy way to tell 'em.. I lucked out by being close to both parents.. But, in the end, there's most often, being such a young age, gonna be some negative reaction, AT FIRST. But, don't worry about it, it's better to have the Dad there, it shows your parents that he's willing to grow a pair vs. not take responsibility.. this'll make them respect him.. Even if you don't stay together (that horrible idea..) LOL, life isn't over.. & as long as he upholds his part as the father, your parents won't kill him. When I first told my Dad, I chose a horrible way to do it; take him with me to look at which college's I'd rather go to, then when we got into an argument of why I wanted to go to one college vs. another one, he asked why & i screamed, "Cause I'm freaking pregnant! I don't have the time to deal with that.." LOL, ohhhh buddy was he pissed.. LOL, but it's okay, he's more in love w/him than I think he's ever been with me.. My little one's father's, father, wouldn't speak to me for my whole pregnancy.. He wasn't very happy.. He didn't believe we could take care of what we needed to so he thought it was a disaster waiting to happen, yet again, we proved him wrong & he's crazy in love with my son too.. Has been since the first time he laid eyes on him. :-) Now we all know, once you become a Mom, it's a little harder to not fall in love with a baby.. LOL, especially when it's gonna be your wonderful little grandbaby that they can give back to you whenever they don't wanna play g-rents anymore.. LOL, my mom's only negative portion to it, was that I told her I was pregnant about 2 months before she was getting deployed for a year.. Yeahhhh, nottttt fun for her.. She was really upset 'cause she wouldn't be here & I'm my mother's true baby.. I'm her youngest.. So me being pregnant meant her not seeing him for the first 6 months of his life. Depressing for a Grandma.. & the other Grandma, his dad's mother, was estatic too, been waiting since the day we told her for his little butt to be born.. :-) Don't always worry when it comes to informing your parents about important things.. To be honest, most of the time, they wish you'd fill them in on more.. Be honest with them, let them know if there's things you're gonna need help figuring out.. Make them know that you're willing to do what it takes & show them that too.. Believe me, even if it starts with a negative reaction, living up to what you say you'll do, will make them very supportive. :-)

i found out i was pregnant when i was 17. actually i turned 18 two weeks before i gave birth. im not sure about a dads reaction, mine passed away... but your mom, though she'll be upset, will be fully supportive of you after the initial shock. the best advice i can give is NOT to get defensive when everyone starts in all at once. explain that you realize its not the best situation at your age, but since its happened, and theres nothing you can do, you'd really appreciate their support through this. also, if your parents are the type to initially freak out (yelling and stuff) a note, or a text message could be your best bet. i text my mom as i was leaving the doctors office, and when i got home an hour later, she had had enough time to chill on it, and was ready to sit and discuss the issue calmly.

hi hunni, i was a very younge mum.....it wont b as hard as u think, take her ot for a coffee in town or somewhere like that, and frame urself for the "shocked/devistated" look, cause like every mother she will probably have wanted u to wait a while, but once she gets used to the idea of being a nanny she will love it, (my mum cried for weeks lol but then i was 14,),but on the up side if u have had a "on/off" relationship with ur mum then this will for sure bring u closer together, cause its a case of her baby having a baby, no matter how old u r u r still her baby.....thats where the shock look will come from, good luck hun not that u will need it x

well, it doesnt matter if you tell them after your 18th birthday cuz theyll soon realize that you got pregnant before then and start to think "why didnt you tell me sooner?" They're your parents and will love you and stand by you no matter what. I thought my parents were gonna be like that with me (i got pregnant at 18, lil baby boy at 19 on8th feb 2010) but they werent. If youve decided to keep it, theres not alot they can do about it. Im sure theyve talked to you about contriception and sex and waiting till youre ready and thats all they can really do. they have to trust you. Now that your pregnant, all they can do is help you through out and just be with you all the way. after all, its their grandchild and they would want to see it. my friends parents are VERY religous and her father was a vicor! but she got pregnant very young and they hated it, they never left her side though, they helped her though it but made it clear how unimpressed they were...but once her little boy was born, they forgot everything. they didnt care that she was so young cuz they have a little grandchild.
thats how your parents will feel.
just sit them down with your fella and tell them straight. if you didnt use protection, dont say you did but it broke. they wont believe you, hardly anyone will. tell them the truth and they will be glad you were honest and told them before you came back one day holding a new baby and saying 'oh, by the way i was pregnant, now im a mum, heres your grandchild!' :)

hI, my daughter was 16 when she found out she was pregnant. We always told her not to come running home if she got pregnant. Sometimes parents say things to get their kids to try and do the right thing.She rang and told me, I was shocked but looking back it was the best thing that could have happened to her. She has since moved back home and given birth to a beautiful baby girl (5 mths today). She has grown up so much. Hopefully you will be lucky and your family may not be as upset as you think. Things always seem worse than they really are. If not, there are lots of places you can go for support and you are lucky to have your boyfriend stand by you, that isn't always the case. Good Luck

Just straight out tell them, they might surprise you. I didn't tell my mom till I was 19 weeks pregnant (actually my sister practically did, in the end she just asked me), and she actually wasn't mad at all she just cried.

i found out i was pregnant at 17 and i was living 7 hours from home. my boyfriend at the time wanted me to abort and i refused so i called my mom and told her and she came and got me. she was upset for a couple days but then she was so over the top excited it drove me nuts. my dad on the other hand was mad for over a week but once it sinked in he was trying to buy little kid jeeps and tricyles.. my mom and to control him it was funny. you have to tell them cuz the longer u wait the more upset ur mom will most likley be cuzu hid it from her. id tell her sooner than later. and yes they may be extrememly upset with you but take it. dont fight or argue back just agree cuz in no time they will be on ur side andmore excited than u are... good luck sweet heart and al the best

I did this approximately seven months ago. The best way to tell them (and I told my mother first, naturally) is in the most straightforward way possible. My mom was very upset at first, though not entirely in a bad way, more shock. She told my dad and from there we all dealt with it as a family. When you have a strong home and a supportive family it is much easier. I suggest you have a plan for yourself (as far as schooling and work) before you tell them. For instance, I told my mom I was going to graduate from high school early and continue working. This settled a few of my mom's nerves. I did in fact graduate high school with honors and university lined up in the fall of 2010, I work the same job I've had since I was 16, and I am an 18-year-old mother of a beautiful three-month-old son.



Be strong!



Once your child is born, your parents will never want to go back to the time that they were not grandparents.

I fell pregnant 1month after my 16th birthday but didnt really know until 2months after that. My family is like.. superstious kinda thing like my nan gets sick or has a weird dream which means someone in the family is pregnant. So once my nan got sick the family was alert. So when I told my mum she kind of already had a feeling. But in the case of telling my dad.. WELL Ididnt quite get to tell him because I told my step-mum first to see how she could help me trying to tell my dad. In the end I waited too long soo she told. He was angry as hell just at the fact that I didnt tell him myself. But once he got over his lil fit he was also happy and supportive. I do wish I did it differently tho . But in the end its different for everyone because we dont all have the same kind or rents.. (if you know what i mean) I agree with everyone when they say that your boyfriend should be with you at the time you tell them. Cause in a way its like showing them that you are both sure on the decision. Lek makes you both look good because your boyfiend will be there to support you kind of thing. I wish you all the best for telling your rents. Good luck .

Hi Alison, I was also 17 when I found out I was pregnant! I was so scared to tell both my parents but one day I just was alone with my mum and said mum I need to tell you something, your not going to like it but I need you, just please don't yell at me, I'm scared and I didn't expect this she practically straight away said "your pregnant" and I started crying - etcc she was shocked, a bit dissappointed but she didn't yell, gave me a hug and told me she's always here for me. It was the hardest thing but she's my mum, always supports me no matter what. My boyfriends fam, on the other hand took it pretty bad, he ended up moving in with me and they don't see their granddaughter, it hurts him but it was their choice not to accept her. Just remember anyone who doesn't accept it, is not worth it. Surroud yourself by people that love you and support you no matter what, having a child is the best feeling in the world, as is pregnancy :) goodluck, I hope everything goes well for you :)
Let us know how it goes!!

I am not going to lie. I was so scared even though my mom has always told me that we would deal with it and it would be ok. I took the test and asked my best friend to come home to tell my mom. Well she totally bailed on me so I was on my own. I went home and debated on ways to tell her. I just decided to text her. "mom I think I need to go to the doctor. I think im pregnant." Probably not the best way but it worked. Everyday that you know and don't get to the doctor its taking away from your baby. I just bit the bullet. Yeah she was disappointed but happy that I did tell her. I just turned 18 in March and found out i was pregnant while i was 17. I am due to be induced on April 29th. Good Luck and they will still love you.

I'm 19 and expecting my first in August. When I told my parents my dad didn't talk to me for days. Neither of my parents were happy at first but they have since gotten used to the idea and are now very excited

it is never easy to tell your parents that your pregnant. i am pregnant with my second child and i am married and i am still afraid to tell my parents. i had my sister say something this time but with my last son i was 18 in school stil and i told my dad over the phone so that way when i did see him he wouldnt kill me. but the thing is my dad is the type that will be mad until the day you have the baby then he will spoil the baby. your parents might be mad t first but they will get over it in time. good luck and i hope everything goes well.

I didnt tell my mom until i was 7 months ( i lived with her too) she had no clue, and it hurt her that i didnt tell her. but i decided to make sure i had everything in order as to not worry her and have her thinking that i was going into a new era thinking it;s a game you know?
