I am scared i might be pregnant. I mean all iv ever wanted is a baby but the only reason im scared is cuz of my parents. I love them so much and i hope they will still love me if i do get pregnant. We are christians so they arent gonna like it one bit!!!!!

Firstly i don't know ur parents to say for sure how they will react, but as the mother of a 16 year old girl i can advise u how i would react,
i would love and support her and help her to the best of my abilities but i would be disappointed as at 16 you are still a child yourself and having a child planned or not requires a lot of commitment and sacrifices its is a 24/7/365 no timeout all in commitment and not a decision to be taken lightly, if u r pregnant then what's done is done and you need to talk to your parents, u r their child they love you, you love them , it might be difficult for them to come to terms with at first but if they love you they will eventually accept it.
if you are not pregnant then really think about waiting till you are older and have a more stable and secure future so you can offer your child everything life as to offer because in todays economy not being financially secure is all too common and people living below the poverty line is happening more and more, just be a 16 year old go college find a job you love then think about finding someone you want to spend the rest of your life with who loves you as much as you love them then think about having a baby, but first go out and enjoy life for a while there is plenty of time for children in your life.
