I am 17 years old and I might be pregnant. My catholic high-school does not believe in pre marital sex and abortion is not an option for me. I've already told my boyfriend of 2 years, and he says he'll stick with me no matter what. My only concern is telling my mother. She was also a teen mom and had me when she was 16. I know she'll be devastated if I am pregnant. My dad is out of the picture so that's not an issue. My mom barely has enough money to keep me in school and I don't want to put any more burden on her. I'll still be allowed to go to my school because there have been several other girls who this has happened to. I'm scared that I won't be able to go to college and do everything I want to do. I know this is my own fault, my boyfriend and I had unprotected sex, but I was under the impression that I couldn't get pregnant. I'm sorry if this sounds like a sob story but some advice would be really helpful right now. Btw my period is 6 days late.
