I am 17 and a senior in high school. I just found out i'm pregnant and I have no clue how to tell her. My older brother had a child at 16 with his girlfriend at the time and i just don't want her to be disapointed in me or be angry...

......unfortunately that might be a possibility. because she is scared that this will happen again. Or she would encourage him to be in the picture. It can go either way, however you will not know anything until you let her know. Once you spill the beans and tell her how you feel about the entire situation you can only know what will happen from there on. Its time to overcome your fears!!!

There is no easy way of telling her. Yes she will be disappointed and angry but she is your mother she will always love you and be by your side through it all. Good and Bad. I was 18 when I had my first kid. I was scared to death to tell my mom. Yes she yelled. Yes she screamed, cried, was highly disappointed and made sure she let me know for the first week of me telling her. And yes she always made a comment or joke about it during and after. But I'm glad I told her in the beginning once I knew because she helped me so much and taught me everything I needed to know. So just sit down with your mom privately take a deep breath and tell her.

I hope this helps a bit.

Just tell her when you are alone with her. There is going to be so much to do and talk about after she knows so just get it out of the way.

She is going to be disapointed but you and her will have to work past that later...

She loves you and you need her now more than ever..

God Bless.
