I'm 22 years old, still live at home, am working part time and just graduated with my AA but I also found out I'm four months pregnant and the father doesn't want a baby right now so its basically me on my own. I am beyond afraid of how to tell my parents - my hands sweat just writing this and thinking about it BUT I've decided to keep it and cant keep it in since I will start showing pretty soon!
HELP!!!!!

The reality is, you are going to have to tell them.
I'm guessing you have known for a while, so are saving for this child etc, preparing yourself, looking at all your options.

Maybe write them a letter, or just get brave and sit them down and tell them.

Once you have done that, things will be a lot better. You can then move into the next stage knowing where you stand with them. You can deal with any problem, if you know what it is.......so get things out in the open.

OK, given you reported my post, I edited it to take out the term "get the hell over it". Better? The sentiment of the post remains the same.

But just so you know, the word "hell" is actually allowable on this board.

You're 22. They are just going to have to get over it. It's your life and it is time for them to accept that. You don't need their approval.
