Im 17 and in 2 weeks i check to see if im pregnant. Im pretty sure i am though. Honestly im not worried of whats gonna happen because I have an extremely supportive boyfriend and we have everything planned out, even though sometimes everything doesnt turn out as planned but were hoping everything goes smoothely. Im honestly just scared of how to tell my mom. Its nerve recking. I dont know how shes gonna react. shes given me and my sisters here whole life and i know shes really gonna be upset. Right now , im just a nervous reck and honestly need some advice. thanks. (:

If you just got your period it's not likely that you're pregnant, but take the test anyway. If it's negative get on a reliable birth control ASAP. If you can't remember to take a pill everyday, look into getting an IUD. Good luck.

By the way, you should probably not have unprotected sex until after you take a test, and if the test comes back negative, get on some birth control ASAP.

so pleased ,i know that might sound odd and its not meant nasty. You can now get bc, finish school etc and the two of you can plan whens the best time to start a family. Id suggest after you gone backpacking around the world etc cos you can't do that with babies. I had my daughter at 19 and i wouldn't be without her but it was really hard seeing my friends go of on holiday etc. Enjoy your yourh. X

Hey okay so I take the test this week but I just got my period. Could I still be pregnant.?

Best thing to do is have the test when you can. Then you know if the results are postive or negative. Let your Mum know, yes she might be angry at you to begin with you and your bf, but if you have a good relationship with her, then she'll come round and support you.

Once you've found out either way, start planning for the future. In the nicest possible way, it's helped you to realise the consequences of having unprotected sex are - preganancy is one of them.

Good luck for the future. If you are expecting, congratualtions. Tell your Mum and start thinking/working towards your future. This can include going back to school and getting qualifications under your belt. If not, make sure that you start using birth control, and again work on building your future.

When you know just sit and talk with her. Yes shes going be upset but she sounds like a great mom and im sure once the shock has worn off, she will be very supportive. Your going to need her so let her be involved. Goodluck.

Wait until the test comes back before doing anything. Then meet with the boyfriend and plan out what you are going to say together. It needs to be both of you. Your mum will be upset but she is going to want to know how you are going to support this child and if you have that sorted then that is one less worry off her mind. I really hope you know what you are letting yourself in for. Babies are a huge strain on any relationship and being so young you are in for a bumpy ride. you need mums support and I am sure she will be there for you. When your a mum yourself you will realise why she is so upset. We always want the best for our kids and them having children when they are a kid themselves was not part of the plan.

Sort out in your heads what you are going to say and show her that you have got plans for the future. I really hope things work out for you and your new little family. xx

If you think telling your mom's gonna be hard just wait until you go into labour! lol Just sit her down, stay calm, and don't beat around the bush. Just short, sweet, and straight to the point. Tell her you've got your boyfriend's support, and tell her about the plans you've made. That might help ease her mind a bit, and it will at least show her that you've put a lot of thought into this.

If your test comes back positive, make sure to tell her about it as soon as you can. She'd probably be pretty upset if you didn't tell her until you were 20 weeks.lol And try not to tell a whole bunch of people before you tell your mom. No one likes to be the last to know, and that increases the chance of someone else telling her before you do. Oh and it'll probably look better if your boyfriend is with you when you tell mom. It shows unity and support.

You've got a long road ahead of you, this will probably turn out to be one of the easiest steps you'll have to take. Good luck.
