My parents do not know I am sexually active, and would be totally disappointed if they found out, but recently, me and my boyfriend had unprotected sex, being stupid 17 years old, and now I think I am pregnant..How can I tell my parents? I am so scared they will over react, and kick me out, or something on the lines of that, or I lose all their support, and trust...

Brandi--smart girl. But it will be hard to tell your folks about this new life if it is to be. Just go in there knowing what you have to tell them and make sure they know you still love them and all. How have your parents been with you in the past on issues that came to pass? Go on that. If they got upset but still worked with you on getting through those things, then chances are that they will again. I can tell you they won't be happy. I can also tell you that it is a shock not only to you and your BF but to ALL family involved. Its a big step and not an easy road. My daughter got through third year of college and before they were to return to start her senior year, she found out she was expecting. It was a shock. Her father was none too pleased with it. I was shocked and overwhelmed but did not get mad at her because she had. I supported her and inside of a month they got married and are still together 2 years later. THey have a beautiful child. I would not trade that for the world. She intends to return to school soon to finish. All I am saying is this can be done with support and a system in place. Good luck.

Sweetheart I have been in those shoes, my parents were pissed said some things they regret, but at the end of the day they still love you. Do you plan on keeping the baby? Are y'all 2 going to finish HS? How will you support the baby, diapers, clothing, crib, carseat, swing, jump-a-roo formula etc etc etc. First you need to go to the doc find out if you are and how far along. From there if you need someone to talk to my email is grtshell@gmail.com and my name is Michelle

I will definitely keep him/her. If I am. There is not doubt in my mind of getting rid of the baby, unless it is adoption, and I would not want a closed adoption. I would want to know him/her was going into a nice home... But for expenses, I at the moment hold a job, and he is working to get one. My family currently has a lot of growing children, and are all getting rid of cribs, and changing tables, and stuff along that line, and as for diapers, me, and my boyfriend would split the cost, and I have already decided I would want to breastfeed, for three different reasons; healthier, more bonding time, and cheaper. I go to the doctor on Tuesday for an annual check-up, and I am going to speak with my doctor about it, but I do hope that I am not. I mean I wish to be a mother, but me and my boyfriend still have school, and a lot to look forward to. I have already told him that if the tests come out negative, we would not have sex again till marriage, and he was totally fine with that.
