I turn 17 in January and I just found out I'm almost 6 weeks pregnant and I am keeping the baby, me and my partner are both nervous to tell our parents, I just live with my dad and don't talk to either of them much so I think its going to be extremely awkward? My boyfriend turns 17 in November and we have been today for 1 and a half years.

Thanks for the response girl! I told my mom 2 days ago and she cried and gave me a hug and told me that her and I will tell my dad together and she will help me, I had my ultrasound the day I told her and I found out I am 8 weeks and 2 days, now 8 weeks 4 days. My mom was very supportive though and wants to be apart of my pregnancy and childs life. Hopefully my dad will be the same.

Look, I don't want to crush your dreams and sound cliche', but a baby changes everything. I'm 25 and 22 weeks pregnant & my child's father thinks playing Flappy Bird during my ultrasounds is "support". A good parent, like yours hopefully--will worry about you guys, so don't be surprised if the reaction to this news isn't a parade.

I have a 17 year old sister & honestly, I would flip if she told me she was pregnant, not out of anger--but because now she's a mom. Thats a whole lotta responsibility for anyone!

I wish you luck and happiness. It takes courage to do what you're doing!
