teen pregnancy, how do I break it to my parents?

Growing up my mom told me if I were one day pregnant, that would mean I decided to move out and start a family on my own. My parents are pretty strict. They didn't expect me to save myself for marriage but didn't expect me to be pregnant until after marriage. I know them well, my mom might be supportive after a few months but will be disappointed. My dad will kick me out and probably not talk to me for a couple of years. I know they might surprise me somehow but I'm positive that's how it will work out. So how and when do I break it to them?

Im 20 and i just had my little girl, i was 19 when i got pregnant and still a student, i was always told if i was to become pregnant that i had 2 choices abortion or get out of my parents house so telling them was one of the hardest things i had to do. my mom was the first one to be told and she told my dad and to my surprise he asked me and my boyfriend what we were going to do and they supported us 100% and now i have a beautiful 13 week old and i graduated and i have moved out cause i wanted to,, They may say this now but you never know you are giving them the best gift a grand child.

I was pregnant at 17 I told my mom that I was sorry and told her i was pregnant and she wouldn't talk to me for a week but she told my dad who didn't talk to me until the day my daughter was born. But you should start taking prenatal pills the sooner the better and tell them when you feel comfortable doing so. Good luck

I was 18 when I had to break the news. My mom was VERY supportive but my dad was very mad. But when my beautiful Kate was born he became even more supportive then my mom. I just matters if they love babies.

Have you considered adoption? Many adoptive parents offer open adoption so you can stay in contact through email and receive pictures of your baby. My husband and I are trying to adopt a baby. There are alot of good people who could give your baby a good home. Explore your options.
