I am a little freaked out about telling my parents that I am pregant. Me and my parents are really kinda close and I am worried after the first time I got pregant, they didnt take the news to well.

Make it fun for them . i would go out to dinner or just have them over for dinner , or their house . what ever works best for you . & maybe get them a cute story book and write inside of it "Cant wait for you to read this to me when i get here " something cute and put an ultra sound picture in it . or Put your first child in a shirt that says big bother , big sister . and see their reaction . i hope i can help you in anyway . & i hope they take it well !

I wouldn't worry about it. You're a grown woman and if they actually have something negative to say you need to put them in their place. I'd feel differently if you lived with them and they support you but they don't. I would just tell them, but in an excited way, don't sit them down and say we need to talk as if you were 15 and pregnant.

I'm guessing that you're a teenager. They should love you and support you, just please stop having unprotected sex until you're ready for a baby.

No I live with my partner and son.
They are really good with my son now.
I think because they went mental the first time I am a bit shy

Ummm kinda weird you're worried about it at all. You think they would be happy for you unless there is some reasons they believe you shouldn't have children. It makes more sense that they were upset when you were 21... Do you still live with them?

I am actually quite old I am 25 it seems silly that even at this age I am scared about telling my parents.
I have been with my partner for 7 years and we have a 4 year old together already. They went pretty mental about my last baby and I am worried that this will be a repeat

How old are you? Are you in a serious relationship? Did you keep the last baby?
