Tomorrow I'm going to take a pregnancy test but my period has been late and I had unprotected sex a while ago so I am really sure that I am pregnant. I am unsure of how to tell my mom. I know my mom will be disappointed with me however I do go to college and get good grades. I haven't been the best daughter I use to dabble with drugs a few years ago and she found out and was disappointed with me. I also use to cut myself which was disappointing also. My mother is a good mom and I am scared my pregnancy (if I am pregnant) will disappoint her also. How do I tell her. My family is religious also. I am unmarried and still live with my mom twin sister, older sister, and younger brother. My grandmother also lives with us to help my mom out finacially. I am scared to death :( How should I tell her if I am pregnant? My boyfriend is very supportive and wants a baby, so do I, but now I am really scared and I have no money although my boyfriend does work part-time. Please help me? What should I say?

Just say the truth (after the test confirms it). Stating the obvious - parents can love you and be disappointed with your choices at the same time. I think the disappointment is as much because her dreams for you are not what's happening. Ideally, this probably isn't the best time in your life for you to be pregnant. Without a job or a husband, this will be tough. Nothing is ideal though. I'm sure there are some things in your mom's life that haven't gone as planned too. It sounds like you have a fantastic family that cares about each other and a supportive and loving boyfriend. That's more than a lot of people have.
