You are 16, you can't possibly know how your mother will respond. Yes, of course she will be disappointed, any parent would. We want better for our children than a teen pregnancy. But she won't hate you or refuse to talk to you. She may be upset while she gets used to it, but you need to reach out to her for support. You are going to need it. This is going to be a difficult time for you - having a baby is a very real life challenge and it is hard work. Not to mention, you will need support to get you through finishing high school.

If you are worried about your mother's reaction, maybe you could take her out for a coffee somewhere and tell her. Choose somewhere that still has a little privacy (like privacy booths), but because it is in public, she will curb her reaction a little, and it will give her time to calm down before she says anything.

But I promise you, she won't hate you. Angry and disappointed initially, yes, but hate? No.

She is not going to hate you. Angry, disappointed but she's your mom, she isn't going to hate you. Better to come clean sooner rather than wait. Your parents and the father's parents will need to talk about what the plan will be for the baby.
