  • Hey, don't let these people bring you down. I was 18 when I got pregnant my fiance was 21. I am 19 and about to give birth to twin boys. My parents did not like my fiance either but he has time to pick it up and show that he can take care of you and a baby. Thats all your parents want to see is that their little girl is getting taken care of. Good luck with everything!

  • First I think that 17 is a little young to be planning a pregnancy. Second honey if your parents don't approve of him they aren't going to approve of this pregnancy. I would sit down with them and tell them how you feel and hopefully they will be happy for you. I wish you all the luck with this. I know that it will be hard, it is hard at any age.

  • I agree that you are too young to be planning things like that. Your life is gonna change forever. You need to sit them down without the hated boyfriend and tell them and hopefully they will help you when that baby is born. Maybe you should question his love for you if he is willing to help you throw away your life by planning a pregnancy so young.
    I am not saying a baby ends your life but it changes everything!

  • WOW.

    Stay in school, graduate, go to college. That's your goal - now on top of that, you will be a mother.

    I can see where your parents are feeling like they failed you. At 17 you can barely drive, let along "plan" a pregnancy.

    I would write out a plan - here's how I'm going to finish school, here's his income, here's how we are going to support the baby and here's how I'm getting into college. You need to get your own place and pay your own bills. Also, directly address WHY they don't this guy (other than the fact that he has no problem knocking you up).

    Lord, buy them a drink first too.

    And buy them some hair color because they may go grey overnight.

  • I was 18 when i got pregnant, 19 when i had her. My fiancee was 20 and 21 when we had her. She's 7 months old now, and we have another on the way.
    My dad loved the idea. My mother went bezerk. My mother lived in Ohio, 4hrs away my father, my brother and me. My fiancee came to visit from Las Vegas, Nevada twice then stayed with us for 3 months and me, him, my dad and brother moved to Vegas. 4 months later we got pregnant. So it was kindof expected. I was going to a study where they give me medicine and take my blood, after two weeks i'd get $800. I found out i was pregnant, fiancee picked me up and took the rest of the day off work. When dad got home we told him why i couldnt participate in the study and he was insane with laughter.

    When we told my fiancess parents.. the mother freaked out and actually cried. "HOW COULD SHE DO THIS TO MY SON?!" The father was happy, the 7 other brothers and sisters were happy. Good luck! :)

  • my family isn't crazy about my DH and when i told my mom i was pregnant (i couldn't even say the words, i told her she was going to be a grandma) she flipped a little but now since he's here and 8 months old she has decided to move back to the east coast to be closer to us, it will all turn out ok in the end.
