I am pregnant how do i tell my boyfriend?

i am scared to tell my boyfriend that i am pregnant, we weren't planning on having a baby were young. and have been together 4 1 year. I am close with his mom and i was thinking of telling her first and go from there but i am starting to think that might not be a good idea. any ideas?

  • Sit him down and tell him you have something important to talk about and then just tell him. I wouldn't tell his mom first because he will probably be mad about hearing it from her and not you.

  • I agree with MommyKKay. Just sit him down and tell him, it's better for him to hear it from you. You mentioned that this wasn't planned and you guys are young, how do you feel about it? Now that your are pregnant, will you keep the baby or put it up for adoption? Have you talked to your mother yet?

  • I'd tell him first, but if he reacts in a way that hurts you, I would make sure to tell his mother asap.

  • That's great that you have the support of your mother. How do you think your bf would react? Is this why you are afraid to tell him?

  • There are hotlines that help you to deal with this kind of thing. Check online for teen pregnancy or unplanned pregnancy. Good luck and I hope that it all works out for you. I'm glad that you have the support of your mom.
