  • Be honest, have a game plan, and an idea about how you want to handle the situation. Don't expect handouts, do it on your own, and STAY IN SCHOOL.
    Good luck.

  • just sit her down and tell her there is something important that you need to talk to her about. be honest with her about your emotions so she will be more apt to have a soft heart for you. i bet it's really stressful, but the sooner the better. you need to go to the doctor VERY soon to make sure you and the baby are okay, so don't put it off. Good luck with it... this baby will change your life, but soon you will say you wouldn't have it any other way. > :))

  • be sure to take responsibility. make it clear that any help she gives you, you will appreciate loads and loads. if she thinks you are going to take her help for granted, she might not offer any. GL!

  • yeah, this was the second hardest thing to tell my mom... and I'm 15. just tell her, don't hide it. you just need to tell her that you will take responsibility, lay out what your plans are for the baby, and yourself. and just tell her that no matter what; you appreciate her, and everything she does and has done for you.....

  • Be honest and mature about it. Let her know that you plan on taking full responsibility for the baby, your not looking for hand outs, and any advice she could give would be helpful. Don't expect a positive reaction at first. I'm sure there will be tears, and maybe even some yelling. But in the end, if she truly loves you, she will come around. Good Luck!

  • I agree with most others.. definatly be honest and mature, and tell her sooner then later... because if she finds out from someone else, or suspects it and you don't tell her, chances are she will be a little more mad about it.

    I understand being scared, I didn't get pregnant till I was 24 and I was still afraid to call and tell my mom! But now, she couldn't be happier.

    Congrats on your baby!
