  • About what pregnancy? I told my mom when I asked her to buy my test. I wrote my dad a letter and gave it to him. I did that because I knew if I was having to say it out loud he wouldn't understand me through my tears. I was sitting beside him while he read it.

  • I wasn't a teen, I was 20, but I told my parents through an e-mail while I was away at college. I figured it would be the best way to get everything out that I wanted to say without being interuppted and without all the emotions getting in the way. Its different for everyone though. You should just do whatever you feel your parents will respond best to and tell them in the most productive way you feel possible. Make sure you have a plan about what your going to do, ie. keep the baby, or give it up for adoption, and put yourself in their shoes. Obviously they aren't going to be happy about it but THEY WILL GET OVER IT! That is the most important thing to remember. Telling them is the hardest part of the whole thing...yes even harder than labor. Don't be disrespectful to them and just take their yelling or whatever they say with your head up and mouth closed for the most part. Good luck!

  • I peed on the stick, and once the positive turned up, I went to her room and showed it to her. She asked me how I was feeling, recommended a doctor, helped me get insurance info, and then went to the doc with me. This was just a few months ago, i'm 18. She's been happy, she even has pet names for the baby. "Newbie" "Peanut" so on.

  • I was 14. I didn't tell them. My mom's friend snitched and told my mom that my sis stole a pregnancy test for me. My mom made me take it with her there.

  • i told my mom when i couldnt hide it anymore- belly kinda gives it away. she was mad but i told her she just had to get over it, shes not the kind of mom that really cares alot so i told her its kinda late to start to worry about it now cuz its done.
