  • just flat out tell them. dont' beat around the bush. That's what I did. I was like I have something to tell you.... I'm pregnant. worked pretty well for me.

  • Sit them down maybe at dinner or something and just tell them... I hope you have a supportive boyfriend or something... I was 18 when I told my parents I was pregnant.. my fiance and I had planned it and everyone was thrilled.. eventually...

  • You should tell them sooner rather then later. Waiting will only make it harder, and you will want to be able to talk to someone about it and get that support

  • I was not married when I found out I was pregnant...I showed them the pregnancy test..but my mom knew somehow before I even told her. Good luck :) You just have to get the strength to do it, and just do it :)

  • Tell them with your boyfriend. Let them know what you plan to do (assuming that an unplanned pregnancy is something that you discussed before becoming involved sexually, otherwise you are not mature enough to be having sex)

  • You will be fine most moms and dads are mad at first, then they get over it I waited till after my second child was born and I took a picture of them both and sent it to my mom and said I will be in the country on this and this day if you want to see ur grandkids... lets just say thats not the right way to do it.. I was 20 and married but live in a different country then my mom.. now i wish i would have told her from day one.. it would have been easier and i would have had someone to talk too about things..
