  • Ask her and if she denies it, make her take a pregnancy test. My sister denied her pregnancy and didn't tell anyone until she drove herself to the hospital and gave birth. The whole time we all knew she was pregnant, but she kept insisting she wasn't. My mom even told her she was gonna make her take a pregnancy test and my sister said "ok, then do it." But my mom never did and my sister ended up getting no prenatal treatment whatsoever.

  • Can you talk to her? Does she seem withdrawn or emotional lately?

  • I guess your talking about the 16 year old.Ask her if she is pregnant. If she says no,tell her to stop eating so much

  • What do you mean by she's changed? Could she be high? When I was about 17 I had a boyfriend that introduced me to weed, and I was high a lot. It makes you want to eat all the time. I would agree maybe just aske her. You don't have to call her out on it, but maybe just sit her down and tell her the things you've noticed and that you're worried. Ket her know that you're there for her and if anything's going on you will help her. I would think if she's pregnant and hiding it it's because she's either scared of your reaction, or planning an abortion.

  • Why not schedule a doctor appointment? Tell her she needs to have her yearly physical done.

    If you have always had an open relationship, sit down and have a heart to heart talk with her. She may be scared and afraid of your reaction to the news.

    Good luck!

  • just cuz your daughter is 16 doesnt mean anything at that age i myself got pregnant, and had a baby at 17, the best advice to tell you is communicate with your daughter, be up front with her, you need to have a key to communication, she might be too afraid to talk to you, and you want your daughter to be healthy regardless of what she desides, its hard just ask me, but u dont want her to do something that would harm her health or the baby, she might be scared out of her mind, she needs u to be there for her, just remember your mom and shes going to need u more then ever, on the other hand, if shes not dont be afraid to make sure that shes having safe sex and that shes on the birth control, something thats going to be right for her, i remember after the fact, my ma and i talked about birthcontrol after i had my baby, my ma said to me theres no way that i could go on the pill cuz i would forget, and she was right, i would have.

  • I agree with some of the other moms. I would ask your daughter outright if she is pregnant or not. I would also ask her if she is doing drugs. If she says no to either question I would take her to the doctor and have them do blood tests to check and see if she is lying. If she isn't then she is just being a moddy teenager or something is going on between her and her boyfriend and you need to separate them. Or she could be depressed. That might be something you want to talk to a doctor about too. Kids will self-medicate by eating, which could explain why her tummy is getting chubby. All you can really so is ask her and take her to a doctor. Have the doctors get to the bottom of why she is changing in attitude and appearance and why her appetite has become so big! I hope you can help your daughter!
