  • I was 18 (i'm 19 now) when I told my mom I was pregnant. I just called her & told her she was going to be a grandma, same thing with my dad. If you want you could just meet up with her somewhere & just be blunt about it. She'll more than likely be happy & excited.

  • I was 18 when i got pregnant. Well at first my mom had told us some so called bad news. and she had been down for a while. Well we told her and it cheered her right up. So maybe you can tell her when she tells you some bad news. But if there is no bad news, just sit down with her and tell her you love her, and tell her you have something important to tell her, and than tell her. Hoped i helped.

  • First off congrats! I suggest you just be honest and tell her. Your an adult and even though she may not be happy with the reality of your pregnancy- its best to just be upfront and honest and take it from there.

  • It depends on how good of a relationship you have with your mom.

    If you get along with your mom, then tell her that you would like to have a talk with her... alone. Then tell her why you wanted to get pregnant and that you and your boyfriend are ready for it.

    Your mom will probably tell you "aww hon, you are so youg. you dont know what youre talking about. you dont know this and you dont know that." But you need to understand her point of view. She will be shocked. Her little girl is going to be a mom. But if your mom loves you (and im sure she does), then she will accept it and will be happy about it... sooner or later.

    If you dont get along with your mother at all, then dont even bother telling her.

    I wish you good luck.. you can make it!

  • CONGRATS!!! Keep in mind that this should be a happy time!
    I was 19 too. I had a sonogram present. That normally makes more real.

  • I would wait until your first doctor appointment and you have a sonogram. I waited to make sure everything was okay and I had "proof". They were pretty shocked! I told them over dinner and they made me go home and take a pregnancy test to make sure. I was 23!!!
