  • WATCH THE SHOW 16 AND PREGNANT..ITS A REALITY SHOW BUT CAN SHOW YOU HOW DIFFERENT TEENS SITUATIONS PAN OUT. I MEAN IF YOUR FIANCEE IS SUPPORTIVE THATS GREAT. BUT ULTIMATELY IT WOULD BE YOUR MOM WHO WOULD BE YOUR BIGGEST HELP. THE DYNAMICS OF RELATIONSHIPS CHANGE ONCE CHILDREN COME INTO PLAY. SO I WOULD TELL MY MOTHER AS SOON AS POSSIBLE SO YOU GUYS CAN COME UP WITH THE BEST PLAN.

  • You have to tell ppl when you're ready. I might wait until your b/f has a job for at least a month before saying anything. You need to make an ob/gyn appointment asap. At sixteen years old you are considered high risk, so you'll probably have to tell her sooner. They might notice the signs before you say anything anyway. Good luck.

  • I would tell her now, and tell her about the plans, let her see your excitement and she might share it with you.

  • I would tell her now to get over it. At 16 there are enough stressors with having a baby so young and you might as well get that minor one out of the way. How do you know you are 2wks pregnant? Two weeks is usually calculated to reflect the time of conception and you can not test that early and you would not have missed your period yet.

    Well anywho.. good luck

  • I am assuming that you mean you are 2 weeks late? then you are 6 weeks pregnant. If you were two weeks pregnant you wouldn't know about it yet.

  • I got pissed that my dd didn't tell me and let me help her through her's. Did you watch JUNO? Just make sure she/they are sitting down first. Sometimes the shock is a bit overwhelming for us old folks! Are you closer to one than the other? If so, go to that one then together go to the other one.
