  • that depends on your situation. but no matter how you decide to tell them, they will find out eventually. you're stressing over nothing. just tell them like you would anything. "hi mom, hi dad, i'm pregnant." (just don't be calling anyone grandma or grandpa!)

  • it'll be harder if your younger...what I did was I showed my mom the test (it was the third one I took) She didn't have a freak out, but my dad found out (who doesn't live with us) because we needed my innurance card and it got sent to his house and he called to see if we where ok and why we needed it, so I had to tell him and let me tell you it was not a pretty phone conversation, I was bawling, and he was yelling then blaming my mom...I was 20 years old..not even a teen, but I wasn't married and still lived at home so in his eyes I wasn't ready..but proved him wrong...

  • I walked out with the pregnancy test when my mom was sitting on the couch. I never truly told my dad. Then I had an abortion.

    This time around I called her and told her in a way that she knew she couldn't try and convince me that I wasn't ready. She's been supportive throughout the whole pregnancy now. You've got to be confident in yourself.
