  • I would wait until you are 3 months along. That is too much information to share with a teenager.

  • I agree. He might think you are asking for his permission or advice. You don't need his permission or advice.

  • Whether ur stepson likes the news or not, he should be privy ur agreement seeing as he will legally be you and ur husbands responsibility for the next 2 years, and that could and will be life altering information for him... look on the bright side, he may take it quite swimmingly seeing his age and the acceptance of it all.
