  • Be honest and upfront with them. The longer you keep it a secret, the more they are not going to be happy.

  • I know it's going to be hard to tell them but the sooner you do the less stress you will put on yourself. Your parents love you and they will understand they may not be happy about it but they will have to get use to the idea and when they do it's gonna all be ok. Just pray and ask God to help you find the right words to say. Good Luck and God bless you and your little one.

  • If you no longer live at home which Im praying you dont cause of the abusive father then I would call them and have them meet you in a public place like MCD or walmart just some place theres ALOT of people and then tell them and if they threaten to do bodily harm to you then you can always get a restraining order against them .. Good Luck Sweetie

  • I am in the same boat. i recently moved in with my SO and out of state, and i just found out I am 4-5 weeks along. I am so nervous, but I know that as soon as I get it off my chest, I will feel better and not have the cloud of guilt over my head. just keep this in your mind ALL BABIES ARE BLESSINGS in some way or another.

  • I totally agree a 100% with ANGELLUVGODDES meet them in a public place where there is alot of people so if your father tries to hurt you the police will be right there to have them arrested for putting his hands on you when your pregnant dont be scare just be up front it will be a whole lot better to be straight up .Good Luck =)

  • How far along are you? Make sure you are out of the "risky miscarriage" window of being pregnant. Are you still in school? Could you talk to your school counsler? Maybe a counsler could set up a meeting with your parents. Good luck girl! It's not the end of life, its just the beginning!!!

  • You're a big girl now. You made the decision to have unprotected sex. Put on your big girl panties, suck it up and tell them. Obviously you weren't thinking about their potential reaction or the consequences of your actions when you had sex. You want to act like a grown up, now is your chance.

  • If I were u I would tell mom first since you have an abusive dad and tel her asap because this is not going away and you will drive yourself crazy waiting for the right time next time you see her just tell her and then take it from there with your dad. Congrats anyway...hope things work out for the best and take good care of yourself
