im 17, And me and my boyfriend have been together for a long time, we had plans to have children, but not this early. basically we had just told my mom a week ago that we knew we werent ready to be parents yet, and that we were being safe. Little did i know, I was already pregnant. Since i've found out i have re enrolled in school, got a job, and my boyfriends in college and working. So I'm taking steps towards growing up and im trying to prepare myself because i know this is going to be easy. i just need to know how to tell my mom without devistating her. She was also a teen mother, shes now a single mother of 5. i'm sorry im rambleing, my boyfriend doesnt understand that i need to TALK. And have in depth conversations. plus he's terrified, but is going to tell her with me. please adviceAnswer Question

Just be honest honestly no matter what she will always love you! It will hurt her more if you prolong telling her & it sounds like you and your boyfriend are taking the correct steps to better your lives & prepare for this child she may be disappointed but i don't think she will look at you any different.

Hey doll, I was in the same situation, just a year younger. These ladies are right- sit down & tell her what you told us. You were being careful, but you're working to make a good home for the baby. She may surprise you! My parents were upset, of course, but so supportive. My dad (who I was most worried about) told me to hold my head up & not let anyone think less of me, because I was the same person I'd always been. My mom even threw me a baby shower! This will be hard, but you sound mature enough to make it work! It can be done. Send me a friend invite or a PM if you'd like to talk some more, ok? Hugs!
