  • Wasn't anything special. I went to the ER for some other complications and they did a urinalysis and found out I was a few weeks pregnant as well. Mom was right there with me, so we both found out at the same time.

  • over the phone. I just said "I'm pregnant!" I was living 3 states away at the time. My mom was pretty mad that we called my MIL first. She says with the second she has to be told first.

  • well.... i ran the six blocks to my mom's house with my pants barely pulled up from peeing on the stick.... and was sobbing so hysterically that she literally thought someone had died... but later we had a more rational conversation later lol. all's well that ends well!

  • I just told them. My mom 1st & cried like a baby & qapologised then she said that she is happy for me & she is sorry that this was not in my BIG PLAN for my life & that it's happened, no use she gets upset. It's done. My dad on the other hand went white & then said something very bad to me. A week later he called me at work to ask how my mornng sickness is going. but now he hates my boyfriend!

  • i called my mom the minute i found out. in all honesty, my parents have never been supportive about my pregnancies. but as soon as i had them everything changed!

  • The first time I gave them a gift bag with a baby shoe in it. The second time which was a huge surprise to me, I just called because I was in a panic.
