  • Keep it positive....give them a copy of the ultrasound with a card that says congratulations you are to be grandparents again! Refuse to treat your pregnancy any way except as a blessing and a source of happiness.....

  • I would tell them you are PREGNANT, not preggo.

  • Sounds like you are an adult. Do you live with them? Because, if not, then it is not really their business.

  • Hand them the ultrasound picture, and say (with a big,happy smile of course) "SUPRISE! YOURE GONNA HAVE ANOTHER GRANDBABY!!"
    ANd keep in mind..last time you were pregnant..you were a minor..this time youre an adult.They don't have to like your finace, thats your business ..as long as you are taking good care of your children, not of it has to be thier concern.
    Congrats and Good Luck. :)

  • tell them that u know they have been understanding but love doesn't always stay in the form of happiness that they think u should be. Just enjoy every moment. The kids don't ask to be born so they should think of the kids . I know my parents didn't like my husband and they are supportive to my kids even if they don't like their dad.

  • I would tell my Dad and let him tell my Mom. Seriously though, if you don't live with them, I would just make sure to be upbeat and happy. Let her know this is a good thing and that you want this. Hopefully she will be okay with it. Good luck to you.

  • they werent too happy before im sure because of your age....no parent wants their 17 year old to come up pregnant but im sure they love your daughter very much and even though your mom may not like your fiance she will have to get over that..my mom hates my husband and it has been a big problem this entire pregnancy...however if you bring it to them in a positive manner and dont make it sound like you are ashamed or anything at all then they may react in a positive way and totally surprise you good luck and just come out and tell them with the ultrasound pic make sure both of you are there to share it and you are both happy and upbeat...congratulations

  • Congratulation on the new baby. I can see why your parents wouldn't be thrilled. You aren't exactly being responsible. I am not trying to bash either...I am just stating something obvious. Our you financially prepared? I am betting at the age of 20 with a 3 yr old that you are not. These are tough times and you are just making things harder on yourself.
