17 and pregnant -boyfriends reaction

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
Yesterday I posted how I was 17 and my boyfriend is 22 and I'm pregnant and scared. Thanks to the people that offered support and I'm sure I'll need lots more.

I told my boyfriend last night and he thought I was crazy for thinking he'd be mad. I thought he'd want nothing to do with me. He said he loves me too much to even double think about his decision. I am so glad he is accepting this.

I don't know what to do next. I know I need to tell my parents but I'm not sure how or when. Even though I am relieved that my bf is ok with this I am still terrified.

Tell your parents now. Its best for them to know early than spring on a pregnancy to them. Make a doc appt asap so you can be seen and get the prenatal care you need.

Goodluck and congrats.

I am glad that he supports you! I was sixteen when I got pregnant and my sons father was 20. He ended up leaving a few days before my son was born but that is okay. Your going to need as much support you can get. It is not going to be easy but it will be worth it! I'm seventeen about to be 18. My son is about to be eleven months and we are doing good! I am graduating 2 years earlier then I would have in public school and I am trying to figure out what I want to do career wise. If you need anything at all message me! A baby is a blessing ! Congratulations!

You and your bf need to go together and sit down with your parents and tell them. It's no easy way to tell them besides just doing it. Good luck and hugs!

Well said.

Most people do ;)

Forcing yourself to grow up before you're ready tends to impart a wisdom that most find much later in life.

Quoting Danesmommy1: For some reason, I always think you're older.

Glad he is supportive! You'll be just fine. Life is only going to be harder, but it's still manageable! :)
