My name's Evelyn. I'm a junior in high school, sixteen years old, and I just figured out that I'm a little over three months pregnant.

Me = screwed.

 I haven't told my parents or even my boyfriend. I really need some advice to help me through the next few months.

Anybody feel like adopting a pregnant little sister?

Feb. 2, 2008 at 7:27 PM You should tell your parents pretty soon. I know it's scary, but they'll be able to help you. I don't know your parents, they might freak at first. I know I would, but in the end I'd want to help my daughter and just make sure everything was alright. You can get through it. :)

Feb. 2, 2008 at 7:29 PM The other girls are right.  It's scary but the sooner you tell people the easier it will make the rest of your pregnancy.

Do you have a care net pregnancy center around you?  They can help you with what your options are and to help you tell your folks if you want them to.   I used to volunteer at one in Washington state and they are very caring and not judgemental.

Feel free to contact me via messages if you want to vent or need a "shoulder"

You really do need to tell your parents and the father of your baby.  You have some choices right now as whether or not to keep the baby- adoption is always an option, and usually a good one at your age.  It's too late in most places for an abortion, so that option really isn't on the table, whether you believe in it or not.

Regardless of what you choose, you need to get care for yourself and the baby.   Most parents will be pissed off at you, but they'll understand.  You're human, you make mistakes.  But everything has consequences, and now you've got to decide.  But you really can't do this alone.  Talk to your boyfriend first, and then your parents.  Talk about choices with them.

I remember how hard it was telling my parents I was just a year older then you, I can't say they were happy about it but now we fight over who's keeping him what days and hes 17 now lol.

You are going to need some friends and it might be tough for awhile but when you hold that baby in your arms it is soooo sooo worth it. Make sure to finish school you will need a good education to provide for your baby and prenatal care means the world as to how heatlhy your baby will be. Congrats your going to be a mommy. :O)  Lisa

Feb. 4, 2008 at 3:19 AM sweetheart you need to have a talk with your parents. They will be ok, right now you and your little one needs some pre-natal care to have a healthy pregnancy. You will be able to graduate from high school, young moms do it all the time. I know a mom in high school who just had her baby 10 weeks ago, mom and dad are very supportive and they just adore their new grand-baby. Life will be different, but you will make it through the hard times, keep positive, everything will be alright.

Hey,

I got pregnant when I was 17, and I found that life got a whole lot better AFTER I told my family.  I figured they would be pissed, and they were...but guess what...they got over it.  They realized that complaining and being upset would never take back what had already happened.  It was great having my mom supporting me, and going shopping with me.  Just get it over with, and things will be a lot better.  Jeez...I can't even get my mom to stop spoiling him now.  The two of them are joined at the hip!

I just realized that this was posted in the beginning of the month...maybe you told your family by now.  Good luck with everything...and message me if you ever have any questions.
