how do i tell my parents and my boyfriend :/
You NEED to tell them. okay? Please don't keep it to yourself! Tell your parents first. Just say "Dad, Mom, I have something really big I need to talk to you about." And tell them. Don't get defensive! Just tell them honestly. And your boyfriend... well, if he got you pre.gnant, then you really need to tell him as soon as possible. He and you are BOTH responsible, and if he's any sort of man, he'll help you and stick with you. =)
And are you going to keep the baby? I really hope you do!
I'm here for you to talk to, if you ever need me.
First off, are you sure? Have you "done it" and taken a p.r.e.g.n.a.n.c.y test that proved to be positive? Those might be silly to ask, but sometimes people immediately jump to conclusions if they've skipped their period. If you've answered no to any of these, then you likely are not p.r.e.g.n.a.n.t and your body has just skipped due to stress or something else.
If yes, then I'm glad you already are here to ask, rather than trying to hide it or going straight to get an a.b.o.r.t.i.o.n :). I would suggest to do what Bekah said, and talk to your parents. Wait for a time when they're not too busy, too angry, or anything like that. Try to set them aside so they have your full attention, then tell them. They might be shocked at first, possibly even a little angry, but don't be scared. All your parents want is the best for you.
Do the similar thing for your boyfriend. As Bekah mentioned, you two are both responsible for the baby, so he should know as soon as possible as well.
Situations like this can be stressful, and you might need to vent a bit. If you need to talk with anyone, I'm always around here to listen. Although I personally hope you keep the baby, it is in the end your choice and I'll be more than willing to lend an ear if you need one.
well guys i was talking to my boyfriend last night on the phone, and i told him i might be pregnant, and hes like 'WHAT? THAT WAS MY FIRST TIME!!!!?' and i was like i know, but remember, it was like a spare of the moment thing, we didnt plan it and we wernt protected remember......? and he started crying.... he was a little pissed off and than rang me back and was like, baby im sorry, i love you and ill do aything for you and this child... <3 so im going to his place today and we are getting a p.r.e.g.n.a.n.c.y. tester.... *preying im not* only because im 16 and i dont think im mentally ready for a baby... but he said if i am he wants me to keep it and yeah :) we arnt telling our parents till we know i am 100%! <3 his parents love me so i hope they dont freak out that bad.. i dont know, im like 3 weeks late, and i just have this feeling inside me, like mothers instinct :3 if you know what i mean?
and i will update yous after today :D
i will update yous after today :/ <3!
Guess what guyz :D im super excited!! <3!
What happened??!! =D
Hey sweetie, I was in the same boat you were a few weeks ago and I am actually pregnant. I have to tell you to be honest not because I want to scare you but, my parents are the type that took it really rough. I told them I wass keeping the baby and well it jut so happens they want other wise. But i stayed strong and kept with what i wanted. Now im not gonna lie i have repercussions. I cant see my boyfriend and i can only have my phone for certin hours but i believe it will all be worth it in the end. I might still be very early for pregnancy but i love my child. And if you are get on prenatal vitamins right away and get to a doctor to confirm the pregnancy. good luck :) im always here to talk if you need me:) keep your chin up sweetie pie.
im having a baby :3!!
*Hugs Jade carefully* You're having a baby?!?! I agree with what Bekah had said. Have you told your parents or boyfriend about it yet?
boyfriend! :) i went and saw him and we did a test and im pregnant and we are telling out parents this weekend at the family BBQ we are having :D! <3!
Have you told anyone else yet?
Well you should think back to if you even had intercourse. Then think if you had protection. You should tell your parents then go to the doctor. Your obviously going to have to tell the guy. He needs to know. :)
i have told my partener, and i knw how babies are made... of course we did 'it' and no it wasnt protected, because we didnt know it was going to happen ahaha :L but yeah, told my parents yesterday and they suport me 110% ^.^ like they say, if your mature enough to have se.x your mature enough to look after a baby :3!
I'm so happy for you! It'll be tough having the baby, I'll admit, but, if you think ur ready to take care of it, then, you're all set. as long as you just be the best mom you can be, everything will be fine. Just a suggestion, but start planning now for the future.
thank you ^_^ hahahah im only 5 weeks along but yeah me and my partener are planning to get our own place soon :3 hahahah but yeah im so excited!
Welcome to the club then. I'm about 2 months in... not sure how many in weeks. But I'm both nervous and excited. It'll be a long process though.
And if you're already thinking this way, I think you'll be a great mother.
Inkslinger, she lost the baby.
how do you know :(?
