Hey guys! I just wanted to see if any of you guys can give me some advice!?! Well here is the thing… I just recently found out that I am pregnant… my doctor’s appt. isn’t until March 2nd, but I already have three positive home tests! I am 21 and my boyfriend is 23. We just recently moved in together early this February! But the thing is that I am terrified to tell my parents.. I have no idea why… I'm not al little girl no more but for some reason if won’t come out of my mouth when I talk to them. Anyways just wanted to see how some of you told your parents….

I understand completely.. Although I'm not married and only 17 But I think that it would be difficult at any age.. I mean they're your parents and now you're going to be a parent.. Its a happy time, but its also very scary.. I couldn't even tell my parents.. My BF freaked out and called my mother and told her when I broke the news to him lol.. And then when I had to tell my dad, I got my BF to call and tell him before I talked to him.. It was just too hard and I'm already afraid to talk to my dad

But I think they all come around somehow in the end.. Even if they don't show it, I think that they're all happy somewhere inside because they're getting a grandchild That's like one of the best gifts ever.

well, I know my mom very well, and she's got a great sense of humor and she's a really warm fuzzy kind of person...I got her a card that said "Congrats on your new granchild!" then inside there was this cute little poem that ended with "ready, set, spoil! Let the grandtimes begin!!" (I cry almost everytime I think of it)
And then I wrote inside "Mom, not knowing your reaction, I thought I give you this card because even though this was unexpected, and you may be disappointed in me now, I hope that one day you'll back at this card and remember it as one of the happiest days of you life."

She read the first line and was like "Wha...Grandchild? Huhn? GRANDCHILD!! OMG!! YOU'RE PREGNANT!!" and to my surprise she just jumped up and started crying tears of joy and kept saying "OMG I'M SOOO HAPPY!!!" then she came over and gave me the biggiest hug ever! I swear it was totally a kodak moment!!!

I think the best way to tell your parents is by keeping in mind their personalities. If your parents like to joke a lot, then play a joke on them where the punch line is "I'm pregnant!"...If they're very quiet ppl, then have them over for a nice quiet dinner, and just tell them at the end of the meal. You know them best, and know how to talk to them better than us. If you're happy abotu this pregnancy, then make sure you tell them in a happy way, regardless of what kind of reaction they have. They need to know this is a good thing to you!
And of course CONGRATS ON YOUR NEW LITTLE BEANER!!!! WOOOHOOOO!

Hey!! It seems like not that long ago I had the same exact post "How do I tell my mom?" I know what you're feeling. I'm my mom's "baby" so it was sooo hard for me to tell her. I mean, she knew I wasn't a virgin (my fiance and I also live together) but I was just scared as to what her reaction was going to be. I thought she was going to be disappointed in me, and that's always my worst fear when I'm dealing with my mom. So I just called her and said "Well I have some good or bad news however you want to take it. I'm pregnant." And then she didn't believe me and thought that I was kidding! Lol. Well finally I told her I wasn't kidding and she got really quiet and I asked her if she was mad and she said no, that being mad wouldn't do any good. Well things have been going great. She called me yesterday and said that she got some "cute things" for the baby, so she seems really excited. Good luck if you haven't already told them. I know it won't be as bad as expected!

Heh, with my first pregnancy I was only 15........ It was "somewhat" planned which I know was quite irresponsible of us, but no regrets!........I didn't tell my mom until I was about 6.5 months along, mostly due to the fact that I was scared ######less......... I had moved out already, had my own place, and so she didn't see me every day.... She did say that she had some idea though..... lol

When Ry and I found out about our pregnancy this time around, I was quite nervous to tell the family....... Mostly thinkinb about the last time around, although 9 years has passed since then.......
I ended up telling my mom by accident when I was 12 weeks along early December....(We hadn't planned on telling anyone until after Christmas for two reasons, 1st being that my son was going to be told on Christmas morning, and 2 because we wanted to make sure everything was going smoothly).......

I didn't tell my dad until about 2 months later and he was well, quite upset with me because I hadn't told him earlier......

But they are soooooo happy for us!
