Sat my mom and step dad down. Flat out told them I was pregnant, but of course tears in my eyes. Mommy then said " I knew it, just waited for you to tell me" with a big smile on her face! Mother's instinct is crazy

Aunt told mom. Mom told dad.

Mom tried convincing me that I wasn't healthy enough and that I should consider abortion. Dad didn't say much because he was deployed at the time.

We just sat all 3 of our parents down and told them together. My Dad was disappointed at first, but he came round very quickly. Chris's Mum cried and his Dad didn't say anything. However they all love Seth and can't wait for the new baby

I told both my parents over the phone. Well, actually my boyfriend told them lol. My mom was just in complete shock. She didn't want to face it for a long time, but towards the end of my pregnancy she came around and now she loves Mikayla. My dad however, isn't very involved and he never has been. I don't really care about his opinion or if he cares about us...

Hi, just wanted to ask everybody what their parents were like before. Everybodys parents seems so amazing and accepting of their grandchildren (who are all very beautiful btw), I'm possibly pregnant (finding out within the next week) and if I am I really dont think my parents are going to be very happy. I was just wondering what your parents were like before, like if they ever warned you that "getting pregnant will ruin your life" ect. My mom is famous for saying it and it really bugs me because i'm sure its not the case. If I am pregnant, I want my parents to be accepting of this child. Is there anyone out there who does not have their parents support? or anyone who never thought their parents would accept it, but was supprised?

when I was pregnant with Matthew, we bought both our parents a little bouquet of 3 roses with a note that said "can't wait to meet you in june."

with this one, we took an old t shirt of Matthew's and wrote "big brother" on it

my mom thought joey and i had a meeting at his work, but we really had a meeting with the doctor.. when we got back she asked how his meeting went, and i said 'mom i need to tell you something' and as i looked over at her i started to cry.. and all she said was 'no... no... your just a baby!!' hugged me then eventually said 'i'm actually kind of excited'.... i left telling my dad up to her... he just hugged me, said 'stuff happens.. we'll all get through it together'

<div align="center">I was so scared to tell my parents, i thought they'd flip(i didn't tell her till i was 11 - 12 weeks),cause i'd just had a major bust-up with my bf and she thought it was cause he was 9 yeas older and that it made him paranoid i'd cheat on him (go figure)!!!! I told my mum over the phone, when she was at work! I was like ''i need to tell you something, but i can't'' she was like ''is it financial'' i said no. she said ''medical'' and i was like ''kinda'' so she asked if i was pregnant and i told her that i was! At this point i was in tears! She was like ''it's ok these things happen, what do you wanna do'' i just told her that there was not much i could do (not that i was gonna do anything BUT have this baby!) She called my dad and told him! He just said to tell me that whatever i chose they'd stick by me! I was in total shock! I was expecting shouting and major dissapointment......but no!!!!!


**BTW, sorry it's so long, lol.</div>

It was the day after I found out and I couldnt keep it from her any longer, my mom and I have a very close relationship and talk about everything, I was worried because I knew she wouldnt be very happy with me. DH came with me to tell them. I told her that DH and I wanted to get married sooner, and she instantly knew what I was going to say. She said "Your dad is going to be so mad" and she told my dad. He wasnt, he was actually very supportive of me. My mom was disappointed for awhile but came around after we found out what we were having. Now they cant get enough of him. Owen and my dad are best buds
