posted 5th Aug '12
I was 15 when I found out I was pregnant with my first child. My btothers fiance took me to get put on birth control when I found out. They gave me the test and she showed me the results. I just cried I told my brothers fiance. She called my mom to see if I could stay the night with her so I could let my brother tell her the next day. My mom said I could stay after she seen me. So I went in with the paper in my hand crying and just told her. She was disappointed but she said.we would make it througj it. Which we did. I found out I was pregnant in Nov.which I was 3 months then. I had my son the last day of school my sophmore year. I took my son to school with me and graduated with my class on time. Its better to tell your parents asap.quote

I had missed my period a lot before so I wasn't worried about missing it 2 times, (took 3 tests that were NEGATIVE) but after 3 months and no period, I went to the hospital thinking something could be wrong with me because I was told I could never have a child due to a surgery when I was 15. The doctor came back in and said "you're pregnant" I was in total shock I couldn't do anything but cry. I wasn't with the guy anymore and he had told me time and time again that he didn't want kids. And me being only 19 and just a waitress at a podunk bar I was so scared. (I would never get an abortion though) As soon as I found out, I called my mom and told her. I couldn't hide something that serious from her, so I decided to just come out and tell her. She took it way better than I thought she would, invited me to come home and be with the family and said she'd support me no matter what. Now she's super excited. She started baby shopping before I did!! Lol!quote

im 17 years old. im 29 weeks pregnant. my baby girl is due october 22. i told my mom the day i found out. I sent her a long text explaining how i can handle being a young mother along with picture of the pregnancy test. to my surprise she was not mad or upset with me at all. In fact she very excited. she miscarraid about two years ago at 7 months with a baby girl, and was torn. the father to my baby girl isnt too much involved.. so my mother has been going crazy baby shopping. its going to be hard being a mother so young but with the help of my amazing mother i will deffintly be able to pull thru! i think if anything my pregnancy has brought me and my mom closer then ever =]quote

So I moved in with my boyfriend in nov of last year. Well of course we were having sex. But we always used condoms. But I still ended up preggo. We found on on Dec 10th that i was. I waited till about two days before we were going to be coming home for Christmas break to tell my mom. I called her and told her I needed to talk to her about something. All she said was your pregnant and hung up on me. I was shocked and didnt know what to think. So when we went home she made me take three more tests just to be sure. I was like really mom..... So I took them with all of them turning out positive. I was happy about it. However she was not. I ended up getting pregnant 6 days after I moved in with my boyfriend. His parents took it way better then my mom. His dad was happy about it because it is his first grandchild. I was 15 weeks when we told the rest of our family. But my mom is happy about the baby yes. But she says its not real until she gets here. She will be here next week!quote

The worse thing to do, which is what I did, was texted her while she was at work and I was at a friends. She was mad because I had been hiding it from her for a month and that I told her through text.. But my mom is and always 100% supportive, they may be mad because of how young you are (which im 17) but they will never try and push something on you. My mom actually told me that abortion was outta the question lol. (not that I wanted one)quote

Well mine was alot different i didnt tell my mom. here is a sum up on my story... after me missing my peirod and having flu like symtoms i had a small feeling and my grandma asked me if i could be pregnant i said maybe, well at that time the father and i had been split up by his "church" where they pretty much brainwash people and take there money.. anyways; i got suicidal and i went up to the ER with my mom and grandma where they did tests. like taking my blood and all that. well the doctor came in and asked everyone to leave.. even my mother. well thats when she figured out i was pregnant. and she called my ex at the time (letting you know now we are married now) telling him i was pregnant. he was freaked out more then my own mom. she came to me and asked what i was going to do.. and i told her i was keeping the baby she stood by me. all i have to say is having my mom help me threw this was alot of stress taken off of me and very helpful i am so glad that she was ok with it, my step dad it was easy bc he is more of the its your life make it worth it but my real dad i didnt tell till i was about 3 months pregnant i was scared bc we never had a realtionship because he left when i was younger and started his own family. but i do recommend you telling your mom at least because its alot easier and less stress on you and your baby quote

My mom for like 2 weeks kept telling me I was prego and of course I didnt believe her so I got tired of her telling me that I went out and took a pregnancy test and yep I was prego. I wasnt to happy at first cuz it was not planned at all my bf at the time wanted a kid and I didnt cuz Im still in college and it was my first yr (going onto my second) I cried for like an hour non stop and my mom called me and I did a fake voice like it was fine but my mom could tell something was wrong so when she asked me what was wrong I started crying all over again she couldnt even understand.. all she said was come home bring the pregnancy tests and I was said if your just going to yell at me can you just do it now and he laughed and was like no hunny im not, I thought it would help you calm down a lil so I went to my moms and we talked and she was excited and said she was her all the way to the end no matter what and then was like now telling the family will be fun so we told everyone slowly everyone was and is still super excited as am i; I only had on family member not agree but im not close with that aunt anyways so everything worked out, I had a great baby shower and have friends and family her supporting me. best advice tell your parents even if you think they will get mad you might be supriced of the out come

I'm 17 weeks pregnant now & i'm 17.
I found out i was first pregnant at 6 weeks, I have good news and bad news about my story. When i first took two pregnancy test's they came back faded and I wasn't to sure what to make of it. Me and my boyfriend spoke about it (he's 19 nearly 20) and we decided it was best we spoke to my mum first, she's always been very understanding luckily I told her and she pretty much just went through all the "really?!" "I'm going to be a grandma! I'm to young" the usual things you expect to hear from most teen parents :') My mum was fine about it, she told me how my whole life was going to change but i respected that and i understood that. She told the rest of my family and they were all just concerned about how young i was to become a mum, But they were happy and really supportive about it. As for my dad on the other hand, it was the best way to go out. I absolutely dreaded telling my dad, i kept trying to persuade my mum to tell him, but she said it was something i had to do myself. Because my dad lives about 2 hours away and i hardly saw him as it was, I decided i should call him, which i did. I spoke to him on the phone, i gave him my news about expecting. Well.. he blew ahah. He pretty much told me i was not going to have a life or get a career ect. He didn't want anything to do with his own grandchild. But that's okay, i haven't heard off him since but maybe just hopefully he'll change his mind about everything. All you can do in situation's like that is hope. I wouldn't ever change my mind about having my child, i still can't wait!

I was seventeen when I got pregnant with my first. My mom actually bought the test for me. She told me to take it when I was ready and if it was positive I could tell her when I was ready. And if it were negative we would never speak of it again. I took it on new years eve and the next morning when I was coming out of the bathroom my mom looked at me and said "well?" All I did was nod my head. She then patted me on the shoulder and said, "welp now you gotta tell your dad". I went up to my room and my mom sent my dad to follow. Honestly I just layed on the bed with the covers over my head. I started to cry and he hugged me and told me no matter what I had done I could always tell him. I shook my head no. And he then guessed I was pregnant. I came out from the covers crying my eyes out and he held me in his arms. He told first things first, finish high school. Then he told me I was not alone, and that God would never give me more than I could handle. My father was a HUGE support my entire pregnancy and I would not have done it without him. And he supported me even more after the birth of my son. My dad used to own his own business that he actually closed down so he could stay with my son everyday so I could make it to school. Never doubt the love that your parents have for you.quote

As most teenagers i was terrified of telling my parents when i found out i was pregnant and even more so then usual, as i had been told at the age of 14 that i couldn't have kids. I am now 19 and will be 20 a month before i am due in Feb 2013.
The first person i told was my partner and he drove me straight to my parents house, we both sat down on the couch next to mum in the lounge and he just gave her the test that i had done that morning.
then he went outside and told my older brother, who is one of his closest friends, and my father. the reaction was better then i could of hoped and they are all so supportive of me.
