Well I got pregnant at 17 turning 18 and I just straight up told my mom flat out that I was pregnant and she just said "well, that's great, what do you want to do?" and I said keep it, of course. I ended up having a miscarriage with that baby but I'm currently pregnant again and when I told her she was really excited. My mom told my step-dad both times and he just hugged me and said that he loved me no matter what.quote

I am 18 & am now 4 months. I found out I was pregnant on july 14th.
And I was sooo shocked about the whole thing & was scared & nervous to tell my parents but thank god I only had to tell my mom & she just dropped her jaw when I did!. But the thing is, is that I told her the day I found out & didn't know what to expect but I had good & loving support from my family. While having only 3 older brothers as well. When I thought they were going to be dissapointed in me, they all said they would be there for me! I am very thankful for that!

Reading everyone else's stories really made me feel like I'd lucked out. I got pregnant at 16 and was terrified to tell my mom. Everyone always had such high goals set for me and I knew it would come as a big disappointment. Of course it did but I wasn't the one who told her. My younger sister found out through a girl who was sisters to a girl who had heard me puking in the bathroom at school. After school that day my sister came home and told my mom. Who was surprisingly calm about it but wouldn't talk to me or even look at me. Anyways I'm 17 now and 30 weeks along with a healthy lil boy and she's excited about him but more terrified about birth than I am.quote

Quoting ***JEN***:" Thanks to pink_vee_dub for the sticky idea! We see this topic brought up a lot. Share your experiences! ... [snip!] ... How did you tell your parents you were pregnant? Or if you have any words of encouragement, please share as well "
Sit them Down And explain to them that you have something to them and that you dont want them to be angry with you but instead understanding , explain to them that you are pregnant and whould like there moral support in every dision that you make .

I found out I was pregnant with my son when I was 18. I called my mom and told her my period was late and I thought I might be pregnant. So she bought a test and told me to go to her house and take it then she stood over it until it came up positive. Then she stole the test and ran to show my dad as she started crying. She wasn't too much happier finding out this time around, but within the first month she gets used to it and starts to get excited about buying new baby clothes. BTW this one will make grand child number 5 and the oldest is going to be 7 in two months.quote

Well I am now 20, but was 19 when I found out I was pregnant. By the time I found out, I was already almost 8 weeks! I think honesty is the best policy. I strictly just told my mom and she was excited, not shocked at all surprisingly! As well as my bf's parents quote

Im pregnant and Im 14 years old. I was really Scared to tell my parents also my Bf.
I knew they would be disappointed in me but I still told them before it was too late. I told my mom in the mourning that I was pregnant for my Bf. She was really upset but she knew i would try hard to be a Great Mother. Right Now Im going to Teen Pregnancy School Called Cope. Dont be afraid to tell your parents becase they will soon understand

When I was 15 I got pregnant and I had no idea of how I was going to tell them but I had already told my sister not bc i told her but she took my make up bag one day and somehow she saw a pregnancy test i had taken and it was positive. She then asked and i had to tell her she already had a baby so she was supportive but at the same time she felt disappointed. I was already 5 months pregnant when i actually told my parents my belly never really showed as much as i thought it would so thats why no one really knew anything. I never had a serious bad morning sickness so i didn't have to hide that either. the only thing i would worry about the most was my period and how my mom noticed me different. Lol if only she knew i would think. At first my dad was mad and so was my mom they both cried and i felt so bad i cried but now they are happy and supportive and now they are super excited to meet their grandson and im happy that now i don't have to hide anything. My only advice to teen girls that are pregnant at a premature age just tell your parents up front and tell them what you want to happen they can't make you have an ABORTION IF THAT'S YOUR MAIN CONCERN [that was mine] well legally i think they can't but physically they can't its your body and YOUR BABY so if you want to be a mom then let them know that you are not getting that baby out until you are 40 weeks pregnant and having contractions.
GOD BLESS AND GOOD LUCK TO ALL.

I found out I was regnant at our weeks and like 3 days and I had been trying before hand and my mom had known this. One night I was having pains in my breasts and certain things were making me sick. the first person I told after I was at the hospital was my boyfriend he was excited then it was my sister she was shocked and didnt know what to say then she was happy Shortly after I had told my mom I wasnt afraid at all I knew she would support me. when I told her she was excited to have another grand baby she has two steps ones from my step sister. My grandparents were not impressed neither was my auntie I still told them though now its my dad I have to tell.. Still it is the best to tell your parents they are just afraid of you growing up thats all.quote

I took a pregnancy test just to rule out being pregnant, as my period was late, and I instantly got two lines. I was in disbelief so I took about six tests, all with different urine samples. I did not get one negative result. I'm 19, so I was crying and finally told my mom about a week after I found out. She told me to think about my options and what I wanted to do. I thought about abortion but knew that was something I couldn't do. When I finally told my dad he said that he knew something was bugging me and he wouldn't have forgiven me if I aborted. He was proud of me for being responsible about it - now both he and my mother are thrilled that they're going to be grandparents. It's scary but it's best to just get it out there early on. quote

Well I was 17 when I found out I was pregnant with my son and 18 when I had him. I was living at my moms and she was in the living room when I took my test and the second line was barely there so I just took the test in there she looked at it and said omg your pregnant and hit the floor lol Im sorry but it was sooo funny. My mom was super excited and she told everybody I think in about 5 minutes so I didn't have to worry about telling anyone. She even told my husband which made me kind of mad /: But my dad called me a few days afterwards and it was sooo awkward lol He was just like so girl anything you want to tell me? I said ummm nope (: I know mom already told you. He was kind of weird about it at first bc I was giving them their first grandchild and he said he wasn't a big baby person but that sure changed when he got here! I lucked out in the supportive family (:quote
