im seventeen and have only been with one man. we were with eachother in late august and i just recently found out i am 17 weeks pragnent. im not showing much and i havent told my mom. im terrified too, we are soo close and i dont want to wreck that closeness by her not trusting me anymore. we used a condom AND i was on the pill but was on antipiotic for strep throat and didnt know it made the pill not work. i didnt think the condom broke so figured i was in the clear. i got my period for the first three months after but after missing my last i found out i am over four months along. not sure what too do. any advice? help?
Be honest with her. You were using double protection and being smart about it. You need to get proper medical care immediately to make sure your baby is not harmed since you are so far along already. You could use her support more than ever.
I would not suggest writing a note. You need to talk to her face to face. You were practicing safe sex. There is nothing you could have done (other than NOT having sex or POSSIBLY taking Plan B, but that is no guarantee). It is important that you talk to her now and don't wait. The longer you wait the worse it will be for you AND the baby. Both of your healths are at stake here.
I've honestly experienced the same exact situation you are in now, a few months ago. I am pregnant now and telling my mom was the worst part of the whole thing so far. It's not going to be easy but you have to say something now for you and the babies health. I waited for almost 2 months to have the courage to say something. It hurt but I know it's something I had to do and get it over with. In all honesty your mom will not take it well. I had many problems with my situation but i've been through it all. She will soon except it and in the mean time you will be thinking nothing will not be the same with you and her like it did before but in time ya'll will be closer then ever. My mom and I have always been close and had a special bond but after telling her I thought it ended but now i've realized my mom would never leave my side. If it helps have someone there to help you tell her for instance a aunt or something. Hope I helped you.
Prove you are mature enough to handle a baby by being mature enough to sit down and talk face to face. Communication is the most important thing here - understand how she might take the situation but also express how you feel and what you want. Don't get mad if she convinces you to get rid because at the end of the day, as you will eventually find out, mums just want to do what is best for their children. So do what's best for yours too. If you feel ready then go for it, but if not consider adoption (im not sure if you're too far gone or not for abortion) but ensure you are doing what is right for you AND everybody else. Consider all angles and perspectives to the situation. Wishing you luck. xx
Also in the same situation. I'm 17 and preg too(24 weeks and 3 days). When I found out I was preg I really didn't know what to do n scared to tell my mom but the following day I ended up telling her. You need to be honest and tell her the truth. Yes she's going to be disappointed but very supportive as well..inbox me if u wanna chat
