Well, I took two tests yesterday and they both came back undeniably positive.

I'm 21 and in school. I have a good job, and so does my boyfriend. We've been together for almost 2 years. I'm going to do whatever it takes to make sure my baby has everything he or she needs.

I was just wondering if anyone has any advice on the best way to tell my parents about this. They're going to be really upset, and I guess they have every right to be.

Anyway, and advice would be appreciated! Thanks Smile

I pretty much did the same, Ma what would say if I told you I was pregnant?

"well are you?" she asked not really sure how to react

"yes, I'm 6 weeks"I told her.....

She was fine and I was 19 at the time.. and then when life went on I got older I was 38 when I told her I was pregnant again... well that was more of a "WHAT!!!!!"

Funny how being a certain age, young or older, you get the "WHAT!!!!" REACTION but at the in between age.. they are over the moon right at the beginning....
