Hi,

i need some help, and I know this is probably stupid.

I am so scared to tell my parents that I am 6 weeks pregnant. I do not know what they are going to do. The words won't physically come out of my mouth, and I need advice on how to do it.

I can't even sleep anymore, I cry all the time, and I don't know what to do.

I got pregnant last year and my parents found out, but I lost the baby. I do not know how to tell them I let it happen again. I am so scared, but I need to do something. Please, any advice would help.

Hey girl. If you really cant say it maybe you could just write a letter to them?

You know what?? My mom was going through my room because I was acting different and found the ultrasound picture in my dresser drawer. I didnt really have to tell her she confronted me about it...It was a weird situation, then she told me dad. Try doing that...Leaving the ultrasound out..Or something..And have her find it. My ultrasound was with all my pregnancy books I bought at goodwill...So she found those too.

Thanks for all your help so far ...

To answer someone's question, i'm 17 and the baby's father is 25, and no, he's not with me. He broke up with me when he found out. And I plan on keeping the baby.

I am thinking of all of these options to tell my parents. I'm going to go make myself some dinner, and think about what you all said but I will be back on here later.

Thanks so much, it really helps to talk to people who actually understand. Wink

Seriously I know its hard you guys but you have to tell them.... I mean it expensive having a baby even before the baby comes out and if you 17 your still on their insurance i'm 18 and 4 months pregnant and I got pregnant on my birthday well atleast thats what the doctor said. Seriously I know how hard it is my parents didnt talk to me for 2 months after they found out and I had to move out but we've worked out our differences. You need to get in to see a doctor hun and be healthy and take prenatal pills.


When I went to try to tell my mom I tried so hard in fact I was sooo happy about the whole baby ordeal until they found out. I started acting weird and like tried by taking my mom out to lunch but she ended inviting my brothers so I didnt have the guts to tell her in from of my 3 protective brothers. But she just realized something was up and asked me herself. She was furious just screamed and ranted and raved about me getting an abortion saying it was the only right thing to do. Shes excepted it now and is even happy to find out the sex of the baby on monday. Trust me though hun the longer you keep this from them the harder its going to be and the more pissed they will be they find out.


Let them know that you need their love and support that you know how hard its going to be and that your life will forever be changed dont let thm push abortion and remember they cant force you to even though your a minor and they are your parents so dont worry.


Please tell them though anyway you can just be prepped for whatever you get back trust me once its all over you'll feel soooo much better

i support you 100000% and if you ever want anyone to talk to i'm here... And I rarely sleep haha...

I told my brother first he was pissed off to no end. Then I told my mom and she was pissed but supportive she called my dad and he said oh ok. He also said I only had 2 options to keep her or give the baby to them so ya it was easy I told them the day I found out I was preggy

I didn't even et to tell my mom. My sister called her and did it for me. I was pissed off then, but now i'm glad. The sooner you tell them the sooner they'll just have to accept it.
