Well first of me and my girlfriend are both 17 years old, grade 12 high school students. Both practically straight a student (she always has a minimum of 70% in her class and I have a minimum of 60% in certain class the rest 70%+ but we are both in university level courses), both very good kids. We've been going out for the past 4-5 years, we meet in grade 8 and started going out in grade 8. We met when I was djing the school dance (djing/music production is my choosen career). Recently we've started to engage in sex. Now she has told me that she is pregnant. First of all we havnt told our parents yet, we don't know how. She says she wants to keep the baby. What ever she decideds to do i'm going to stick with her no matter what. I just need some advice on what to do.
My husband and I were in a similar situation about 8 years ago. Staying together and being supportive is great. I personally wrote my parents a letter telling them that I was pregnant. It seemed like it would be easier for everyone to deal with, if it wasn't in person. It went over well, they had time to think it over and calm down before we talked.
We have been together since 9th grade and did get married right before we had our first son.
Make sure that you both finish up school the best you can and go on to college if possible. Now adays you have to have it for a good job.
Let me tell you that all of this worry and stress is worth it for the end result. A healthy baby.
Now we have four and wouldn't trade them for the world. They are what's all about.
Sorry to ramble. I hope that I helped.
