liz you can't have a abortion. its murder. tell your mom and i'm sure she might be mad but she will get over it and come around. the sooner the better

Charlotte- The baby's father can get into a heap of trouble because you're under 16. He can be arrested or forced to pay child support (or both). You have to sit down with him and get a straight answer as to what you both plan to do. Best of luck.

Scared - March 9

Hi, im almost 23 and i just found out last night that im pregnant, not too sure how far i am yet, but i suspect about 4 weeks. im planning on telling my mom tonight (on my brothers birthday) and i am so scared. the worst part is that my boyfriend isnt really happy about it and he is keep on talking about "plan B" which is probably an abortion. he says that we're not ready for it, but my theary is that if you can play around then you have to suffer the consequences. good luck to all you ladies out there.

TO CHARLOTTE - March 11

charlotte, you should tell your mum or a relative like your aunt maybe? Even a teacher at school. The bottom line is you cannot keep this a secret forever, everybody will find out. Explain to your family how you are feeling. I am sure they will be mad at first but that is natural. I am 24 and I know my folks would be like that even though I am a grown up in a stable relationship. I hope you and your baby will be safe and healthy honey. Just plan how you are going to tell people. If you can show you have taken responsibility for your actions (and tell them you did use protection!) and have a plan for the future, then there is not a lot they can say really. So, sit down and think long and hard about what you want for this baby and for you. Make it clear you understand you need your family's support but you are also willing to do whatever you can to support yourself and your child. Refer to your baby as YOURS not as 'it' or 'the baby'. That is more personal and shows you are thinking of him/her as your own. I hope you will be ok honey, take care and keep us posted. Alternatively you can do what my 22 yr old friend did which was wait until her mother noticed her growing tummy and then broke down but I don't think that's really the most mature way to approach this do you? xxxxx

pregnancy is a very hard thing so if you dont tell them other people will find out and they will be more mad that you havent told them rather than the pregnancy so tell them or you will regret it

 

brandi - March 14

Well if i were u i would tell them right away so they didn't be mad at u for that. Tell them that u didn't want to tell them because u thought they would yell at u and never speak to u again
