Sam- Telling your parents is the hardest thing you'll have to do, but it's necessary. They need to know so you can get the medical care that you will need. Yes they will be mad and disappointed but they should respect the fact that you are willing to own up to your mistakes. A good book that you might find at the library is called "Mom, I'm Pregnant" by Reni L. Witt. Best wishes!

Hey Sam! I'm not going to lie, it is going to be really hard to tell your parents, because you may disappoint them at first, but give them time to let this sink in. I'm 20, and I was still very nervous and scared to tell my mother, I had no idea how she would react. She felt sorry for me at first because I was balling my eyes out, then when reality sunk in she was a bit mad, then she pa__sed the stage, and is hoping it will be a girl. So hun as much as you don't want to do this, you will feel so much better knowing that you don't have to hide this secret anymore. Your family will be more supportive of you then you think. Remember they love you unconditionally. What really helped both family's to be more supportive is that me and my bf had a meeting with our parents together and told them what we were going to do to prepare for our wonderful gift, and we told them that we need support from them more than anything. It will work out I promise. You can do it!!
