mm, your mom is going to find out one way or another. I think your best bet is to have an adult with you when you tell her. The counsellor who offered to tell your mom with you is probably your best bet. She'll understand and be knowledgable of the options avaliable to a young lady who is pregnant. Her presence will likely keep your mom in line.

i might tell the counslor but i still need to know if ne1 knows where i can go to stay. my mom may be ok with someone there but i dunno what she will do after they leave.

Where do you live?

chicago suburb/franklin park

That's not that far from where I live... Anyway, since you're so close to Chicago, you should easily find somewhere/someone that can help you. Do you plan on keeping the baby? Adopting out? Abortion? Have you decided?

thanx carol. i will call those and see if they have to call my mom too. i wanna keep the baby but i dont have ne1 to help. i wont kill it and i really want to keep it. i saw it when they gave me an ultrasound and it was so neat and was moving all over. i luv this baby and want to raise it. i know im young and ppl will say mean things but i dont care. this is my baby and i will find a way to take care of it. do i have to tell the babys daddy? can i keep it and not tell him or does the hospital make you tell him?

I'm not sure about whether you have to tell the father or not. The father of my child, while he knows he is the father, is more of an observer from the sidelines. I suppose you could always say "the father's not involved" or that you don't know who he is. Then how can they get anyone involved? I know you feel young at 14, I actually just turned 15 myself. But unless you are self sufficient/employed etc., it is going to be very hard to care for this baby on your own. This is why it is all the more important that you tell your mother, so you can plan whether she will come around and help you (I'm a__suming you'll need her a__sistance), or if you, truly, will be taking care of the baby on your own.
