Im telling my mom tonight, i have 3 pregnancy tests that i plan on showing her that are all positive, how should i tell her?

 

Well - November 15

If your mom is laid back, I would suggest saying "hi grandma" then showing her the tests. That's what I did...

I'm in the same sitution... And my family isn't laid back at all. Any suggestions?

well see thats the approach i was thinking about but she already has one grandchild a little gurl from my brother. im gunna give her the tests but should i just call her over and be like here, or like um i missed a period or what?

I'd sit her down and tell her that you had missed your period, so you took some pregnancy tests, and they all came out positive. You also should have some type of plan in mind with regard to caring for your baby that you can discuss with her as well. Good luck.

There is no easy way to say it. And it really doesn't matter how old you are. I had to tell my mom when I was 23 and she still had an adverse reaction. I think it is because if you are telling her you are pregnant, you are admitting that you had s_x. That is the part they really don't like. Just remember that it's your ball game and let it fly. I hope you keep it, or do the adoption thing. It's better for you. I hope that telling your mom goes well. I think my parents just decided to live in denial and tell themselves that I found my sun in a berry patch. Good luck!

when i found out i was preg i was s0o0o0o scared to tell my mom because my twin sis just had a baby 4 months ago n after she had her baby they kept sayin allyson u better not be next... well i was... i took 4 preg texts just to make sure. i couldn't tell my mom my self i went to my aunts house n told her n asked her if she would tell my mom... it took her a long time to get the guts to do it but she did it and i thanked her for it everyday!! my mom didn't talk to me for 2 weeks after she found out. my dad had a COW when he found out tho. they will get over it and be just as excited as u are. i thought my mom wouldn't be excited cuz this is her 24 grandchild but she is!!!!

your best bet is to tell your parents. The longer you delay it, the longer you'll be stressed, which is bad for you and your baby. They'll probably be angry and upset, but that's only natural. Afterall, they didn't imagine that their "baby" would be having a baby so soon. It may help if you have a plan in mind of what you want to do with the child, ie, adoption, or keeping it and how you plan on supporting yourself. Good luck and peace be with you.

How did your folks react?? And how did you tell them>?

 

CAROL - November 23

I had taken a test and gone to the doctor for confirmation. Before telling my parents, (even before I was pregnant), I made plans for moving out. So when everything had fallen into place, I said, Parents, I am with child. Then I said nothing and let them squak like chickens for a while. Once they calmed down, I explained my plan that I had (tentatively) planned out. Being prepared to answer their questions and such about these things seemed to calm them. They (being my mother) still bemoans, "But you're young!" occasionally, but since I'm beginning to expand (bloating, my life's curse), she's getting excited. Since I don't live with my parents anymore, they look forward to seeing me, rather than taking for granted that I am always there. No matter what, they won't be happy. Realize that you will catch a lot of flak and be prepared for it. Anyway, it's the least of your concerns, how to tell your parents. In less than a year you'll be in charge or raising a human. Now THAT'S something to be concerned about. Peace be with you all.

How can you be barely 15 and pay for rent and work or whatever. What do you do? Is your family loaded and your living off them? Or do you have someone helping you out?

 

CAROL - November 23

I share an apartment with an older cousin. Though people say it is impossible for me to have an income, I do, through some accounting work and writing. I'm not loaded, nor am I supported by my family.

 

CAROL - November 23

My largest expense is actually my health insurance and paying the maternity supplement. Though I am planning on having a homebirth with a midwife, I feel I need it incase things do not go as planned and I need to be in the hospital for whatever reason. It's not easy, but I am determined to make ends meet.

How much do you make?

 

CAROL - November 23

That's a rather personal question. It varies month to month (depending on sales, etc.). Usually between 2500 and 2800/month.

I don't believe you. Nobody is going to pay a 15yr old girl that much. Just what I thought. You ARE full of it. I'm 25, married and 7wks along with my first child. These other young girls on here may be dumb enough to believe your bull but if you were to come over to the adult site, you probably wouldn't survive. You are definatly a crazy girl. Good Luck- I hope you can make it and not fall on your face. And I hope you get luckier as a parent than your poor parents did. Hopefully your child won't do to you what you did to them. I've always wanted a little girl. That was until I visited this site. It scares me to death to think of the things that children are doing today.
