Thanks everyone for helping me determmine if I was pregnant or not. It turns out I am. So now I have to tell my parents and I know it's not going to be easy. So if you have any ideas on how I can tell them please let me know. Thanks again.

You will need to sit them down and flat out tell them. There is no easy way and they will not be happy for you, I am sorry to say. I do not recommend having a friend present for such a b__w. I think that you will need to find a strength within yourself that you did not know you had, especially if you plan to keep the baby. I think that anyone who plans to keep their baby ought to find the courage to announce their pregnancy solo. Exhibiting maturity can only help this situation:) Best wishes!!

Your parents are going to be bearing most of the expense and much of the work involved with this pregnancy. It is only fair that you bring them in on the decision-making as soon as possible. Get over with it. The mental anguish of trying to hide the inevitable for months is not worth it. I would choose the parent who will handle it more calmly and say "Mom, I need your help telling dad some news he may not take too well." Come back to this thread and tell us how it goes. Your story will help others.

I told my mom today. She was upset but really didn't say anything. All she did was tell me that she was dissapointed in me and that i would have to go live with my father because she could not trust me anymore. So thats that. Now i just wanna know what i should be expecting in the months to come. Thanks a lot.
