I just phones my mum and said...Your gonna be a nanny! and she was like what are you serious...she took it pretty well, and my father who I thought would FREAK out...didnt...he was very calm and understanding about everything...its seems scarier than it really is...believe me! Good luck...just come out and tell them....

I agree with xoxticiaXox it really is scarier than it is. Just be honest with them, its better to have their support early on in the pregnancy. It will make things alot less stressful if you just get it off your chest.

For me I was 21 and moved back home and I told my mom the dr couldnt figure out why I was so sick and was going to do another pregnancy test. (which was true I was so sick all the time and the drs couldnt figure out why and all previous pregnancy tests where comming up BFN) Anyway it came back + and I told my mom but she was already aware what was going on, it was my stepfather that was the problem. Well with the help and support of my mom we sat my stepfather down and told him, surprisingly he was very supportive and didnt yell. I would probably take your mom out for coffee and tell her first her support would be greatly appreciated in telling your father. i find father's take news like this the hardest. Good luck

thank u so much for your advice, its jst made harder to tell them because i dont live with either my mum or my dad and they are always on my back about stuff. Im jst really worried that they will not want anything to do wiv me.

hia carrie, your situation sounds a little bit like what mine was.. i dont live with my mum n dad and they were always saying how much i could achieve etc, so it was really hard for me to tell them i was pregnant as i didnt think they would speak to me again which is why i waited til i was just over 27weeks to tell them n they were great, my mum n sister have brought things for the baby n my nan cant wait to go baby shopping! my dad was abit dissapointed but hes not angry. i just wish i had told them sooner so i could of had there support, it would of made it ALOT easier! hope that helps x x
