From a mothers point of view of my daughter first telling me she was pregnant, she sat me down and said I have some thing to tell you. I knew before she had even opened her mouth. Why you ask, yes it is our worst nightmare, BUT NO YOU GIRLS ARE NOT A DISSAPOINTMENT. IT TAKES A WEALTH OF GUTS TO KEEP THE BABY. Us mums do know you girls and you all seem to forget we were all young too and did things that we might not have done if we had really thought about it. Ok I agree there are some mums that are not so caring as we would like them to be, but Im sure they are not all bad. Or the other side of the coin is you will all know how not to respond to your own kids as they grow up. Im lucky I have a teen daughter who is a teen mum and I was a teen mum too, so I did the opposite of my adoptive parents and I dont think Im doing too bad. So please give your mums a chance you might be surprised once they get over the shock. I know I would never be without my daughter or my grand daughter. Im so thankful to my daughter for giving me the wonderful gift of my grand daughter, even though she gave me stick whilst I had her overnight to give her mum a break lol.

I just came out with the question "What would you do if i was pregnant? then we started talking a bit more and she told me she would want what was best for me and was supportive. Just tell your family straight. The worst thing they can do is threaten to chuck you out. but it probably wont happen. best of luck xxx

hey i just sat down and said i need to talk, i told her not to say anything til i was done, she ended up being so supportive and proud of me for being able to come to her. but id get it over with becase my guess is that your stressin more about her answer to you tellin her, then she will after you do. good luck

I was nervous about telling my parents. But my mum already knew. She saw the signs, and the morning (all-day) morning sickness. She actually asked me in the end. Then we sat down and told my dad. First he was angry and disappointed, but he soon realised there was nothing he could do, and that it was going to happen whether he liked it or not. Now they both adore their grandson :-))


U have to tell them - April 12

Well I didn’t tell my mother I actually spoke to my aunt who is was very close with and she came with me and broke the news to my mom. It was hard because you don’t want them to be disappointed, but you have to tell them its going to be hard on them but after a while they will come around. My mother did and she started buying things for the baby and everything.

I told my mother that I had a normal doctor's appointment. She said she'd take me and drop me off. When she came back to get me she asked what the doctor told me and just handed over all the free advice the due date and the paper that stated that i was pregnant of course she started to fuss but now she cant want on her little grandchild to arrive. I am 17 years old I start college in Jan. So as long as i stick my plans on out my mom is happy, But daddy on the other hand its hard for him to get that threw his head that he is a young grandfather.Hahahaha!!

Jennifer...Im 19 and 7 weeks pregnant my family hates my boyfriend with a pa__sion Im sOo scared to tell my parents myself. But when I was 16 I got pregnant (with the same boyfriend) and then I found out it was twins I had no idea how to tell my parents but one of my best friend gave me the greatest advice and that is to be honest. Easier said then done I totally understand but the more you wait the more p__sed they will be eventually they will come around and get over it and be the greatest grand-parents!! just keep your head up and remember you can do it!!
