Just tell them. Possibly have a friend with you when you do. Or the father. Good luck!

I feel for ya, Wondering and Scared. I really do.

My only suggestion is to go into any discussion about it with a plan. Know what you're thinking you want to do about the pregnancy. If you think you are leaning towards keeping the baby, make that known in your conversations. If you're considering adoption, be up front about it. Same with abortion - if that's something you're considering, share that with your parents/the baby's father.

Listen to whatever your parents have to say, but remember that this is your responsibility. If your opinion differs from your parents, then you need to talk with them about those differences.

I would suggest telling the baby's father before telling your parents. If your parents get angry and try to contact him, he needs to know (from you) what's going on.

Best of luck to you!

I smell a troll. Why would someone in this situation come to Topix of all places to inquire about it? There are pregnancy sites out there that can help better than this place.

Agreed. Either a troll or someone very dumb that does not know how to use Google or WebMD.

My thoughts exactly. Considering that the kids that age have grown up with computers and the internet, most are way more internet savvy than adults. If anyone would know how to locate information on the internet, they would. My bet is on one of our local trolls, trying to get everyone fired up.

I sure don't think those shows have glorified teen pregnancy! Those kids (most) have a really hard time/life in general.
