I am 18 years old and I might be pregnant how do I tell my mom?
The first time I got pregnant I had to tell my grandma. I was 17. It was unplanned, so I was terrified for myself, and about how she would react. She was disappointed with me, but since it had already happened there was nothing we could do, so she didn't bother with staying mad too long. I ended up having a miscarriage just a couple weeks later (I was 6 weeks) but I know if I hadn't, everything would be ok. Anyway, the way I did it was I walked up there to her room, knocked, sat on the end of her bed bawling, and handed her the pregnancy test. Before I left her room everything was alright again. I wish you courage :] it's a tough thing to do, and the more people you tell, the more real it gets. Especially once you tell your parents.
Well just tell her that you understand why your mom with be upset with you and you should tell her that you know she wants better for you but it was a mistake that happened and that you need to work with your mom and that you will need her support to make the correct choices for your baby and your family. I think its really important that you ensure her that you will continue with your education be that is what you and her want. You need to stay in school get a good job so that you can support your child and that your mother does not have to worry about supporting your child. That child is your responsiblity not your mothers. She already did her share raising you and your two other sisters, she needs her life too.
This is too everyone that answered to my question... Yea my sister knows that I am sexually active I was going to tell her yesterday but I just couldnt because I didnt know what she would say. Yea I am going to tell my mom eventually I was waiting maybe until she is in a good mood and then tell her but I dont know. I would like to tell her believe me but I am also scared of what my dad is going to say. Yea I am going to go ahead and make the drs. appt so that I know for sure that I am before I tell her, but I have a feeling that I am because I havent had my period for 3 months and I have been putting on some weight and plus I took three pregnancy tests to see and they all three came back positive.
yea, my mom expects more of me because she had 3 gurls and I am the only one that graduated and now I am starting college in the fall. I have a older sister she is 21 and she has 2 kids, then I have a younger sister which is 17 and she just had a lil boy but I am scared to tell my mom that I am my b/f keeps tellin me that it will be alright but I dont know. I am wanting to tell her but it seems like everytime I go to tell her I always back down. I already took 3 pregnancy tests and they all came back positive that I was pregnant so thats how I know.
Yea I know but its just that everytime that I do go to tell her I always back down and I dont tell her and it stays in the back of my head everyday because I know that I have to tell her. I was thinkin about tellin my sister bout it and see what she had to say and see maybe if she could give me some advice about it too. I am just confused about everything. I know that I am 18 but its just the fact of tellin my mom about it.
well, you are going to have to face her sooner or later... I would go to the doctor and be 100% sure before telling her anything! and then you will have to tell her. like sillists1 said.. if you can not face her face to face write her a letter and wait and see what happens!
What ever happens best of luck ...
and do NOT DROP OUT OF COLLEGE!
first make sure you are first, this happend to my sister. ask your sister or some you can trust and rely on for help, if anything goes down you can have someone to stay with, plan it out and if you are Settle it down with your mom and a family rember who can back you up and be your moral support so your mom can think twice and help you out
Sit her down and tell her calmly. If it's hard to tell her face to face, write a letter and give it to her.
tell your sister maybe she can help you tell your mom... does she know that you are sexually active?
just tell her.. your 18 she'll appreciate it once youu tell her but dont leave college!
