HI i was 16 with my 1st pg i dint know how to tell my mum i was so scared, in the end i didnt need to tell her she guessed she didnt support me vry well unfortunatly (we was going through as vry rough patch as a family at the time really dont blame her for taking it badly) i ended up losing the baby was vry young though and sooooo not ready the nxt time i was 17 again my mum guessed she just seems to know these things again i had a miscarrige The last 3 times i was living with my ex so she didnt guess i had to tell her the first to times i told her over the phone was so scared after her reaction last time but she was so excited to become a grandma unfortuantly lost them 2 babies as well, But this last time i waited till i was 12 weeks to tell my family i just showed them my scan photos my mum has been so great and supportive helped me buy alsorts for baby, dont be scared by there reaction as u can see from my story there views can change all the time.
My grandparents on the other hand was so excited everytime, picking names out and alsorts was suprised by there reaction but made me more excited
Good luck telling ur family trust me they will be fine xx

If I had got pregnant 6 months ago it probably would have been v easy to tell my parents as I'd been with my partner 5 years and owned a house together (we're 22). We then split up and had only just started seeing each other again when I found out I was pregnant. I conceived three weeks ago and I'm living with my step mum at the moment so I just went for a walk with her and pretty gingerly told her I'm pregnant. I'd worked myself up to it after a week of missed period and positive test the day before. Had a great chat and will tell my dad once he's back from holiday and telling my OHs parents this weekend. Feeling really positive and will probably move back in with my OH once my first trimester is over. Hopefully all the family will take the news well!! Both sets of our parents were early starters!

So all the family know now. My dad is very worried and I think is ignoring it as much as possible which is a shame because I'm very excited and myself and my OH are in a good position right now. He said he'll give me whatever support I need but I really need him to be happy. My OHs parents were over the moon which helps a lot they guessed straight away when we said we had news. Well his mum didn't even wait for us to say anything she could just tell, amazing!

NsOx - my dad finally started to be happy once he realised how excited I was. I guess the happiness is kinda infectious! Just tell him all the cute little facts like what stage the baby is at and your name plans and speculate about whose features he or she will have. My dad loved hearing that my baby is Jelly Baby sized this week.

Have you told any other family yet? Maybe they could be with you when you tell her, or take your boyfriend along. Why do you think she'd kick you out? Just make sure she know's you're happy and have a plan, maybe she'll be excited about being a granny Smile

Good luck.

although its the most scariest thing i have ever had to do.. i just told them straight, asked them to come into another room to chat.. and just came out with it.. depending on your parents views etc.. they may be shocked/upset or whatever, but they will come round! at the end of the day its your lift not theirs.. so dont worry and just be brave xxx

I didn't tell my parents at first they found out when I was two months. I was bent over the toilet and the cleaner came in. Both my parents started screaming and I was kicked out, well actually I left. I wish I'd been straight with them from the beginning, I always think of what it could have been like, better or worse. Just be straight with them and try not to keep the secret too long because it starts getting hard when you start being sick and having horrible cramps or even start showing. Good luck. Nic xx
