Hi, I'm Elizabeth I'm 15 and I just found out yesterday I was pregnant. I'm really excited and scared and mad (at my bf) we aren't talking right now because he wanted me to get an abortion. I'm going to keep the baby and I'm going to finish school even if I have to do it at home. I plan on going to college to so I can give my baby everything possible. I've been planning everything I looked at things like WIC and I want to try to get that and Medicaid. I kind of work I clean and baby sit I'm saving my money i'll be 16 in April and I'm going to get a real job ASAP. I really want to be ready when I tell my parents I know their going to be so mad but It was an accident and I'm going be responsible and be the best mom I can be. Does anybody have any suggestions on how I should tell my parents?? Thanks alot for reading I havent told anybody but my bf and I really hope I meet people on here I don't have alot of friends because I really don't talk that much.

Hey Elizabeth. Im Sarah i got pregnant when i was fifteen too. I was reallly scared too. but now i have a daughter her names Alyssa. When my bf found out i was pregnant he wanted me to get an abortion too but i wanted to keep the baby and now i dont talk to him and he has never seen Alyssa. Im going to finish school too and i applied for WIC and Medicade which is a really big help. You should probably tell your parents soon so that you can go to the doctors and all. They might be mad at first. My mom was but then she gave me a ton of support and she helps me out alot. If you have any questions or just wanna talk message me.

I already posted on your other message, but I just wanted to introduce myself to you!


Congratulations and welcome to the board!


I'm Ashley. 17 and 24 weeks pregnant. I'm due November 30th.


I hope everything goes well with telling your families. And I think a good way is to sit them down and ask them to please not get mad at you. And then tell them. If that is too much then text or e-mail them. I texted my mom when I was at school a few days after I found out and she didn't believe me. She made me come home and take a test. She's been supporive since so I hope everything goes well for you!
