Hey!!! Can i just say im sooo sorry for the m/c, i had one in december so i know what you went through. I am TTC #2. Im young myself, just 23 and have a 5year old son. I like you was 17 wen i got pregnant. When i found out, i just told my mum. She woz fine about it, she told dad same night. He too was obviously a bit gutted as i was still young, but he was ok. Mayb u should sit them both down and tell them, mayb with your bf there with u! Im sure they would rather find out like that!! It is hard bein a teen mum, BUT...its the best thing thats ever happened 2 me! Being young doesn't make u any less of a mum....have a happy and healthy9 months. U can always msg me if u fancy a chat or anything! :)

Hey Im 17 also and 12 weeks pregnant. it was hard telling my parents but i survived through it. My parents werent happy at first and even kicked me out i was on the streets for 2 and a half days. My aunt came and picked me up later April 15th. My parents are now ok with the fact im pregnant and i have tons of support from family and even my parents friends. dont be scared to tell them. the longer you wait to do that the more angry they will be.

I was 14 when I got pregnant with my son and 15 when I had him.  I bet even you all think that is young.  :)  I just wanted to encourage you ladies that things are going to be okay.  I think you made a great decision in choosing life, whether you choose to raise the child or adoption.  I know I wanted to raise my son and I did.  It was very hard and I ended up getting married at 16 (not to his father) to have a more stable environment for us.  I had his sister 3 years later, but, while my ex-husband did take care of us financially, he was awful emotionally and I left at age 22.  I did it all on my own again with two for another 4 years until I met my current husband and things are great.

I definetly recommend getting your education while you're young.  I didn't finish high school so I could stay home with my son, instead I took my GED and passed in the 90th percentile.  I'm not too big on high school, but it can get you into college sooner.  I just very much recommend going to college however you can.  That way you can provide for your children the way you want to.  I never finished college, and I really wish I had.  Sometime I definetly will just for me.

I don't mean to sound old and preachy here, so I'll stop.  Just wanted to encourage you and give a little advice.

Ps.  I'm also 14 week pregnant now.  My son will be 13 in August!  I can't believe I'm doing it all over again.
