I'm 15 and pregnant. My boyfriend and I have only been together for 2 months. My mom knows, my dad doesn't. And neither of his parents know. We're both terrified. Especially me because my mom had me when she was 15. If you have any advice or anything at all, just tell me. Literally anything. I'm clueless, scared, embarrassed, mad, and so much more. And I really just need someone to talk to.

You have options.
Abortion, adoption, and keeping it.



Explore them and choose what's right for YOU.



Good luck. :)

One day at a time sweetie, that's all you can do.
If you were my precious baby girl -and this is me, if my DD was 15- Yes I would be disappointed, but would be supportive and there for you. A few tears maybe, but that's all. Life happens. Choices are made in the moment. I know that and have learned from it. It's all you can do really. Live life and learn from your choices. Both good and bad.



I wish you all the luck in the world sweetheart. Take care of yourself and your little bun to be. :)

I was 17 when i got pregnant with my first note i am 18 turning 19 now with my second my first is only 9 months old and my second is due january 21.. the first child i told my mom the day i found out she was dissappointed cause she had me at 15 and she new it was going to be hard.. i told my dad with my son when i was 5 months and he took it very well he was so excited to be a grandfather, agin with my second one i told my mom the day i found out and my dad when i was four months again she was mad and my dad took it well he was mad that i didnt tell him first.. my advice to you, is jsut tell them and be straight up they might be a bit disappointed at first but they will get over it once you get a bit further along.. trust me.. and dont hold off to tell your dad even though he probably told you you ever get pregnant ill beat the boy dont listen he;ll be more then happy.. :D

You made the right choice in telling your mom. You have options! Abortion and adoption. Do you think you could raise a child at your age? Research all of your options and choose what is best for you.

It takes a great deal of courage to tell your parents and reach out for help in a time like this. I recognize that it's devastating to find yourself facing an unplanned pregnancy at this stage in your life, and I can imagine that you

I was in your position once, too. I was pregnant at 15 and had my twins shortly before i turned 16, and I had only been with my boyfriend 2 months also. Since your mother knows, you two should tell your dad first. Then, all of you, your parents, you, and your boyfriend need to tell your boyfriend's parents together and talk about it.
Since your mom had you at 15, she should be very understanding and supportive because she was once in the same position as you. If she isn't, then it might just take time for her to get used to it. Also remember that there is adoption and abortion (although abortion can be rough and I know I could never handle it..)
Be strong! If you need someone to talk to, I'm here! (:

Thanks everyone! My boyfriend and I are planning on sitting down with our parents next weekend to tell them the news. We've decided to keep it because I know there's no way I could go any other route. I'm going to talk to my school counselor Monday about online schooling and what I can do to get ahead before the baby comes.

Telling my parents wasnt fun either. I was 16 when I got pregnant and will still be 16 when my son gets here (: but I was with my bd for almost two years when we found out which makes me more comfortable about it all. But shit happens! I wish you and your boyfriend the best of luck and I hope you enjoy your pregnancy as much as I have! It goes by really fast!

Thanks! And I hope so. I'm already getting impatient. I know its going to be very hard and it'll change my life forever, but I'm actually pretty excited.

I went through the exact same situation. And my mother also had my older sister when she was 15. I was 15 when I had my first daughter. She is 5 now. Its beyond scary. Wondering how people will react to your pregnancy and being a mom at such a young age. I graduated high school and went on to college. I am now pregnant with baby number 2, Im 5 months. Dont get me wrong its hard being a teen mom but I wouldnt have changed anything about my decisions.
