Wait until you can get a 3d/4d! Those things are freakin amazing, they generally do them around 20+ weeks - I got one done around 30 weeks or so and I could see details of my sons face and even what his hair looked like. Some places make you pay to have those done, but it's worth it.

It's so amazing what they can do these days. I remember my mom being pregnant with my sister in 2000 - and even then, she didn't find out the gender until she was 38 weeks because the ultrasounds weren't as clear and my sister didn't like to show her girly bits. Heck, I can even tell the difference between the ones from my son 4 years ago and the one we got for this baby.

You might not have to, I know the place I went to with my son did them for free with every ultrasound past 20 weeks and I know the place I am at now does free ones at the gender scan at 20 weeks. I would ask when you guys go in for another appointment.

Don't stress too much. Sure, they may be disappointed in you, but I have a feeling they will support you. I mean, they seem to treat you like an adult anyway, leaving you on your own for weeks at a time. Even if that weren't the case - what's done is done, they may yell, they may get mad, but there isn't any changing it and if you show them that you are trying to do whats right, I am sure that will help the situation.

i hope so. they are usually reasonable when i screw things up. i just havent done anything this bad b4. do you think i should tell him about the car first and then the pregnancy a few days later or all once.

It's like ripping off a band aid, telling them about each thing separately is not going to make them take it any better, lol - may as well just get it done. Get them home, maybe make them dinner or something and then sit them down. Be like "Mom, dad - I messed up while you were gone." and just tell them what happened with the car and then tell them that you and your girlfriend are expecting.



(I don't know what happened with the car, but offer to pay for it. >_<)

Freakin ouch! Jeeze - lol, no offense, we are car people but there is no way I would be letting my teen drive my Audi. :lol:



Definitely don't go out. I mean - don't cut your friends out completely, but definitely start considering whats going on when you guys hang out and the possible consequences. Besides, it sounds like you need rest.

My fiances dad bough his sister a vintage camaro for her 16th birthday and she flipped it the next day and it was totaled. You are not the first. Heck, I flipped my first car in exactly the same way (on ice) and it was totaled and that was 3 months after I got it. >_<



Are your friends also friends with your girlfriend? Because if so, I would definitely be careful, I wouldn't want them spreading rumors or anything to her, not to talk badly about your friends, but I work with high school kids, I know how they can be.
