How can I tell my parents? I'm pregnant? Toughchoices13 Due December 17; Pensacola, Florida 9 posts

I'm 13 and I took a test in march April and may and the test always shows that I'm pregnant I had nausea in the beginning I've noticed a small pooch and my b**bs and hips have gotten bigger but it just looks like natural puberty. I know I can't keep on this rode but I know my parents wouldn't allow me to keep the baby. I don't want an abortion. So I'm kind of stuck at what to do?

Just tell them. Discuss adoption, finish school and go to college. No way can you afford a baby at 13. Good luck

Sit down and tell your parents straight out. Make a plan for what you're going to do and how you'll finish your education. Time to grow up.

Just sit them down and say it. They might be upset, but the longer you wait the worse it will be. They will be able to help you discuss your options. Good luck.

It's like ripping a bandaid. Just get it over with. It's going to hurt them worse the longer you wait. Sit them down and come out with it. Explain what you're feeling. If an abortion isn't for you, look into adoption.



Sure they're going to be mad, but can you blame them? Looking at it from their perspective might help you get through whatever backlash that may occur.

:!: and get in some type of birth control after the baby is born (if you choose to have it). If you are using birth control when you got pregnant find a new kind with your dr.

You're so young sweetie you really don't need to have a baby right now. Think about the baby and what kind of life it will have if its mother is so young. I had a baby very young and really regret it. Tell your parents and get the abortion or consider adoption.

The sooner you do it, the better off you will be.
Yea, they most prob will be mad, but whats done is done, and you cant change it.
The longer you leave it to tell them, the harder it will be.
Good luck with whatever you chose to do :)

The longer you wait, the worse it becomes. You need that time to clear the air with your parents and discuss options. You do not want a baby at 13. You have your whole life ahead of you, and your parents will be angry but they love you and will help you. Good luck.

It's a tough situation but it sounds like you've already decided against abortion. I agree that you need to tell them. Time to start making good decisions.

If you tested positive in march, it could be too late for an abortion, just putting it out there.
