So I recently found out im pregnant. I haven't yet told my boyfriend nor my parents. I am known as "good girl". I run track and do gymnastics. I can't skip practice without telling my parents. I had big goals for my future, go to college and get my masters degree. My boyfriend is trying to go pro in golf. My fear is that he is going to be mad because he cannot live out his dream anymore. Im so scared of what the future has to hold, I can never sleep anymore and this is always on my mind. I don't know what to do...

Tell your parents and your bf and consider all your options.

I think the best thing to do is tell your parents and boyfriend and figure out what will be the best option for you at this time. The sooner the better.

I'd first of all tell your parents & bf..



Parents seem like scary ogres sometimes but 1/2 the time you hit the jackpot & at times like this they may just love/support you unconditionally.



My sister was also 17 and pregnant.. just gave birth to her son & my parents were so supportive/loving.



Decide what your options are, what you would like to do..



Keep the baby, adoption, abortion etc.. and then discuss it with them openly.



Good luck.

i'm 20 and pregnant. I was scared to death to tell my parents at first because of how strict they are. At first they were upset, which is quite normal, but now they are very supportive. It's better to go on and tell them than to hide it and they find out on their own.

There are many women who really want a baby you could consider adoption, I don't believe in murder (abortion), but another thing is that a baby doesn't mean the absolute end to all your goals. You may have to work a lil harder but its not impossible

I am a Christian also, an abortion is always an option. Christianity says nothing about adoption. That part makes no sense.

Well since you have decided to keep it, you need to tell your parents and your boyfriend ASAP. The longer you delay, the harder it will be. You also need to make sure you get proper prenatal care.

Don't hold off on telling people.. Your options are time-sensitive. Good luck with however you decide to handle this :)

My step sister got pregnant at 16. ( 2years ago) she was also scared to tell my parents turns out they were really cool about it. She is now going into a program to become a STNA. You can still have a child and live out your dreams.
