Hey. Im 17 and three months pregnant. I told my parents the day I knew because I figure theres no use prolonging the inevitable, and that they would appreciate my honesty rather then me try and hide it from them. I also think that when you make a choice to become a parent, you have to stop caring about what other people are going to say to you because everyones going to have an opinion about what your doing but as a responsible parent you have to listen to yourself. So basically I feel very strongly about being open and honest and not ashamed about my choice to carry my child to term and raise it. My boyfriend hasnt told his mother yet. First he didnt want too because we werent sure what we were going to do. Then he put it off a bit because he was scared that she would cut him off. We live together, so he wouldnt be kicked out or anything, but his mother is his only parent and she made it very clear she would no longer welcome him if he got a girl pregnant. (expecially an underage girl like me, hes 22) Then he didnt tell her because he wanted one last happy birthday (when he turned 22) and he keeps promising to tell her but he hasnt yet. I think he is being very immature about this, and dishonest to his mother. I wont go visit her or anything because I feel its wrong that he is putting me in a position of having to lie to her. Its making me angry and hurt that he is ashamed and scared and I dont know what to do. I wont call up his mother and "rat him out" but im so tempted because of the way he is handling this..or rather isnt. Any ideas?
