Yup, go with *Katie*!!!! That's far more sensible than I could have managed.
we have only been together for around 4months which isnt long at all, and i feel as though this has happend extremely quickly.
we both have jobs, im part time where as he's full time, and he has also said he will stand by me no matter what happens, we may also end up moving in with each other if my parents dont accept it.
I've been in this situation quite recently, but decided to have an abortion. Even so, the scariest thing I had to do in the whole process was tell my mother. I nearly didn't.
They're your parents, they love you nomatter what, and even if they are angry at first, or more likely shocked and upset that they couldn't protect you from this, they will support you and help you. Speak slowly and clearly, and say it simply - there is no way to break this news gently. Explain what has happened, explain your reasons for doing what you're doing, and ask for their help.
I'm reserving judgement on your decision to keep the baby - I hope things work out with you and your boyfriend. I know this is not an easy thing, but there's no way round it. Your parents would probably be mortified to think you didn't feel you could tell them. So tell THEM, not a tutor or a friend. It might be scary, but it feels better when you've done it. Good luck.
Firstly, I think you've made the right decision. Whilst I'm not fundamentally anti-abortion, I feel it shouldn't be used just to make life more convenient. You're obviously capable of looking after your baby. Secondly, congratulations! It's not something to be ashamed of - it's a good thing, even if it's happened a bit earlier than you intended. Tell your parents sooner rather than later - they'll obviously be shocked but I'm sure they'll come to accept it. It's their grandchild after all!
picking the best moment is key
she started causing loads of rows between them, moaning at him 24/7 about working to much, but he was the only one with a job between them so was paying for everything so had 2 work as much as he could, to pay everything off, she was also his 1st ever girlfriend.
i do have some experience in looking after young children as i was often left looking after my younger sister from when she was around 10 months old as both my parents worked full time, i then moved on to do voluntary work in a primary school working with various ages.
Forgive me for not being as optimistic as other people in this thread but it seriously sounds like you're throwing your life away.
I realise I don't exactly know the whole situation etc but I would seriously consider having an abortion.
You've been with your boyfriend for four months, he's 27 and your 18 and you want to have a baby together?
How do you know next week he won't get fed up with you or vice versa, or even one year down the line.
He's 27, he's experienced a lot more of what life has to offer for young adults, you're just getting started!!!
Think about what it means to be a mother, you can't just dump your baby on your parents when you feel like going clubbing or to a party as that's not fair to them or the baby. Being a mother is a full time job - the novelty will soon wear off.
What about the financial side of things? Sure your boyfriend will support you but it will still be tough. Especially as you only have a part time job. You'll have to pay for food, toys, a cot, clothes, nappies and loads more!
I'm only trying to make you realise the harsh reality - wouldn't you prefer to find someone that really means something to you and settle down properly, after you've experienced all the things life has to offer?
At the end of the day, just my opinion, you know your situation a lot better than a stranger like me and you need to make your own decision. Just don't be naive.
Good luck telling your parents. x
Lol yea missed that detail!
Why was my post deleted? It's clearly a troll. Look at the attitude.
