    Good luck!

    Life rarely goes exactly as we planned, it's how we deal with the surprises that make the difference

    If your boyfriend is mature and you both want to get married, that's probably a good thing. You may want to wait until all that is arranged and sorted out with your boyfriend before you tell your parents (tell them after all plans are made for marriage, living arrangements, etc), it will be very likely be much less stressful that way.

    Hope all goes well for you

    I would suggest marriage really... maybe I have more traditional values.. but I think it would make things easier.

    But don't worry Barin Things always work out in the end. Just remember to keep your head high and to be proud of yourself. Don't mind the bad things that other people say.

    edit: What I meant about marriage really is that it's better that the child be raised by both a loving mother and a loving father (one would hope) so that they grow up properly and without any deficiencies in that area.

    Congratulations!
    We had our first baby when I was 24, but my life was far from stable. Don't worry too much because I can truthfully tell you that any stresses you might have will be well worth the joys that your child will bring you. Keep your head up and just keep doing the very best that you can. Try and maintain a good relationship with your parents, their support can make a world of difference. Initially, my father wasn't very happy that we were having a baby before he thought we were "ready", but he came around and I don't think I've ever seen a prouder grandfather. Now that he's gone, it's one of my fondest memories of him. I am happy for you, best wishes.

    I wish all three of you (you, your boyfriend, and your child) the very best Bärin.

    If you can get your parents onside, they can be a huge help. Like Galloglaich said, your parents will probably come around, but it may take some time (a few months, or even until the baby is born). When they see you holding a beautiful baby they won't be able to be angry with you anymore.

    Dos and don'ts of pregnancy? Don't drink alcohol or smoke. Do eat healthily - don't be afraid of putting on weight - you're supposed to! You should also see a doctor (if you haven't already) and get everything checked out - he should also prescribe you some vitamin & mineral supplements especially designed for pregnant women to ensure that the baby has everything it needs to grow.

    Bärin, we're almost the same age, even-though you're scared to talk to your parents perhaps you could consider it. Either way you have nothing to loose and at times parents can be handy when young couple starting a family. I wish you all the best and you will come out this situation, listen to your heart only.

    Congratulations for your pregnancy, she-bear. I don't think you should worry too much, you have the father of your child by your side, and I'm sure your parents will support you all the way, even if they might react unpleasantly at first. But remember, if they do so, it's because they care about you and worry for your wellbeing.

    On a sidenote, it's such a joy to know that many of our female members have become mothers. For the rest of us, which haven't babies already, it's a reminder what one of our roles for preservation is. Having children is the most sacred way a person can contribute to our preservation.

    Thanks for the warm wishes.
    Last night and this morning, me, my parents, my boyfriend all had long talks. My parents were first mad, but then they accepted it. My mother, who had seven of us, values the meaning of motherhood.
    I wouldn't want to give my child away for adoption. It would break my heart.
    Anyway... I'm going to get married before the child is born. No religious ceremony and "sacred" things, just a civil law marriage so the baby will be legitimate.
    I have appointment with the doctor of course. So, let's hope all goes well. I'm learning to accept the situation.
