    I told mine via text... It is not recommended to do this as I made my dad cry... Just sit them down and tell them!

    Go to the doctors, get the results and sit him down. He'll appreciate your honesty and also, since you took it in your own hands to go to the docs it shows maturity...

    Sorry about your mum

    Good luck! x

    That one is totally up to you! If you think your father will take it better that way then yeah. Is he willing to stand by you?

    Good luck telling your dad. The only thing you can do that I would suggest is sit him down and tell him right away. I hate the thought of doing it over the phone unless absolutely necessary. He will appreciate you told him face-to-face. If I were you, I'd make an appointment at the doctor, get the results and then tell him - that wait you can show him you're capable of doing these types of things on your own. And it's up to you if you want to take your FOB/OH, if it makes you most comfortable then take him.

    First off, congrats! I was 17 when I conceived my first. Sit him down and tell him face to face hun, he'll respect you for doing it, for being responsible and mature enough. Expect him to take the news hard, anything less will be a bonus. However he reacts, he'll come around. Good luck!

    I sat down with my boyfriend and told my mum and she told my dad for me. We told them at 8 weeks after I had a scan and because we had a previus loss I wanted to make sure everything was okay.

    Good luck hun & congratulations on your pregnancy!x

    I found out early one morning and then crawled into bed that night and ended up crying to OH because I felt like I needed to tell my mom. So we drove over and I told her while crying and she told me not to be upset. I told my dad over facebook because we weren't close at the time. OH told his family alone without me there which I was happy about. They took it harder than my family but they came around fast. I found it uncomfortable telling people because I know everyone would judge me because of my age so when we announced it at Christmas to OH's extended family it was so awkward because of course all eyes were on me even though it takes two to tango! Just be sure to enjoy your pregnancy because I got caught up in everyone else that I was disappointed I had wasted so much time not enjoying my pregnancy.
