I am 15 and just found out I am 2 months pregnant.

I am 15 and just found out I am 2 months pregnant.
I have been with my boyfriend 9 months but he has not met any of my family. I have met his but there is a bit of an age difference between me and my partner and most people don't agree so its hard coping with it all.

I did a test at my best friend's house

I was with her mum and her brother's girlfriend. I was so convinced I was not pregnant that I did the test and left it to wash my hands. They came in and told me it was positive. I burst into tears and my best frend started crying as well. All that was going through my head was 'what's my mum and dad going to say?'

My mum called me stupid

I could not face my mum or even bear to tell her, so my best mate's mum went round and told her while I waited at my mate's.
Knock knock, I went to open the door and seeing my mum standing there I didn't know what to say. I froze. We went back home and carried on as if nothing had happened, but she kept throwing sly little digs in like 'far too young' and she even called me stupid. I phoned my boyfriend but he didn't answer so I texted him saying 'answer your phone now we need to talk its important'. I phoned 5 mins later and he answered I said ' I'm pregnant!' he was like really I said 'yeah' he said he didn't know what to say. I had to put the phone down and burst into tears.
Later on that night I went to see my boyfriend and came home and went to bed.
In the morning I asked my mum if she had told my dad and my mum said she had and he just sat down and cried. He did not believe it. His baby girl is having a baby. I am so scared. I really want to keep this baby. I am against getting rid of it and people are just putting things into my head trying to make me believe things. I don't know what to do. I just want to wake up and everything be normal. It's happened too fast.

Editor's Comment

This is a very big thing to be coping with when you are only 15. I'm sorry that your boyfriend is not more supportive, but maybe he will be better once he is over the shock. The important thing is to think through your decision carefully. Although other people can help you with this it's important that you do what is right for you, and make a decision that you are happy with and feel you can live with. If you want to keep your baby you will need to find out what support you can get. If there is a pregnancy centre in your area they will be able to discuss all the options with you, give you lots of information, and support you. Look on the web site to see if there is a centre in your area. You can always ring the national helpline or log onto Online advisor for more help and support.
