I am 2 weeks pregnant and I don't know what to do.

I am 2 weeks pregnant and I don't know what to do.
It was an unplanned pregnancy. I was drunk and I actually had sex with my close friend and he has a girlfriend.
I don't want to make things hard for him and his girlfriend, furthermore he's serving his sentence in a hostel now.
I really want to have this baby, but I don't know how to bring up this issue with my parents. This is my 2nd pregnancy though, the first one was when I was 14 and I went through an abortion.

Editor's Comment

You are in another difficult situation as the baby's father is a close friend. It may be important to talk to him first so that he is aware of the pregnancy. There is no easy way to tell your parents. You could think about whether a friend or family member could do this with you or sometimes a pregnancy centre may be able to support you through this. If you want to continue the pregnancy it would be good to think through what network of support you will need, and find out if your parents will support you. A lot of big decisions to face but take one step at a time and please contact CareConfidential to find some support in your area.find a centre for crisis pregnancy support in your area.
