Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Why don't you take a pregnancy test and find out whether or not you are actually pregnant. There is no sense in getting her all worked up over nothing. If you are pregnant, you'll have to tell her.as far as you having sex goes, obviously, it's not a smart idea at your age. You are not old enough to have a child, deal with an std, or any of the other potential consequences of having sex, especially if you aren't using protection.

Well, I suggest taking a pregnancy test before you tell her. You may not be pregnant, and scaring the hell out of your mom for no reason, isn't the best idea. And I think if you're going to have sex, you should be using condoms, and birth control, or you shouldn't have sex at all. As a pregnant 14 year old, I can tell you, it's not a good place to be in your life at this age.

HPT first, most dollar stores have them and usually cost less then 2$ and everyone that I've known to use them have never said a bad thing about them or been duped and honestly mothers even when they are mad and might over react, will never kill you. She gonna be heartbroken and excited at the same time. Remember as confused as you may be she is going to be the same. Her baby is now going to have to grow up.Most clinics will not help you unless you have parental concent, and in order to obtain that you have to talk to your parents. Don't wait until the last minute because there's huge risks for you and an unborn child going through this at such a young age if you do. There are also alternatives some more popular then others that you can also look into. Abortion and adoption being those. Two 14 year olds are not responsible enough to raise a child. A person needs to realize their full potential before taking on the challenge of raising a child. It's harder to do then what television shows you. You don't see them struggle to live because the producers are paying their bills for them. Not all people at your age qualify for assitance from any government because you are still a dependant of your parents. Most states can refuse assitance until you are 18 if your parents make more then their governmental income limits.
