I am 20 years old with a two year old daughter. I found out last week that I am pregnant again with my second child. I am not married but I live with the father of both my children. My mother is supportive of my life style but I am afraid to tell her I am pregnant again.
I have a friend who is in the same situation as I am. I'm young, not married, not attending college and I've got two young children. When she got pregnant with her second child, my mother called her a stupid dumb girl for getting pregnant again. She told me that that if I ever got pregnant again she would "kick me to the curb" and wouldn't watch either of my kids.
All this stress is eating me up inside. I have not been feeling well lately and I am afraid that all of the inner tension will take a toll on my health and possibly even my baby's heath. How do I tell my mom I am expecting again? Pregnant Pam

Dear Pregnant Pam
Being stressed out and pregnant can not be good for your body right now. Try to get what's bothering you off your chest and take a deep breath. Hopefully, you will feel much more peaceful once you free your secret. Being honest is always the best policy and we can only wish that your mom will share in your joyous news.
Please prepare yourself emotionally to answer all the questions your mom might have for you when you break your news. She may ask if you can afford to have another baby? Or who is going to watch after them when you are at work or school? Try to come with a plan of action. Also let her know that you will be needing her help.
Having your boyfriend there for moral support is also a great idea. Even if your mom isn't excited for you at first, she will learn to love your baby... she will have a new grandchild after all! Congratulations on your new addition, I hope you are excited!
