of course we can be friends I read your post and everyone is right, it's extremely important to tell your parents. I was TERRIFIED of telling my mom, buy she took it a whole lot better than I expected. and having family support makes the pregnancy a whole lot easier to get through. I told my mom by typing it out on my cell phone and putting it next to her and I walked away and came back 5 minutes later and we talked about it. maybe you should write them a note if your shy? well anyway, welcome to BG, and you can talk to me whenever!
