Today, I found out that I was pregnant and sent a picture of the positive test to my boyfriend. Before I got a text back from him, I got his newly updated Facebook status that read "This has got to be the most depressing day of my life." FML

I hate how important conversations have been reduced to a text message...

#1, I'm not sure, but I do know he likes to give "pokes!" ;)

We live in a world where boyfriends find out about pregnancy via text. SMH

Condoms are a great invention.

I was conceived with a condom, just sayin. Maybe OP and her boyfriend used one as well. OP, why did you tell your boyfriend through a picture of the test?! Isn't that something that's better told in person?

23...why the **** would you know that? Some parents need to learn to keep some shit to themselves.

23- I was conceived the same way. 30- My mom told me because she thought I would see myself as a stronger person because "ain't no condom hold me back."

34- too bad it also says "You were an accident. We didn't want you."

38-most pregnancies are accidents.

A responsible parent would tell his or her child that he or she was conceived despite using a condom so the child would not hold the false believe that condoms are 100# effective.

57 is right, you should use 2 condoms instead of one.

Me too!! Broken condom babies UNITE! (:

Wow, I'm feeling kinda left out here. I guess I'm one of the few babies who were actually planned. Well, my parents SAY I was planned.....

68 - I hope you're being sarcastic. Using two condoms creates friction between them that makes them more likely to break or fall off. Stick to one condom and use it with another form of birth control such as the pill.

95- Of course I'm being sarcastic. That was one of the three things we were actually taught in sex ed.

103- How to unwrap a condom onto a ruler and what it's like for the teacher to poke us with said ruler.

#30 - It's not like I ASKED, lol. My mom will do anything she can to embarrass me. It makes her laugh when I squirm with disgust. Edit: Just read through the other comments and it does make sense for her to tell me, even though it's gross, because it's important for teens to know condone don't always work.

Condoms* Damn iPhone autocorrect :P

My husband and I wanted to wait to have kids. I was taking birth control...I still got pregnant. I am so glad to have my daughter but I wanted to join the others who are saying that contraception of any kind is never 100%.

It's a nice day for a White Wedding. Your dad owns a shotgun, right?

Well even if he doesn't it's still a nice day to START AGGAAAAAAAAIIIIIIINNNNNN!!!

Well, if you weren't trying for a baby then that's a pretty possible reaction. But then again, those are the consequences of sex.

Yeah if they were not trying to have a baby I don't understand why OP would be so shocked by his reaction.

trying for a baby or not, sending a picture of a positive test probably wasn't the best way to tell him

regardless of wether they were trying for a baby or not, she probably shouldn't have sent him a picture of a positive test.

The real question tylagrace is whether or not she should have told him via pic regardless if they were trying. Care to weigh in?

Maybe he'll warm up to the idea...? Anyways, congrats on the baby!

I hate how important conversations have been reduced to a text message...

I think the point of the text was to send the picture. It should have been followed by a phone call, though...

7 Not everyone can do phone calls tho..

I think if she had time to take a pregnancy test, take the picture of it, and then send it, there was probably also time to do a phone call. Yeah, it would've been better in person or least on the phone, but if OP was trying to do something surprising and sweet, I don't blame her.

Agreed! My gf told me she loves me in a text. It was sweet but I wish she had done it in person..

It probably seemed like a cute idea to send a picture of the test result

While I guess it would be a cute idea. OP was probably so excited (if they were trying) that she couldn't wait to tell him in person and so sent him a text. Personally I'd rather phone them than text..

Excitement or not I can see no reason to do that kind of news via text. It needs to be done in person if possible or phone if not. If someone broke news to me like that through a text message, I'd be depressed at the thought of the habits like that that they would pass onto the child.

Yeah, if they both were really trying to have a kid. Otherwise, not so cute.

Maybe he was posting about a death of a family member and had not read your text?

that's very specific... Are you OP's boyfriend????

I hope not!.. Let me just go check my phone

Op, I'm sorry your boyfriend doesn't share your enthusiasm of having a wonderful addition to your life's. But congratulations on the baby! Hoping you have a complication free pregnancy! :D

Disclaimer: this is posted under the assumption that the OP and her bf are high school or college aged. Maybe I'm just painfully old-fashioned, but I don't think that having a baby out of wedlock is a good thing. I still hope she has a complication-free pregnancy and that her baby is healthy and happy and all that, but I think saying, "congratulations" is sending the wrong message. Life is a gift, but unwed parenthood isn't.

Grammar Nazi on patrol. "Life's" is incorrect. "Lives" is correct.

66- Calm down, he's just trying to be optimistic.

66- Oh, yes, lives. You are quite correct. :) The deer was right though, perhaps I was trying to be a little too optimistic. ;)

How are you so sure? It happened shortly after OP sent the picture, so it makes sense that it has to with the pregnancy.

*whoosh* feel that breeze on your scalp?
