That sucks, that sort of news should be delivered face to face! Hope you can rebuild a relationship for the sake of your new sibling!
I remember being taught "you should tell your parents everything"... Apparently they don't have to tell you important things like they're pregnant or engaged or anything important like that...
Via text? That's probably the worst possible way to give news that important. FYL, she should have at least told you sooner.
Um, I am wondering how OP didn't notice the baby bump during the pregnancy. And if it was because OP and their mum aren't close, OP doesn't have the right to be annoyed.
If OP lives some distance away from the mother and hadn't seen her in several months (or fewer if the mother is sufficiently overweight), it'd be easy not to notice. When I was in junior high, a friend of mine's heavy mother gave birth without my ever having known she was pregnant -- and I'd seen her less than a week before the baby was born.
Omg, this isn't too bad as long as you aren't 20 and she is over 30...
Well, they probably are. Since OP is not seeing his/her mother from at least 4 month, chances are he/she lives on his/her own, so OP can't be underage... And the mother must be over 30 (I don't really want to think she had her first baby at 13). But I don't see the problem about their age, the only thing that makes me think is that they don't seem to talk/see each other.
