Breaking the news to a very strict family

I am 8 weeks pregnant, and I have not told my family yet. They are very strict and only want the best for me. My boyfriend and I were already planning on getting married next fall, but the pregnancy happened a little sooner than planned. We are both extremely excited and happy that this has happened, but terrified of what my parents will say.

The doctors said there is a high chance of having an eHavensctopic pregnancy because my mother had one so we were planning on telling them when we found out on the 5th.

I would wait til you are 12 weeks pregnant. Try to talk with your boyfriend about how you're going to tell them. BUT I amputting myself in your situation.

When telling them I would reinterate (sp?) that you and your bf plan to get married and that you guys love each other. Make sure you have everything you want to sa tattoo y written out ( that's what I did when I got married, b/c my dad thought I was too young) Don't get mad or let your emotions take over ( that's what I did). I wish you luck! I got married at 21 and my dad was not happy. You will get through it it may be rough but you can do it.

I hope everything works out well for you I've been there just with a different situation! Keep your head up and hold strong to what you believe in and what you feel in your heart!

My parents are exactly the same way!! I'd wait until I'm well out of the first trimester. I told my mom 3 months on the dot hoping we'd bond. Let's just say that weeks after I told her, she let me know what was up and had me crying for an entire day. Then she goes, "if you plan on being a mom get some backbone." I haven't told my dad and we all stay together. She is so disappointed in me. She hasn't shown a shred of happiness. Anyway just wait until you know that the pregnancy is a pretty healthy one and stuff. If you have any concerns about your own health or the health of your child, you should always consult with a physician or other healthcare professional.
