First, before deciding how you will tell your parents that you are pregnant, start by booking an appointment at the Pregnancy Resource Center to confirm your pregnancy, have an ultrasound to determine how far along you are, and meet with someone to talk through all of your options. (All services are at no cost to you)
Ok, let’s be honest…telling your parents that you are pregnant is not a conversation that either you or your parents want to have. It’s perfectly normal to experience extreme fear and anxiety about telling them something that you know will disappoint them. When I ended up telling my mom for the first time she guessed before I even told her.
But you will get through it.
Likely, they will be upset, but they will survive the news. It is not the end of the world even though in the heat of the moment it may feel like total devastation.
So, how do I break the news that I am pregnant?
