I was nervous to tell my family, as I was not in a very serious relationship (they didn't know about it), in college, and had recently moved back in with my parents due to medical issues.
I told my mom at the doctor's office, I asked her to drive me to an appointment and then told her in front of my doctor - part of the reason she was upset was because of medical issues - I needed to go off medication, and the doctor helped reassure her I would be ok. She was upset for a few minutes, but then said congratulations and gave me a hug, and quickly became VERY excited to be a grandma.
I was probably even more nervous to tell my Dad...and when I told him I think he was shocked, he was dead silent for about a whole minute afterwards. He then asked me if I was going to keep the baby, and I said yes, and he said "that's cool". He was happy and supportive.
SO's family was pretty much the same way. He didn't tell them until I was about 6 months pregnant (we didn't get back together until shortly before she was born), and the only thing they were upset about was that he didn't tell them sooner.Lillian Elizabeth 6.16.13
