I have decided to pluck up the couroudge to tell my mum that im pregnant. As i have my first doctors apointment today i think it is probably the best time to tell her as she will see i have been resbonsible about it becuase i havnt put of telling her and OH. But im still really nervous about how she will react so i was woundering if any of you had any tips?
Well, since you have the appointment, I'd recommend sitting down and calmly telling her. You're just going to have to bite the bullet and be honest. Maybe tell her that you didn't plan it (unless you did of course!) but that you're trying to be responsible and have set up an appointment? You can tell her that (if you're okay with it, obviously) she's welcome to come to the doctors with you.
However, I don't know how accepting your mom will be immediately.. It took my parents a while to calm down and my appointment was booked a few weeks later and my stepmom came with me. So don't be too upset or offended if you ask and she's too upset to come. If she is, she'll come around, just give it time! My parents (biological and step) were all upset, but they're not nearly as bad anymore.
Just don't beat around the bush and be honest! Good luck! You're welcome to message me if you need!
I was really scared of telling my mum. Looking back I'm not sure why now!
I sat down facing her and came out with "Mum I have something to tell you but I'm really scared" and she said, "what is it?", so I was like, "I'm scared to tell you" and she went, "Are you pregnant?" and I said "Yeah". She then straight away got all excited and nearly started crying with happiness! I was pretty shocked.
From then on she's danced around the house saying "Katie's having a baby!" and pointing out where the moses basket etc will go.
With my dad I texted him as I don't see him as much, and he replied saying he was shocked but he'll ring me in a few days. He's now been looking at prams and baby clothes and is excited even though he tries to hide it
Of course not everyone's parents react as well as my mum did at first but eventually they usually do get excited. You just have to come out with it and wait for their reaction, if it's bad, to blow over. The fact you've booked an appointment shows you're taking responsibility and I'm sure your mum will respect that.
Good luck with telling her and enjoy your appointment!
You just have to tell them straight, face-to-face, it will make it so much easier, I text my mum and turned my phone off for hours, I regretted it so much, it made everything so much more tense.. Good luck
my OH made me.. he said 'Kirsteen's got something to tell you..' and she said 'your pregnant.' I was like yeah, then said i'm keeping it and left to go to OHs for the weekend. Sounds nasty but I wanted to give her some time to think about it all because she started to get a bit mad at me. Once she realised I was being serious and definitly keeping LO she started to come round and is now excited for me its not awkward and if anything has made things between us better. Best thing to do is do it in person and get it over and done with! i felt sick having to tell my mum like physically sick but after a few days I felt LOADS better x
i didn't tell my mom... i accidently left my facebook logged in on her computer and she read mine and FOB's mom's conversation
she was more upset at the fact that i'd told all their family first and not her... it took her 3/4 months to come round to the idea (cos she REALLY did not like my choice of FOB ) but now she's excited!
just don't let her find out from anyone else, if you just get straight to the point when you tell her then it'll be fine
I went to tell my mom with my friend, said 'i have something to tell you' '& she said youre not pregnant are you?' i said 'yeah' then she started laughing and hugged me, but she kind of expected it from how ill i was (my contraceptive wasnt working becusue of being ill)
Your mom might take it really well, you'll never know unless you tell her
