That's amazing! How are you feeling mama? I would imagine that pretty soon you're going to have your first ultrasound and get to see your little peanut wiggling all over the place. It really is a magical experience that you will never forget.
I'm around about 15 weeks now, so entering the second trimester; scary.
I do have scan pictures, but I'm currently in the city visiting family to tell them about my situation and they were the one thing I was supposed to remember. Oops, haha. When I get home, I'll try and get something posted for you all.
So, yeah, I've told my dad's side of the family. They were all very shocked, obviously, but all very supportive and interested. I'm going to be catching up with some really old friends whilst I'm here, God only knows what they're going to think. Then, I'll be tackling my moms side of the family in a couple weeks.
As for people at home, nobody knows. Finishing school for summer means I've barely seen anyone at all now, and my bump is still quite small and easily covered so luckily nothing has been spotted. I know they're all going to find out eventually, but they're at the bottom of my priorities and I'd rather the father's girlfriend found out from us than some random. Yes, that means she still does not know. I know it's getting late, but he and I have not been able to prepare in the right way.
Mine and the father's relationship I can't even put a label on. We've barely spoken. I think to myself "Why would we?" even though this is a serious situation, and the baby is obviously the reason why we would talk. I just don't know what kind of relationship we're supposed to have. I feel like even adults would struggle in this scenario to.
In a couple weeks, I'll be going home for a scan testing for genetic problems and all of that, which I'm kind of nervous about. But once it's over and hopefully everything is okay with the baby, it will be a reassurance.
Wow, this is long. I hope I haven't rambled too much.
I feel like the sooner I get it out to my family the better, I don't want to hurt their feelings any more by keeping it for so long. And as for the particular friend, I'm going to start calling her S, I think she's pretty much got every right to know.
Your friend should know what happened. She is probably going to be really angry as it is but both of you keeping it from her will only make it worse. Especially if she is still with the father of your baby. He shouldn't be leading her on like that. She has a right to know he cheated on her and the longer she's with him she may have stronger feelings for him and the more hurt she will be by it when she finds out. I suggest you guys tell her before she finds out through someone else.
I know what I should do, and what the right thing to do is. I want to tell her, I want to get it out I really do, but I just can't bring myself to do it. I have no idea what to even say. I don't want to mess it up and cause more unessecary harm. Although, I guess that's what leaving it even longer is doing. I'm just so conflicted.
