I'm 12 weeks pregnant today, and really need to get round to telling my mum. I'm 24, and have been with my OH for over 2 years, so its a very secure loving relationship. And now we're over the initial surprise, we're both excited and looking forward to being a little family His family all know, and are very excited and supportive. My little brother knows, and didn't really react in anyway (he's only 19, think thats quite typical for a boy haha) However, I need to tell my mum, as my OH's family are arranging a little celebration for us next week, and I want my mum to be there. I am so worried about telling her!! Especially as I also need to tell her that I have dropped out of uni! Any ideas on where to start?? My OH is really on my case to tell her, as his family have known for quite a while, and he doesnt want them to have to lie about when they all found out. I'm in Cardiff and my mum is in Bournemouth, so it has to be over the phone really. I'm going home for the night tomorrow, but will have my friend and his niece with me (we're taking her to paultons park for the day) so can't really break the news in front of him, especially as he doesnt know. Think I'm going to explain leaving it so long, by explaining I wanted to wait until the 12 week mark. Think she's going to be disappointed in me doesnt help that we're having a lot of family problems recently, my dad is terminally ill, and my great grannie had a heart attack on sunday Please, if anyone has any ideas or tips, please help!!
