Hello all,

I'm Joanna, 27 from MA. I am currently expecting my first baby on or around September 19th. This baby was a very big surprise and I don't think its quite yet sunken in fully. I have a serious boyfriend who is very supportive and is getting more and more excited about the baby. The hard part of this all, asides from me suffering my m/s so bad is that I'm really scared. I'm having a hard time getting excited and this thinking really bothers me because I've always wanted to be a mom.

Also I'm starting a new teaching job on Monday and I'm not quite sure when to tell them. I don't want people to look down on me. I feel that I'm not married and thats a bad influence on the kids and parents will talk, etc. Overall, I'm just wondering if I can really do this.

Any support would be greatly appreciated.

thanks for the welcome! I'm just north of Boston, where are you?

the thing that worries me is that I have seen the heartbeat on u/s and I did get teary eyed, but I'm still so worried.

Well if your just starting the job there is no reason that they need or even have to know for that matter that you and your boyfriend are not maried. Like already mentioned there are plenty of parents that are not married. Im sure that at least one of your new students there parents had them while they were dating. What grade will you be teaching? I doubt that the kids will even think to say oh my she isnt married, i think that is the last thing on there minds. If the parents look down on you well then shame on them there is nothing wrong with having a child with someone when your not married. It has become more and more common. I myself am 19 and pregnant with my little surprise. I was worried that i would be looked down on by my parents coworkers and such. But honestly once they found out i got no rude comments like your so young or but your not married or any other uncomfortable rude questions like that. Just about everyone congradulated me and it made me feel so happy that no one thought differently of me because i am having a child with my boyfriend many of them were excited and cant wait to see the baby. Yes our situations are completely different but rember that many of these coworkers are parents themself and a few of them have had children before they married. Well i hope this helps a little bit true there will be the ocasional person that disaproves of having children while not married but i dont think they will go to the point of looking down on you.
CONGRADULATIONS!!!!!!

Thanks Maren! I appreciate your understanding. I will be teaching 2nd grade. Sometimes you just never know what will come out of children's mouths. I'm also afraid to tell the principal. I plan to wait till I'm really showing, but still.

I'll keep you posted and congrats on your baby too.
