First off, my boyfriend and i haven't been together for very long(We've known each other for almost a year) and we are long distance.
I went through a divorce, later, i got together with my current boyfriend. I moved from California to Utah(He lives in Nebraska) to be with family and to get away from my ex husband.
For his birthday, i decided to pay for him to take a trip down here to see me because i saw him only three months before. Everything went so well, i couldn't be happier with him. Of course, we had sex but took the proper steps to not get pregnant, mostly because i have two young boys and the fact that we had a plan to have a life with each other and that didn't evolve a baby for a few year and after marriage. I took a Plan B pill just in case. Before he left(He was here for two weeks), i caught the flu and got really sick. After that, i still felt tired, nauseated, and got headaches. We found out that there was side effects to the pills that mimic pregnancy, so i wrote it off. After two weeks of that, we started getting scared, but once again tried to write it off, until i missed my period. I took a test and hey, i'm pregnant!
This isn't what we planned, but he assured me that everything would be okay and that no matter what, he will love me always. He is currently trying to set up a new house so i can move up there with him. Unfortunately, because we aren't married or even engaged, our families wouldn't like the idea of us having a baby right now, even though we are adults. It's hard to deal with being pregnant on my own and not being able to tell anyone yet(We are going to wait until we move in together next month and just tell a white lie about the baby being a month early). I wish i could confide in someone about this and have someone support me besides my wonderful boyfriend and most of all, i don't want to keep lying about covering up my symptoms.
I also, worry about him not being happy about this, even though he said he's pretty excited. I guess i just don't know how men deal with this thing.
Yes, i'm a firm believer everything happens for a reason. I was in a similar situation to you, we told people the truth, we didn't care what people thought... I think your pregnancy, it was meant to be. And I agree, join a DDC. Enjoy your pregnancy! Congrats
