I am new to this site, and new to being a pregnant woman. This is my first child, and it was unplanned. My boyfriend of 6 years is in the military and has no idea right now I am pregnant. He is coming to visit in a couple weeks, but I want to break the news possibly over the phone so he has time to let it sink in. I don't know if I should wait until he gets here to tell him. We were not planning on starting that kind of life together for a couple of years, and I am so scared to tell him. Any thoughts on this....?

You could always wait until he comes home to tell him?

Hello and congratulations on your pregnancy.

How far along are you, how long have you and your boyfriend been apart, and when will you next see him?

I think it would be best to tell him face to face, but if you will not see him for a few more weeks it may be kind of late so telling him on the phone wouldn't be such a bad idea.

I hope you stick around and update us when you tell him.
