I'm almost 8 months pregnant and i haven't told anyone besides family and 3 friends that i am pregnant. I plan on waiting till 9 months to announce it on facebook.

I guess i am embarrassed. I know i shouldn't be but it is hard because i know everyone who knew me from school and such wouldn't expect me to be pregnant. I should be in school and on my way to a career like most of my peers. It's just hard for me to admit that i made a "mistake" or failed to meet everyone's expectations..

Is anyone at all dealing with the same situation?


Thank You Sharon for my beautiful siggy!

Yes and no. I have not told my family and I wont for as long as I can. It will be a huge issue that I have young ones, just got a divorce, and am pregnant and not married. HUGE issue. Not to mention I am a high risk pregnancy. So I have to stop school because I need to be able to work with the limited activity I will be allowed. It was not planned and we were using birth control.

*hugs* Keep your chin up. Things happen and normally the worst part is family. If others comment just say you wanted to start your family sooner rather than later.

I haven't told anyone yet besides my DH and the ladies here.
His family is very dramatic and while they will be excited they will be overly so. I kinda feel like I just got them out of my hair about our wedding and I'm just not excited to invite them back in so soon.
I don't have any family but my friends I'm sure will be suportive but only one of them has a child so I'm kinda alone on the whole baby thing.

I've told everybody possible. There isn't a person who doesn't know. . .

I didn't really have a big social circle, so I only told my family. If I was to see someone that I went to school with (before I dropped out, which was also an embarrassment), I wouldn't say anything, or I'd walk the other way. But if I was with my sister, & she knew them as well, then SHE would - she was the big advocater of my pregnancy lol.

Thankfully, I was already out of high school when I found out I was pregnant. I was terrified, I barely let everyone know on facebook about a week ago. I'm at 6 months, and in high school absolutely no one expected me to get pregnant. Actually, in high school, people were starting rumors that I was some floosy, and that I had a baby in secret. Stupid people, but that was one of the main reasons why I kept it a secret. Shame, because I'm 21, and am going to be a single mom come April.

Thanks girls for letting me know i'm not alone. It is my high school classmates and teachers that i think i am most worried about. Even though i graduated years ago (like you miss chryssie), i just don't think anyone expected me to get pregnant this soon. I think everyone expected "big things " from me and hearing about my pregnancy may disappoint some people. I don't want to let anyone down.

But no matter what, it was my choice to have this baby and i don't think anyone could have changed my mind about it. If i end up letting some people down or if they turn their nose up at me, i still don't regret my decision


Thank You Sharon for my beautiful siggy!
