hey everyone! I'm new here! I'm 23 and this is my second pregnancy! My son is 4 1/2. My boyfriend and I are excited and a little nervous. I know that I am an adult, but, because I had my son at an early age and that my boyfriend and I are currently living with my Father...I am terrified to tell my parents. My Mother didn't talk to me for 6 months after I told her about being pregnant with my son. I just became really close with her and I am scared of damaging our relationship. Also, I'm terrified to tell my Father because we are living with him in a 2 bedroom house. Obviously I have plans to move out of here with my boyfriend and get our own place, but, it won't be for a least a couple months.

I guess you could say that my real question is...how long is too long to wait? I just don't know when the right and polite time to tell would be. I was thinking of trying to wait until I was out of my Fathers house, but I feel like it would be very rude of me to wait that long. I am going into my 11th week right now.

Any advice??

That is a very personal decision. I would tell them sooner rather than later. They are bound to find out and it's better to hear from you than another way. Good luck and congratulations.

Thanks .:Shortcake:. for my great siggie
