DEARSUGAR and Distressed Dina need your help. How do you go about telling your grandparents that you've become pregnant by mistake?
My boyfriend and I have been together for three years and he proposed to me in June. I just found out that I am pregnant and my boyfriend is the only one that knows about it. He is very excited, however we are both currently living at my grandparent's house until we find a place of our own.
Tomorrow I have an old time scheduled doctor's appointment for my yearly checkup which my grandmother made for me. I was supposed to go and get a birth control prescription. Rather than coming home with birth control, I am faced with having to tell them that I'm pregnant. I'm pretty petrified of their reaction.
I am not sure how to break this kind of news to them. They look at me as their little baby who has never done anything to hurt them or disappoint them. I am scared to death that they are going to frown upon this news.
My boyfriend said that we should tell them together and I agree. I am really grateful that he's been so supportive about this. Does anyone have any ideas how should I can start this conversation? I feel like I don't have anyone to talk to about this besides my fiance. Distressed Dina
