Scared To Tell My Grandparents I'm Pregnant

Scared To Tell My Grandparents I'm Pregnant

DEARSUGAR and Distressed Dina need your help. How do you go about telling your grandparents that you've become pregnant by mistake?

Dear Sugar,
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
