  • I assume it's your insurance policy that's covering you? If so, you just call them up and change billing addresses. If it is not your policy then you can't do anything about it.

    I would tell your family now. Just come right out and say it. Is it really going to make a difference in their reaction whether you live there or not? I think you might find they will be very supportive after all. May take a few weeks to cope with the news but in the end they will all be okay.

  • Agree with the above poster. Tell your family now, their reaction is not going to be any different, aside from the fact that they will be more hurt that you did not tell them sooner (that includes your grandparents - What I did when I told mine was I asked them how they would like to be Great-Grandparents)
    As far as the insurance is concerned, the PP is correct, you can not do anything if it is not YOUR insurance, that is to say, if you are covered under your parents insurance. If you are THAT terribly concerned about it, you can go and get your own Medi-Cal that will cover the pregnancy costs.

  • Get a post office box and have all your mail sent there now, that way there will be less to do when you're actually moving. Tell everyone right after you graduate unless the baby is coming first. If the baby comes first tell them when you start to show, it will seem inevitable and alot of the crap you'll get will be shortened. Good luck on starting your life.
