  • I would start off with telling the boyfriend first. Just take a deep breath and tell him. Then together go and tell the family.

  • I always tell my siblings first because they are always gonna support me. I usually wait till about 15 weeks to tell mom and dad. I say. mom, Your gonna be a grandma! (again!) Good luck, it takes a lot of courage.

  • My boyfriend knew right off hand because he bought me the pregnancy test. My mom didn't know until I was about 15 weeks or so because I had a miscarriage before and I wanted to wait until I most likely wasn't going to have another one...

  • My first instinct was to call my bf and just tell him. I would suggest just sitting him down and tell him as soon as you can.

  • def tell the boyfriend first so he has time for it to "sink in" talk about it and make sure he tells you how he feels. then you guys can tell you families together, and dicouse how you want to tell them.. some people make cakes that say grammy and grampa on them or a pacifier or somthing like that.... if you dont know how to tell the boyfriend, sit down with him and hand him the test.... you might not need to say anything.. if you havd your man the test he doesnt have to know how to read it, just by giving it to him he will know. good luck!
