So...I am 23. I have a 2 year old. Was not married when I had my son but myself, my son, and his father had a great family life for about a year until we split. Won't go into details with that.
Well my boyfriend and I have been together a year and plan to get married soon. I got pregnant and had a miscarriage in February :( I told my mom about it later and after the sadness and emotion passed a little she had a talk with me about how birth control is 99% effective and of I get pregnant again without being married "she thinks that's just absolutely crazy" she said I do not want to be 23 and have 2 different babies with 2 different men and never been married. She said "I'm better than that" well...obviously not :(
I would like to add that while my boyfriend and I are of course nervous we are super excited and would like to be able to share the excitement with everyone else.
Any ideas on how I should break the news to my mom? So that instead of freaking out immediately she will be excited for me? I know she won't be angry but I think she's going to be upset and sad for me and that's not what I want! I bought a shirt for my son to wear that says "I'm not lion I've got big news" with a lion or course and on the back "I'm going to be a big brother" and would like to use that because she loves my son more than anything and I think involving him will help. I'm not trying to find a cutesy way to tell her just trying to find out what I should say! My nerves are taking over and I need to tell her soon because somehow in already starting to show at 6 weeks!
