I am having this baby on my own and my parents are Indian, very traditional. This will be a shock and a big dissapointment. So Im waiting until atleast 2nd trimester b/c I feel crappy now and Ill be better in managing their negativeness in 2nd trimester. I know I should do it in person but I kind of feel like a letter might be good? This way I don't have to hear all their negative comments..With time their comments will reduce to half? Im trying to keep in the best spirits possible since the baby feels everything. The father of the baby has been negative towards me and has not been helping. Everything would sound better if I could say " my loving committed BF & I are having this baby together..." but thats not whats happening... I got knocked up by accident from a guy Ive been "seeing" for 10months. Ofcourse this whole time I caught feelings and wanted more but he has diff desires and wants in life. Children is not something he wants. Its so sad, I sent him a pic of the sonogram at 9weeks and said in the text. The baby has a good hearbeat and my due date is Aug 25th, 2 hrs later his repsonse was " I don't want to hear this." I cried all night. I never expected him to react this way. I responded with, " I wont contact you. Take Care. Good Luck."
I just moved to this area so I dont have friends I see in person just over the phone. My parents live in a different State and ofcourse money is tight. I have a good job and make OK money but my CCdebt makes things difficult. Im even considering bankrupcy (which would add to my problems over time).
I know big new should be delivered face to face but they are really going to flip out, BIG TIME...
How should I break this news to them?
