Single Parents

telling family?

How did you all tell your family you were about to be a single mother? My situation is a little funky, I posted about it a while ago.

Just a refresher: I was in a very abusive marriage and ran away from XH (he was a military guy). We've been separated for 1 year and I have no idea where he is. During that time I met someone and got pregnant. I'm still with new guy and because of everything that has happened, I don't know how to tell my family. Advice?

Also, I don't talk to most of my family because they are very toxic people. I pretty much just need to know how to tell my immediate family (grandparents included). Thanks!

    My only advice is to wait until you feel ready to deal with any reaction they might have and then be straight forward about it.

    I made the mistake of telling my mom while I was still in shock and it was more awkward than it needed to be. Good luck.
