I am new to this website and first things first: my fiance and I are having a baby. We are scared but excited at the same time. I am just over whelmed because of the different emotions I am experiencing and I hate getting mad at Chris, my fiance, for little things (sometimes nothing at all). We found out that I was pregnant September 10th. That was a rough day to fin out because my older brother was going through some complications with his ex-girlfriend, whom also had a son, and my mom was/is putting pressure on the two of us. After over a month later, I still haven't came to terms to tell her. When I was about to after spending the weekend with my older sister, she had found out that she was pregnant also. She immediately told our mother which also caused some stress. Once again, my mother expected the best out of me and I just almost started crying, breaking down. I am keeping this secret away from my sister because she had had a miscarriage last October and I feel as if she would hate me and be mad at me if she ever knew. My step brother's girl friend is pregnant and it took Allie, my sister, almost five months to be okay with it. I know I need the proper care. Chris' friend had found a place in a nearby town called Heart Beat that is a completely confidential place and offers most everything for free. If I attend meetings, I will be able to receive baby clothes, maternity clothes, and even a free car seat or crib. I have no idea how to break it to my mother or step father, but Chris and I agreed to try and put it off as long as possible.

Dear Sarah,

Dear Sarah,

I'm so sorry to hear you have so many relationships in your life that you haven't been able share the amazing and important news that you are pregnant. I can tell how important your family is to you, and I encourage you to tell them as soon as you are ready do. Although you may feel the pressure to be the one who everyone expects the best out of, remember your family and the people you are close to care about you and ultimately will want to support you and show you and your baby love!

It sounds like you are already connected with your local pregnancy center, which is a great place to start. If you are not connected with your local center, go to the website http://www.optionline.org and enter your zipcode, or text PREGNANT to 3131. This will give you a list of your local pregnancy centers where you can get support, take classes and even get FREE and CONFIDENTIAL peer counseling on how to tell your family about your pregnancy in an open and courageous way.

Telling your family about your pregnancy may be difficult, but I know you will be able to overcome these complications with your love for your family and your baby.

Feel free to email me if you want to talk more!
