How To Tell Your Parent’s You’re Pregnant By The Guy They Hate

Telling your parents they are about to become grandparents is usually a joyous occasion, but what happens when you tell your parents the guy they absolutely despise is the father of their grandchild?

There’s usually three reactions you can expect. Some people may experience all three from their parents. Typically though, you’ll get one of these:

  • Disappointment.
  • Anger.
  • Excitement.

Before you blurt out the pregnancy news, you need to develop a game plan. There’s a lot to consider, so let’s take it a step at a time.

Do they know you’re having sex?

If you’re a minor, your parents are going to react a little differently than if you’re 27. This article is taking all of that into consideration. Obviously if you’re living with the guy, they’re going to know there’s something happening, but if they’re 99% sure you’re a virgin, the chances of them being shocked are going to be higher than usual.

Let’s Not Forget That They Understand Commitment

If they hate the guy, let’s add the shock that you’re now bound to that person for the rest of your life as an added anxiety. Parents understand commitment, even if they are divorced. Having kids with a person means you (and your family) will be seeing them around often.

Your parents will probably bring up that they hate him, or want to know why you’d have a baby with him. They may never understand (and maybe you don’t either), but at this point, it’s a moot point.

Selecting a Venue

You’ll know what’s best for you and your parents when it comes to the location and publicity of the info drop. Maybe a nice dinner out would work best. Maybe it’s better if you call a family meeting. Maybe you need to have your Grandma tell them, because she’s Grandma and she’ll have your back.

Think this part through. While it might seem like a small thing, it’s important because the location, people around, etc will set the mood for the reaction.

Your Age Plays a Role

Your age will play a HUGE role in how they react. It doesn’t matter if you’re 27 and rocking an amazing career or in high school. If they hate the guy, you’ll have to understand that EVERY word said is a result of that feeling. If you’re established, they might tell you that you’ve ruined your career. If you are living at home, they might have fears about how they’ll pay for the baby, how they’ll support you, how you’ll get through school and college. The fear is real. Just be aware of that when you break the news. There’s always, always the chance that they will be behind you 4000%.

May is Pregnancy Awareness Month

Did you know that May is Pregnancy Awareness Month?

It’s true! Around a decade ago May was declared Pregnancy Awareness Month. The organization behind it has since gone bust, but we can still celebrate, right? Let’s talk about how you can celebrate with us and join in on the month dedicated to those of us with bumps.

Join A Pregnancy Community

You can celebrate your pregnancy by joining a group of mamas going through pregnancy right along side you. It’s a great way to connect with others who are feeling and experiencing the same thing as you.

Here’s a few we recommend:

  • I Heart Pregnancy on Facebook
  • Nub Theory Guesses  Facebook Group

Prepare Your Announcement

If you haven’t announced already, now is an amazing time so long as you’re ready. We have found SO many pregnancy announcements we love on Etsy. We also have some amazing Pinterest boards here that are chalked full of great ideas.

Announcing your pregnancy can be as simple as telling family and friends or as fun as leading them on a scavenge hunt. Let’s not forget all of the fun and creative ideas for announcing your pregnancy.

This is still one of my all-time favorites:

Plan Your Party

If you or your family is excited to get your party on, there are so many options.

  • Have a gender reveal party.
  • Have one (or many) baby showers.
  • Host a moms night out.

Find a Photographer

Maternity photographers are SO important. Incase you haven’t noticed, we’re kind of obsessed with maternity photography. We like to share a lot of poses, styles, trends and viral photographers because there are so many creative ideas out there – and they get better every day.

If you’re wondering if you should hire a pro, I’m just sayin’….

Finally, Pregnancy Awareness Month was all about celebrating your pregnancy and that’s what we’re here to do. We only get a chance to experience pregnancy for a limited time in our lives. Let’s make it so amazingly awesome and full of memories that we can cherish them for the rest of our lives.
