6 Tips on Telling Your Boyfriend You’re Pregnant
Having a baby brings mixed emotions to everyone. It can bring joy, shock, disbelief and tears of joy. Well, as to telling your boyfriend about your pregnancy, it depends on whether it is an accidental pregnancy or if you have spoken about and discussed starting a family in the near future. If you are a teen and pregnant, the situation becomes more complicated. Then there is the question of who wants to keep the baby and who doesn’t. You might not want to have a kid at this stage, but he’d love to have a kid and this makes your decision to tell him very difficult. We give you some tips on telling your boyfriend you’re pregnant.
1. It is important that you be calm
Decisions about the pregnancy do not have to be taken immediately. Be calm and absorb the news fully before you tell him.
2. Be prepared to accept his reactions with patience
Depending on your situation, the news can bring happiness or just plain shock. Shock makes people say stupid things. Be mature to deal with his reaction.
3. Don’t blame him
It might have been his decision to not use protection. You went for it too, so don’t blame him alone. Tell him it is a joint responsibility now.
