The news that you are preg­nant is always a shock, even if you care­ful­ly planned the appear­ance of the baby. Of course, the wom­an’s con­fu­sion pass­es quick­ly — espe­cial­ly if the doc­tor has already con­firmed the good news. After doubts about your sta­tus are dis­pelled, anoth­er ques­tion aris­es — how to tell every­one about your sit­u­a­tion? Of course, you can not say any­thing to unfa­mil­iar peo­ple, but you will def­i­nite­ly have to tell your par­ents, rel­a­tives and future father.

Talk­ing to dad-to-be

He should be the first to report the preg­nan­cy. Your task is sim­ple if you are mar­ried. But do not expect an over­ly roman­tic reac­tion from a man. As a rule, he will stand in con­fu­sion after your words, and you will be upset that your beloved did not show­er you with flow­ers and kiss­es. How­ev­er, do not for­get that a man also needs time to accept this new thought. If you are afraid of your hus­band’s reac­tion, tell him about every­thing in hints — and he will get used to the idea of ​​replen­ish­ment grad­u­al­ly.

You need to inform the man even if you are not mar­ried and are not at all ready for such a turn of events. For him, the news that he is a future dad will, no doubt, be a test — because from now on it is he who must decide whether to part with a sin­gle life, and then — how to feed his future fam­i­ly.

Some women pre­fer to com­mu­ni­cate such impor­tant things by phone — before the meet­ing, the man will think every­thing over and his reac­tion will be obvi­ous. Even if he is not hap­py at first, this does not mean at all that he will not make a good father. So for­get about hasty con­clu­sions.

Par­ents — yours, his

If you live with your par­ents, then mom can find out about your preg­nan­cy with­out words — just from her own expe­ri­ence. As a rule, mom and dad will take the news favor­ably — espe­cial­ly if they are delight­ed with the son-in-law. In addi­tion, preg­nan­cy will bring you clos­er to your moth­er and improve your rela­tion­ship. The reac­tion of par­ents can be unfriend­ly — if they do not like your cho­sen one. How­ev­er, no one forces you to live at the behest of your par­ents, so just polite­ly lis­ten to their opin­ion. After all, both the child and you will get parental love.

You should def­i­nite­ly tell your hus­band’s par­ents — even if you do not have a very good rela­tion­ship with them. By the way, you can gen­er­al­ly entrust this whole con­ver­sa­tion to your hus­band. The moth­er-in-law will give you a lot of advice — treat them with atten­tion, because you can real­ly learn some­thing use­ful.

Close rel­a­tives, friends

There is an opin­ion that a woman should not talk about her preg­nan­cy until a peri­od of three months — until the threat of mis­car­riage becomes min­i­mal. How­ev­er, your life will become easy and pleas­ant as soon as all your loved ones find out about your inter­est­ing sit­u­a­tion. And the baby after birth will not be left with­out atten­tion. Of course, get ready for an abun­dance of advice, but those. giv­en with love and care.

After you tell your friends, your preg­nan­cy will be the top­ic of all con­ver­sa­tions for a long time. Only friends will focus on this, while a hus­band or moth­er will quick­ly get used to this idea.

Can you tell at work?

Col­leagues should not tell this news — oth­er­wise you will plunge head­long into a whirlpool of gos­sip and sto­ries of preg­nan­cy and child­birth, and not always pleas­ant ones. So by your silence you are just pro­tect­ing your­self from unnec­es­sary infor­ma­tion.

But let the man­age­ment know — per­haps they will treat you more loy­al­ly, and besides, they will have time to find a replace­ment for you. In any case, the news of your going on mater­ni­ty leave should not be unex­pect­ed — espe­cial­ly if you plan to return to this place after your vaca­tion.


You don’t need to tell every­one you meet about your preg­nan­cy. Although do not miss the ben­e­fits of your posi­tion — so, they will give you a place in trans­port, and traf­fic police offi­cers may treat you with indul­gence in case of a slight vio­la­tion of the rules. It is clear that it is not worth telling every­one about your sit­u­a­tion, espe­cial­ly since it will become obvi­ous very soon.

So talk­ing about preg­nan­cy is not dif­fi­cult — do it with joy.
