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.
