  • If you freeze up and can't do it, then how do you two normally talk about things?
    And over dinner, somewhere private definitely is best and just straight to the point. If you don't know him well, prepare for him to lash out and blame you, but it's half his fault - know that. If you do know him, then just know that he has a right to know. And it's best you do it sooner than later.
    But if you find you really can't just "say it", then perhaps write it down for yourself, prepare a script, and practice, or even read it to him if you have to.

    • we have been together for 3 years and when we have issues we write it down on the issues pad we have in the bedroom so we know what we have to work on but i think telling him in person is best with this type of news

    • erm thanks i think

  • Get a large box, fill it with pink and blue balloons, and write "I love you (insert his name here)" on the box. Have him open it and watch for his reaction. I hope it's one of excitement.

    • i hope so too but this is an unplanned baby so i am very scared of telling him

  • First congratulations
    Second, if you have been together for 3 years, and are living together, you are practically married. The paperwork doesn't change much.. so having a baby sooner or later is part of the equation...
    Just tell him, if he cares the least about you, he will be supportive..
    Good luck :)

    • i know yay and thank you for being understanding and helping me

    • You are welcome :)

  • I don't understand all the rude and unempathetic, and "jokes" in the comments. Guys/gals that isn't funny she's asking for help about something.

    You should decide in advance when you're going to tell your boyfriend, where you're going to tell him, and what you're going to say. Please just communicate with him. I wish you the best. And congratulations! 💜💜

    There's no way to put it that will make him take it less hard. And you never know, maybe he'll be happy?

    • how did i answer my own question

  • I think you should make it a special announcement rather than just bring it up casually if that's what you were planning on doing. Make it big, its probably your first child? It should be special for the whole family
