For those of you who don't know, I just found out that I am pregnant due in May. Me and my fiance are not married yet. I have another child, not with my fiance, but me and her father weren't married at the time. My parents were furious when I told them about my first child. Mainly it was because I was not married but there were several other reasons they did not approve. The father was a child and still is. He did not treat me right, actually he abused me physically while I was pregnant. My parents hated him from the start of our 6 year relationship. My current man is totally different. He treats me and my daughter good. He treats her like she is his own. The only bad thing about him is that he doesn't have a job right now. He is looking but with this economy, it is hard. He has a few prospects but nothing set in stone. I have a job but my boss isn't making much money so he can't pay me every week. I am also looking for another job. I would just like to know if any of you have any suggestions on how I should tell my parents about the new baby. I know they are going to be a little mad, there is no getting around that, but I would like it to go as smoothly as possible. Thanks for your help in advance.
