When did you tell your parents you were expecting, and how long did you wait to tell them?
I was living with my boyfriend at the time, and my parents were out of the country so I never saw them and they couldn't see my baby belly! I didn't tell them until I was 7 months along, two weeks before they came home. They were upset at me for not telling me sooner but I was sooo scared! (My dad is Middle Eastern, you know..the whole, no sex until you're married, NO BOYS Muslim idea)
Also, how did they take it?
My mom was pretty cool about it, just upset that I didn't tell her and that it wasn't a good time (I was supposed to start school in a couple of weeks, but had to push it back). It was a hurdle for her to tell my Dad but he was generally excited to be a grandfather.
