Im 26 years old just starting to work at a stable hospital as a nurse. My boyfriend and I found out that I was pregnant and at 7 weeks going into 8 recently, and we figured that we let our parents know. We were planning to tell my parents to get married, but since I got pregnant, we thought we may need to let them know as soon as possible. My dad has always took control of the family in making decisions and somewhat conservative in lifestyle approach. Now my mom/dad/big brother(my boyfriends friend) are telling me to get an abortion. My boyfriend and I don't want to get an abortion and continue with the pregnancy and start a new family on our own, but I wanted to get some advice in resolving the conflict that I have with my family. I know that it is going to take time, but I would like some tips and recommendations.. as a new mom and in conflict resolution.
