I'm from a very religious family and I can't say I've always done what they would approve of. I am 18, and they know that I have been sexually active, but I had stopped and decided I wanted to go to a religious university in the fall. A little over a month ago I moved in with my grandparents about 8 hours away from home, and right before I moved I spent the day with my boyfriend and well...yeah. We did use birth control, two forms, but both failed and I just found out that I'm pregnant! At first I was scared and upset, but now I'm so excited and I'm so in love with the baby, even though I'm only about 6 weeks along. The problem now though is that soon I'm gonna need to visit a doctor and make sure everything is going okay, and eventually I need to tell my parents that because I'm pregnant I can't go to the college I was planning on. I just have no idea how to do this, and i'm terrified. Has anyone been in a similar situation? Has anyone ever had to break the news to their parents? Please help!
