I'm 20 years old, and recently moved in with my boyfriend's family an hour and a half away from where my family lives. I just found out last week that I'm around 6 weeks pregnant, and I'm really worried about what they will say.
I haven't seen them in more than a month, and I haven't talked to my mom in almost two weeks. The only member of my family I talk to is my father, and that's only really through text message.
Last year I got pregnant with the same boy that I'm with now, and they pretty much disowned me, and tried to force me to get an abortion. The only reason I did was because I was on several kinds of antibiotics and painkillers for a bad Urinary Tract Infection, and I was worried for the baby's health. However, now I've been taking the proper prenatal vitamins and getting extra folic acid, and eating as well as I can, as I'm experiencing some pretty nasty morning (all day) sickness.
My boyfriend and I are extremely excited, and his family is being very supportive. I want to know what you all think. Should I tell my family, or will that only cause additional stress?
Thank you! :)
