How do I tell my family I am pregnant and Not Married!?

I am 23, just graduated college and 13 weeks pregant. I am in a relationship with the baby's father, and now living with him at his mom's house in Dallas. I am job-searching and he has a decent job, but since the pregnancy was unplanned, we are struggling a bit to save money for the baby (hence living with his mom). The only person that knows about my pregnancy on my side of the family is my mom. We will be driving down to San Antonio about 5 hours away from Dallas, to spend Christmas with my family.

They are very traditional, and now that I'm so close to seeing them, I am getting very anxious and nervous to tell them. I am not as skinny as the last time they saw me although not sure that one could consider me "showing." My mom thinks I should tell the family during Christmas, but I have no idea how I should do it. I am so scared to see their reactions and to be judged by them.. any suggestions, advice, and/or encouraging words would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!!

You can always buy a pair of yellow baby socks and give it to them as a present. If you don't want to tell them in words. That is something I have always wanted to do lOl. If not talk with your boyfriend and see how he wants to tell them. I would tell them sooner then later and risk someone else finding out and getting back to them. Don't be scared hun. Find a way to get on the topic and slowing budge it in there that your pregnant. I hope this somewhat helps. Good luck and let me know how it went.
