Hi everyone
I just found out today that I am pregnant.
Have been trying for 7 months and finally it's happened.
Am very excited, but know that my extremely Roman Catholic mother
will be less than excited considering I'm not married or even "dating" seriously.
I'm very anxious about when I'll tell them this news and don't want to deal with long lectures. My parents are 75, and my mother has always been emotionally frail. I worry that this will send her over the edge.
Does anyone have any experiences and or advice?

I don't have any advice for you other then the same thing happened to me 10 years ago. Pregnant, no father, my nother very religious.

As it turned out, she got over it very quickly and loves my son to death. She actually helped me alot when he was a baby.

As luck would have it, I'm married now and me an my husband adopted another child a little girl.

You only have one life. Kids are the greatest joy. You CAN'T miss out on that.

Just be the best mom you can be. Hopefully, you can afford to raise a child your own. Other then that -- live your life and enjoy the experence.

-Mary
