    I wasn’t nervous at all. It’s kind of a given that if you are married, you are likely having sex and having sex leads to many a pregnancy. So, none of that was a surprise to my parents.

    I chose “it wasn’t a big deal” because I wasn’t nervous, but obviously the news made it a big deal in a good way. I have a super supportive and loving family and I’d want them to be there if anything went wrong. I ended up telling them when I was about 5 weeks pregnant because it was my mother’s birthday and all she’s wanted for a long time is grandkids. Now I’m at almost 29 weeks.

    I feel like awkward comments are bound to happen around pregnancy. My dad occasionally makes comments that are incredibly awkward but they’re funny, so we laugh it off. He’s probably one of the only people that can make comments about how gigantic I’ve seem to have gotten overnight and get away with it.

    we’re telling my parents next weekend and i’m nervous (like you mentioned) b/c of the risk of miscarriage and b/c we won’t have had an ultrasound/doctors visit until a few days after.  i’m not worried about my parents knowing we had sex lol. i mean…..obviously.

    We were nervous because it was so soon after our wedding (honeymoon baby), and it wasn’t planned. They were both excited for us though 🙂

    @beetee123:  my whole family is just super awkward when it comes to anything like this (especially my dad). My younger sister even said to me, “even though you live with SO I like to imagine that you will be a virgin for life.” 

    LOL! This sounds exactly like something that would happen in my family.  I think my parents think me and FI are just going to be like platonic friends who live together forever. I know when that time comes for me, it will be awkward most definetely-its like an indirect admission to having sex…which shouldnt be awkward, but then again, you don’t know my parents….-_-

    We were nervous because it was soon after the wedding (wedding night baby)… So I really didn’t know what they’d say. They were both happy though.

    @beetee123:  I’m not pregnant either but FI and I worry abut this. Obvouly sex is natural and its needed (in most cases) to make babies…….sometimes I see/hear something and then im like “ewww i just pictured what the couple must look like having sex”……so my fear of being pregnant is that someone is going to be like “ewwww those too probably had some UGLY sex” and I realy dont want friends/family having to picture us having sex LOL it sounds childish and I know its a stupid fear but I have it.

    @beetee123:  I’m not pregnant yet. But I’m terrified to tell my father when it happens. Everyone else will be easy. But not him. He’s not ready to be a grandfather. I’ll be 31 in a few months but, to him, I’m his little girl. My stepmother, on the other hand, is dying to have grandbabies.
