DEAR DR. JENN,
My boyfriend and I also have now been sheltering in place??¦ mostly horizontally. I was thinking we had been careful, but evidently we had beenn’t careful enough. Whenever my home maternity test turned up two red lines, I almost dropped over. I enjoy my partner and then we’ve mentioned wanting children ultimately, however in a theoretical, someday style of means, so I’m actually uncertain just exactly how he will respond to the news headlines. I am concerned he shall spiral, or resent me personally. Just how can we simply tell him? ??”Tongue-Tied
There isn’t any right or wrong solution to inform someone in regards to a maternity. (Well, maybe a couple of incorrect methods.) But breaking the news headlines as soon as the maternity was unplanned could be specially anxiety-provoking.
