For The Guys
So you think she might be pregnant…
and you don’t know what to say or do.
It will be important for you to be open to listening to her as she talks about what she is going through and what she is feeling. She needs you to be supportive and caring. It will also be important for you to talk about how you are feeling. You will have decisions ahead that will need you both to be open, calm, and honest with each other.
Parents are usually able to handle the news better than we expect, and keeping the information a secret from them is almost always more likely to increase your stress. It’s a good idea to talk to someone else that you respect and trust. Even though you will be making your decisions, it’s often helpful to bounce your thoughts off a trusted person. If you are avoiding talking to your parents, unless your situation involves extreme circumstances, it really would be best to share with them.
Getting as much information as possible, and taking time to think through your plans will help you make a decision that you both can live with. Coming to a place like Your First Look will help you get the information you need, as you work through your decision-making process.
