Wondering what your next step is after telling your partner about your pregnancy? An unplanned pregnancy can cause everyone to feel overwhelmed and unsure. That’s why it’s important not to rush into a decision. Remember, this is your story, life, and decision.
How Do I Feel?
One thing you should think about is how you feel. What emotions are you experiencing? Some women experience a mix of both apprehension and excitement as they explore this new possibility. Feeling nervous is extremely common and very normal.
There are no “wrong” emotions to experience. However, it’s essential not to rush into a decision you don’t feel confident in or may regret. Taking the time to consider your options and your feelings are important steps.
Who Should I Tell?
Reaching out to tell someone you trust and feel secure in telling about your pregnancy will help you sift through your feelings. This person should make you feel comfortable and not as if one option is “right” and one is “wrong.” Instead, they should leave this decision to you, allow you to fully express yourself, and provide you with helpful and supportive feedback.
No one should make you feel guilty or ask you to bury your feelings. After all, this is your life, health, and journey. You get to decide how to proceed forward in a way that makes you feel confident and at peace.
