telling the father today...
Sat, 02-27-2010 - 8:42am

I found out I was pregnant two days ago, and today I am going to tell the father. I thought about waiting, but we have a fairly complicated situation, so I figured the more time he has to be shocked, and then deal, the better.

He is not my boyfriend, but we are fairly close friends. He has on on-again, off-again girlfriend who is in the middle of a divorce (she left her husband for him, but now she is wishy washy), my friend has had a crush on him forever, and she doesn't know anything happened between us (he made it clear a very long time ago to her that nothing was ever going to happen with them), and to make it all just a little more interesting, we all work together. I didn't expect to have all this drama at 27. lol

I guess I really don't know how he is going to react. Shocked, maybe angry. The thing is that him and I do have a great friendship, and I am hoping that will get us through this.

I needed to get that all out before I exploded. lol. Thanks for listening.
