Lauren, lots of advice. Again, the things that seem be in the majority's thought are: Tell your parents with bf present, don't do anything you don't want to, tell them early as an adult. My wife was 19 when she got pregnant. She ended up moving in with her dad and stepmom along with her bf. The dad was emphatic that he was not going to have 2 people sleeping together in his house that were not married. So, she and bf got married. She thought, like you do that he had it together. Then, that's when it started. He verbally and physically abused her. She had 4 children total with this guy in a 5 year period. After 5 years, she left and a big court battle ensued. Her parents didn't want to help. I ended up stepping in and walked through this with her. I don't say that to make me look like a hero, but she needed help. Her self-confidence was shot. Now, she is so much better and our lives are great together. We married in 1998 and have been married for 7-1/2 wonderful years. I only say this to again emphasize that people change and you don't know how this guy or you might change with the arrival of the baby and the stresses placed on the both of you. He might never change and stay true to form to what you know now. If so, you've got a great guy! There really isn't anymore I can add to what has been suggested. I think you know what you need to do and the two of you need to discuss how to tell them together. Sooner the better for reasons mentioned in other posts. I like what bean said. Even though the money and support might be there, you need to have an att_tude of self-sufficiency. Always have a plan B. If things go south, you need to know that you will be able to make it.
