How To Cope

I feel troubled at times. I found out this June 9, 2020 that I'm pregnant. It's been a few weeks actually that I feel exhausted all the time, I always pee as in! Ang hirap mag hold back at times lalo na when I'm traveling , i feel like my mood changes drastically that I feel anxious about anything. My last period was April 25, 2020. I didn't even bother suspecting that I'm pregnant and when I popped the news towards my man asking him kung kelan namin pwedeng sabihin sa parents namin he's like "parang wala lang" every time I bring it up. He's always like "sige go! Sabihin mo!" in a way na parang Inis na Inis sya. Since I was still in college I feel really troubled kasi my parents are really strict and I'm scared to disappoint them. My man has just graduated and he started a business weeks after he knew the news and right now although it's for us naman, I can't help but feel neglected I mean, kaya nyang mag chat sa ibang babae na friends nya and he couldn't even spare a minute just to check up on me. I just don't know kung sino mapalapitan. I feel so alone enduring all of these. I fell inlove with being pregnant and I'm really really grateful to God. I'm planning to start a business and I feel like, I couldn't rely on my man on this stuff. What should I do😞

Hello there future mommy! I kinda know how it feels to be alone during the first few months of my pregnancy. I was also too scared to tell my parents, because I know they expected much from me. I didn't want to disappoint them. I felt like I had no one to share my feelings with even though my partner was supportive and really encouraged me to open up to him. Feeling ko hindi siya enough, which was wrong kasi siya lang talaga nandyan the whole time. He was also the one to push me to tell my parents. I was crying kasi I know masasaktan ko mom ko but the key is to acknowledge their feelings. Expect the worst nalang but you will be surprised how much your parents love you. My mom was like "I trusted you." When I told her but she also flew from Cebu to come see me here in Manila a week after, offering me all the support and advice that she could. So I think when you are ready, I am praying na sana soon, I hope you can tell your parents already because maybe they are the best support you need during these difficult times. Be strong always!
