I have been with my partner for almost 10 1/2 years. She is 14 weeks 2 days pregnant with our first child. My parents have been a less than enthusiastic part of my life since my partner and I got together. I see them about twice a month, we talk about very little of substance, and while they seem to like my partner, they tend to pretend she is my friend more than anything else. I have not told them we are expecting a baby yet; I wanted to wait until the first trimester was over. They are not going to be happy at all, and I am facing the distinct possibility that they may choose never to speak to or see me again. I am sending them a letter this week telling them about the baby. On one hand, it may be a huge relief if they decide to never speak to me again, and on the other, I am their only child and it makes me so sad to think that they would choose to let go of me rather than embrace my family. I am a total wreck right now.
