My partner and I fell pregnant after just four months – you helped reassure us

DEAR DEIDRE: I was in a right panic when I wrote to you. I’d been with my partner for four months, and suddenly I was pregnant with this child. 

It’s not like we weren’t being careful – I was on the pill.

No issue is too small, too large or too embarrassing. Read our personal replies here.

But I’d started feeling sick all the time, and a quick Clear Blue test revealed I was two weeks pregnant. 

I’m 25, my partner’s 29 and we met on Hinge. 

I’d just got out of a pretty awful long-term relationship – my ex regularly put me down and controlled everything – from my bank balance to the clothes I wore. 

So I had planned on dipping my toe in the dating pool again. 

But then I met my partner. Everything was going well until I found out that I was expecting. 

I was scared to tell him as it was so early on in our relationship – what if it was all too much for him? 

But you told me to be honest, which I was. Luckily, my partner was thrilled.

Now we’re happier and stronger than ever.

DEIDRE SAYS: Honesty was certainly the best policy here – you needed your partner to know the full story in order to help make your own decision. 

I’m so glad it all worked out for you.
