Hi, how can I tell my b/f am pregnant when we broke up?
JA: How many weeks are you? What are all the medications you're using?
Customer: I am 4 weeks
JA: Got it. Are you taking any vitamins? How frequently per week do you exercise?
Customer: I walk once or twice a week and am taking folic acid 400ug and vitamin C
JA: Thank you so much for your time. Finally, is there anything else in your medical history you think the Doctor should know?
Customer: I am seeing my doctor on Friday for the first time about this pregnancy

Good evening, I am Dr Ruff, thank you for contacting us this evening.

I am sorry that you are in a difficult situation however this is a little different as this is not a medical question as such.

I would however suggest that indeed it would be correct to tell the father of your child, however if you are only 4 weeks, this is very early, and therefore it may be more appropriate to wait until you have your first scan. But this is only a suggestion and one you need to decide upon yourself sorry.

Ok, am just concerned about his reaction if I keep it longer. He is a bit temperamental but most times keeps silent.

How many times can I ask questions on this topic? is there a time scale or is it this one question I have asked that costs £5.00?

I see, I can understand your difficulty with this.

You can continue asking questions but it should really be in relation to this topic, i.e. your pregnancy

No I cannot call as I cannot afford it right now

Sorry, the phone call is automatically offered, messaging like this is fine if you are okay to continue.

am okay to continue. I am just in a dilema can a doctor break the news to him rather than me?

Okay great, I am afraid not, however I do think it would not come across very well if someone with no link to your ex partner to inform them of this news.

Ok thank you. Any advise rather than waiting for the first ante natal scan?

That is my pleasure. I would advise you sit on this for a few weeks and see how you feel. You will know what to do when the time comes.
