Excited but I think worried and a little cautious (after 3 miscarriages I can't blame them... I felt the same way!). DH's mom acted the weirdest. I think we told her at 11 weeks because my mom spilled the beans to everyone else on my side of the family and we didn't want her to be the only one not to know. She acted like it was waaaaay to early to have told her. That kind of upset me since it was a few weeks past our losses. Oh well. They are all very excited now

They were very excited (both mine and DH's family). There was lots of screaming and crying going on.

They were waiting to hear that we were pregnant again, but more so waiting to hear that it was a sticky bean this time They were all happy

My family was very happy! However, DH's was fairly cool....in fact they still are. I'm not sure what that's about. Maybe they are still nervous for us?

Mine have all been fairly supportive. I can't say with this being number 7 that anyone was really "excited", but nobody was negative and everyone was happy for us so I'll take it.
