its sad, brought down the mood. kinda treating us like kids.
now my hubbys fam exact opposite all happy smiles hugs!! maybe its because his family usually has 3 kids and up each?? he has 5 brothers and 4 sisters. big cape verdian family.
but still you think you'd be happy when ur only daughter says im pregnant as long as she can support the kids. just sad about it!

This is our first, but it was still wierd. My family was very supportive and excited but DH's family wasn't as much. They just seemed really reserved about the news. We still haven't really heard much from them and I got the feeling they weren't thrilled. They never seem to ask much about the baby either. Wierd stuff as it's the first grandkid on either side. And I feel the same as you, we planned to get pregnant, are old enough and are financially responsible! What more can you want?
We haven't told them yet, and won't until after I reach 12 weeks. Last time MIL told the entire world she was so excited. My step-mother was kind of cold about it and the m/c, but that is just her way. She was really happy for us.
We are actually think we are not going to "announce" at all - just let them all figure it out when my belly starts getting huge!
I can't believe in this day and age, people still hold to the old adage that one cannot be a good parent and be single. I find it even sadder that families cannot truly be happy for you guys, especially knowing what you guys have been through all ready.
This will be my 6th, and im not telling the parent or his side either.. They will be very upset, his parents will get over it and welcome the baby and so would my mother, but my father will not. he told me if i had anymore he would disown me. I think to my self at times, what am i 12.. really?? So im going to hide it as long as i can.
Both of our familes (and our older kids) are very excited now that we know this baby is a sticky bean. At first they have a bad outlook on any pregnancy. They all assume every pregnancy for us will end in a loss. Once I got to about 8-9weeks they started getting excited.

On 1/31/12 at exactly 16 weeks pregnant Noah came too soon. He was our 7th loss
If you would like to see pictures of my sweet (but tiny) boy they can be viewed at www.caringbridge.org/visit/noahdarrohn they aren't the easiest pictures to look at but I am willing to share them with anyone who would like to see them <3
This is my 4th and my family took it surprisingly well. When I was pg with my 3rd my mother actually asked if it was an accident, cause she couldn't understand that we would want more than 2 kids. But then I got pg again and lost that baby and we've been struggling to get pg again, so when I announced that I was pg with #4 everyone was happy.
Both mine and DH's family are beyond excited. This is our first and it has been a long, hard road to get here so everyone is so happy for us. It is the first grandchild on DH's side and I am the youngest in my family so it is pretty special for my parents as well.
I am now at the stage where I have my mother and MIL checking on me almost daily to make sure I haven't gone into labour, it's very sweet!
