Absolutely. This is my first with my SO, and I am so sure everyone will feel like it's their personal duty to tell me that I haven't waited long enough.

I've only told my best friend, and won't be telling anyone else until I'm feeling more positive that I will get a sticky bean!

You know my story.
We won't be telling anyone until the baby is born.

Our family is... how shall I say? Somewhat less than supportive of us having a lot of kids. We live too far away for them to be a regular part of our lives, so they will probably manage to sound happy for us over the phone and then talk about us behind our backs. I'm cool with that but it still makes the announcement awkward.

I'm also nervous about telling my bosses- both jobs are relatively new.

We're only nervous to tell DH's family. He's still in school, we both have crappy jobs, we're on Medicaid and likely will be getting food assistance as well. His family is super conservative and republican and they're LOADED, so I feel like trash to them because I didn't finish college and we haven't done everything the "right" way. But if we waited until we were squarely on our feet, our kids would be like ten years apart in age and I wouldn't want to start the whole baby thing over at that point. We'll see how it goes...

I'm nervous to tell my family, even though everyone is very supportive, I'm worried about a miscarriage so I'm waiting. My SO told almost everyone in his family already because of our situation, they are not being supportive at all. They're being rude and just not at all what we need right now, so I wish he hadn't. Oh well, though. I'll be telling the rest of my family (my mother, father, and stepfather know) around thanksgiving or a little after. I haven't even told my best friend yet because I know she'd be heartbroken if I had a MC.

My ds is five months and everyone was really surprised lol. We are pretty close in due dates...maybe you can share my difficulties of caring for a young baby and dealing with the first trimester...its already tough!

This pregnancy was a huge surprise, but I am terrified. I know some will have some not nice things to say.

I didn't exactly get pregnant under the best of circumstances. My grandmother (who I live with due to being a single mom to a 3 year old, going to school and working) knew before I did and it was only after her saying a few things that the idea of being pregnant occured to me. When I tested, I was terrified and of course she was the first person I called. She told me she already knew and felt like it was a meant to be kind of thing and that we would get thru it. After that, I told my mom, my grandfather and my sister. My niece and my son know and my younger cousin that lives with us. I work in a gas station so telling the people I work with was inevitable because of the lifting aspect of it. Although my situation isn't the greatest (notice I said I was a single mother) everyone has been extremely supportive. I am 27, my son will be 4 when this little one comes, while I do receive welfare at this point I am doing what I need to for that to be a short term situation. I will graduate college shortly after this one is born and will go on to give my children the life they deserve. The way I am looking at this situation is that it happened for a reason and God (this is my religion and while I don't intend to force that on anyone or offend anyone it is my belief) is giving me this blessing for a reason! I don't hide it and while I have had 2 miscarriages in the past I feel extremely confident when it comes to carrying this child. Others can have their opinion. It's my life and I'm living it so I am going to be happy and excited and enjoy this pregnancy and this child just as I did with my son. I have to support I need from the family I am closest too and that's all that matters to me. I wish all you ladies with any fear to tell the best of luck. Babies are blessings!! And always know if you have nobody else to be excited for you or with you, all of us other ladies due in June at JustMommies will be there for you!!!

I know thats how I should feel Carrie, but like a lot of things in my life I worry way too much about what other people think.

Dont worry I dont feel that way yet either. Everyone should love every baby and be equally as happy whether it is #1 or #10... and as the mom is breaks your heart...

Yes I am a bit nervous. I think you read my other post. I think they will all be happy, but there will definitely be an initial shock because everyone has assumed we are done (although we never said anything to that effect).

Dont you just love have people assume once you have x amount of kids you should be done or you are done without even asking you? So annoying.

Hi ladies, I am new to the board and I look fwd to "chating" with all of you.

I am nervous, I have told both my parents, my best friend, and thats it. my husband has not told his mother and father yet because he is in the process of getting a new job and wants to make sure thats secure. we already have two kids (6 and 8 yrs) and money is a bit tight, I think it will all work out tho. still a bit nervous...
