So most of you know how well my mom took the news that we are expecting #3 (she still isnt talking to me unless its about my boys) well I called my grandma today (moms mom) and was thanking her for the Christmas gifts she sent that we just received today and I told her the news. Went about as well as it did with my mom. She didnt yell at me like my mom did but she was disappointed and her reply was "Well......if thats what you want". I have decided that I am tired of all the negative responses to MY decision to have another baby. Its MY life, I am married, I have a good job, my husband has a good job, we have our own place and I am an adult. I am guessing my mom had already got to my grandma and told her about the pregnancy because she did not sound surprised but if she didnt get to her first then it just goes to show how negative my whole family is. From now on I am not telling anyone in my family. I dont care if they find out or not. All this negative attitude towards this pregnancy is starting to get to me. I get more support from my friends and some coworkers then my own family is giving me. I want to just tell them all to go **** themselves and never talk to them again. Sorry I just had to vent.
I'm so sorry your family is not supportive.. In my eyes you are an adult and they have no say in anything you chose to do with your life so if they dont have anything nice to say they should shut it. I would be pissed too and probably wouldnt even talk to them but thats me. I'm glad you got supportive people outside of your family who support you and are happy for you. We all are too.

I'm also with Kim on this, if you dont surround yourself with a positive support system your going to always feel sad and depressed and thats not good for baby. I've already cut out family members that show no support whatsoever. If they can't support you, then they shouldnt be worthy of being around you.

My manbeast isnt even telling his family at all, and I have been forbidden to tell either. He says they will know when they find the time to come see us or allow us to go see them. I am hoping he will change his mind before August but he's a stubborn man.

I'm so sorry . We aren't telling my in laws for fear of negativity too....last time we were pregnant before we lost it his dad said " now you wont get a boat" and "son, these things happen" My dh was like dad we were trying ....were married adults and its been a long time coming it didn't "just" happen... I'm really not wanting to tell them this round
Its so crazy to me how the people who are supposed to be most supportive of you can be the most negative. I am so sorry your family is being that way. I have learned that family are the ones who are there for you not necessarily the ones who are related to you.
