Are/were your parent's supportive of your unplanned pregnancy/s?

my first unplanned pregnancy (18) they were not at all happy.......
Next unplanned pregnancy was DD & I was 22, and they were very supportive of me, as they have been about the two since I had DD...

At first my Mom hated the idea of being a Grandma. (She still has younger kids herself. My youngest brother is 13) So she wasnt so sure she was "ready" but once my DD was born it changed completely and she is totally head over heels for my DD.

My mother is like a puppy with a new chew toy.

His mom was really freaked out before but now is all sorts of gung ho.

Thank you MommaDucks for the AMAZING siggy!

I guess I am the minority since I am married but both of our parents were very worried when we announced our suprise pregnancy with DS b/c I had 3 prior m/c. They were supportive but worried.

They were supportive but disappointed when i got pregnant with my daughter. But they were very excited and happy with my son.

Well what happened was I took a pregnancy test on new years eve and it came back negative. I had female problems to begin with (cervical dysplasia) and was thinking something was wrong again that I wasn't having a period. So I scheduled and appointment with the gyno to get a pap exam. About two days before the appointment I took the other pregnancy test that came in the pack for the heck of it and my jaw dropped because it came out positive. I hid the news from my boyfriend and my parents until the day of the appointment. Jason went with me and I wound up blurting the news out to him 15 minutes before the appointment since he was taking forever to get ready to go. Not the best way to break the news, but I wanted to tell him in person instead of over the phone.

My mom knew something was up with me because I had the gyno appointment scheduled. She called me from work and figured out the news herself. She was crying and said we can get through this. I felt like I disappointed her because she really wanted me to finish nursing school. She told me I had my options, but said she would never put me through what her mom did to her. I guess when my mom got pregnant around 18 my grandma made her get an abortion. It still haunts my mom and she regrets it each day of her life. She didn't want me to feel that way. My family has been very supportive. I'm not a teenager and am in a stable relationship. Granted we're not married, but I think we're doing just fine. I'm still going to nursing school and hopefully will graduate next May.
