I'm a little pissed at the people in my life! This pregnancy is sooooo unplanned and I even still have an appt. at the termination clinic on Thursday (although I completely intend on keeping the baby). I told FOB that I would go, so I'm going. But I absolutely hate that when I've told people (just those really close to me) the all say "OMG, Heather, are you okay? What are you going to do?". Not one person has said congratulations or even sounded a wee bit happy. I understand how my life looks on paper, I really do, but everyone I've told knows that I'm a mom...that's what I wanted to be when I "grew up". Now I feel weird telling people that I'm keeping the baby, I feel like I'm really young again. No offence at all to the young girls who are pregnant at all, but once you have 2 kids and you're a month from being 33 years old you would think that the stereotypes of the unplanned pregnancy would take a backseat.

Ugh. Thanks for reading.

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

oh and p.s.- I may only be 21, but I'm married.. (and have been since way before I was pregnant with Libby).. and people still gave me the response..

plus on top of that I get all of the really dirty stares from old women that don't bother to look at my ring finger

And now.. apparently.. known by me only since 6:40 this evening.. I'm pregnant again. I KNOW my parents won't be giving me the "yay" response I wish they would. -sigh-

Thanks for the hugs Michelle, I needed them today!

LOL, thanks Jax and congratulations to you again too! I was married when I was 20, I remember people giving me looks about that too. Geez, you can't win. Either you're too old or you're too young. People should just shut up and smile politely if they can't say anything nice.

CONGRATS and I TOTALLY know what you mean....i finally changed up how i told people...instead of saying "i'm pregnant" i'd say "i'm having a baby" and they'd automatically assume i was keeping it...made things easier!!!

wow... I know what you mean.... I'm 20 years old, unmarried and prego myself, so those looks from the older women really sting..... and their comments aren't so friendly either.... it really makes me upset, and sometimes, I'll admit, it was hard to hold my peace and not say anything back to them, but I'm getting better, or at least, its getting better now that I'm almost done.... I really hope things get better for you.... *hugs...* and congrats....
