Our families couldn't be happier, and are super helpful. My MIL is actually taking to my appt on Monday because DH has to work. It's over an hour away, and she will have to watch Wes for me during the appt. Everyone is really excited I am having a girl. She will be the first granddaughter on both sides.

This is an old post but a good question.

My family is so so. Now that I am almost done they are all excited but really they didn't think we should have anymore.
My Dr office is amazing and has helped me get through this like I couldn't believe. My friends have been great too.

Thanks .:Shortcake:. for my great siggie

My family is very supportive. I haven't picked an obgyn yet, so the jury is out on that one.

Most of my family (1 sibling couldn't care less). My parents just about pee themselves whenever they see my belly.

My chiropractor, my midwives, all the medical people around me are extremely happy and helpful.

Friends are definitely happy. It seems like everyone has been waiting for years for this to happen for us.

Thank you *kiliki* for my beautiful siggy!

My family and DH's family are all very supportive. I told my little brother yesterday and he was SOOOO excited!! My medical team is so great. The doctor who delivered Liam will be my doctor again. When I was in the hospital in Feb, all my nurses were so sad for me and they all said "we cant wait to see you next time at 9 months (instead of 5 months...)" so I'm really looking forward to the delivery so I can see them again and have a happy ending. Hopefully...

Yep, everyone was happy and supportive. Funny, we got more criticism about the pregnancy we DIDN'T PLAN (Patrick) than this one that we did. I just wanted to smack some people when they opened their mouths after we told people I was pregnant with Patrick, because I wasn't at all prepared and was really struggling about not being happy about it. And then people were basically telling me it was stupid for me to have gotten pregnant when Erin was only a year old...and I just wanted to scream.

But this time, everyone just seemed happy.

My mom.... well that is a long drawn out drama story. Yuck!

My brother is happy. I have not spoken to my sister about it. We have never been really close but in a way I feel guilty as she went through full early menopause before age 30 and I know it hurts her deeply that she will never have children. I am sure she is feeling jealous and hurtful that here I am at 42 on baby #4 and she will never experience this.

My husbands family is so excited!! Everyone is thrilled - All his Aunts/Uncles and Cousins are so happy for us.

And our friends.... Lets say they have been celebrating for some time now.

I am grateful that I am getting great medical care. It is in a fantastic clinic and although I have not formed a personal relationship with the doctors (I see different ones all the time) they always seem to care about how me and the baby are doing.

Phew... that was a book!
