    Default Anxious

    We are telling my parents in a couple hours. I'm quite sure they won'tbe happy, so I am anxious and sad

    despite being happily married and having stable career jobs, they were shocked and not all that happy when we announced DD. It broke my heart and I am still not over it. Now we have to announce another and instead f being happy and excited, I am dreading it.

    I really hope that you are surprised with a reaction of excitement. The way it should be. Every baby is a gift no matter what. i hope it all goes well.

    GL to you telling them. My mom isn't going to be excited at all when we tell her about this one (she thinks I should stop at two) so I'm not looking forward to telling her either.

    Ugh.

    It's sickening that you have to be bummed about such WONDERFUL news!!!

    Personally, if in your shoes, I'd probably never say anything until they asked me.. and I'd respond with "Yup.. I am.. but I didn't care for your reaction with DD and didn't wanna get the same reaction again so I didn't think to tell you."

    Babies are JOYOUS occasions! I reallllllyyyy hope there's a change of tune this time, mama. HUGS!!

    That's my mom too!!! She hasn't been truly happy for a single one of mine!! Yes, she loves them once they are here, but she thinks we had the first one too early, the next one was too close to the first, and all the others, well... I guess they should never have been in her mind!

    Aweeee, I'm so sorry girl. What a way to get your happy joy bubble burst! Why didn't she think you should have DD? It sounds like you have your act together!

    *hugs* I hope it goes better than you expected.

    I'm sorry she's like that. My dad doesn't think we should have #3, but he was semi-happy at least, just incredulous that we'd want more than 2. *sigh*

    I'm so sorry that you have to deal with that. I hope it goes/went alright. We haven't told anyone yet and I'm kind of dreading it.

    I am so sorry you had to go through that. I hope they turn around this time and see how special it is!

    Well, it didn't go all that well at first. We got a lot of lectures about money because we are now going to be a single-income family in one of the most expensive cities in the country...so that is a big decision. Neither of my parents said anything about the pregnancy itself or asked how I was feeling physically and emotionally since they know my last delivery was so difficult. That made me sad. However my mom sent me a very nice email just now so I am feeling quite relieved about it. It's all done now and we don't have to hide it anymore! We told my inlaws after and they were very happy.

    Heather, they weren't initially happy about DD because they thought I was too young (and by extension, they were too young to be grandparents). I was 26 when I had her!!!! Lol. And I think they wanted me to be a career woman...haha.
