26?!?!? That's not young! BAH! I had my daughter at 34, but it just wasn't the right time sooner, kwim?
This pg wasn't planned, was it? I can't remember. Either way what's done is done and I hate that they are so judgmental of you. UGH! I'm glad your mom later sent a nice email but still.
I'm glad that things are great now. You handled it better than I would have. I mean, you are an adult! They need to treat you like one instead of some teen that got pregnant on accident. Seriously. I'm irritated for you. Babies are a wonderful blessing.

Glad to hear its all over and the news is out there. At least you don't have to be anxious about telling anymore. It always breaks my heart to hear about family, especially parents acting this way with their adult children. I hope i do and crrtainly intend to always treat my adult children (when the time comes) with the dignity and respect they deserve. It is your life and they should respect your decisions.
I'm not telling my boss until he figures it out for this reason. Not that I care what he thinks about it but he doesn't deserve to know any sooner. He's a workaholic who already has trouble with me putting my family first and he certainly doesn't understand wanting more children after, at most, two. I mean why risk having a disabled or Down syndrome baby when you already have two healthy ones? Ugh! I don't get why some people can't understand that everyone is not the same and they don't know what is right for everyone else! Ok, sorry for the rant. I get a little worked up sometimes. Can I blame pregnancy hormones?
Glad it wasn't quite as bad as you expected and your mom sent a nice email. Also nice that the in-laws were excited!

Sounds like it went as well as you could have expected. Hang in there, they will come around
