    I said to my Mum "what do you prefer, Nanna or Grandma? " she respond with "you're not pregnant are you?" it wasn't a planned pregnancy so I don't think either of us knew what to say. It wasn't a joyous occasion to tell the truth.. But of course they love DS to death now (he's 5 in Nov)

    My mouth truly gaped reading that

    I just had regular excited reactions. Especially second time around cause first one was a miscarriage.

(She knows because she has been through the adoption process to adopt my brother at birth.) So she was a b!tch about it. She kept asking what am I going to do. She b!tched to her friends. She made it VERY clear how upset she was. DP mother was shocked but more understanding. My dad disowned me completely and said some really discusting harsh things about me.

    DD2 everyone was happy and excited.

    No one went crazy and jumped all over the place or bit me though lol.
    Im sorry that your first announcement didn't go so well for you but i'm glad you had at least a little bit of support from your dp's mum. Did your mum start to come around when DD1 was born?

    I can jump around and get excited for dd1 if you like? 33 week bump and all
    on DD1!!!

    Ive never had anyone excited about my pregnancies besides me. I was young and everyone hated my fiance at the time so it was all 'oh's' and things never excited. Of course they all love my kiddies now I guess i just would have liked some happy omg's and crying.

    My mum came around to the idea of dd1 when I was about 20weeks in. But she got much more excited towards the end and became alot more helpful.

    hehe yay dd1 feeling the excitement lol

    My DF's grandmother replied with "But you're aborting it though, aren't you?"

    Needless to say I don't speak nicely to this woman when I do *have* to speak to her

    I'm glad they love your DS to death now, i'm sorry you didn't get the happy reaction for him though, my in laws weren't too impressed with out first pregnancy either we were not not trying and didn't expect to fall right away.... there was a lot of awkward silence after we told them, but that pregnancy ended in missed m/c.

    Like angewah i'm a little bit stunned at that reaction I would have totally lost it if someone said that to me, and just to be spiteful I wouldn't tell them when she's born either.

    sorry for your loss. I lost my first pregnancy too. I was so scared to tell anyone about this one, but we got a good strong hb at our dating scan at 5w6d so we told immediate family who were all over the moon for us following our loss.

    She was born by that stage, but I haven't spoken to my dad since. He hasn't even met her, lucky for DD2

    My nana called me a stupid girl and asked if I was pregnant to 'that idiot you married'. Broke my heart.

    Then she told me DS's name was stupid and I would regret it when he hates me for choosing it.

    One of my old bosses text me and literally called me a f***ing idiot and that I was ruining my life.
    My stepmum was concerned we weren't married but other than that everyone was excited.
    That relationship didn't last and he has nothing to do with them.

    Second time around everyone has been very excited, MIL screamed lol.
