congratulations on your little girl
Congratulations on your very wanted bubba
was she supportive after awhile? that's such let down of a reaction for something news that is so exciting!
I found out when ex and i had just broken up 2 weeks earlier. I told my mum while i was in tears. She was excited at the thought of being a 'nanna' then went into support mode as my relationship just ended and we didnt know if we were going to get back together.
ExDP and FOB told me his parents were as excited as they could have been considering the situation as they thought we were 'meant to be'
Both of mine and ExDPs family is apart of DSs life and adore him to pieces.
The first two people i told besided dh was my sister who i rang and her reaction was "u do realise you are going to be pushing a human head out of your vagina?..."
And my mum, who was out grocery shopping at the time i called her. This was her reaction:
Me: "i'm 99% sure ......."
Mum: "you got the job?!"
Me: "....im pregnant!...."
Mum: "....*silence*.......hang on i have to sit down, im out shopping.....ok, now say that again?...."
Me: "im gonna have a baby!"
Mum: "I cant think right now, i'll have to call you back when i get home..."
30mis later....mum calls me back.
Mum: "oh my god i forgot half the shopping, i just couldnt think about anything so i came home to ring you......what...how....but.....Oh darling im so happy!"
1st one we lost they thought was eptopic so cut me open for no reason so that was hard.
with DS DP's mother said, so what are you going to do? i said with what she said with the baby, i said keep it, what you expect me to do. she eventually got over it and loves him.
DD. DPs mother had bout the same reaction. but i was preg the same time as DPs sister and they had tried for 6 mnths and only just conceived and everyone was way more excited about that.
im dreading the next time (we are ttc again) DPs family hate me now (we separated and got back together) my family, well mum will be happy, dad will prob worry, my sister would react like above, but it will be a csection lol
