    Mine were, but I was in an abusive relationship. They were worried sick that this was going to make it harder for me to leave and move on with my life, which was true.

    They were disappointed only out of love and concern for me and the future potential life. They now adore him and I'm often in big trouble if I don't take him regularly for visits and sleepovers

    My parents were disappointed when we got engaged. Dad left our wedding early when he found out something he didn't agree with. Went back home (interstate) didn't even say goodbye to me at my own wedding. Hasn't really had much to say about the pregnancy so I don't bother to tell him anymore. Its his loss. I am happy

    They were shocked as my bf and I had been together for the whole of 5 seconds. Dad said later (when I knew they were fine with it all and loving being grandparents) that he felt disappointed FOR me because I had so many plans and dreams of traveling and working overseas that would now have to wait til I was a lot older. Theysaid they were very proud of me for the decisions I made though and glad I decided to keep the baby.

    Disappointed is an understatement for my family.

    When I told my mum I was pregnant with DD1, she hung up on me and didn't speak to me for months (I was 18, and she was 17 when she had me yet my grandparents raised me). My grandad said "we were expecting it" and asked if we were keeping it. By the time DD1 was born they had gotten over *most* of whatever issues were there and of course fell in love when they saw her. Now they can't imagine life without her.

    When I fell pregnant the second time (ended in m/c), my mum did her block at me and told me to have a termination. As did DH and the rest of my family. I caved and booked the procedure but m/c the day before (which mum said was the best outcome because it means the control was taken out of my hands. Didn't make me feel better though).

    Third time was when DH and I separated and I was seeing a new guy. I was called every name under the sun and ended up terminating (turned out to be the best option in the end anyway).

    Forth time was with DD2. DH and I were back together and had guardianship of his 3 siblings as well as 2 year old DD1. We waited until 12 weeks which happened to be Xmas. While they weren't over the moon, they accepted it straight away. Their main concern was how we would cope with so many kids and only DH's income which was a trainee wage.

    Fifth time also ended in m/c (which we knew from the start it would) do they were all very supportive.

    Sixth (current) time, they were happy.

    Mum asked me "you sure you're pregnant?", and wouldnt talk to me; took her a few days until she congratulated me - she desperately wanted more kids but was unable to.

    Concerned but not disappointed. Her father's parents on the other hand, his mother was annoyed that I got pregnant and hoped for a miscarriage. His father told me I had ruined his life. Oh well, they lost their opportunity to get to know her.

    I fell pregnant at 18 and I was taken and forced to terminate.

    I am not planning on telling my parents until at least 12 weeks when we fall pregnant this time. They have already expressed that they expect me to wait until I am at least 30 before I even consider trying for a baby.

    It's really sad.

    I was 23 and married and my parents knew we were trying to have a baby so they weren't surprised and were over the moon.

    My parents have always been incredibly supportive of my brother and I, they are pretty awesome people. Even now they still tell us (and our respective spouses) how proud they are of us which is very nice.
