    My parents were thrilled, my dad cried, my in laws were even more thrilled as they said they thought I may not be able to have kids ( being the ripe old age of 39!)

    Yes initially. But I often feel that kind of pressure for my life to go down a certain path. It's starting to crack me I think.

    I'm only 22. However im in a long term relationship of 7 years and had finished Uni a few yrs before. My parents were not shocked at all in fact they were over the moon! My in laws however were a completely different case. In their eye's, my partner should have been in his forty's (like she was when she accidentally fell preg) with his house paid off next door to them and a career earning $300000 a year. My MIL didn't even want him to have children, and she didn't have any qualms telling us either. To this day, she still has nothing positive to say about our soon to be baby! Apparently we are in for nothing but crying, screaming and general unhappiness for the next 15 years, were also nothing but immature and stupid for wanting and choosing to be parents (as this was a planned pregnancy).
    That being said, it's our life and the choices we make our ours and not those of others who think they know best. We can't wait for our adventures in parenthood! We are just lucky that we have other family there to support us, but you know what, it wouldn't make a difference wither way, we will always be there for one another.

    My mother never showed any disappointment in me falling pregnant at 18, but I hope she was. I would think poorly of her if she wasn't disappointed that her daughter was living at home, not working full-time, having only been in a relationship for a very short time... and was then knocked up. I hope she wanted more for me than to do nothing other than mother a child in my youth.

    My father, however, was openly disappointed, and kept telling me to "look into ALL OPTIONS." This meant "consider abortion....strongly." It just made me angry and want to avoid him.

    I think it's good if parents are disappointed when their children fall pregnant young... but I don't think that means they have to be jerks about it. They can be disappointed but still be supportive.

    maybe. although they are drug****ed idiots who prob hoped id turn out to be their smoking buddy so who knows.

    i fell pregnant at 16 and i doubt they were happy with that really but i couldn't care less. they kicked me out of home at 13 and I've never been back and never asked them for anything.

    i am rather disappointed with them

    Nope, they were thrilled.

    I was 29, married (although that didn't last lol), just back from 4-5 years over seas travelling, had a good job and so did my then DH.
