    My dad was so excited that he burst into tears when we told him we were expecting. I was always adament I wasnt having children so it was a huge surprise. We went on to miscarry that child and the next and it broke his heart each time. Our son is now the best thing in his life, ive never seen a more proud pop!
    My ILs were just as good and still are.
    I know i am incredibly blessed to have such a wonderful family.

    Yep. I was told that I had 'options'.
    My sister told me that she hoped my child died or was (her words) retarded. She finally apologized for this recently due to me going through autism testing with my child.

    THIS! And because my Dad hasn't ever spoken about his 'putting expectations on me'... he just keeps digging himself deeper and deeper out of my life... We've had a big fight lately, but this has clarified to me what it is all over... HIS projected expectations... I just want him to say sorry and enjoy his grandkids and see that I am HAPPY being a SAHM (picking up the odd supply teaching day here and there)

    Mum was ****ed as a wasp in a jar at first but by the time we left her house she was fine
    Dad was extatic from the second we told him - his older brother had been a grandpa for a few months a he was over the moon so he wanted to look at the happy side and offered for us to live with him as long as we needed

    Mil and dil at first were shocked as we'd been told we would need ivf to have kids but came around as DH is their one and only

    My brother was worried as I was working tons and we didn't have a house etc
    Sister was excited as long as we were excited

    My grandmothers were happy to see a new generation and seeing DH were engaged they seemed happy

    Like a PP I was also a disappointment from conception so I told my estranged parents over the phone which was a very cool reception. I attempted to rebuild the relationships because I felt like I should for the kids but it's been almost 7 wonderfully estranged years something I have no desire to try to reverse.

    DH told PIL as I was really sick with HG so was home in bed and has said he will never tell me what they said. MIL didn't talk to me for a number of months as she was hurt I was making her a young grandmother but she rarely sees them so it's not a huge deal. SIL the favoured child waited a proper amount of time in MIL eyes so her kids are unsurprisingly the favourites. FIL was pretty good but I'm recently realising just how much he is actually good at hiding his true feelings about things so I may be wrong. Whenever I've mentioned how I think it's great they are young grandparents as mine were too old and frail to do much except a very gentle hug and kiss where as they can play with spend time with the kids and he gets all funny about it
