When I rang my mother to tell her I was pregnant, I was sort-of prepared for a negative reaction. I had been married before, then separated (divorce in the process), and they had never met my new partner, although we had been together for almost a year and friends for double that. I said to my mother "guess what?" and she said "you're pregnant". I laughed and said that I was, actually. She was silent and then asked "how the hell did that happen?". I offered to draw her a picture

I was 16 with ds1 (17 when he was born) and I had no clue until a routine test before having the implanon rod put in. I was at the family gps and my mum and little sister were in the waiting room. I was stunned. Made him do 2 more before I believed it. Then I explained my mum would flip her lid and asked if he could tell her. He did. I swear if we weren't there it would have turned physical! Then right up until I was 20 something weeks she was pushing every single day for an abortion!!!!! Even knowing the baby was a boy (she can't have boys) then after he was born she refused to even hold him for weeks. Not once has she ever had him for more than 30 minutes without me being in the house with her!

They assumed I'd feel differently if I actually found out I was pregnant, and I didn't. I wasn't going to sneak back later and ask about terminations without letting them know that was still my intention; I was going to have it straight out that I had not changed my mind.

I had been with my partner for 8 years, I'm a very organized person and like to plan things.
My family was absolutely over the moon - my sister in law (awful woman who no one likes) asked me if it was planned. Just felt like a kick in the guts.

With DS I took a bottle of wine over to my Mum and Dads and told Mum she would have to skip me one tonight' when she asked why I told her! She hugged me immediately, my Dad shook DH's hand and then she let go and said "We are excited right?!".. I think she was in shock (it was planned lol!) and she just wanted to make sure I was ok!
2nd pregnancy I told her whilst she was on the toilet!! Awkward I know! I didnt realise that was what she was doing! I had the pregnancy test in my hand. Unfortunately that pregnancy was an ectopic. So my 3rd pregnancy announcement was very low key, my mum was cautiously excited but seeing as we had only had the ectopic 3 months before and we found out SUPER early I everyone was a little scared for us. It kinda sucked, I wanted the hugs and excitment because I was freaking myself and it would of helped, sucked even more when SIL announced her pregnancy 10 weeks later and got exactly the reaction I had wanted!
I'm 15 weeks now though and my mum & dad are obsessed (again) with bub!

My pregnancy was far from planned, but my dp and I have been together a long time, not married though. When we told my family, they all literally jumped out of their chairs and applauded! My grandmother burst in to tears! I was extremely shocked and overwhelmingly happy with their reaction, especially as I knew my grandmother would have liked us to be married first.
