Our bub will be the third grandchild on my side, and I wasn't expecting much excitement, but both of my parents are over the moon! My dad rubs my belly every single time he see's me and is proud to tell ANYONE who will listen that he knew it was a girl right from the start even when everyone else thought it would be a boy. Mum was hanging out to go shopping for clothes so was counting down the days until my ultrasound to find out what we're having. Bub will be the first on my husbands side and I actually think my parents are more excited than his...
So if your family is anything like mine, you have nothing to worry about :-)

I was pregnant with both of my SIL's at the same time and we had our kids within 4 months of each other ... although the first grandchild was 2 years older than these 3. The whole family was so excited about all the children and all the pregnancies. Having them all at once increased the excitement I think.
Since then there have been 2 grandchildren - 1 was around 20 months later and we made quite a fuss about her and then my dd after a 3 year break in grandchildren and there was plenty of fuss about her. The best thing about my dd's arrival (and my pregnancy) was her older cousins excitement and involvement. They are all old enough now to be involved in the whole thing and it's fantastic.
I was the eldest of 13 grandchildren in my dad's family. I was special as I was the first and they did make a fuss of me, but I think there was a fuss about every child. There are over 14 years from the youngest to the eldest of us and I know I was always super excited to have another cousin!

My son is the first for both families, but my uncle just had a little baby boy, younger than my youngest just to muddle the generations a bit but he's my grandmas 15th grandchild (if you include great grand kids) and she's just as thrilled and excited as my mum about her first grand child (My son)
I suspect partly having a baby grandchild makes my grandma feel less old that shes still a grandma not a GREAT grandma.

Ours will be number 10 for DP's family. We haven't told them yet but I'm not expecting them to be anything but excited. They've asked a few times when we'll be having a baby.
It will be the first for my parents but I'm worried that they won't be as excited because they think we should get married first...
