Just wondering if anyone else got thoughtless comments when you told people...
We have close friends that are my DS's godparents. My DH kept saying it was wrong not to share the happy news with them yet (I wanted to wait til after 8 weeks). So we saw them yesterday & I let my 2 boys tell their "aunt & uncle" that their DS whose 5 mos old is going to have a little "cousin". The first thing they said was "oh, haven't you ever heard of protection?" They were not joking at all. The reaction was just a bland "alright then..." Then the question "is this what you want?"
Anyway, I was just a little taken aback... They knew about our history of infertility, the fact that I was scheduled for a hysterectomy, they know we are financially stable, they saw how excited my boys were and the smiles on our faces... I just can't understand how that could be the first thing someone would say....
Not sure if I'm being hormonal, but I really was hurt by the reaction :-(
Now I'm afraid to tell others!
