Teen kids not impressed with Mom

I was just wondering if anyone out there has teenagers from a first marriage or previous relationship that are not impressed with mom being pregnant at 41 yrs. Any ideas on how to turn them around?

Hi, yes I had this issue with my pregnancy (baby was born 5/26/09) My then 12 y/o son actually started crying when we told him and was very upset. Ever since Brooke was born he is her biggest fan - I tell people the story all the time about how upset he was when I was preggo and he now adores her and she him - he feeds her in the car in the morning while I am driving him to school, plays with her at home while I pump or make dinner, pulls her around in her walker to "see" the house - it is so cute, I also have a 19 y/o and a 16 y/o and they were fine with it from the get go. I am sure your kids will come around when it is more "real."

Hugs,
Tiffany

We had two older kids (see the pic below in my siggy) and they were absolutely DISGUSTED that we were still "doing it" and having a baby!

Well, I have a 15 1/2 yr old (from a previous marriage), but I'm not pregnant yet -- hoping to be soon. I'm not sure how he's going to take it. I find that my level of excitement, enthusiasm and acceptance of any situation is met with the same by other people (even if it takes time). Teenagers are a breed all their own. I just had a battle with mine tonight.

I wish you a happy and healthy 9 months and hope that your "spirited" ones come around soon. This makes me wonder if I should tell my son we are TTC. Probably the less said the better. LOL

Hang in there!

Firstly, thank you all for your support. Secondly, I think I may have unintentionally misled you, I am TTC, my apologies. I separated from the kid's father just over 3 yrs ago, after 17yrs. I have found a terrific guy but I'm not sure my kids realise that although I'm their mom, I'm a woman too. My BF & I dropped hints of the idea of having a
