I told my mom the day I found out, even before I told my husband!

Iluvkeenan - I understand!!!! But my family took the news better than I thought they would. They've been critical of the idea of me getting pregnant. But, now that it's happened, I think they know that there is nothing they can say. If they tick me off, they won't be around the baby. So, except for a few comments about me making life harder on myself, they haven't been too bad.

ah, hugs to you. No judgment here. We're not in the best situation to be having a baby right now and DH's parents were less than pleased with the news. To heck with them! We are overjoyed and everything will work out!!

Thanks guys! I still don't know what to do. My boyfriend wants me to call and tell my mom before she gets here so it's not awkward but I'm way too chicken. I think I'll just wait and if she guesses, I'll tell her I had planned on waiting until 12 weeks. Though she might be hurt, she'll see how her judging me in the past has changed our relationship. I think she might guess because I drink beer when I'm not pregnant and she'll wonder why I'm not this weekend lol

I'm sad to say I know how you feel. I am going to wait until at least 12 weeks if we can and would love to wait until closer to Christmas if I can do it, but may not be possible. I know my family will have snide comments that I don't care to hear even though they have all been assuming for months that I am prego but wasn't.

I got prego with my first 2 by surprise while my BFF had been trying for years to have a baby and I had to tell her not once, but twice that I was prego with a surprise. Luckily she was finally getting ready to do her first round of IVF when I told her about my 2nd, but she also spoiled our 'news' and told my family before I wanted to:( I was 14weeks along.

Yeah it's so hard to be pregnant around judgmental people. I feel like when I finally do tell, they will maybe realize they'd have known sooner had they just been nicer!! As for my sister, that's rough though she'll also have snide remarks!! But I do feel bad she hasn't been able to conceive. With my son, she was still single but she was jealous I had one before her and am younger! Tough luck!
