So while almost everyone in my family already knew, we officially announced our pregnancy yesterday, and while many were concerned they were overall very happy and excited. Well the only person who wasn't around yesterday was my uncle(my fathers brother), so we told him this morning. My father passed away when I was 9 so he's been the only real father figure I've had. We haven't had a great relationship, he's very vocal about his opinions and such and that's always been a problem, but we deal with it. While I knew he wouldn't be happy about all this I expected he would just sort of get over it like he did the first time. Well he didn't. He not only made sure we knew he was unhappy, he proceeded to call not only me but my husband lazy. Informing us we are on the verge of poverty, ( we put an offer on buying a house yesterday), and that we just work the jobs that are easy because we don't want to try any harder (my husband works a 40 hour a week night job and part time day job, and I only work part time during the day at a coffee shop because I haven't been able to find a teaching job in 3 years). I totally lost it and started screaming and cursing at him which I felt horrible about because my daughter was there. After him refusing to listen to us for 20 minutes I made the decision to kick him out of my house and told him he could no longer have any contact with us or my daughter. I feel so lost and upset, but I know deep down this is probably the best thing for my family. I just wish it could have turned out better. Thanks for listening, I know we are all having problems at some point.
