Worried about wht other people think.

I am aroun 10 weeks pregnant with my second child (my fist dr's appointment is wednesday), and i have an 8 1/2 month old, that part i'm not worried about but wht i am worried aboutis what my parents and my in-laws will think about us having another baby right now, and yes it was planned, but with the economy the way it is and i havn't gone back to work since i had my son (i got laid off before i even had him b/c we were slowing down for our season). but i am worried that everyone will think that I got pregnant again just so that I can stay home with my son (and other baby) and my DH is being great and has told me he is going to get a second job so i can stay home (he can make more money than i ever could) but I am just worried what our families will think, anyone else have similar feelings? oh and since i havn't been back to work i have no insurance but I am applying through the assistance office.

  • Your all adults, it would be incredible rude for someone to presume that. You can't get insurance through your DH?

  • My DH work doesn't offer insurance.

  • It sounds like you two have a good arrangement. It sounds like he wants you to stay hm and take care of the babies. You are already at hm w/ one, why is it bad to have another? If they don't like it too bad, you two apparently have it under control.

  • you know what Id say, who cares what they think. I'm the type of person who feels, there is never a time you're completely ready to have a child or another child. Seeing as your husband & you planned this pregnancy & the baby was made out of love, that is all that matters, so don't let anyone take that from you.

  • Who cares what people think?

    It's an attitude that can be tough to develop...but remember that the Court Of Public Opinion has NO jurisdiction over you.

  • I just went through the same thing....and at first the in laws started well where will the baby sleep because our house is 2bedroom and we have a 21month old and then my mil started with well i will be so busy now when I babysit and I have been going to school since one year before my son was born and we planned this one so that I will take some time off of school because I breastfeed and they don't agree with that they think I should go back to school right away after having the baby.....but after they got all that out of their system they are excited. lol I just learned to do what my DH and I want and forget what they think...even if it means I have to put my pretend ear plugs in for half an hour... Good luck!
