we announced our pregnancy to family, my grandparents act like it's so weird that i'm pregnant, my son is 2, and my grandpa said "you are going to end up with 20 kids!" lol, anyone else get weird reactions?

i'm close to my grandparents and lived with them for 2 years. we just told our parents and my grandparents that we are expecting our second child. our son is 2. My grandma just makes this shocked scared face when we tell them, and my grandpa says "you are going to end up with 20 kids!". lol. they had 3 kids before they were our age, and all within 4 years so i don't really get their reaction. i know they are just worried about us though because they know how much work it all is and they worry about the economy a lot too.

has anyone else gotten these kind of unreasonable reactions?

  • My family wigged out when they found out that we were considering to try to have a baby. My husband has 2 from a previous. Familys tend to worry before they are happy.
