i am pregnant with my third child.....now what?

i found out sunday i am expecting my third child. i am divorced with two children from my marriage. i left my husband two years ago because of his drug use. since then i have gotten on my feet held a job the entire time. gotten my own place and started college. (i am 25) i met a man a year and half ago who is now my bf. we have been dating seriously for just over a year now. he is the olny person i have dated since my marriage ended..all my fam is happy cuz he is a great guy...i was excited till i told my older brother. and he pretty much gripped me out. we had planned to get married and have a baby down the road. but it just happened in a different order. he has stepped in as a father for my two previous children (their father has nothing to do with them) i know this isnt the proper way but is it really that bad for him to gripe me out over? i lost my dad two weeks ago and for the first time since i was happy. now idk..

  • Hang in there... You brother might have said something because of the stress he is under from the death of your father, I am sorry to hear that. The timing might not be ideal for the new baby but either way it is coming. How family feels about this is not the issue, they will come around. How do you and SO feel? It might be a shock right now but in time you will figure everything out.
