My parents were aglow when I told them I was engaged. Wedding plans underway with a guy they love, someone who has blessed our family in so many ways, from helping my brother get into an AA program that saved his life, to being a father to the two boys I have from a previous relationship, he has been a God send, and I still think that. We have been together two years, he was my best friend that I refused to date before that. We became engaged on thanksgiving. Two months later, with a wedding date planned for 9-10-11 God has a funny way of being able to turn your life upside-down. Its ok though, really. I found out I am pregnant. Due date 9-9-11. Lol right? Well, Bryce and I are ecstatic, his family too. We planned to move the wedding date up, keep the plans the same just a sooner date. Thats when my mom drops a bomb. 'Its a disgrace to get married pregnant. Its a disgrace to walk down the isle and flaunt my baby belly, its a joke. Do you even love him or are you just getting married to get married? Your not a princess Shannon. Dad and I wont go, and you will not be inviting anyone from my family to this Joke of a wedding. Lets talk Saturday shall we?' I have always been close to my family. What the hell did I do wrong? A baby is a blessing from God, what makes this different then my other two? They didn't push me then into marrying that man. Which ended up being a good thing because my boys bio dad went down a bad path. But please, advice ladies? I am down, lost and just really want to give up. I love this man, I love his family, I am... or I was, happy with life. We own a five bedroom house, I am in college full time for Elementary Ed, I run a successful business he has a great job, what is so wrong with my life that this is a disgrace?Answer Question

go for it!!! you don't want to be just another "baby mama" to a third kid, and your mom should be happy for you that this guy is not a looser. what would she have said if he got u preggers and left you? he sounds like a good guy, go for it. gl.
