I am so angry right now so I had to type this. My husband is apparently sterile, was diagnosed as a teen after health problems and has been sterile ever since. I knew full well that he was when we married and I was happy to adopt and foster, we have a big house and are comfortable financially so I've enjoyed helping and providing a safe haven for children over the years, it's been wonderful. Last week I found out I was pregnant, I was of course overjoyed, a little confused when the nurse said it, but overjoyed. So I immediately told my husband and he trusts me implicitly so realised well it's a half miracle, let's celebrate. However his family have reacted differently, they've told him to leave me and that the child won't be his. How do I deal with this? I've never been a confrontational person so I doubt I could just walk up and make a snappy comment.
To make things worse my family are starting to question it too and I'm just so upset now. I was so excited to tell everyone and now everyone's telling me it's impossible and I'm 'wrong' and must have cheated. My husband, thank god, has always trusted me and I hope he always will... But things are getting ridiculous now as they've spread it round town...
Ideas ladies? Even if given the chance I would not choose to test through amniocentesis to show them because number one there's a risk in it and number two I'm not justifying their ridiculous ideas.

Yeah I went through the same thing. My dh was said to not be able to have kids. Now we were not married when I got pregnant with my oldest we married shortly after I found out. He knew he was the daddy. However his mom out right told me she didn't believe it was his. I said "Well we are all entitled to our opinion." and left it at that. When baby was born there was never another word said about it because once they saw her face they were hooked...lol. I hate your miracle is being taintedby the negativity of the family. I hope things get better for you. Congratulations.
