So we weren't planning to have more kids for a few years, but here I am knocked up after some drunken St. Patrick's day fun with dh. I don't even remember doing it that night, but apparently dh didn't use a condom or pull out. Stuff happens, although it was a shock we are ok with it, since we always wanted another child, just at a later date.
while my family is very happy and supportive about the news, mil was pissed! She told dh that she wanted a better life than this for him. That we can't afford the kids we have, and have no business having more. (Which is not true by the way, dh makes plenty to support us. We don't use any assistance, and have plenty of money for the kids to have extras such as swimming classes, rock climbing, etc.) she blames me for the pregnecy and basically think I tricked dh into it so I can continue to be a mooching sahm. Additionally, out nephew was born with genetic issues so she feels that we should just be greatful for the children we have, and was should not risk having a special needs child. Personally I would not fear of birth defects keep me from having this baby.
Anyone else deal with this kind of reaction to a pregnency? It's hurtful and I can hardly bring myself to be around mil right now.
