I'm pregnant and no one is happy.

Me and dh recently got married. He has 2 kids 13 and 10 which we have most of the time and I have none.
We are both on the older side so we both agreed that we wouldn't prevent pregnancy but we wouldn't try either. Well I'm pregnant and I'm happy, I thought I wasn't ever going to have kids. But no one is happy for us, both our parents were saying we are too old (I'm 35 and he's 38) and that we should have just been happy with his 2 children. His kids aren't happy either, they said that this house is full enough with the 4 of us.
So what do you ladies think? Are we too old? Should we have just said no babies and used protection?

That is not too old! Your parents should be happy for you! I understand the kids reaction tho. They are probably scared you will love your child more. Just reassure them nothing will change and in time they should warm up to the idea.

Congrats!

As long as you are healthy and in good financial shape, its fine. A lot of women wait until mid 30s theae days. Heck my mom had me at 40.
