So DH finally told his mom that we are expecting baby #3 and she told him that she thinks we are making a mistake (and a bunch of other not-so-kind stuff about me).
We didn't plan to get pregnant. I was on BC. It was an accident. When I first told DH, he begged me to have an abortion, but after having 3 miscarriages in between our boys, I just couldn't do it. A baby is a blessing, planned or not planned. DH eventually came around, though, like me, a little worried about finances and how it will affect the boys (we'd finally just gotten our family situation stable and everyone was doing really well!)
Back to MIL - her reaction is pretty much the same as every family member we've told: my parents, my brother, his cousins (who are like his sisters, he's an only child), etc. We don't live anywhere near any of our family but it still hurts that they don't seem to want to support us/me in this decision. I know we've struggled in the past and we'll struggle again but we've always been able to stand on our own. We've never asked them for money or anything else (except maybe babysitting, but we've paid it back by watching their kids) Their reaction is making me double think everything. Am I making a mistake? What am I not seeing that everyone else apparently is?
I've also had like3-4 of my friends/coworkers announce that they are also pregnant and it seems like everyone is so happy for them, their pregnancies are happy news, why does mine have to be something I should be ashamed of myself for?
I just feel so abandoned and alone right now.
