Pregnancy Pregnancy

3 boys and now a new baby on the way

I have 3 boys, 7, 5, and 4. Just found out I am pregnant again. I am 11 wks and scared. My life seems to not be ready for a baby. Me and the dad are fighting and my family does not like him. And no he is not the father of the other kids. My family will not be the happiest people on earth when I tell them. But I am excited about this baby. What do I do and how do I tell my family?

You just tell them. Just tell them no matter how much they might not like the father, this baby is apart of you and you don't need to hear any negativity.

I am pregnant with my fourth boy. I waited until 18 weeks to tell people. I was obviously pregnant but no one asked because they knew I would say something when I was ready.

Tell people when you are ready and ignore negativity.

If you are excited then be excited! We are not in any position to have this baby in terms of finances but by just being happy and excited thankfully my family has kept their mouths shut. If they start saying anything then either shut them up by saying that you don't need to hear it and you just want to be happy with it. If you can't do that then just walk away. good luck!

I would'nt worry about what anyone had to say. Although it would be nice to have family accept the pregnancy and even get along with bf because of it, dont let anyone steal your joy if they won't. Be happy, the child is a blessing, and this may help you and bf patch up this rough time. Congrats!

Perhaps wait to tell them? Maybe even wait until after you find out gender. Once you know the baby's gender i think the baby becomes much more real to people and it's hard for them NOT to be excited.

Just tell them. It does't matter if they are happy or not because its your life and as long as you are happy that's all that matters. I am expecting #14 and I have stopped speaking to most of my family. My kids are better off without so much negativity. My dad, stepmom and sister love my family. My mom and grandma however can go fly a kite.lol.

Just because they don't like the daddy doesn't mean they should harbor any hate towards the innocent baby...remember YOU'RE in this relationship, not them...
