Thoughts: I finally told my mom the week before Christmas. She seemed happy, but it's hard to tell through email. When I visited over Christmas we talked about the baby a lot, and she seemed genuinely happy and excited. :) I didn't get any snide comments or anything! I was worried for nothing! SO's mom on the other hand hasn't said a single word to me about it since he told her. We saw her a few days before Christmas and when everyone else was congratulating us and asking about the baby she didn't say a word. She didn't even ask how I was feeling or anything. We talked about other things, but she never once mentioned the pregnancy. Same thing when I saw her yesterday. I guess she wanted us to be married first, but that's stupid IMO because SO was married when he had his two kids and his (ex) wife is a witch and they ended up divorced. So how is their crappy relationship better than our healthy relationship just because there's a piece of paper?? Ugh. Whatever. If she doesn't treat this baby the same way she treats the other kids, we're going to have serious problems!
Sarah, I can relate.... My man and I are not married (although we plan to when we can). I am, in fact, still trying to get officially divorced from my ex. So the timing of our new baby is a little weird, especially in others' eyes, but that's when it happened - right in the midst of my messy life. I don't like that it dampens my enthusiasm to share our baby news with some of the more conservative/judgemental relatives. But my man and I are super excited about our baby girl and are really happy with each other - he's wonderful!! - so I am trying to just be accepting of the whole situation myself and know that someday the divorce will be final :)
