I have been very disconnected this pregnancy, because it wasn't planned. I was really nervous to tell my parents. My dad and I didn't speak for over a year after I told him about being pregnant with DS.
I was expecting to deal with yelling and insults again, but he was very calm. He was more concerned about me staying in school.
My mom took it worse than I thought. Her reaction was, "Another grandchild I won't get to see, right?" (we live out of state).
Even though they aren't excited about the baby, telling them has made me feel so much better. I think it has helped break down a wall. I am feeling more optimistic about being pregnant.
