I have yet to reveal this pregnancy to anyone so far, mainly because I don't expect any good responses from my extended family as it was a surprise pregnancy and really not the best time in my life to have a second child. Each day that goes by and I keep this huge secret to myself I feel a bit more anxious about how I'm going to have to tell everyone soon.
Their thoughts are important to me as they are my main support system and we are very close, I don't want to upset anyone. But this has happened, I have decided to keep the baby, I know it won't be easy but I'll try my best and hope they will continue to be there for us....I don't know what else to say other than that.
Has anyone been in this situation, had negative responses from your family members? Any thoughts on what else to say? I plan to sit down with everyone together to tell them. I expect there might be tears of disappointment and shock, someone might walk out and refuse to speak to me for a while, I might be asked to leave and stay away for a while... I really don't know what will happen. Telling them face to face will be hard.
