I agree with the above.

I burst into tears - scared, worried, OMG tears when I got that little blue line with our third (and only unplanned) pregnancy. I would be upset if I thought my DH harbored resentment because that news caught me by surprise and my first thoughts were to be worried, not excited. I certainly came around and very quickly. But, her initial reaction, while unfortunately public, isn't a big deal. How she handles it with the new baby is what is important.
