Second-Dh decided to change careers so he could be a better father and all of my mothers fears went on us. Third--We were going to move again 4th I am crazy to have another baby.

I don't really listen to my mother anyway lol
Some mothers are like that - mine. Some are not like that at all and wonderful - MIL. I strive to be like her!

My parents have disapproved of every one of our pregnancies (and those are just the ones they know of, they know nothing of our m/c's). Lots of rude and gross comments, my mother even was wishing for our first baby (DD) to be miscarried. Disgusting.
They have disliked darn near every decision I/we have made, though, so I've just gotten used to it and choose to live our life and make our choices. They can either shut up and be with us, or stay away.
