Re: Was anyone else terrified of announcing to family?
I am always astounded when I read threads like this... I can't imagine a family being nasty about a baby being born.
The only true exceptions I could see is if their was mental illness or addiction in the family (i had family members that kept having children despite an alcoholic father and a schizophrenic mother and that was no environment for children). Or if you were expecting your family to support you financially. Otherwise I just can't really wrap my mind around it..
