This will be my 2nd April baby

I found out on our 11th anniversary that we are expecting baby number 5. Total surprise for all of us. I have not told many people. I don't want the word to travel too fast.

I just don't know how to tell my SIL who is expecting her first in February.
She's going to think i got pregnant because she is and by no means did i do that.

I have already received some negative feedback from a good friend of mine and my mother

My good friend told me to have an abortion and my mom told me to give the baby up for adoption
Neither of those choices are good. I can't do either..

Re: This will be my 2nd April baby

Sorry you had to hear those things from your friend and mother. I got negativity for being pregnant now with #2!! My FIL's wife said after a lengthy pause, "So... was that planned then?". Really? I don't see why that would even matter.

DD will be 3 by the time this LO is born I don't get what the attitude is for. Can just imagine when we announce our 5th

This is our first April baby but this is pretty neat...

Congrats!!!

Wow, that's so horrible of your loved ones to say such things!! Put it out of your mind if you can!! I can't believe that people would say that to you! Every baby is a joy and a gift! Keep your head up and lean on your DH for support! Take care!

They should be ashamed for saying such cruel comments. Congratulations on your new addition! Looks like they can be playmates!
