Quoting BeingBrandie:" Hello everyone i'm Brandie. I have 3 kids and pregnant with my 4th. I do not have a computer so everything ... [snip!] ... doesn't matter what they think or say but they ate family and I do have to still live with them. Thank you for your responses!"
Congrats and welcome!
I am kind of in the same boat with SO.
He already has three kids from a previous relationship( 10,8 and 5...well 6 tomorrow!). I have a son, froma previous relationship that ended last december after 7 years.
SO and I got together in December, after three years of friendship and mutual attraction that was never acted on. Moved together in April. We were in a very though spot financially since SO's hours got cut like mad. He changed job, though and our finances are getting back on track.
My family was against us having a baby so soon, especially since finances were rocky, and since together we have already four kids and a lot on our hands when the four of them are together.
I just called my mother as soon as I got my BFP. She was apprehensive but it's been two weeks now and she is starting to be very happy and excited, especially since my sister is pregnant right now. Our babies will have an age gap of approximately 6 months.
So, for me, the negativity didn't last very long( as I suspect my father talked to her a lot about how a new baby in the family would be fantastic. My dad is definitely awesome and supportive.)
Best of luck to you.
