37 and prego

Hi ladies. I'm 37 Yrs old and am pregnant with our 8 th baby. I'm only 4 weeks along so it's really too soon to start telling people. My problem is that I'm afraid of what my family will think on both sides. Neither side thinks we should be having anymore kids. We just felt like it was right for us. How do I bring this up with the family and when is it right to do so?  I guess I'm just looking for some mom judgement support.

Hi.  I'm 38 pregnant 33 wks with number five!  I was / am not in the best situation to have a baby. I figured ppl especially family would be judgemental.. They were supportive more then I thought. It wa s hard I was so worried about telling them,  there was the few that was negative, but they've gotten used to it.  Now they are all excited about it.. Just remember it's ur lives not there's everything will be ok:)  best of luck!!

I just had my 10th baby at 38. She is 9 weeks old. My family didn't mind but I did have one friend who was was negative about it. But I didn't worry. I'm so happy. She is the joy of our lives. We have 5 boys and 5 girls. They are such blessings.

I am 36 and 8 weeks pregnant. My son was killed in a car accident at age 16 almost 2 1/2 years ago on Dec 13. This baby is due Dec 12. We hear alot of comments that we are trying to replace our son etc.... we all know people are irreplaceable. I say congrats to you and if family and friends wants to judge and make comments,let them. They are probay just jealous anyway.

I was SOOO worried at first but now say hell with them and their comments in the one who's got to live it and deal with it :)  NOT THEM. so keep ur heads high keep doing what you are best of luck!
