Negative Family Members...

So I know I'm not exactly rich and this baby definitely was not planned (I was actually on the pill when I got pregnant) but I'm very excited about her arrival and wouldn't have it any other way!! Anyway, my sister just came for a visit and she actually asked me "Why didn't you get an abortion?? You don't need this baby"... What?!?! I was speechless, I couldn't believe she would say something like that. My mother thinks she's just jealous bc she is 7 years older than me and doesn't have any kids of her own (but claims she doesn't want them), but it still bothered me that she would say something like that. I'm 29 years old, working and going to school and my mother is going to help with babysitting,  so if I want to keep my baby then why wouldn't I? Anyone else have to deal with negative family members?

I had to deal with an aunt who was negative. honestly put it behind you I know it hurts but you don't need negative energy around you and your baby you are a grown adult. she may come around my aunt did eventually apologize to me so just stay positive and be happy for your little one

Dont listen to all that. U really Dont need all the negativity rite now. Just imagine u and your Lil one having all the fun in the world. Those Ppl will be the same once to come back around when u have your baby. Dont have no second thought. Just go on and have your baby. God be with you.

That's terrible Diamond!! I can't imagine having to hear it everyday. I don't get how some people can be so insensitive and just don't right mean. But you're right they are definitely our little blessings. :-)  Good luck to you and your little one!!
