Embarassing for a grandma to get pregnant?


Let's say a grandmother already has like 7 grandchildren (ages 6 months to 10 years old) and now is pregnant! Would that be embarassing?

Also, does anybody know of a family with a similar situation? How did they interact? I mean...it's a little strange for their uncle to be their same age don't you think?

I would not think that it's a problem. A grandma is not just a grandma, she is a mother & a woman as well.
As fr family relationships, I would think children of the same age would call each other by name. They'll figure out relationship later & that's not a big deal.
It'll be for sure something to get used to, if you're the older adult child & dealing with a latecomer. Life is full of surprises. This would be one of life's challenges to accept & love the little new life coming into the world. GL.

Perhaps it is a bit uncommon, but not at all embarrassing. : ) I actually grew up with two friends who happened to be an uncle and a niece, but they were the same age. They were great friends, and called each other by first name. I think as Qmama put it, that is just something they'll figure out later--and in the meantime, not a big deal at all to be raised more as "cousins."

I think any family dynamic has the ability to be "awkward", and it is what you make it. As an outsider, I wouldn't think twice about this specific situation. : )

I don't know anyone close to me in this situation but I wouldn't think twice about it either. I think it would be such a joy to share child rearing with grandma. And how nice for uncle/aunt to be able to play with niece/nephew like cousins.

I'm a bit late coming in here, but my uncle is two years younger than me and the same age as my sister. It was never weird for us growing up -- we were all really close.

Big congrats on your BFP!

My brother is five years older than my kids. I know it's a bit further than you're speaking about but it's still pretty close, and not weird at all.
