I told my family as soon as we found out we were pregnant, as they have known we were TTC. I also told my best friend as we catch up each week and talk about baby related stuff. DH has said we should wait til 12 weeks to tell anyone else so I agreed even tho after the first pregnancy test I just wanted to shout it from all the roof tops! But now DH and I thought we might tell his family at 10 1/2 weeks at easter as everyone will be gathered already...but instead of feeling excited about it I'm now feeling scared an nervous. DH has a daughter, 4 yrs old, from a previous relationship and it was un unplanned and unwanted pregnancy. Now of course she is loved by me and DH as well as his family and is a happy, intelligent and cheerful child. I think it was hard for him telling his parents then....but now, even tho we are happily married, own our own home, both with secure jobs (mine working from home so I'll be able to look after baby when it gets here) I'm feeling nervous telling them. I'm not sure why...I think they'll be happy at the news. I've never gotten along really well with them. I'm nice and invite them over for dinner occasionally. But they are still very friendly with DH's ex, even tho she dragged us thru court for 2 years and cost us $30,000! And the In-laws tend to butt in quite often (I think they've learnt not to now). So I guess I just want them to be happy for us and not give advice or try to tell us what to do. I guess I'm just scared they might be like 'oh so soon after getting married' or 'can you afford it?' or 'oh S won't like a little sister or brother crying all the time' (even tho she'd love a little sister or borther around to play with)....I don't know, I just feel like they'll see something negative about it. Has anyone else experienced this? Does anyone have any ideas of how we can tell them? I think I'll have DH tell them over the easter brunch (I'd like them to know he's happy about it too).
