Hey I've just found out I'm pregnant again. My son is 16 months, will be 2 on December 3rd. I've worked out I'm 3-4 weeks (thanks to Clearblue Conception Indicator!! Lol) so due around December again!! Gonna be an expensive time of year, what with two birthdays and Christmas too!! Very excited but nervous about my family's reaction as I'm only 20. My dad wasn't happy when I fell pregnant with my son, so I hate to think how he'll react when I tell him I'm pregnant again! Oh well... bit peeved it's Friday too so can't go to the doctor 'til Monday!!!!

Anyone else due around December time??

I was 17 when i got pregnant with my 1st. My family was shocked but came round to the idea within a week or so. My son was born in april and i got married when he was 8 months old and it was 2 months before my 19th birthday. My husband and i started trying for baby number 2 straight away after we got married. I got pregnant last june and the baby was due end of feb this year. I was 11 days late and my baby girl arrived on the 9th march, the day before my 20th birthday. Everyone was ok with the news of baby number 2 but i think that's because i'm married so they can't really say anything about my life because i have my own family now. If your family can't handle the news about baby number 2, then just leave them to cool off abit. They will eventually come round to the idea of having a new baby in the family. It's your life so you live it however you want :)

lol I was so scared to tell my parents when I was pregnant with our first. I was 20 years old and was worried what they would say. I honestly thought my mom would be ok with it and my dad would be mad, they surprised me. It was my mom who said "what, you didn't use protection?" LOL and my dad who laughed and said "wow!". My mom came around and now I couldn't stop her from buying her grandkids things if i tried, she loves them so much, as does my dad, they love being grandparents. congrats to you and good luck with your parents!

I think this time around my husband's family took the news better than my family did.

I know the feeling. I was 20 when I got pregnant with my b/g twins, and was 21 when I had them. They just turned two June 8th, and I'm expecting their little brother July 13th, with a planned c-section.

My parents weren't too happy about either pregnancy either, neither was the rest of our family for that matter, but you can't let it get to you. I know it's easier said than done, but you can't let it stress you out too much.

I know the feeling i was 19 and only been with my fianc'e 7 mths when i feel pregnant with our first son whos now 4.5 yrs old, my fianc'e mums face when he told her i still remember till this day, the first thing she said to my bf at the time was " are you happy about this and are you going to keep it" there was never a congrats, when i have our son she tried to take over raising him,as she thought i couldnt do it ! We ended up having a falling out and i didnt speak to her for 2.5 yrs , untill i fell preg with our daughter, which she still wasnt happy for us then untill i had our daughter as it was her first grandaughter, now im 15 weeks pregnant with number 4 due on the 21st of Dec and she is finally happy and we get on fine(only took almost 5yrs). I still get OMG you are going to have 4 kids and your only 24yrs old lol from the rest of the family, but i think to myself i cant make everyone happy:)

I'm due in Feb with baby #3. I'm 21 (will be 22 when the baby is born) and have a 3 year old daughter and a 14 month old daughter. My parents didn't take it too well, but I'm married and my husband and I are taking care of them so it doesn't matter.

i'm 21, i've got a 2year old daughter, born April 9th 08, i turned 19 11days after having her. i was very worried about telling my mum but it wasn't as bad as i thought, she was looking at baby things an hour after telling her. Telling my dad and stepmum was alot harder, my dad tried talking me out of keeping it and my stepmum was very upset as she'd been trying for a baby for 3years with no luck... Me and my partner we're planning to get mrried this July but i found out in December that i was pregnant again, due in August. My mum and dad we're both upset as they thought i was putting too much on myself but after realising what a great job i'd done with my daughter they we're both thrilled, My step mum was thrilled for me as she finally had a baby last year... My partners family aren't happy but thats more to do with him being with me than the baby... we have moved the wedding to July next year and my lil boy is due August 23rd... x

I have a 4 year old and a 1 year old. I was 18 with my first and 22 with my second, my dad has not talked to me in 5 years (when I found out I was pregnant with my first) and when I told him I was pregnant with my second he told me to get an abortion (which i am totally against!) So I figure my kids and I are better off without him he wasn't there much when I was a kid anyways.

hi lauren... i just had my second buba in march (my 1st was 15 m.o). and i was 20. everyone i spoke to was excited for me and my partner. i like to believe that age doesn't need to rule parenting- maturity level does. if your a good parent now, then you should still be with your next one lol. as long as your happy, just enjoy :) good luck and congrats....

I'm 20 and expecting my second also. I don't live with my parents but I was terrified of telling them. I waited the three months because of miscarriage and then called my mom who surprised me and was trilled also because the baby is due around her birthday. I waited two more weeks and told my dad. He was trilled but he seemed ok about it. My first daughter has a december birthday and this baby is due in July. I hope everything works out!

They are complacent about it. I think the only reason they are remotely happy is that it's a boy (my sisters have girls). They aren't happy with me regardless because my husband is in the Air Force and I'm moving before the birth and won't be around them anymore.

Thanks Nicole! Have your parents got used to the idea of your second baby?? I hope they'll get used to it... I suppose they'll have no choice!

I am in your same boat! I turn 20 this month, I have a 13 month old, and Im due July 15 with my second. My parents were pissed when I got married at 18 (less than a month out of high school), but furious when we had an oopsie within the first month of marriage. Needless to say they weren't happy when I got pregnant with my son. The best advice is too be happy for your blessing. They will all get over when the baby comes.
