Advice on being pregnant with second child in early 20's

Hi . My name is Olivia, I'm 21 and I'm currently 3 weeks and 5 days pregnant with my second child . I had my daughter when I was 18, and she is 3 years old now. When my mom found out I was pregnant th first time, she was disappointed but supportive, she wasn't upset surprisingly. However, my family is very judgmental and when they find out I'm pregnant again, I know all the negativity is going to come at full force. I mean, it doesn't bother because, I've found myself growing closer to my fiancé's family instead of mines and their happy. My question is, what were the reactions did you get when you told your family you were expecting another bundle of joy? Thanks!

I am 23 have a 6 year old and a 10 month old. It is NOT easy. The more children you have the less people wanna help everyone was so happy about the baby coming but none of them stuck around. I've come to learn quickly not to depend on people and care about yourself. When I first told people I was pregnant nobody believed me I found out very early like you. Everyone thought I was making it up crying out for attention or smthn. I really wasn't I was truly pregnant. As time went on people warmed up to the situation. But slowly turned their backs on me, best friend gone, family not as supportive, all kinds of stuff. Be strong tho things work themselves out.
