When you’re an adult in a strong and committed relationship, you expect the reaction to your pregnancy announcement to be positive, right? Unfortunately, not everyone reacts the way they would like. So it’s very important that you don’t overthink or overreact to their reaction.
Don’t forget that sharing important news with someone for the first time means you’re ready for an honest and sincere response. True feelings will come out and maybe it’s not so bad. Starting a new journey sometimes means getting rid of the rusty anchors that are holding you down. Now you have so much to look forward to! Let’s talk about those friends and family who reacted to my pregnancy announcement.
I personally called my closest friends and family members to give them the important news in person. Most of the responses were full of pure joy, and some were a little lackluster. I am writing this to help you moms for the first time, or even the second, third, fourth time, to navigate the various reactions. I just want you to know that you are not the only one.
