Pregnancy And Stress

I have not yet told my family that I am pergnant, as I am waiting to go to my first dr appointment on July 12. However, my brother is going through a divorce, and my Mom and sister can not keep their noses out of it. Seems like I am the middle man. They both call me crying to me "this one said that, this one said this, can you believe this?" etc, etc. I keep blowing them off and they ar starting to get angry with me. My Mom is starting to think I don't care about my brother and that I am on his wife's side (not that i think there are sides, I just feel it is none of my business and everyone should stay out of it). Anyway, it really stresses me out and once I tell them I am pregnant, I think they will understand why I am being this way, but it hurts to know that i am hurting them right now, but I don't want to be involved with the drama. I know stress is not good when you are pregnant, am I right? Thanks!

you are definitely right. I think that once you tell them they will understand. Stress really isn't good in pregnancy. You want to keep your life as calm and drama-free as possible. Good luck with this.

Thanks. Now to get through this until my appointment. I orignally wanted to wait 3 months to say anything, to make sure everything was okay, but with all that is going on, I think they need to know so they can leave me out of it all.

i think you should tell them as soon as you can. Maybe you can spare their hurt feelings by letting them know what's going on. I have a sister who's always having some kind of drama...I've always tried to stay out of it, but even more so when i was pregnant. Every family has their drama. I hope everything goes well and they understand. Good luck honey!
