Re: Breaking the news
8 days after I found out I was pregnant I found out my dad had pancreatic cancer. I flew home and ended up staying there for three months to take care of him until he died. We knew he only had a few months to live and I couldn't stand the thought of saying goodbye for the last time since I wouldn't be able to afford to fly out again except for the funeral. He died when I was 18 weeks. It was my first baby too so it really put a damper on my pregnancy.
Sorry to ramble off subject, I just find comfort in hearing others went through the same thing. Anywho, I think having a big family is great and you should ignore haters. The family is under attack these days and if you do a good job raising your kids then you should have lots!
