Today, I told my parents I was pregnant. They yelled at me until I started crying. I'm 31, married, and I have a good paying job. FML

you're pretty much the definition of stability, why would they be upset about this? congrats on your baby, I'm happy for you.

Congratulations! Don't let your parents get you down. (:


How old were they when they were pregnant with you?

No kidding. I was married a year and a half, working full time as an engineer and had our first kid at 22. 31 is perfectly acceptable! Nothing completes your life like kids

That last sentence is subjective. Congratulations to OP though. I don't understand their reaction at all but luckily, it's your life, not theirs.

I honestly see no reason why they'd get upset. You're more than old enough to make your own decisions in life. Maybe they didn't expect you to have any..

Congratulations! Don't let your parents get you down. (:

If you're their only child/ first child to have a baby they might just be overwhelmed. Just give them time to let it sink in. Congratulations though :)

I'm pretty sure a negative reaction like that isn't because they are overwhelmed... That excuse doesn't work, you know?

Idk why you got so many thumb downs, but you have a good point

#4 has a point, up to a point. While its understandable that parents would be a little upset at hearing their baby is no longer a baby, yelling at your grown, married, pregnant daughter to the point where she starts crying isn't understandable. At all. You can have "Oh no! My baby is all grown up!" thoughts going on, but to vomit that much anger at someone who did nothing wrong isn't okay. I hope OP gets a hell of an apology for this.

They have no reason to yell at you. Congratulations on the baby (: That is wonderful news. I'm sorry they didn't see it as such.

They may have a (un)reasonable opinion of the father. I have no idea why else they would be upset for.

Their opinion of the father, unless he is abusive, needs to stay to themselves. Their daughter is a grown woman and can handle herself.

I don't know about that 47 , If i was a parent and my daughter got pregnant by a, lets just say, methhead, then I wouldn't be the happiest person. Now what OP's parents did was way out of line and shouldn't have happened, but they should be able to talk to their daughter about concerns/feelings

Congratulations on your pregnancy OP! I'm sure they'll come around when they see their gorgeous grandchild. If not then it's their loss!

You're 31 but you still can't use proper grammar? If you told your parents TODAY "I was" isn't what you should use. "Today I told my parents I AM pregnant." See the difference? Using "I was" makes it sound like you've had an abortion. Poor thing, it's sad that I'm fifteen and I know simple grammar rules but you're 31 and still don't. It scares me that you people are the ones running our country.

Take a chill, I know plenty of people from all ages that make that mistake. You're THAT ******* pretentious? I'm scared that YOU will be the one that's running our country. Please, go punch a wall to blow off that steam.

Using "was" in this case isn't wrong and your comment makes you sound extremely ignorant. So much for being 15, huh? Look up "reported speech" in your textbook.

Congratulations. You are officially more mature than your parents.

Congrats. My parents went ballistic when they found out my sister, 24 at the time, married & had good job was pregnant. I think they didn't realise that mummy's little girl wasn't so little anymore. Things turned around really quickly when the baby was born. She's still the favourite grandchild to this day.
