By pregnant loser apparently - United States - Franklin
Today, my parents posted on Facebook that they were excited that my sister was pregnant and couldn't wait to be grandparents. Last week I told them that I, a 33-year-old happily married woman, was pregnant and they told me I was ruining my life and encouraged me to have an abortion. FML

She said she is a 33 year old happily married woman? How in the hell does that make her a teenage delinquent?

23, the "too" in 1's comment was not implying that op was a delinquent and that the sister was too. It was asking if op's sister was a teenage delinquent and pregnant.

In my opinion there's nothing more important than being a mom. Just because someone is a mom, it doesn't mean they're a stay at home mom. They can still do a lot with their life.

"Higher expectations" EXCUSE ME! You make it sound as if being a happily married adult that is expecting a child a bad thing. Becoming a parent is a wonderful thing. The irresponsible , people in this world give parenthood a bad name. If a person is an adult, responsible and self sufficient and not asking for handouts or welfare.....then I say it is their own damn business and great for them to become parents. Pregnancy isn't a low expectation. It's all about the circumstances surrounding the pregnancy.

what's wrong with being a stay at home mom? I am a stay at home mom, and am very glad I get to spend all day with my son. I don't have strangers raising my son and I don't have to miss his milestones.

Nobody is saying parenting is a bad thing, cool down. And with you saying about the situation, I don't think that's true. It's what you make of the situation. Some well off people with stable jobs and are of age are terrible parents. Some young teenage unemployed people can be amazing parents.
Being a parent is a wonderful thing, but perhaps OP has situational variables that mean that a child right now wouldn't be right. Perhaps it's concern, or perhaps they're just dicks

They might not like your husband; or think your or both of your careers or financial position isn't steady enough for a child?
If not or then obviously they do have a favorite and if it were me I would consider not letting them see my child after they're born

Whatever their reason was for saying that, they were clearly disrespectful to you. You're married and you want a family, what's wrong with that? Unless you and your husband cannot afford to have kids, and still.
Take my word for it OP, some people are not worth your troubles, even if they gave you life
