So I recently did a couple of pregnancy tests and both were a strong positive,at a geuss i'm around 7-8 weeks.I told my OH and he was excited and very happy about the news and there was no question about what we were going to do or if we were keeping the baby.We each have a child from a previous relationship when we were just teenagers,his daughter is 11 and lives with her mum and my daughter is soon to be 14 and lives with us.I am nervouse as it's been such a long time but I'm not a teenager anymore so I am getting a little confused and slightly offended by people who don't know me asking "oh what are you going to do then ? "ahh ok so your keeping it then and after me telling the doctor who I only just met today that I'm pregnant he asked me if it was a good thing? Should I be offended? has anyone else experienced this?

Hi, no please don't be offended about the gp asking you that. It's just something they do to ascertain how you are feeling about pregnancy. hopefully then he/she would've given you info about taking folic acid, stopping risky behaviours smoking etc and healthy eating and also point you in direction of midwife contact.
As for anyone else's negative comments. .I had alot of this (being pregnant now but also having teenagers). People delight in telling me how old I'll be when my baby is 18, that I'll be the oldest mum in the playground for example. I'm afraid I stuck imaginary 2 fingers up!! I got lots of support from my fellow 'due in December' mums who told me that as long as those that matter are happy (ie me, hubby and children) then who gives a monkeys what anyone else thinks! And they are right. I wear my bump with pride x

Thanku Sunny5 your reply is much appreciated and spot on I really should ignore any negativity,maybe I'm just being over sensitive.I've not even told my mum or brother & sister yet,I'm not sure what reaction to expect and they do like a good old gossip between them :/ they like to create drama and problems where there arn't any :/ I will definitely be waiting till I'm at least 12-14 weeks before giving them the news. x
