That is a pretty unkind thing to say to you. I think that people who haven't gone through this really don't understand fully what it feels like.
I told my parents before I told my brothers, and my parents were very supportive. However, my mom told me that at Thanksgiving my brothers had been guessing when I would have another baby and that they all agreed that I wouldn't get pregnant again for at least two years because they thought I was "responsible." sigh. Also, I keep getting hints that some family members disapprove of my decision to have a scheduled repeat c-section, even though both my MFM and my OB have advised me that it is the safest option for me. They never flat-out tell me they disapprove, but they keep asking me why over and over again. It's totally frustrating.
