Grandma At 33 And Expecting One Of My Own

In May of 2009 my 16 year old daugh/ter told me she was expecting and is due in jan 2010.  I was only 17 when I had her so I know how scary it is.  She is keeping the baby which will be a girl.  In June of 2009 I found out that I am pregnant and due in feb 2010.  My other children are 8, 5 and 2 plus my step daughter is 9.  At first I was depressed about having a grandchild at such a young age and having my own child being younger than my granchild. Now, with alot of prayer, I have realized that God gives you the greatest gifts when you least expect it.  I still think this entire situation is wierd.  The hardest thing for me right now is so many people that try to judge me and I am one of those people who always tries not to judges others.  What do I say to the family members I have that have some mean things to say about myself and my daughter? If anyone else has a grandchild older than their child please let me know I would love to talk to be moral supposrt to one another.

My youngest daughter is 4 months old and my granddaughter is 20 months old. I know yours was an old post but if you still want someone to talk to...... I am a mother of 4 daughters Alyssa 21, Keera 15, Madisson 8, and Fiona 4 months. My oldest daughter has my granddaughter Ayla and yes the situation is a little weird but I wouldn't change anything.
