I feel like I will never get this. You wrote "Note that s'attendre à is usually used for negative expectations (i.e., I expect something bad)" but then "You're expecting some happy news" is "Tu t'attends à de bonnes nouvelles." Happy news is neither negative or bad.
This question relates to:French lesson "Attendre quelqu'un vs s'attendre à quelque chose = to wait vs to expect"
