Hi all. I just need some opinions on what to do. I am 13weeks with my second child and have not yet told my mother that I am expecting. My fiance and I have been together for 6 years and last year my mother caused an argument (my mother is very controlling and does things delibrately to anger others) with him. This is something that will not be resolved anytime soon. They are both SO stubborn! Needless to say, I know that there will be a whole lot to say (negative of course) on her end, and honestly...I dont want to hear it. I want to have her support but I am afraid that she will just c__p all over my happiness. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to tell her without letting her rain on my parade? I am showing already so it has to be soon. Thanks, Jen

I would tell her exactly what you said here. And if she is upset know that she will most likely get over it as it is gonna be her grand baby. It is a joyous thing having a baby!!

When I first found out I was pregnant, I was scared to death to tell my mom. I've been married for a year and a half and am 21 yrs old. She as well, can be very controlling. I also have a medical condition to where it'll make my pregnancy VERY difficult, so I guess I can kinda see where she is coming from. Anyway, when I told her, I was expecting to be hung up on, but I got this really LOUD happy shriek.. Moms reallllly do surprise you, Just make sure you're expecting the worst when you tell her. It sounds really pessimistic, but getting overly stressed over the situation will not be good for your pregnancy. Good luck!

Hi all. I 'm so sorry it took me so long to get back to you. I finally told her this past Friday. You guys were right, she didn't flip out! Oddly enough, she seemed rather excited. My son was with us, so I think that helped. ( Yes, I used my kid as protection. I know, I'm horrible!) Anyway, everything has been quite here, thank goodness. I feel so moch better. Thank you all for your advice. You guys are great! : )
