I had my mom here last weekend with a friend of mine who is about 25 weeks pregnant. This was just before I got my BFP.
We started talking about having me having another baby. I'm not sure how that came up but my mother made a comnent that I wouldn't want my kids too closely spaced and asked where I would put a second child in our two bedroom place. It almost felt like she was discouraging me from having a second baby right away.
With Finn I told my parents when I was just over 6 weeks pregnant. We see them often so I can't hide it for long.
I ordered a t-shirt online for Finn reading I'm going to be a big brother. My mom's birthday is March 13th and I wanted to surprise her then when my brothers and sister are there.
FACEBOOK WON'T KNOW UNTIL I AM OVER 12 WEEKS.
What do you think?
I wouldn't worry about what she thinks, you're an adult, who can provide for your family. Her concerns are just Mum thoughts, I'm sure she will be happy and excited. The t-shirt sounds like a good idea.

Yeah I think she just made a comment based on her own experience. My older brothers are only 13 months apart and my mom told me how hard it was raising them that close, but that once she got into a routine and had them both on a schedule, it was fine.
I wouldn't worry too much what she thinks, although I'm pretty much the same way LOL. I'm sure when you do tell her, she will be supportive and excited for you. As far as the 2 bedroom situation...in my case, for example, the new baby will sleep in mine and Eric's room until she/he starts sleeping through the night, just like Athena did. When sleeping through the night happens, the baby can go in the same room as the older child. Even if they are opposite genders, it won't matter until they get a little older.
Yeah I did a while ago...but only to my mother, step father, Eric's mother and step father, and my mom told 1 of my brothers. Not everyone knows yet. I'm still keeping it off facebook, which is why you aren't on there. I know you would tell!!! LMAO, nahh just joking. Idk why we aren't on each others facebook. I don't know where everyone is on there. Are you on Maddies?
Aww I'm sure she'll be thrilled! There are up and down sides to closely spaced or widely spaced, you just have to decide what's best for your family. I wish Daniel had a sibling closer in age but it wasn't to be. Think of the benefits to Finn of having a playmate who'll be into the same things as him as they grow up. I'm sure your mom will think more about that side of things once she knows. I defy any grandparent not to get excited about a new grandchild!
