And she told me I should have had my tubes tied 3 kids ago. I don't know whether to be slightly offended or very offended lol. I knew she would be rude about it, but who says stuff like that?

wow what a ***** - sorry but I don't get who can't be excited for a baby.

If it didn't mean you wouldn't be here - I'd say I'm sorry someone allowed that lady to get pregnant.


I'd be offended and annoyed.

I must have pregnancy brain already because I had to read that several times to understand haha. My reading comprehension is apparently not so great today.

I knew she would be awful about it. She has been like this for each of my pregnancies and I always dread telling her. I always cared so much about what she thought until I realized how depressed she made me and now I keep my distance. I am very annoyed. I think she's hurting herself more than anyone though cause I am her only child and this is her last chance to get it right!

Oh my gosh, that is terrible. Your mother should be your greatest support system now. I'm so sorry you got such a negative reaction.

I'm so sorry your mom sucks!!!

Unfortunately, I know all to well how you feel. My dad's side of the family is super traditional and conservative. Needless to say, they do not approve of me having a kid out of wedlock...imagine their reaction when I tell them we are about to have a third and STILL have no wedding date anywhere near the future! Lol I may not tell them at all and just see how long it takes them to notice.

That's so rude! Tons of women have huge families, that's not unnormal, so I don't understand why that would be an issue at all. I'd love to have that many kids, but my husband would kill me. Try not to let it get to you. We have to remember parents are people, too & they can be wrong.

What a wonderful comment that was coming from a mother to her only daughter People are disgusting sometimes. I'm sorry you had to hear that and I hope it doesn't make you any less excited than you should be

I am sorry. I know my mom is praying I get my tubes tied after this baby, but it is not and never will be her decision I will stop having babies when I feel like my family is complete. But it definitely is hard not having a lot of support. I am very sorry

What a mean thing to say!! My mom is supportive, but the baby's dad's family actually asked him if I was really pregnant and was he sure it was his. They think I'm making stuff up to trap him. Thank goodness I don't have to talk to them.

I hope she comes around and is more supportive soon!!

I'm expecting a response like that too, that's why we just aren't telling.

Ugh, so sorry, Nicole! I can't believe she would say something like that, no matter how she really felt about it!

Ugh I am sorry, I dont understand how a mother could not be happy for there child! As a mother myself, I think whatever makes my children happy then Id support them! We have not told anyone yet, only one that knows is my twin sister which she kinda figured it out.. but Im looking to get a few responses that arent in my favor and honestly I dont care! We take care of our kids, we never ask for help with we manage on our own.. we look at it as they are our children and our responsibilty so if we wana have 20 thats our business!!

Gee whiz! I'm so sorry you don't have that support from your mother. I was expecting a similar response from my mother since we don't have that close mom/daughter relationship. I was pleasantly surprised. I didn't get that "Praise Jesus" response like with my MIL but nonetheless, I had her support. Hopefully she will come around!
