My wife and I have been married for 3 years, together for 5, and my Mother has come around over time and has been supportive of us up until recently. I mentioned us wanting to try for a baby last year and she completely shut off. She said it was too "weird" for her and there was too much technology in something that's supposed to be natural. I tried telling her it was the same process as a straight couple would have to go through if they were having fertility issues but she just can't wrap her mind around it. I have a daughter from a college romance so she told me that we should just adopt, it's not like I haven't had the experience before. I should find one that needs a good home like people do with animals. I was completely appalled.

Fastforward to present time, we decided my wife would be the one to carry since she has never been pregnant and she is now 7 weeks along. We're ecstatic!!! Unfortunately, we can't figure out how to tell my Mom. My Aunt told me she mentioned us wanting an "artificial baby" so that makes us even more apprehensive. I refuse to allow her to treat our older daughter like gold and not give our baby the time of day because it's "artificial" or has no blood relation to her. Despite her close mindedness, she's still my Mom. I feel like the happiest time in our life right now is going to force me to shut her out of my life if she responds the way I think she will...

Any advice is greatly appreciated and welcomed
