I am 35 and have a gorgeous 9 month old daughter. She truly is light of my life.
Anyhow it found out a couple of weeks ago that I am 4 weeks pregnant. It was a planned pregnancy and my husband had discussed how we only wanted a small gap between our 1st and 2nd child.
I have always been an honest person and the thought of lies and deceit make me feel sick. I told my Mum, when I found our and all she said was I thought you were and put the phone down. She is not one bit happy about this and I haven't heard from her since. I never wanted her to find our through somebody else. I have tried phoning her 4 time sand she won't even pick the phone up.
I know she didn't want me to get pregnant and so soon, but we decided it was what we wanted to do. She even told me, we should bring our 1st baby up properly first.
I know I'm hormonal and pregnant but this is really upsetting me and I just don't know what to do.
Errm....What on EARTH has this got to do with your mum??? I actually can't believe she would even dream of making any comment at all other than 'congratulations'! She sounds like a complete nightmare and I would totally ignore her childishness and tell her she has absolutely no right to pass comment on anything you and your DH decide to do.
Being a mother (you or your mom) is never easy - sometimes becos we are close and family we say things according to our mood, we think later. We act on how we feel immediately becos we are family. Go easy on your mom, what goes around comes around - before you know it, you too will be having heart to heart with your little ones and they will not always agree with u or see we're you are coming from. Give her sometime and also give yourself sometime it is not easy being pregnant with a 9 month old - planned or unplanned. Sometimes kind words make all the difference and let's not be proud about who loves who more. I always have episodes with my mom :-), but she is my mom and I will not let a soul say a bad word about her (maybe just me :-)). Hope everything sorts itself out - in the time being try and enjoy being pregnant, and teething, and new foods, and new words, and all the wonderful milestones of your little one. X x x o x
