I am 28. I have two children already. After my second was born she said first off when are you getting your tubes tied. I been with my husband for five years and he has a good job. My mom is the only one I worry about. She doesn't take pregnancy news well. She thinks I am crazy. Foolish to bring another child in this world. She then says she is fine and makes snide remarks later on. Like I was having Braxton hicks and she said well you put yourself in this situation. I think I am five weeks. I have an appointment later this month. I told my younger sibling and he was happy. My dad and in laws will be happy but my mother is something else. Last time I sadly told her in a text message explaining myself. She asked a couple weeks ago because she had a feeling and at the time I didn't know. She responded with okay you better not be.
Re: Need encouraging word to tell my mom
1. Unless you’re asking her for much support, you have nothing to explain. Don’t because she can construe it as you feeling like you do need to explain it to her. Your family planning is none of her damn business.
2. This sounds like she has some personal problems to work through. Whenever she’s pushing her buttons, try to remember that.
3. I don’t think it would hurt to get help in setting boundaries with her. She seems like she lacks respect for boundaries and you as an adult.
