My husband and I are thinking about TTC...possibly starting late this fall/early winter.
My family is from the midwest and my husband and I just moved to the east coast. We're going to be here for awhile. At least a couple years. After that, who knows? We're pretty much living where the jobs/money are/is.
My mom is paranoid I'm going to get pregnant while living so far away. She wants to be around when I'm pregnant to help, answer questions "not be a stranger to your babies" - which all makes perfect sense to me and it would be great! However, my husband and I both feel like this is the right time in our lives to have a baby. We don't want to wait till we're living closer because we don't know when that will be! We could be moving to the west coast next, or south to Texas (where he's from). Now that we're thinking about TTC I'd love to share the experience with my mom. We're really close...except I know she'd 'frown' on the idea since she's so far away. This is such an exciting experience in our lives and I feel like I have to keep it a secret and when we DO get pregnant say it was an accident. It's just not right...
Any words of wisdom? I don't want to hurt my mom's feelings, but I hate to lie and say that our conception was a 'whoops!'
Anyone else have this issue?
