  • How about waiting until you're actually pregnant?
    There are no guarantees.

  • I wouldn't say anything until you know for sure that you are pregnant. I've done fertility treatment and stopped just short of IVF. It took a while.

    Good luck and I hope this is your only cycle!

  • I agree with the ladies. I also speak from experience. Tell her you are trying it but like the other ladies said, there are no guarantees. I wish you all the best though.

  • It would be a delightful gift to tell her of your plans.

    I do not want to pop your balloon but it may take a good long while or not happen at all.
    I wish you the best.

  • I'd wait to tell your mom till you get pregnant. IVF doesn't usually work the first time around.

  • I agree with the others. You can tell her you're undergoing treatments, but you cannot promise a grandchild in a two month time frame. It could take longer to get pregnant then you have to hope things don't go wrong once you are pregnant. You could say something like.. "Hopefully by this time next year we will both be celebrating Mother's Day."
