  • Let him tell her, its his momma. Its not what the momwants, its what the two of you want. I've found that alot of problems arise in a relationship when other parties such as parents are toooooo involved.

  • Respect your MIL and this is a decision between your hubby & you. Is your hubby dependent on your MIL? If no then tell her about your pregnancy. After all this has to be a couple decision & not anyone else's..

  • I never told my MIL I was preggo. My hubby told when I was like 3 or 4 months along...I told my own parents, and my sister. well, after I told hubby of course :) don't get involved in the drama. It's not her baby.

  • the way you are talking its like you have your mind set that you are going to tell her regardless of the drama is may cause. why not let it go and save yourself the stress and let her find out when the time comes....

  • Well.. It is important your not disrespectful even if she is being quite the child. Maybe he should tell her... He would probably know the best time to do it...
