So things have been a little rough lately. My SO got hurt at work and was let go cause he was out for two weeks and couldn't lift a certain amount. He has been looking for a job everyday. But no one is really doing anyone hiring. So my mom has been helping me out with small things I need til I get paid. But I know she is notgoing to be super thrilled when she finds out I am pregnant again. I was hoping if it was a girl I could surprise her for Easter. Since she already has 3 grandson. I don't like hiding things from her and I feel guilty. What would you do ?

I would just tell her. The worse that could happen is some criticizing.

Your idea about telling her at Easter is cute. Will you know by then what you are having?

In regards to job search, the website indeed.com is a great job search site, because it pulls from all other search engines, so you don't have to look at multiple sites. Good luck.

 I don't tell those who aren't going to be thrilled.  But, perhaps, she will be excited for you?  Good luck!

Congrats! Surprise babies are always a little stressful, but I'm sure your mom will come around. 8)

My mom loves all my kids even if some was or wasn't planned. But I know how my mom can get... And sometimes she can be very hurtful. Cause since i had my 3 yr old she has been fussing about getting my tubes tied. That is why I am a little nervous.

I am having a surprise baby also! I waited to tell my not say supportive family until after 12 weeks to avoid any uncomfortable "get rid of baby" talk. I only told immediate family at that time I told friends and other family when I found out gender which was awesome because I have girl,girl,girl BOY!! It did make things more smooth people would say oh you got your boy instead of are you done yet...! Hope things get better for you soon!!
