I am pregnant with my 2 baby and am 19. My parents were very supportive with my first child. I have not been visiting them lately because I want the baby to be a surprise. They wanted me to have another child so they won't be mad. My mom called me today and asked me when I was going to visit them. I said on her birthday which is going to be four days after the baby is born. I feel like my mom is mad at me for not visiting her. Any advice???

Angela: Überraschung (suRprise) there arent only english speaking moms on CoMs :) i bet your Swissgerman spelling wouldnt be as good as mine.

why don't you surprise them while pregnant? Won't they be upset if you went through an entire pregnancy without telling them? I know my mom would be very hurt if I did that.

You guys rock. She had the best birthday ever she said. She is such a gift help and supports us so much. The biggest shock is my 22 year old sister came in just to celebrate with us and meet little Quin. She is pregnant with her 1 child and is relying on me.(such a difference then when growing up, I relied on her) she keeps saying this and that but I am happy for her. Ttyl!!!

So you already had the baby? If that's the case then I understand not going anywhere 4days after giving birth. You should stay home and rest for at least 2 weeks and tell your mom! I would be honest honey!! Maybe like surprise I'm pregnant! But not "surprise here's my newborn"!

Thanks for all your help guys! I told my mom and she was very happy for me and my boyfriend. Actually I went into labor the Sam day I posted this and told her! Good thing you guys said to tell her because I have no idea who would've watched my two year old Rosie. My mom stayed the night to watch over Rosie while daddy was at the hospital with mommy. The baby was born healthy and strong and his name is Quinten Mason Andee. My mom said that was the best birthday present ever!! I am still buying her a normal present though. I should be out today or tommarow morning.

Honey, I don't have a problem with your spelling.

I just notice stuff like this! A mis-spelled word jumps out and does a dance. Likewise grammar & punctuation errors. My pet peeves are the misuse of apostrophes.

If i would have to proof read before publishing everything i write i wouldnt be writing at all,i would be spending the whole time researching if every word i type is spelled right. Well i guess you still understood that suprise was ment to be surprise so thats what counts.
Sorry that you have a problem with my spelling.

I'm sure my Swiss/German spelling WOULDN'T be as good as yours, Gena W - but this is a Forum where we're communicating in English. I really wouldn't know where to start with Swiss/German spelling! If I had to use it though, I'm sure I'd proof-read before publishing.

I accept that not everyone on here is sitting in front of a desk top computer - some make their posts swiftly from phones.

OK, the baby's due 4 days after your mother's birthday. Doesn't mean it's going to be born on that exact day! Might be late and you'd be visiting your mother still pregnant!

In case of this happening, I would seriously think about telling your family before that date. I would also arrange a gift for your mother in advance - so her birthday's not forgotten. What if you are in labour on that day?

Amarylis Dutton. You were the only one who spelled "SURPRISE" correctly. Well done!

I agree with Amarylis Why would you wait till the baby is born to suprise them?Why not let them know you are pregnant?I am sure they would love to enjoy the pregnancy with you,It would be a big suprise if you only let them know when the baby is born..but i cant garanty you that it will be a positiv suprise..they will want to know why you didnt tell them and maybe be upset.
