Over the Easter weekend i introduced my boyfriend to my mother. Now the meeting went very well but during our visit at my mothers house some topics came up. Me and my mother have never really had a great relationship. Actually my mother has been bothering me since i was 19 with having a baby. Now at the age of 23 im actually wanting and feeling the need to have a baby. But like i have told my mother so many times before i will have a baby when im ready and when i have found the "right one" Well just so happens that i feel that i have found the right one. Now marriage isn't really a thought right now cause i don't want to get married actually i don't think i will ever want to get married. But that is a different conversation all together. But it just so happens that while we were at my mothers she brings up the baby thing in front of my boyfriend. Little does she know that i have already been discussing this with him for some time and we have decided to really try to have a baby. I don't want her to know cause i don't want the stress of my mother to be on me about getting pregnant when im already stressed out enough. Stress wont help me get pregnant. Anyway i just told my mother to drop the issue and that im not sure what is going to happen in the baby department. I think my question is should i tell my mother that i am activly trying to have a baby or should i just wait until im pregnant before i tell her anything?

there is no rule that says you have to keep your mum informed as to what is going on in you life, You do what you are comfortable with and you know her so do what is best for you, You are an adult and accountable to no one, your mother needs to respect this, and not try to have you fill her needs,
