Im 18 years old, I live at home with my parents and my b/f lives with me. Im 17 weeks pregnant and I need some advice on how to talk to my mom. My family already nows that im pregnant and everyone supports me and is constantly buying me stuff, most of it I dont need. But the problem is that my mom is trying to control every aspect of the babys life. Its her very first grandchild so I know shes just excited. But shes telling me what to name the kid, telling me that im not allowed to take it out on walks, she picked out the color for the room, bought everything that goes in the room. Me and my b/f had absoulty no say in anything. Shes even telling me where and how I have to give birth and when I didnt listen she got mad. When I tried to talk to my mom about everything she just got mad and said I was saying she was controling my life and kicked my b/f out of the house and said he couldnt have anything to do with his child. Hes still here, we had worked everything out and things seemed to get better, but now shes back to doing it. Im just afraid that if she keeps acting this way she might push the farther away so that he doesnt want anything to do with this child. Any advice would really help...Thanks

Oh man. Way to go, mom.. Rolling Eyes
.I'm sorry she's being like that!
It's your child, not hers. I wonder if she understands that.
I wish .I had more advice to give you-
since you've already tried reasoning with her.
Keep trying to talk to her, maybe try to compromise.
She needs to understand that this is *your* baby,
&you have the right to make the decisions!
Is there any way you can move out with your boyfriend?

Were planning on moving out after the baby is born so that way we have the extra help if we need it. My friend thinks my mom is just going through a mid life crisis and wants another baby really bad. So maybe eventually things will get better, for now ill just try to talk to her when she says and does stuff.
