    I was only just 21 and had been with my partner for 4 months when we found out we were expecting. I was freaking out telling both of my parents. Because it was only a few weeks before that my Mum had said she didn't want to be a grandma yet. And my Dad, well what Dad ever wants to hear his 21year old is pregnant? In the end my mum was so excited, Dad took a while to come around - but they are both thrilled with their grandsons.
    I like River Song's suggestion!
    Good luck!

    I would just tell her. You are older now and in a different relationship/situation. She may be happy.

    I was so worried about telling my mum about my (100% planned) pregnancy, and was so shocked at how happy she was.

    But I understand your reservations. If you want to call, call

    I freaked out telling my mum too thinking her reaction would be horrible and didn't want to tell her for ages and definitely not as soon as I did but my dad and brother hassled me into it and so I called mum. It was a short conversation and then she just went away and thought about it.
    You're older now and in a much better situation so fingerscrossed she reacts better.

    Congratulations! I think calling is fine and may be a good idea. If she's not as supportive as you hope or starts to upset you you could always just hang up the phone.

    IMO your mum doesn't deserve much. Don't worry about her, enjoy your pregancy and life with your DP.

    A phone call is fine.

    Congrats by the way!
