You're 30 ... an adult ... who cares what your mom wants?
Or are you still living with her, and expecting her to take care of your kids? Because if that's the case, you should move out - and get your baby's daddy to accept his responsibility of taking care of his family.

If you are 30 .. you should be acting like a responsible adult by now ... Sounds like you might have to work on that.
Don't think for one minute just because you are 30 that your mom isn't still going to be a mom. Mom's NEVER stop caring and worrying about their children even when they become adults. She is probably very concerned about your being able to care for another child. My guess this is not about 'control'...This is about concern.
If you are 30 years old, it would seem to me that your mom should really have no say how many children you have! If she has that much control on your uterus, maybe it's time to re-assess your relationship with her, and cut the apron strings already!
This isn't her responsibility, problem or business. She should be playing the role of doting grandma if she earns the right to it. Have you abdicated your rights and responsibilities as a mother here? Do you two have some problems with boundaries in your relationships? If so, you may want to get help with that quickly.
That's weird because by the time your 30 your mom should be enjoying her grandchild and wanting more. I can only assume your not married at this time or settled. Otherwise, why would she not want you to have more kids? Either way it does not matter at this point since your pregnant, just be honest with her.
