My mom is 16 hours away. So I get that. The thing is, we talk a lot and for me that IS sharing the pregnancy experience. She is coming up around my due date and she did see me xmas (we come in town every year). Oh and we do google hangout and show baby clothes and books we all bought the baby. So I mean, yeah she isn’t helping pick out the bug stuff, like the crib, but my husband and I did that. Frankly the more people weighing in on those big items the worse. She knited her a blanket and it’s all coming up with her. So, if I were you I’d see if she could come for 1 big visit and 2- Do hangouts, or skyp or send picturers a lot.
Also btw, my OB did a quick scan at my 17 week apt and could tell gender and told me. My husband wasn’t even there. He found on out the phone after I left and he was at work and really it was fine. He came to the 20 week as planned and teared up and all that stuff. But it’s not really something you have to SEE, it’s more about ‘IT’s a GIRL!!” information.

I told my mum almost right away but haven’t really done anything extraordinary regarding my pregnancy for which I need to include her or anyone else. In fact, there are times when I actually forget that I am pregnant! (That was NOT the case however, during those morning sickness months.)
Point is, she’s your mom. She is already over joyed by the news of your baby. She’s going to be a grandma, hello!? You don’t need to do anything over the top to make her feel included. She already feels like that! So don’t beat yourself over it. If you want her to be with you during an ultrasound, then schedule one for her and you. My mum is at work during the time my ultrasounds can be scheduled.
