I'm kinda mean... Last year I had a preggie friend take a pregnancy test for me. I was going to leave it on the bathroom sink and watch my bf freak out. He has one kid already and I don't want any. I decided not to at the last minute. He woulda been really peeved.

What's up with people debating language rather than intent on here lately? Anyways... adjectives have a wide range, yes. For instance, ALL of these are yellow:

Come on! It seems like some of these responses are awfully sensitive!
Playing jokes on people is the point of April Fools Day! It's meant to catch people off guard and I think it's a good one!
And if the OP's daughter is due in November, it's not like this is going to send her into labor or anything!

I think if anyone knows how her DD is going to react, it's the OP. I'm sure she wouldn't do it if she thought her DD would be devastated.

I'm not a fan of April Fool's jokes and know that I wouldn't even have believed anything that I'm told on that day.

If anyone calls me or sends me a message on April 1st relating to vacations or my parents visiting or kids flunking class or something, I'd just ignore it.

I've put rubber snakes in various places around work before. You can get them at the Dollar store or Walmart. It really is fun!!

Definitely not something I would ever do to anyone. I am not into doing something that takes it that far and sets people up for disappointment.

I guess somehow I missed YOUR answer to the OP's question in this post.

That's what I'm thinking. Cruel? The OP's prank idea doesn't even register on the "cruel" scale to me. I'm sure she wouldn't do it if she didn't think that her DD could take it. And what is it with everyone saying that she shouldn't do it because her DD is pregnant? I certainly never felt that fragile when I was pregnant.

The # she is to call spells out April FOOL

The real killer tho is DD is pregeo an due Nov 10th so travel will be difficult.
To me this is only funny if, YOU are giving her a trip to WDW. For there to be no trip at all just seems MEAN.

I like practical jokes, but I don't think this one bit funny. I think it's mean.

I think that's really nasty. Sorry, OP, I don't mean to be offensive, but that would really upset me if my mom did that.
