Wow… those comments are quite racist, ignorant and inappropriate.

Just ignore your MIL, she obviously has some seriously odd ways of thinking.

 

(And congrats on your pregnancy! yay!)

rand04:  Wow! That is incredibly ignorant. I guess she doesn’t know how genetics work.. Anyway, the darker the berry, the sweeter the juice. Your baby will be a beauty no matter what.

OMG that is just awful. My MIL thinks I should drink 2 dark beers a day, (starting now, 1st trimester) to help with milk production because I have small boobs. Oh and she thinks it is horrible that I sometimes drink mineral water and drink soy milk. You know because the carbonation in the water is “acidifying” and the soymilk, (which I only have in a a bowl of cereal), will give my baby man boobs or something. OK, whatever…

rand04:  that’s so bizarre! I’m 37 weeks and have been eating chocolate cupcakes regularly. I’ll let you know if it affects my baby’s skin tone lol. Congrats and ignore her!

What a psycho.  this is about as good as my MIL insisting that I’m infertile because I run, and my uterus must have fallen out already.

I would be less concerned about what you eat and more concerned with her blainant racism. What is wrong with having dark skin? All skin tones are beautiful!!!!!

What a peach! My DH has a saying “Don’t dislike any race/religion/orination because the moment you do, it will end up in your family.” I think every time she calls and asks what you are doing you should say eating dark chocolate and drinking black coffee.

rand04:  woh…. really??? she is absolutely crazy and clearly racist.

I would eat ‘lighter’ coloured food and strawberries whenever your around her during your pregnancy and then when you give birth send her a photo of the darkest skin toned baby ever thanking her for the advice she gave you.

What the actual fuck?….I’d talk to your DH about what her deal is, and why she’s making ridiculous racist comments.  What if your baby does have dark skin?  Will she not love it as much, or god forbid, say this kind of crap around him/her?  This is disturbing.
