I think she needs to be told to butt out, but it may be more effective coming from your DH than from you (and possibly less hurtful too). If she’s this nosy and pushy now, I can only imagine how bad it’s going to be once your LO is born.

@Cem0930:  I think you should express your concerns to DH so that he can handle most of the nagging incidences whenever possible, but I also think you should stand up for yourself if she nags YOU about you or the baby. That being said, I personally wouldn’t deal with instances where she nags DH about himself.

Oh my – I am probably going to be in your shoes in a few years. I am getting married this year and my FMIL sounds similar to yours. She too, is always asking if my fiance has been to the dentist, the doctor, if he got the flu shot, if he put the snow tires on the car yet, if we took the snow tires off the car yet, if we have taken the dog to the vet, and on and on. I DO love my FMIL too, but sometimes I just get so annoyed. And my fiance is one to not make waves either.

I agree with the ladies about me. I think you should have your husband talk to her and (nicely) tell her to butt out.

@Cem0930:  I am in a VERY similar situation. We are having our first baby, a boy, this summer and my MIL is so convinced I don’t know how to eat the right things that they literally come by unannounced to drop groceries off at our house. I didn’t feel comfortable putting my foot down myself, but I impressed upon DH very strongly to do so. He still doesn’t think she’s over-stepping as I do, but we’re making progress.
