Haha glad it went well! It’s nice when people we don’t expect surprise us in a good way. Feel better.

glad it went well. Not sure which would be worse – the overbearing Mother-In-Law or mine. in 9 months the only reaction she’s been able to have in regard to her (one and only) impending grandchild has been:

1. She cant stand the sound of a crying baby

2. She doesnt understand why her friends at chuch all volunteer to babysit their grandkids

-and-

3. She doesnt plan to come to the hospital to see baby after he’s born and doesnt think it’s appropriate for us to have ANY visitors for at least the first month.

My Father-In-Law (they’re no longer married) at least bought us baby clothes (sure, they were girl clothes and we’re having a boy but at least he made an effort). MIL’s done nothing but be sour.

Good luck with the next 9 months. Guess we all have our crosses to bear. Hopefully, things will all work out for the best for you.

Just tell her. If she doesn’t like it oh well her problem. I hope yours isn’t overbearing like mine. She would put in her 2 cents about raising kids. Uggh!

@SweetartMD:  She probably doesn’t want you in her family. And I can probably see why…..

@NJatTheDisco:  Where did that comment come from? What a bizarre thing to say. I didn’t read that into OP’s post at all. She was venting about an over-dramatic Mother-In-Law.
