Venting About MIL

troubles with MIL - January 23

My MIL never really cared for my husband, me and our daughter. Sounds bad, but we have always gotten the cold shoulder and ridiculed about things. Well, we told her last week that i am pregnant again and she never congratulated us, nor has she called to check on us. when my BILs wife was pregnant, MIL was the roving reporting, knew day by day how she was doing. I am overreacting or is it just hormones?

I think the mere fact that she did not congratulate you is sad. As for check-ups, that is icing on the cake. A simple "congratulations" was probably due, in my opinion. She must have some issue with you, or your husband. Involve her as little as possible so she will not have the chance to cold shoulder you. This is the perfect time to put those nasty prego hormones to work. Who better to get the brunt of it than the mean MIL, lol??

I am in a similar situation, because my husband is the only boy and has two sisters his mum dad and one of his sisters dont seem to even care about the whole thing. I dont let it get to me because my family are making up for all their excitment anyway. Just let is slide off your back because the more they up set you the worse you will feel and its a happy time!

Thank you guys for the support. And yes E, she does have a problem with both my husband and I. We dont know why. My DH was in the Army, she met me one time before we moved down here. She insisted on us living with them, and she has treated us bad ever since. We have put her in her place a time or two, but she blames us. But never gives us a reason for her behavior. But you are right, I need to just forget about it. And be happy. We didnt have this baby for her. Thanks...:)
