Re: Why does this have to be so hard?

Sorry you have to deal with this mama . Fact is she probably doesn' t deserve to share in your good news, but you'll probably feel better if you get it off you chest and tell her cause you obviously want to. You just gotta be strong in who you are and not let her bad attitude ruin your happiness. Just let it roll off. She can think what she wants and do what she wants, but so can you....(if she likes it or not)
good luck Don't let her steel you JOY

Oh and congrats on the new

Re: Why does this have to be so hard?

My MIL said "thats too bad" when dh told her we were expecting dd#1 (we had been married for 4-5mos at the time). She didnt say anything with dd#2, with dd#3 we had several late back to back m/cs before & when we told her at 9wks, she said "you know, MOST people wait to say anything just incase" so I told her, we want to enjoy this baby as long as we have it. We waited until I was 17wks pg this time to say anything.... her comment "I thought dh was getting a vasectomy after dd#3?) And at a later date, "you know, you have ALL these big career plans that you'll never get to do since you have so many kids." GEE thanks, didnt know I couldnt finish my Masters degree after having kids! Especially considering I finished my Bachelors after having 2 of them just fine, thankyouverymuch! I guess in her mind, you either have kids or a career, & careers just arent possible if you have more than the 1 kid she had.

Re: Why does this have to be so hard?

I would probably not say anything personally. My grandma is a bit rough when it comes to PG's - she's never had any bio children herself and doesn't get the whole pregnancy thing - thinks it's such a huge hardship for women to bear children. This time around, she has dimentia so badly that telling her wouldn't be worth it and might upset her when she is lucid, so we opted not to. Good luck, btdt with family who don't agree with what we do as well.
