I don't know if I'm just really irritable or what, but my mother-in-law is driving me absolutely nuts with this whole pregnancy.
She insisted on coming to my first two ultrasounds, and even brought her mom to one, which wasn't too bad except that she didn't ask us if it was okay. I just had another one this past Wednesday, which my husband told her was just going to be the two of us, and she has been ignoring me since! She's also mad because I don't want anyone in the delivery room besides my husband and I don't want a million visitors, I want time alone with just my husband and my baby before everyone else wants to hold him.
I had my heart set on the name Hartley for my son, but all she does is put it down. We were joking around one night and said the name Sheldon (like from The Big Bang Theory) and she was like "Holy shit, that's worse than the other one!" The more she bashes the name the more my husband questions it. We are planning on having the middle name Mitchel after my boyfriend's bestfriend who passed away, but she texted me saying "Please name the baby Mitchel, it will fit him perfectly." I have nothing against the name Mitchel for a first name except that I feel like it doesn't fit him, which might change once he's born, and I've tried to explain that, but she just won't hear it.
The whole pregnancy she has to make little remarks about my size. Some weeks I'm too small and other weeks I'm too big. Then all of my symtoms she has little two cents to put in about.
AND the number one thing that drives me nuts is that she thinks we're gonna be leaving the baby at her house ALL the time. She bought herself a baby swing, a playpen thing, some clothes, diapers, and she's looking for a bassinet! She keeps making comments like, "You'll be lucky if you ever get to hold your baby." & "We're gonna steal the baby from you all the time."
I am sooo annoyed at this point! I've tried to talk to my husband about it, and he kind of understands, but at the same time he tries to defend his mom (which I understand to a point), but I feel like she's been going too far. Everyone is like "well it's just because it's her first grandbaby" but its my mom's first and probably only grandchild because she has pancreatic cancer and has only been given a year to two years and she completely understands what I'm saying!!!
Sorry for the rant, I just needed to get all of that out! lol
