I am in my 9th month of pregnancy and my husband and I just found out last week that due to complications of the pregnancy I will need a c-section, need to stop working, and be put on bed rest. My husbands mother planned a family camping trip for this past weekend (beginning of the 9th month) midway into this pregnancy. She has made it clear from the beginning that it would be understandable if I can't make it, and that my husband should go with his children from a previous marriage even if I can't. She has let us know for several occasions that it is perfectly acceptable if only my husband can make it to her events. I feel that this pregnancy with it's complications should be the responsibility of both myself and my husband. My husband decided to go on the vacation with his mom, sister, and kids. They are 4 hours away and have very inconsistent cell phone reception. I explained to my husband that I didn't feel that this was fair to me and left me feeling very anxious if something happened with the baby. He seemed to feel that he owed it to his mom to be there as they have had these plan set for a few months. Should I be upset?
