How do i handle my sister in law?

Do any of you have a sister in law who is so sweet on the surface but things she does just get under your skin??? My husbands sister who is two years younger to both of us, is that person in my life. I don't know if its because I'm right now pregnant and hormonal, but her attitude is getting to me! She is the sweetest person on the surface. She won't stop waxing poetic on Facebook about how her husband is the best ever. She and her husband both worked until recently, when she had a baby and decided to quit working. Mind you, this was only possible because she had just received a large inheritance from my (several years late) father in law, and two weeks later she decided to quit working. No problem, not my problem. Thing is, my husband pays their phone bills for the past year or two. Her husband will never offer to pay. Thats an easy near-couple thousand bucks a year that could be used for our family, and we aren't rolling in money, so... I discussed it with my husband who agrees its a little inappropriate that they never offer to pay, but that he can't do anything about it as she is currently not working and her husband doesn't seem to make too much. Then, she never gave us anything on our wedding (although she travelled halfway across the world for our wedding, when my mother in law paid for her and her husband's plane tickets, accommodations etc). She recently had a baby, and every time she drops off her baby at our place (twice so far) for us to babysit, I've given her a bag of baby stuff - nice baby stuff - as a gift. Never a thank you!! not even a text!! This is someone who can't stop sharing every little detail of her life on Facebook/instagram! How do i handle this? It is really starting to get to me now!
