where do i start.
My MIL was really nice when i first met her, now shes a nightmare, me and my partner found out we was expecting as much as my MIL was happy she couldnt help but feel left out and only went and had IVF until she found out she was pregnant we was unable to speak about babies it upset her cos she couldnt talk about it! Anyway her IVF ws succesful at 45 years old. She was happy until she found out it was a boy (mine was a girl) she was guttered which is selfish at her age id just be grteful it was healthy, well at any age for that matter! Anyway she was adament she would drive me to the hospital when i was having contractions - thinking nothing of it i said yes ok then. HOW WRONG WAS I! she completley ruined my birthing expirience talking to all the midwives about her soon to be baby, her birthing plan HER HER HER! i was having contractions whilst she was talking about baby names for hers! when my daughter was born everybody in the family naturally gave me and my partner all positive attention. Congratulations etc. she couldnt understand why she wasnt being congratulated, and kicked off throwing my daughters car seats around stomping and shouting a day after i had her. She reckoned it was a different matter but we knew it was the left out feeling as she had 3 months to go. Anyway we had obviously fallen out. She then went home crying(leaving me and my daughter stranded at the hospital) telling everybody me and my partner had shouted at her and ws horrible after all the trouble she went bringing us and money spent! Exuse me i told her to be quiet as my day old baby was sleeping and she was shouting! she has made out where liars and we fought back for our innocence telling her whats what and because wev had to be blunt about it nasty words have been said now she looks like the victim in all this and me and my partner look evil. i dont know what to do no more shes trying to turn my own family against me shes even threatened to make us worse off by getting a contract in her sons name as she has his details. shes made up terrible things about me putting it on facebook threatening to hurt me but nobody knows any of this cos she says it in person and then denies every bit of it and acts as the nice 1 who wants to make ammends she says if we dont make up with her her son is going out of her will, he doesnt care about her 1 bit after all the trouble and stress shes put us through! and its the talk of the community. anybody know what i can do about this?
