i have a three year old daughter and a baby due in november. my husband is deployed and wants me to make sure i spend time with his family. i am all for going to see his family and leting them spend time with our three year old, but i have a problem his mom drives me crazy she is so emotional she cries all the time and always wants someone to feel sorry for her. it is hard enought for me to deal wtih my husband being gone and a high risk pregnancy, now i have to deal with her crying all the time. its not even the fact that he is gone that she is crying i mean we lived out of state for three years and she only came to see him once. any advice on how to deal would be helpful. i should add that she only cries when it is just us at her house if any one else is there she is fine.

trust me i know mother inlaws can be difficult, if you feel you need to speak up then do just know that she will be offended you need to make sure she realises that you are being effected emotionally

with a high risk pregnancy i would make her understand that you know she misses her boy but you do to and added stress is not good for the situation try to make her see that the thing to focus on is the new baby and the celebration on both of their arrivals
