We live in the country and all our family/friends live in the city besides my mom&dad who pretty much live next door. Rather than the inlaws or close friends driving out here they expect us to drag a 3 year old, 10 month old and my 7 month pregnant self out there. I mean is that unfair? Am I being bitchy or asking too much that if they wanna see if they can inconvenience themselves rather then 2 children? I'm sure you know how crappy it is to mess up a baby's schedule... not good. Granted, they live about half an hour away but it's principle. My inlaws actually blame me for my 10 month old "not liking" them since she never sees them.

I think you are being unreasonable. Having children and being pregnant doesn't mean the world drops for you and people should do what you want because you don't feel like doing it. I have 3 kids and I know. It's really not that hard. We live in the city and family is out in the boonies. We have no problems driving there when we have too and they drive here too. Why can't you all take turns?

I think it should go both ways. They come to your house, then you go to their house. This is what I would say to them. "If you want to see the kids more, you know where we live".
