Why does my MIL keep implying that I am huge when everyone else says I look small for how far along I am?

Everyone but my MIL says that I'm just starting to actually look pregnant... she asked me today if I was sure my due date was right (I'm 28 wks)...
She is 71 yrs old... is this a generational thing or what?

  • Maybe she is jealous that she wasn't as small as you when she was pregnant? Lol I don't know, but I wouldn't put too much stock into it. As long as your baby is healthy, that is all that matters. :-) Congrats btw!

  • i think all MIL's can be nasty at times. My Mil didnt like what we were naming our son, her reasoning was that it was two long, too many syllables (her words) I was like umm.. its only 2 syllables, and your sons(my dh) name has 2 also

  • If she's anything like my MIL she's just spouting crap to sound important. Ignore her, that's what I do with mine.

  • Because she's a mother-in-law which almost by default = passive aggressive jealous woman.
