I am 29wks preggo... this is my parents first grandbaby and my inlaws 2nd. My mother in law is CONSTANTLY buying things (very very grateful) but my mom hasn't been able to buy any of the big things such as: Crib, high chair, carseat, stroller, dresser, pack n play. My mom is feeling very left out and I am kinda feeling like she has been left out. I want to say something but don't want to hurt feelings. Also my mother in law is pushing to be in the delivery room... I am sorry but I feel like my mom and my husband should be the only two in there. She didn't give birth to me and I don't want her seeing my stuff. Am I being wrong for the way that I am feeling?? How can I involve my mom more?? She already goes to every appt with me. I just want my mom to be more involved than she is "being allowed". If I don't stop my mother in law now will it cause problems for the rest of our lives??

I'm so sorry. Now with the MIL being in the delivery room, it's your choice and that has to be respected. Maybe ask your MIL to stop buying things for the moment because you have other family and friends who want to share in the gift giving. I really don't know what else to say. BTW, only person I had in the delivery room was my hubby. I was to shy to have anyone else in there even my mother, lol.
