I am 15 weeks pregnant and the past month has been the hardest in my life! I am student teaching, I have a 3yo son, I've had extreme morning sickness with this pregnancy, my husband has had a rough time with work lately, and we're moving into a new house. My MIL helps watch my son while I work sometimes (my mom does most days, plus she has her own business). MIL is retired and sleeps until noon most days. She has been backing out on watching my son a lot lately (doctors appointments and shopping trips) and has been constantly complaining about not feeling well or being so overwhelmed. Things like this usually don't bother me but I've had so much going on that it's starting to tick me off a little. I know that it's very fortunate to get free child care from her (when she decides to do it) but when I see what my mom does (watches my son, works, helps me with the move, takes care of my father, etc.) it really bugs me. It sounds to me like she is trying to back out before baby #2 gets here but I'm not sure, plus she's not the most confrontable person in the world and I could cause WW3 if I address this. What would you do? Also, would this bother you too?Answer Question

She may not be up for helping raising her grands or getting to heavy in that department. When my children were younger my mom told me "hey I raised my you do yours". I was not happy and broke nose until my grands.....five now.....came along. I am tired, sick and three of them are 11,11 and 12.....ugh!!!!!!!!! Now I am done, I raised mine they can do there's. Sounds yucky but I am being truthful.
