  • i think yes. that is your daughter and your baby and you and your husband are the ones that should have told her.

    Could there of been a mix up like she didnt know you were waiting to tell her? and why did you tell your mother in law if you were waiting wouldnt you want to wait and tell everyon so things like that didnt happen? NOT JUDGING JUST ASKING.

  • Maybe you should talk to her and ask her if she knew. And tell her how you feel about what she did. If you dont let her know when she does something wrong she is going to keep doing it. Believe me i know my mil is the worst.

  • I would be, but did the mil know you had not told your child yet? She may not have done it maliciously. Why did your mil know before your own child anyway? You and your husband should have kept it quiet from everyone until you were ready to let the good news out of the bag. Congratulations on the good news by the way. Don't let the bad timing of yor mil distract you from the joyousness of having a new munchkin around the house.

  • mine was the same way until i told her i wasnt going to deal with it anymore. now we see her like once every 3 months. her choice not ours i would like for her to see them more but she lives 2hrs away. Just talk to her and know you cant say well thats hubby's mom so he can do it you have too she wont take it like she needs to unless it comes from you.
