  • Let her know that this pregnancy has you on edge and you could snap and kill her any moment.

  • i wouldn't worry about it at all sometimes M. in-laws are horrible... just remember that when your dh is buying her mother's day present better yet you do it for him.... make sure it's her fav. candy lol and birthday same thing and well christmas this year buy her a work out dvd..., lol since she's so worried about your weight maybe she should worry about her own....

  • My MIL did the same by saying, Oh I know you're having a girl cuz you've gotten so big. Mind you this is before the 4mos! It's hard to accept her stupidity, but she's gonna be around for a while : / and I've decided to limit the times I see her. She lives 20min away and watches my 2yo every Tues. I don't need to see her more than that! LOL!

  • Thanks ladies i needed the laugh and support i just couldn't believe that she's actually gotten more vile since that day saying i should stop eating or the baby would be obese (she said the same with DD after i got gestational diabetes she told me i would kill my daughter or she would weigh 10 pounds.....dd was 7lbs 5 oz chicks crazy)

  • I'd have rubbed her belly and said "Are we doing a 'father of the bride II' thing??? oh, no? oops...." the joys of being pregnant, be a b**** , blame the hormones!!!! :)

  • Wow first of all that sounds like a very invalidating and ineffective thing for someone to say to you, the second thing I'd like to say is that if you are pregnant you are obviously going to gain weight because you are carrying another the FACTS are that you are pregnant...the JUDGEMENT is that you are fat and this is not a fact....I hope that helps...also I feel sorry for the person who said that to you because it sounds like they don't really have a filter over their mouth and I'd imagine that because of that that you aren't the only person who has felt this way around them....I would let it slide off of my mind like an egg on a teflon pan and consider the source and then I would check the facts...hope everything works out for you....:)
