Wouldn't you be upset?

Since my mother in law found out I was pregnant she was upset. Instead of congratulating me or her son, she told me that it was to soon. Ever since then she never asks how Im doing or how the baby is. On easter her and my sister in law said they would set up a baby shower for me and NEVER did it. She always complains about her son and takes things from his past(when he was 13-17) and how awful he was. She never talks about anything positive when it comes to my family. Is it wrong to be upset? She dosent do this to any of her other children. My husband is a great man and we live a healthy Christian life. Wouldnt it upset you?

  • Just ignore them, and if they are always negative, keep the baby away till they can talk like adults.

  • I'd do what we did, severe ties. Your child doesn't need that type of person in his/her life.

  • Wow, I wonder if your MIL is a clone of mine or something. Yes, I would be upset and I would just stop going around her, no reason to put yourself through that.

  • maybe she's ashamed of how her own daughter acted and that makes her feel like she can't be happy for you? so sorry :(
