  • Tell her when it happens she will be the third person to know,behind u and hubby! Tell her u understand her wanting grandchildren but u don't need the stress that she is causing u and hubby! Stress can actually make it harder to become pregnant!

  • Yes, I agree that stress can prevent you from getting pregnant, tell her this, so she backs off and go stress by herself.

  • I would say, "Ok MIL, our sex life is between us. It will happen when it happens, and don't worry, we'll let you know when it does!"
