I hate my MIL...

Thanks to her I called in sick... I haven't taken a sick day off in months... I could scream on top of my lungs... She left, calling me a few bird names on the way out. What a bitch... I'm sick of her... I want her in my baby's life but she can't ever stand her...
She said I'm gonna be an awful mother, My DH's gonna leave me because I'm gonna get the size of a whale... My baby's not his...
Dude get over it I got pregnant (FROM HIM) I married your son, He loves me, I love him, been together for going on 3 years soon (in a relationship) I've been in your house god knows how many times until I got preggers you were fine with me... GET OVER IT dumb bitch been 3 months I got pregnant.. Ugh

  • If she is treating you that way. I wouldnt let her around the baby. Who knows how she will treat your little one. Your DH needs to stand up for you

  • Has she always been like this? Maybe she's stressed that her DS is at Basic. I wouldn't be worried about how she'd treat the baby, more about what she might say to the baby. Can y'all see a counselor? Unfortunately, you're stuck with her. And talking to DH might be an option, but you don't want to stress him out, either

  • Wow- I would tell her to stay away from me until she can talk to me like a normal person and not some psycho. You don't have to put up with people that call you names or put you down. Just shut her out. If she makes an effort to be better, then you can allow her to be around you and around the baby when s/he comes, but if she doesn't, I wouldn't. Good luck, Momma!

  • Sorry I've been there just let it roll of your back and kill her with kindness. If he loves you he wont leave you so don't worry bout that. My hubbys mom tried this shit in the end she pushed him away and I'm here and he doesn't talk to her. So it all worked out ok and she is welcome back any time as long as she realizes no matter what she says he married me.

  • I would tell her to stay away from you, my MIL is just as bad and that's how we try to handle it
