Well I am 8 months So everyone is so happy for me well that is everyone except my aunt. She is in her 40's and she has been trying to have a child for as long as i could remember but nothing seemed to work so when she found out I was pregnant I could imagine how she felt.She was so upset and I could tell by the way she stormed around the house saying mean things about me behind my back.Saying that I am young at first I thought she was just being the person she is until she told me that she think that she would make a better mom than me and if I wanted to give my baby up to her because she is more prepared.She has been really asking me that a lot and she even started making a nursery at her house and bought lots of baby things.I think she is crazy but we all have crazy relatives but I think she is over doing it.I don't want to hurt her feeling but I think my feelings are as much as important as hers....Answer Question

I think I'd restrict her from visiting you and the new baby when it arrives (CONGRATS btw)..She sounds like one of those women who kidnap newborns and try to pass them off as their own. Being pregnant, all your hormones and your emotions are on edge. It could be a little of that playing out in this, but your aunt sounds a bit 'off' to me by the way you describe her. Just distance yourself. No need to add unnecessary stress in your life right now. Not good for you and it surely isn't good for the baby! And if the snide comments irk you, hand them back to her! No reason for you to take that kind of treatment just because she has issues with your being pregnant and her NOT being. It's HER issue...let her own it. You just concentrate on making a healthy baby and let her deal with it the best way she can. The next time she says something about giving her the baby, ask "What? You think it's a PUPPY or something?" Good luck!!
