Ok DH and I have been married for a year(been together for 2) and expecting our first child together

DH was stationed here and his mom lives in NC

Well he is etsing and we flew her down because she wanted to help with the move

This is our first time meeting in person (we talked online all the time)

Well I'm at my wits end with her

We have invited her out to dinner with us and to dinner at my parents house and its all ways "no I'm good)

But when ever she is invited to dinner at his friend H's house she like "hell yea lets go"

I sat down with her and told her that it kinda upsets me that she does not want to get to know my family

She tells me "yea well if I had it my way my DS would not be with you but with H..... I like her better then you and idk why DS would chose you over her"

Yep that right there is when I'm done trying

It's honestly hard to even talk to her now

My DH says I'm overreacting and it's just the hormones..... Really? Ugh :-/

Tell her thanks for the honesty but he's married to you and she needs to get over it

I'd just stop talking to her at that point.  That's what I do.

Well, you are married now so she will have to get over it. Be civil to her, but I see no need to go out of your way to please her.

Don't pay attention to her. She is old and delusional. My MIL says a lot of crazy things like that, I just laugh and move on.

Nope not over reacting. I would have gave a smug "you know I'm going to be the one that has a pretty big say in who and where your grand child goes right?"

If that were my husband's reaction, I would kick him in the nuts.  You are his wife and he needs to remember that and put his mother in her place.  I know that once my child was born that his mother would not have access to the baby.... tell her you decided that you don't like her ... that your mom is a better grandmother so you don't want her around your child.
