I just had the most beautiful shower this past weekend. My MIL came down early and had brought down three HUGE bags of things she's been buying for the last 8 months. She has also bought most of our nursery too. Now I am compleatly grateful and excited. But from the moment she arrived the rude and insensitive comments started to fly. Like "you look puffy"....or "I wondered at your wedding when you said your dress felt tight" or the girls mom aways gets the short end of the stick when it comes to the baby." Okay...Puffy?...I was taking finals all week...working full time and waiting up til 11pm for her to arrive...I have explained how our DD has come to be (on our honeymoon) but she insists that i was pregnant before and had become convinced of it since I have GD and she's measuring 2 weeks ahead. And with comments like these...why the hell would I want to be around someone like this? My mom is staying with us for just a week after the baby's born...that's it. Why would I not want my mom with me? So tonight was the best comment ...that we didn't prepare for this child and have no idea how expensive babies are. And holding the $3,000 she's spent so far over our heads. We never asked for her to go to this extreme! I'm almost 34 years old..and I think I have a good idea. I have lost all patients with this woman and with my hormones raging I don't think I could be nice once we have to travel to see them this thursday. Any suggestions on how to handle this? I have told discussed our conception date and how GD works but she is one that has to be right no matter what...and I think that is what is driving me nuts.
