I believe it was mentioned before somewhere on here but I am having some small issues with my husbands step-mom. I love that woman but she is geting pretty possessive over my pregnancy and this baby and I am only 8weeks. Thank god I currently live out of state but we are possibly moving before or after birth and we could be moving closer depending on where we get sent (Military).
My poor husband called last night to speak to his father and of course they share a cellphone. She picked up the phone and immediately asked about "Our" baby. Not about him or I as a person but about the baby. We havent even had out first appointment yet so I have no clue how the baby is. I dislike how she is calling it our baby as in she is included.
Hubby decided to point it out and I am very thankful he did but I have a feeling its not going to be that easy. She and him got into a little tiffle over it and she got upset. She claims this baby isnt just mine and husbands but the families baby so she has the right to say our baby. He shut her down and she finally handed the phone to his dad but he said she was still going on about it in the background.
I dont understand her thinking at all. My own parents and his mother are just happy and haven't really said much because well it's early.
She is making me feel very stressed and anxious. I don't know how to explain that I am very thankful that she will be apart of this childs life but in reality this baby is our journey not hers and when we need her help or advice we will certainly not hesitate to ask.
Any advice on how to approach her respectfully on this subject?
