So my future MIL is in town along with my future SIL, visiting for the week from MA. Well there is already some tension with the future MIL because every time my FI and I get in an argument he goes running to her and of course all she gets is HIS side (naturally). My FI and I have a strict rule that we don't go to friends and family when we have an issue so that we maintain the integrity of our relationship and out of respect for each other. He broke that rule with his Mom about six months ago and I was furious with the two of them. It is one thing if she listens to him but another when she gives him "advice" on things she knows not the full story of. Anyway, he promised me it wouldn't happen again and he went and did it last week just a few days before she arrived. I was really upset with the both of them and basically had to swallow it since she was visiting. Anyway, she has only been to visit us once this entire week but has visited his brother three times already. Well then I overhear a conversation about "getting pictures done" so I ask my FI what that's all about. He says "Oh, I have no idea, Mom wants a picture of all the grandkids together and I guess she is making an appointment or something". I just say ok well it would be nice if I was included since she wants my two there as well as his four and I am the one who makes our whole calendar and would need to get everyone ready. I then get a message yesterday from his sister, "We have an appt at 1:00 on Saturday at such and such place at the mall". Not a SINGLE person asked me if we have plans, told me what they are to wear, etc. Not to mention that I do not have ANY "posed" photo studio/mall type pictures of my kids in my house because I just don't like them and neither do my kids. We have friends that are photographers and all of ours are very intimate, candid and not formal in any way. My son is 8 and has what is called "Hyper-Sensitivity" so he is not good at all with situations where he has to sit and be posed or in the spotlight which is another reason we don't do this. I just think it is insanely inconsiderate to tell me nothing then message me to be at some mall photo place a half hour from our house. Would anyone else be perturbed? I honestly don't even want my kids to go, it is just going to be stressful on me and my son but that will just make me the bad guy. UGH
I just want to wear a sign that says "I'm pregnant, I feel EVERYTHING, watch what you say!"One minute I'm laughing, the next I'm crying, then I'm angry, then I'm laughing again - and through it all, I keep thinking about how hungry I am.
WTF to the coworker who was finishing washing her hands when I was walking into a bathroom stall, and decided to have a conversation with me leaning against my stall door while I was trying to do my business. Lady, I'm pregnant, I ate lunch an hour ago, and I have got to poop! She finally walked out when it got awkward because wasn't flushing or making any noise.
