This afternoon, I went to a wedding shower for my Cousin-In-Law. I did not want to go anyway. I'm never a big fan of showers, I just find them to be a little boring (except for the food), but I went out of obligation, I guess, and to be a nice family member. This was the first time that I've seen the in-law side of the family since telling my MIL and FIL we're expecting, and of course EVERYONE already knew. I really haven't told many people, but whatever. I have a baby bump now, there's really no hiding it anymore.
So, we're doing the usual shower things, getting food and cake and stuff like that. Then, I overhear my MIL, across the table saying to someone I don't even know (really loud, mind you. She's already had a few mimosas within the first 30 min of being there) "I THOUGHT I WAS NEVER GOING TO HAVE ANY GRANDCHILDREN [she then looks over at me]. I thought I was going to be stuck with grand-dogs" Then she starts laughing hysterically. At that point, my face is purple from embarrassment. I just got up and walked away because I knew if I said something, I was going to go off and probably never be welcome in the family again.
My husband and I had one MMC and that was devastating for both of us. We tried for a whole year to get pregnant before the MMC, and then tried for another whole year after the MMC and then had to visit an RE to get pregnant with the baby I'm carrying now. She knows ALL OF THIS. She knows how hard it has been for us. I just hate people so much sometimes. The funny thing is that my husband and I just had an argument about the rude stuff his mother says to me right before I went to the shower because I was dreading going for that exact reason. She has diarrhea of the mouth and does not think, or just doesn't care who it affects when she says stuff.
I have no plans on visiting my in-laws for a while. Stuff like that is hurtful. Thanks for reading. None of this is abnormal for my MIL, so I guess I should just expect it, but it really bothers me.
