Well I'm just interested if anyone else is in the same boat. My mum is driving me crazy while I am pregnant. I told her the other day that DH and I were keeping our baby's name a secret until she is born. Mum flipped out and demanded she know. When I told her we are doing this because we don't want to hear about everyone's criticisms, she bluntly said everyone will give them anyway when the baby is born. Now she is trying to remember what names I said I have liked and saying don't name the baby that.
She hasn't really shown an interest in me being pregnant and isn't particularly interested in how I am going, but is obsessed by when my baby is going to arrive and nursery items. I sorta feel hurt by that, I dunno if that makes sense??? I read about how parents are great support systems during pregnancy and after but I don't get that.
Anyway just wondering if anyone else has difficult mums out there? I know a lot of people have great ones, but I can't really relate too much to that.
