I'm almost 18 weeks pregnant and numerous people are making comments on the things I have purchased and how much we have spent. As if we don't deserve to spend that on our baby Why didn't I just get a pram from target or just get a second hand cot etc...
It isn't as if we went overboard! We got a cot, bassinet, draws, change table pram car seat.. The pram I got was more expensive because I walk everywhere due to no medically not being able to get a license.
Whenever I get one little thing like a jump suit or something my MIL goes "how do you know it will fit the baby"... "You don't know how big it will be". I'm starting to get really insecure and want to return the whole lot! (We live with her).
We are putting a deposit on a block of land this weekend and so many people are going 'ohh how can you afford that'. Well because we suffer by living with my MIL and don't pay full rent. By suffer I mean we are fortunate enough lol i'm just grumpy I would love to be able to rent our own home, spend the first few weeks with our baby on our OWN and have nobody interfere.. But instead all I am receiving is negative comments from everyone We budget somewhat.. DP works 5-6 days a week and we don't do anything
Sorry for the long rant but I'm really over it!
