So im 18 weeks pregnant and its the first grandchild for both my parents and my DP's parents so understandably they are quite excited.
We decided on names quite early and have always said we would find out the gender. We also made the decision to only share the names with parents and grandparents and for everyone else it was to remain a surprise for when Peanut is born. We explained this to MIL and she agreed. Great i thought!
Well no apparently not, tonight she proceeded to announce it to a room full of HER friends and some of my DP's family. Not only going against our wishes but also when a friend of hers pointed out we dont want it announced as yet she proceeded to say "well who cares they find out the gender next week anyway" as if that makes it okay.
Im pretty p***ed off as its not her news to share!
We are now contemplating not telling her the gender of the baby when we find out next week as it is also something we dont want shared with everyone till birth.
Am i being unreasonable or overreacting? I cant help but feel she has completely undermined our wishes.
PS she is also now trying to tell me how we should be set up for bubs and what to do and what she did and what is best for MY baby.
