    Default SH!T my MIL says

    My MIL (& SIL) told DF that we shouldn't have told them we had an ectopic pregnancy because it upset them and ruined their day - amongst other nasty things such as, because the baby wasn't planned & we aren't yet married, it was a blessing.

    Needless to say, DF didn't speak to his mother for months & still doesn't speak to his sister.

    MIL has started telling DD (3yo) that her manners/behaviour is WAY better than her two elder cousins. So of course now DD has started repeating what she's been told, IN FRONT OF cousin 1 & 2. Yeah, it's awkward.

    Wow ChelleBH... Your inlaws sound like mine! Nasty pieces of work!

    I had an ectopic pregnancy requiring emergency surgery. My sil and I were pregnant at the same time! (She was a month ahead of me) My mil piped up after my surgery and said "oh it wasn't meant to be...at least it happened to you and not (sil) K!"

    To say I was infuriated was an underestimate!

    wow!!
    did she mean it that way? or is it that SIL struggled to get pregnant? or it was their first kid and not your first?

    not that it would make her comment any less terrible and heartless than it was but just wondering where that comment came from?!

    maybe pure nastiness

    Wow.....I am completely gob smacked at the MILs you have to put up with.
    My MIL is no angel, but she certainly seems like it in comparison to most of yours.
    This is not about my MIL, but her MIL, so my GMIL. My FIL is the only son in his family, so he is the "Golden Child", no woman was ever going to be good enough etc. they have been married for 35 years, and just a few years ago they were having a disagreement about something (I can definitely say it wasn't an argument because my MIL is a passive person) and she told my MIL to go back to where she came from! She meant it in a racist way, but had forgotten that my MIL was actually born here, so she said "what, back up my mums vagina?" It was the funniest thing ever!
    When my DD was born she didn't make it down to the hospital for a visit, so a few weeks after, my MIL invited her over for dinner where she proceeded to ask us why we hadn't chosen a prettier name for DD!
    She constantly belittles my MIL about not being "smart" and talks up her daughters and how smart they are. Her "smartest" daughter is a librarian for Christs sake (that statement in no way means that I think librarians are dumb, I'm pretty much just trying to say that none of her kids are brain surgeons or anything).
    I could go on, but my fingers will get sore with all the typing.

    Hugs to all of you putting up with horrendous MILs.
