    Good luck with the impending visit.
    OMG I hate this passive aggressive stuff. What did you say to her?

    When DH told MIL I was pregnant (at like 18 weeks or something as he was so anxious about it!) all she could say was we were too young and rushing into it wouldn't be able to afford it. Then proceeded to "well I feel no connection to you or the baby because you live so far away and never come to see me". We are 25 and 26. We've been together for 7 years and both have careers. We were ready for a baby. She is also free to visit us whenever she wants. I'm won't however use my annual leave to visit her instead of my parents again, after last time when she cracked it at us for being stuck up (wth) and decided she didn't want us to stay with her and then didn't talk to us for a day and a half until we left (2days early).

    I like my MIL, but she is very religious and of a different generation. She once told me all Gay people were sinners and were going to hell. One of my best friends is Gay and he was a groomsman at our wedding so I was pretty upset by that. Grrr.

    Constantly referring to DD as her baby. "oh look its my baby, you are arent you? Yes you are MY baby" yeh **** off.

    Mind you while pregnant everyone spoke about the possibility of DD having red hair. MIL response "ew yuk no grandchild of mine will have red hair" with the horrid disgusted noise and look to match. Not once but EVERYTIME someone brought it up. Well DD has red hair

    Yeah that's just wrong 😈

    My mil was sort of thrilled to here my dd had intolerances and couldn't drink my milk. It's just sad! Why why why!

    My MIL is generally really good. But the one thing she does that really bugs me is that she doesn't believe that DD's food allergies (dairy and egg) are real or should be managed by an allergy specialist - "back in my day we didn't have all these food allergies. We just gave the baby the food until they got over it." I think she thinks I am just being a precious first time mum.

    She brings it up everytime I see her. For example:

    " when are you going to reintroduce eggs?"
    "surely one piece of garlice bread won't hurt?"
    "aww.. poor thing is missing out. Can't she just try a little bit of ice cream/cheese/chocolate?"

    And this happens even though she once gave her food that DD had a nasty reaction too! It drives me crazy and makes me so nervous when the in laws babysit!

    My MIL has had some beauties.

    Main one was when she found out we were pregnant she invited herself to be in the delivery room. Then said she would come and stay two weeks before DS was due and two weeks after.

    She then invited my step mum to be in the delivery room as well 😑 my stepmum straight out said no way. I've had my kids it's their turn to enjoy becoming a family.

    Safe to say DP told her it was not going to happen. She wasn't here for DS birth or after. She didn't speak to us for months due to other problems and only got to meet DS when he was 8 weeks old.

    I'm really lucky with my in laws all around. Seriously lucky

    I can't believe some of these. They're not even funny, just seriously rude.

    Thumbs up to all of you who have managed not to smack these hideous people - multiple times!!!

    Yeah I'm so glad I don't have a mother in law to deal with, may she R.I.P but I never met her so never had to deal with it. Did on my ex's side and she was horrible. FIL on my new dps side is an **** but I don't give him the time of day
