that would totally pee me off. I don't actually trust anyone to keep secret that kind of news so I wouldn't say anything til I was well and truly ready to announce it myself. people can't help themselves but it's sad a mil can't respect that it's your news to tell, not hers. did you have a word to her?
I overheard a convo between my MIL and SIL while still pregnant with my youngest about me calling dh over to feel the baby move was 'manipulative' and 'calculated'. Dh had been so disappointed to always miss out on feeling him, and when he finally did he was so excited. But no, it was a manipulative move on my part
When my first (DD) was a newborn my MIL told me my baby is "quite clingy" to me and my SIL repeated her views with "yes, she's a mummy's girl". WTF she was only a few weeks old!
Then later step-FIL told me I was quite "overprotective" - from a man whose never had kids of his own
