    I would be livid, that's what im thinking will happen so don't want to tell mine.

    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'm petty. And would let her find out through the grapeline about the birth.

    Again. I am petty. Especially when pregnant and hormonal lol.

    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

    I don't understand how that's manipulative in any way. Your inlaws are crazy!

    I know, right?! Thankfully dh also heard the conversation and he was equally gobsmacked and even bought it up with her later. She said something about the timing of the baby kicking being 'convenient' - she wanted him to do something for her?! Either way, dh thinks she was childish and now we joke about whenever I am talking to him about OUR kids I am trying to manipulate him.. She really is a nutcase.

    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

    I didn't tell anyone-DH told his mum who then told others. I have had a few people text me about buying stuff for 'the two girls' I asked DH and he said yeah I told mum and I said well she's clearly telling other people and he shrugged so of course there was an argument. I hope it's a boy now! I totally agree, people cannot help themselves which is why I specifically said to DH I don't want anyone to know the sex-it's no ones business but of course he got drunk and blabbed. So rude.
