    I love how parents and in laws seem to think they have a say in how many children we have. My mum is awesome, no issues there but has said 'if we have any more children she will cut DH nuts with rusty scissors.' She doesn't know I had my tubes reversed to have more children lol. She babysits about 4 times a year so it's no strain on her for us to have more!

    ILs act like we're incapable of raising anymore kids, when people ask if we'll have another, they quickly jump in and say "oh DD1 is enough for them now" umm no, she's 3 and we're doing a great job of raising her and definitely have room in our hearts, house and finances for another. What kind of grandparents aren't excited for more grandkids?!

    Mil is already angry cause she doesn't know sex of bub. Told her a month ago.we wouldnt say, also said thursday night before scan wouldn't tell her and after scan got the ****s big time as isn't being told. Dh blamed it all on me saying i didn't want her knowing which is not true as he doesn't trust her spreading it over the whole neighborhood aswell. Told him it was her right as a grandparent to know, i'm selfish she doesnt care if its a secret。Thats quite evident she told all her friends when told not and announced it at my mums 60th for which she hasnt apologized still. And continues to go on that 3rd child is.always a mistake or accident like hers and if a boy would.complete us she can wait till June. She tells everyone its a boy anyone so wished wasnt the case so she'd shut up. I instead will try to be happy with my little man and atleast have some less stress till he is here, would have been worse if she knew and talked constantly about it.

    Can only wait to hear her distate further when i remind her she is not welcome.till bub is 2 days old, no visitors day of birth and day after only for dh dd and me as she will be confused.and deserves time alone with mummy and new brother.

    Thanks I hope so too. It's funny as SIL & BIL are totally normal and ask "oh when are you planning another?" Etc but MIL...needs to realise dh has his own life now!!

    My MIL told the whole family (and half the district) that our third was a mistake. He was very much planned, and yes I would have loved a girl but no need to tell everyone we weren't happy that we got another boy.
