    I agree with the others, my immediate thought was "why doesn't the husband block her as well?" If you want to cut her out, then you both do it. You're a team and she needs to understand that there's no splitting you guys.

    Absolutely agree with others. If you want her out of your life, your DH needs to block her number & have nothing to do with her.

    Is he clear that that's what you want? I can see how he might respond if he thinks you're just ignoring her for a little while, but will get back in contact.

    Thanks all - i spoke to him this morning about it and told him that it's not right he still talks to her when she contacts him. He said he was just trying to keep things civil so she doesn't go at me, I do understand where he is coming from because in the past when he has told her where to go and then ignored her she has gone berserk and would send me continuous abusive emails and text messages - i ended up having to block her emails and change my phone number as back then i couldn't block her. This time i feel we have more control in the situation and i requested he block her number like I have. He agreed.

    Id say she has realised being pushing me away she has also pushed away her grandson and future granddaughter. Oh well maybe she needs to be less of a cold b*tch to me for once. But of course she'll never see it that way.

    Thanks all you helped me realise I am not being petty or controlling.

    I am battling to see someone on my days off, they keep booking me in on my working days and then my work rejects me having that day or half day off due to other people having time off booked up. So im going to contact someone else to see if i can get something at a convenient time. I am booked in this Wednesday morning to see a psychologist at my local clinic and waiting back from work to see if i can get time off for this wed. So annoying.

    Good luck getting in nice and quick. It's a big step but hopefully it will help you let go of the hurt in your past. Remember, if you don't feel like you can open up, or like they have no useful input, try another.

    Hopefully your DH listens to you and blocks the MIL. It is so important to be a united front with difficult rellos!

    I'm glad to hear he's on board. I think your best course of action is to just not engage. As others said, to respond to her is to feed into her need for attention! I'm so sorry your mother is such a cow.

    Can your work stop you from going if it's a medical appointment and you have a doctors certificate???

    Nope. They can't prevent you from taking sick leave.
