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.

No way! I'd be ropable if my dh was speaking to my mother, she's cut from your life for good reason.

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.

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.
