I agree with you though, I'm pregnant with a boy & it scares me I'll become a monster in law one day. I hope with my experience with my MIL I will be more conscious of how I behave with my future DIL.

Obviously in hindsight these comments might not be so bad. But I can't vent to dp about it hence I started a thread. And given the amount of responses (thanks guys, makes me feel less alone!) a lot of people feel the same way. I don't hate my mil just get p'd off sometimes. She has no idea this thread exists and in fact I reckon I can be a whole lot more tolerant of her due to this thread

Omg i spent most of last night reading through this thread (with popcorn) and i am so glad im mot the only one with a monster in law.
Heres some from my mil
I was visiting family interstate as i have been suffering from depression/anxiety. I have a 5 and 4yr old girls and i am 11weeks pregnant. Mil's response was "you had better come back with my girls or i will come up and drag you back myself" mind u i hadnt seen my family for almost 2years.
I was suffering from morning sickness and it was a saturday and dp had work. I hadnt ironed his shirt as i wasnt well (his a tradesman) and told him to do it himself. When dp arrived home mil arrived too. While i was on the lounge looking like death she piped up and said "why didnt u iron dp's shirt?" Then insisted dp pack all his work clothes into a bag so she could take them and iron them herself.
There are plenty more i could keep going all day

So he asks me to make him homemade chicken and veg soup, which is his cure-all when he feels sick. Normally I'm pretty maternal but this day I told him to stick it up his butt and make his own soup. So he calls his mother, whinging I wasn't looking after him properly and asking to bring him soup. So she turns up with all this tinned soup!! I had a go at him in front of her how rude it was to undermine me, that I had no sympathy for him since it was self inflicted *hint hint MIL why are you pandering to him??* She seemed to get the hint and left quite quickly lol

I work in the health field and have done a Bachelor Degree and a lot of further study to be considered an expert in my area of specialisation - and my mother thinks she is qualified to give health advice from my field, to friends and family. WTF?
Did she get her degree by osmosis? And then she gets offended when no-one listens to her 'advice' and says things like "If you or I talk to them about health, they just won't listen to us" as if we both have qualifications. Ummmm, nope, I'm the only one with a degree here!

Shiz my MIL says? ....nothing. As in literally did not even acknowledge me or say hello to me at DS's 1st birthday, because she was unhappy that my family were there too and she had to share him, as "she never gets to see him". Even though she's been just down the road from us numerous times and we've asked her to come see him but she's declined. She can drive 3 hrs regularly to see friends, but not 1.5hrs to see her only grandson. But if you ask her I'm a horrid biatch who keeps her grandson from her! I give up!
