Woman claims her mother in law found out the sex of their baby behind her back and then told everyone.
Signing off her note, Sad Mommy, the woman explained how she’d had a cordial relationship with her mother-in-law during her six year marriage to her husband.
‘I am now pregnant with his family’s first grandchild. My husband and I mutually decided that we didn’t want to know the sex before the birth,’ she wrote.
‘My mother-in-law was livid with our decision, even though I tried to placate her by using the obstetrician she suggested and allowing her to attend some of my prenatal appointments. She continued to bring up gender at every opportunity.’
The woman went in to say she was surprised to see her mother-in-law smiling broadly at her doctor’s office one day.
‘A few days later I had messages from family members congratulating me on the baby girl I was having! My mother-in-law wheedled the information out of the ultrasound technician, who is a friend of hers, then announced it.’
The woman understandably felt hurt and betrayed by the actions of her husband’s mother and that she and her husband had now made a decision to exclude his mother from the birth of the baby.
How would you feel if your mum or MIL did this to you?
