Unhappy My mother in law. - August 10th 2013, 12:58 PM

When I first started dating my husband, my mother in law loved me. She said I was the best girlfriend he has ever had, and she was glad I was a positive influence on him. I kept him on track, and tried my very best everyday to make him feel better about himself. In high school, my husband got bullied a lot. He was a typical high school nerd, and I was the one to take up for him. My mother in law loved that I wasn't afraid to be seen with him like the other girlfriends he had, and that I was always honest with him. When we got married, she was even happier, and loved the fact that I was part of her family. We did everything together like a mother and daughter would. Shopping, hair, nails. Not too long after my husband and I got married, we decided we wanted a baby to add to the family. When we found out I was pregnant, it was still sort of scary, even though we knew we wanted a little one, we didn't expect it to be so soon. My birth control failed. I got pregnant a year before we were going to try. I told my mother in law before I told anyone. I don't speak to my parents much, so she was the one I trusted. She was super excited. She helped plan the baby shower, bought us a brand new crib, and was even there when I had her. She held my hand through the whole journey. Now My daughter will be 4 months in five days, and lately my mother in law has been treating me differently. I can clean the house, and she always finds something I do wrong, I can make dinner, and its always something she doesn't want. I can be sitting there and playing with my daughter, and she walks up and takes her to play with her. I wanted to breast feed my entire pregnancy, and we all agreed I would, but now she is acting like it's the wrong thing to do. I'm just not sure what I'm doing wrong. Why has she changed so much over 4 months? Is it something I've did? Please help.

Hey there,

I know exactly what you're saying about tricky mother-in-law's my boyfriend's mother is one of those. Adores me, but can quite easily turn on me.

Anyway, I think you should ask her out right what the problem is, for some reason she has a bee in her bonnet and I doubt you'll know the answer until you speak with her. Maybe you aren't doing things to her liking- which is not your fault as you now have a baby and other priorities. You're a new mum, so you're still finding your feet with your daughter. It is up to you and your husband how you choose to raise your daughter and although your mother-in-law has a right to an opinion she should not be telling you that you're doing things wrong.

Best of luck,
Paige

Thank you Paige. I suppose you are right. I have been putting it off because I didn't want to offend her, but I suppose it is about time that I face the problem. It's not going to get any better until I do.
