So my partners mum has been away for a week on holiday. We told her I was pregnant before she went. Anyway she come back this morning and has bought us some baby things it's only a bib and a baby grow. It's really upset me iv made OH take it back round to her house i dont want it in our house I no I sound ungrateful but I'm only 7 week n iv had miscarriages in the past so I don't want to jinxs anything. Am I been unreasonable me n OH are not speaking now
Not at all, as long as you explain to his mum that you love the items she bought but are superstitious about having them in your home just now but you'd like them back in a few weeks time. She's had children herself so will surely understand.
I think maybe you should explain to her you appreciate her thoughts but you feel it's too soon and could she hang onto it for you
I don't beleive you can jinx a pregnancy. I personally beleive that miscarriages happen for a reason - I'd the baby doesn't develope properly and having a bib in the house isn't going to change that BUT I respect everyone has their own views and feelings.
Just say it's very kind but you'd rather she held on to it until later on.
That's what I'm trying to explain to my OH he don't get it men lol! They are so cute I do love them but just don't want them in my house yet. She can be really funny at times so I might just send them to my mums instead. OH didn't listen to me when I old him to Take them bk to his mums lol. X
Hum.... I agree with Mindy_mini, everyone thinks different but i think taking it back to your OH mum is abit ungrateful when she's spent time and money bringing you the item. If you are superstitious (sp?) then i think you should take it to your mums to look after untill the time its needed, then your not hurting your OH mums feelings as she wouldnt know any different. My loft is FULL of baby stuff my siblings have passed down to me, doesnt bother me one bit and i never thought my m/c were due to what i had in my house. There's no reason to not speak to you OH either ~ maybe see it from his POV
Please don't ruin this pregnancy for yourself with worries and superstitions! There's no way having a bib in the house will make you lose a baby Put them in a draw and open it every now and then - give them and squeeze and look forward to the blessing you'll receive in 7-8 months time
My house is FULL of baby stuff for every age as I saved it from my son. Does that mean I am jinxed? I don't personally believe in jinx but I do understand how people buying baby gifts too soon could feel like added pressure on you that's not needed right now.
If I were you I'd take it and just hide it in the loft or something. Or ask a friend to keep it for you.
