We'll see though
That's the same with me. MIL has a cottage 20 minutes away. . . so why can't she stay there?! My mom and sister live about 40 minutes away, but I'm sure they would drive to see me. . . they don't like imposing unless I insist! My MIL tends to get a bit bossy when it comes to her son's life. . .so I usually have to put my foot down (wedding=nightmare!)

I'm sure she is seeing it as a gift to her son of her time etc.

I would see it like you. Women know when women are being manipulative!

I had the same trouble with wedding. His mum was a nightmare leading up to it. I wonder if it is mothers of boys though as I could imagine being this person if I have a son and when he grows up I will have to remind myself of conversations like this though!

Hey Ladies,

Sorry I have been MIA.

I had a bit of a scare on Wednesday, super painful stabbing sensation low in my groin and then noticed a bit of brown spotting.

I called my clinic, but they didn't seem too alarmed. I had an appt booked for yesterday to get my IPS results so they told me just to come in then.

Thankfully all is perfect with the bean!! THe results are normal and I got to see baby again.

Yesterday was also my 30th birthday and my sister gave me the most amazing photo frame. You put the sonogram pic in it and there is a little caption mine says "coming soon" so cute.

I finally decided to post it on facebook yesterday and the comments were amazing.

Feels so much more real now, and really starting to get excited.

Yeah, I was just talking to my sister and she said, "Aww, she was just trying to be nice!" So, maybe it won't be so bad, but I just want to make sure *I* call the shots and not her! And I totally agree---I think I'll be one of those mom's too! It'll be my little boy and I'll want to help!!

whattoexpect---so glad to hear that everything is fine with your baby!! That would scare me too! I posted on facebook this week, too----it's really fun to read everyone's excitement!

Hey all! Glad to hear that I'm not the only one starting to feel "normal." Over the past couple days I've felt like a pregnancy bloodhound with all the weird smells my office seems to be making. Yesterday it was an awful moldy coffee/chewing tobacco smell. Today it is rancid bacon. Make it stop!

sleeping bubs, yay So glad your scan went well!! I changed your due date, and can't wait to see the pic!

Kellen, I totally get it. I smell cat pee and body odor everywhere I go. It's AWFUL! What's weird is that I don't have a super nose for yummy smells, just the yucky ones!

whattoexpect, I'm glad everything is alright! That's a cute idea for announcing the pregnancy. Happy birthday, also!

Sierra, sounds like you have your hands full! My own Mom came to stay for 2 days after my last DD, and even that was too much! I am kind of a control freak around the house, and was telling her to make sure the glasses don't touch in the dishwasher or they'll break, and she said "I've loaded a few dishwashers in my life!!" and decided to go home early the next day I think the first few days after the baby is born hormones go absolutely insane, and MIL there with you is sort of asking for conflict, but I hope not!

Helena, glad you're feeling better! I'm still trampled with fatigue, but you've inspired me to try to tackle a cleaning job. Maybe I'll get to one a day. today, kitchen floor!!!

I am thankful that my in-laws live in Texas and are less than motivated to come see us... ever. We've been in Georgia for over a year and they have come here 0 times while we have spent over $800 in gas and airline tickets to see them several times.
My parents on the other hand live in Oregon but have graciously split the cost of airfare with us so that I can go see them at the end of the month! They also are coming to visit for 2 weeks during Thanksgiving. Thankfully both my DH and I are really close to my folks. His are nice, but they exist in a totally different world. No offense to anyone, but - their idea of fine dining is eating an $8 hamburger.
My DH pretty much raised himself and has elevated himself through college and world travel. It is difficult for them to understand why we are the only ones (out of his 5 siblings) that don't live within 30 minutes driving distance. I also don't like to be around them because they smoke like trains! Love them to death, but 3 days is about max.

I finally got up the nerve to take/post a bump pick this morning, and my DH saw me loading it onto the computer. He said, "are you posting that? You look like you're sticking your stomach out, and your thighs aren't really that big in real life are they? Want me to take a pic?"

I burst into tears, ran upstairs to change clothes, and angrily did a workout video in the other room. I'm not sure if he meant to be helpful? This is the first he's taking ANY notice of my bump, so how would he know how it looks??? Maybe I should paint my bump like a cell phone so that he'll actually pay attention to what's going on in there. Ugh
