when i was 20 weeks gone, FOB + MIL (well technically she's not as me + FOB are not together but idk what else to call her XD) bought me a pram i really liked.
i don't go round their's that often or see FOB much anymore, so when my pram came they told me i could come round, have a look and take it home if i wanted. the thing is MIL keeps trying to get us back together, like forcing him to phone/text me everyday asking how i am and she's constantly texting me asking me when i'm getting back with him cos 'it'd be nice for riley to have a mom and dad who are together'
so i went round their's reluctantly, they got the pram/carseat out and showed it me and i absolutely fell in love with it. then when i went to leave, she said 'you can come round and have a look at it whenever you want' ...even though they had said i could take it away the same day.
my mom got pretty miffed cos she had to come out of work + pick me up cos i obv couldn't get on the bus with a boxed pram + carseat, and when i came away without it she just kept saying 'they're gonna blackmail you'
i didn't believe it but that's EXACTLY what they're doing
i tried to use the excuse that i can't come out of hospital with LO without a carseat in hope they'd hand the pram over at the same time but they keep telling me now to go all back up there to get the carseat... but nothing's mentioned about the pram. surely i'd need the pram aswell?
all i get now is 'you can have the pram when you start seeing him again' but i don't wanna stay in a relationship for him just for a pram!
i hate being blackmailed into being nice to them cos they're 'holding the pram hostage', should i just get another pram?
I'd tell her to bugger off! Deffo get your own. Also, if when you tell her you don't want it, she changes her tune, ignore
her. She sounds like the type of person who in the future will drag it up again.
