My overbearing, divorced, can't-cut-the-umbilical-cord-from-her-son mother-in-law was a terrible NICU grandparent. Just to give you some examples... She was absolutely obsessed with his weight. Everyday she'd ask my husband what he weighed, and whenever he was almost to the next pound, for example, if he was 2lbs 15ozs, she would sigh and say "Ugh, I thought he'd be 3 pounds by now," same if he was 3lbs 15ozs, 4lbs 15ozs, etc. Even when he was 6lbs 15ozs! "Ugh, I thought he'd be 7 pounds by now!" DS tested abnormally for a sex condition that almost all preemies test positive for because of certain proteins due to low birth weight. They rarely ever have the actual condition. When MIL heard that he tested abnormally, she said, "Does this mean when he grows up he's going to be gay?" and then mentioned her brother, who recently got a sex change to become a woman and said, "I wonder if that's what my brother has?" My son, of course, ended up testing negative for it. She was talking to my DS in NICU and said "You're going to come over to Grandma's and tell her how awful mommy and daddy are to you!" He wasn't even home yet. She had said that one of my son's nostrils is going to be bigger than the other because of the feeding tube that *I* made him wear, and that when he's a teenager he's going to blame me because of his "deformed" nostrils. She said "If he had been born on time he probably would have been 9 pounds." Not something you say to a mom who gave birth to a 2 pounder. Do you ladies have any stories like these?
