My husband sent his mother a text message letting her know the news last weekend. (He never talked to her on the phone). I thought that it was odd that she didn't call us, but thought that perhaps she would call us later this week. I haven't heard from her (no calls, emails, or text). I thought that with him being an only child and this is our first baby that she would be excited and want to congratulate us. Should I take this personally? Or am I just being hypersensitive?
Are you positive she received the message? Texts are not always reliable. Maybe get your husband to just call her to make sure she got the text!
Or.. I know my Mom would be kinda sad if I would have told her over text message. Maybe Your MIL is waiting for you to call and tell the news.. Maybe "pretending" she didn't get the text..
I guess I'm just giving her the benefit of the doubt, she should be excited!! If she does know and she wouldn't care about finding out via text, and hasn't called or anything, then that would be pretty rude..
Sorry that it's stressing you out! Hopefully all will be worked out!
