I am SO ANGRY with my mom, right now. I should've known better than to accept her offer to come out and be childcare for my daughter while dealing with the baby, but I always somehow think that something will change and that she'll actually be a RESPONSIBLE ADULT for once in her life.
Today, in the OB's office, she was really pressing me to get the cervical check, even after I told her that I felt they were total bunk and not worth the pain. So, instead, when the doctor's assistant says they don't normally insist except in the presence of contractions, she says, "Well, weren't you just saying, the other day, that you were feeling crampy?" And, before that, she dropped a very big, and very painful, piece of my past like so much conversational flotsam into a discussion with the physician's tech, who I'm sure really appreciated the TMI. That is SO NOT her information to share and for her to treat it so casually really hurt.
Now, she is sulking in the guest bedroom because she is SO BORED and has NOTHING TO DO, probably because I totally got on her case for opening her big mouth. But, seriously, she could come out of the bedroom and out of the bed, and... I dunno... be social and watch something with me downstairs in the family room, instead of insisting on having a tv set up in the guest bedroom so that she can lay in bed all day and watch tv.
Long story short: she is not allowed at my OB appointments anymore. :(
