My family Is not particularly supportive, but most of them recognise that I am making an informed choice in the best interest of my child. Here is my problem. My brother in law has mafe It his personal mission to bring it up and try and "convert" me. This last weekend he confronted me in front of my whole family, some of whom didnt know anything about my decision. I am not a confrontational person, and it is such an emotionally charged issue for me that I had a very hard time coming up with any intelligent rebuddles, in fact, I ended up crying... I'm 7 months pregnant and a little extra sensitive. I'm sure thst was seen as a weak out to the conversation.
It infuriates me that he thinks its his buisness at all, it is very disrespectful to me as a parent to insinuate that I am not doing what is best for my child. I tried to tell him that I appreciate his concern and his opinion, but I had made a carefully informed choice, to which he replied that it was fact, not his opinion.
What do I do if anything? I completely regret being honest when they asked. O thought about writing him an email explaining my position and how his approach on the subject made me feel, but Im not sure it will be well received, and I don't want to put a wedge in the family. On the other hand I'm not sure if I will be able to talk with him again in any kind of real way knowing what he thinks. I'm just waiting for the " you are try.g to kill your baby with a hone birth" speech next time we see them. Advice please?! Thanks in advance!
