I am not in this DDC, I just pop in to stalk people that used to be in our TTC club but graduated,
so I am sorry to intrude. But I just wanted to give you another "You are SOOO not alone!" and a
Very long story, but my MIL is horrible as well. Hubby and I and her are basically not on speaking terms. (We have tried to talk it out, but she just started to ignore us years ago.) Most of it is because of me, I am a horrible, liberal democrat and have corrupted and am now controlling her son.
She is so hateful that we are actually glad, like you, that we don't have to deal with her! If I get pregnant, she probably won't find out till the baby is in my arms at some family wedding we both happen to be attending. Because if she doesn't want anything to do with us, she doesn't have a right to know, and can face the consequences of cutting us off.
Sounds like you are already in good company here, but just thought I would throw another story on here to make you feel a little bit better. Hubby and I have spent a lot of anguish on the whole thing, it has taken a lot to "let it go" and live our lives.
I hope things turn out better for you, and I wish you a wonderful pregnancy. You totally have the right to tell who you want, when you want. I hope you don't mind me jumping on your post when I am not in the DDC!
