mama. I'm actually tearing up reading your post...not only b/c your mil is crazy but she sounds errily like my own mother who is spiteful and immature. I'm also terribly sad to hear you say that you've had happiness stolen from you this pregnancy. More
It sounds like there are other issues than just over what your mil did with the original name y'all were kicking around. I'd have a heart-to-heart with your dh and let him know how you truly feel. Let him know that while you understand that this woman is his mother and that he loves her, you are his wife, you are carrying his child, that your family- you, your dh, and your babe- need to come first.
The name thing could potentially be the first of many trials you could have with your mil. Getting on the same page with your dh about your parenting and about limits you set for your family can go along way when and if you invite your mil back into your life again.
Good idea! I was thinking of doing something similar last night..if DH told mother in law the decoy name, she would scream it from mountain tops for me and might actually help the situation. (did I just say mother-in-law and help in the same sentence?!) This could be good. However, I can expect to have something else with an embroidered name on it..oh well. Better to have a few onesies with a random name than to have the surprise name ruined, huh?
