Hi, Just wanted to rant about my mother!!! When I told my mum I was pregnant, way back in March/April time, I had no congratulations from her. She even said that she would rather it be my sister as she had an eptopic pregnancy the year before. She even asked whether it was my partners baby, right in front of him!!!! Things have got better over time but we still havent had a congratulations!!! Anyway, she is coming up today from Devon. She had to book a certain date as she is coming up by coach as she wont drive! She keeps going on saying 'it will be a waste of time if the baby doesnt arrive' which is nice to hear! - its nice to know she wants to come and see me!!! Last night I called her, I gave her details of where to get a train if I go into Labour and cant pick her up. (Im already driving about 40 miles to pick her up from York) She expected my partner to pick her up if I couldnt!!!! Then when I explained that she would be able to get a taxi from the train station to the hospital she still expected my partner to leave me - in the middle of labour - to go and pick her up!!! She kept saying how she would be tired after such a long journey with 2 bags!!!!! Is it me or is she just thinking of herself. We are letting her stay in the house for a week yet when we visit her we have to book a B&B!!! I know I should say something and stand up to her, my partner gets frustrated with me so Im also worried about how the week will be between the two of them! He says its not fair for her to give me extra stress - I just keep quiet for an easy life!!! Any one else in a similar situation, any advice? sorry to go on guys. Just feel like I needed to talk to someone!
