I'm just going to make a list of some of the things she's said to me.
Since we've been trying:
*You shouldn't be sad if you lose a baby because I don't think babies who aren't born have souls. I think something was wrong with them and they were just never going to make it.
* I don't think you will ever have kids. I got pregnant with both mine accidentally and you've been trying and can't get have any. Something's wrong with you.
*I don't think I'm gonna want anything to do with you baby if you don't raise it like I would raise it. I don't think I would like it very much.
Since I've been pregnant:
*No. I'm not really excited at all. Maybe I will be excited when it gets here, but I just feel like if you were going to be able to have a baby, she would have by now.
*Oh, don't give me any B.S. about feeling sick. I didn't have a signal symptom until I was very far along.
*Well, I didn't want to believe it but if the test said you are, then maybe you are.
*I don't think drinking or smoking during pregnancy is dangerous, in moderation. Go ahead and have a few shots on your birthday.
If she thinks for a second that she is going to get me down, she's (mostly) wrong. I'm annoyed, but I am not going to sit her and worry I may not make it to term just because she keeps saying she thinks I can't. There is no reason to think anything is wrong with my baby. She's SO beyond ignorant. Getting pregnant by accident when you admittedly hated kids and never wanted any doesn't make you an honorary ob/gyn. There is nothing wrong with me or my baby.
Please, feel free to share your stories or comment on mine so I don't feel like the only wife on the planet with an unlovable baby-hating MIL who constantly expresses a lack of faith in me to keep my bean sticky.
