I am so done with my mother in law it's not even funny. I thought this in my mind several times I emotionally can no longer deal with her anymore. I had mentioned before about my sister in law telling me she is now pg and that if she should m/c I would understand...yeah um great. I am truly happy for her but not the greatest choice of words. So we are at my mother in laws and she is going on and on about my sister in law being pg and how it feels and how sick she was blah blah. I basically turned around and said look these last several weeks have been hell - I have gotten myself back together, started packing for our move and taking care of my dad (and dealing with my mothers issues - who had me running and taking care of everything and anything imaginable during the transfer time). My mother in law turned to me and said well the IVF was your choice and I did this to myself. Um yes the IVF was my and my DH choice, but I didn't choose to have fertility issues, I did not choose to have the results I had with the IVF and I did not choose to have the side affects that I had from the meds. I am so tired of her ignorace. I doubt she even realized how cruel she sounds but WTH??? She aways says I am like a daughter to her but not once has she even asked how I was and if I was ok - knowing all that was going on. How freaking draining!

Ok - sorry but I feel much better...please tell me I am not crazy for feel about her....

Lorie, I totally know what you mean about mother in laws. Mine is a "peach" as well. It sounds like yours needs to take some sensitivity classes. Some people just have no clue what infertility can do to a person. How it feels like physical pain to go through it all and to have to slap a smile on your face when people around you get pregnant. I'm sorry you have to deal with this all and I truly hope you start to feel better. Don't worry about venting. We've all been there.

Bad mother in law, really sucks...my BFF hates her boyfriend's mother and has a laundry list of problems. She says if she ever dates someone else, a prerequisite will be that his mother is not in the picture...at all.

I wish she could show you a little empathy.

Thanks ladies - she had a long list of issues and I told my husband I'm done with her. She goes through these crazy cycle of hot and cold with me and I never know what to expect....but heck when you take a whole pharmacy of meds and mix them with alcohol that's what you get. I wish I could be a better person but she's causing her own issues - time to get rid of the negativity.
