Since it's been slow around here..Where did everyone go? I'll try to spice things up with a MIL rant. I try not to rant about her to my friends/family because I don't want them to completly hate her (would just make things harder for me in the long run) so I need someone to vent to!
Where do I start...I have never had a real issue with my MIL, when me and H first started dating she was always very welcoming to me. I have seen how quickly she can turn cold on people in her life when they go against her though and have always kept that in the back of my mind.
My parents didn't really like her from the start. Nothing specific but I could just tell neither party really liked eachother. It was fine though, we just always kept things pretty seperate. At the wedding activities they were cordial nothing more.
Fast forward to the day my Daughter was born. I was induced for medical reasons. So everyone knew the date ahead of time. My MIL and FIL got at the hospital at 7am (same time as I was admitted) I didn't really care I figured if they wanted to wait in the waiting room that long that was their choice. My parents stayed by their phones and once I was in active labor they came to the hospital. I was in Labor for about 12 hours total.
Well at some point during my labor my H asked me who I wanted to come back first. I hadn't really thought it was a question-Of course my mom/parents. He seemed uncertain. I asked if he thought his Mom would have an issue with that hen maybe he should talk to her ahead of time. He said no it was fine.
My beautiful daughter was born at 7:50p.m. and after we had an hour together as a family, the nurse went to the waiting room to get my parents. They came back, held their granddaughter..but I kept them to 15 minutes because I knew his parents were waiting.
The nurse calls that his parents can come now. We wait a few minutes and no one comes. They LEFT! My H calls his mom she is crying and after a few minutes he talks to his dad and they come back.
I'm still not sure what happened. My parents think they were mad they weren't let back first. I guess a comment was made in the waiting room when they got called back. "Really?! We have been here all day"
My H told me they were upset because they thought they weren't being allowed to see the baby at all.
I'm not sure what exactly happened but the next day my MIL apologizes and I decided to move on.
Of course since that day My parents hate his parents and his parents hate mine. And I feel so bad that my Baby will be stuck in the middle. I am now dreading her first birthday and don't even want to have a party if it means both sets of parents being together.
