Ive just found out that I'm pregnant again. My DS is 7 months so this is earlier than we had planned, but we are happy about it.

DS is BF. I'm happy breastfeeding and he is a happy, healthy boy. MIL has told me I should now give DS formula as I would otherwise stay very big up top! I was a 36D before pregnancy and them became a 36E.

This is also the same MIL who told me I had to lose weight before I thought about trying for a baby. As I would not shift the baby weight and stay very big. I was a size 14. Not slim but bit huge I thought.

I'm so annoyed!

Your MIL obviously has body issues. Smile pityingly at her and train your DH to say "Are you kidding? Jubbli looks fantastic!"

Congratulations on the pregnancy. MILs are to be smiled and nodded at and then ignored.

You are welcome to come join us on the bf while pg thread. Much gripeing about mils there! grin

Thank you. I was so annoyed when she said this to me, along with all her other 'great advice'!

Have told DH who thankfully took my side and told me to do what I felt was right. But she always manages to make me feel like a hippo! MILsangry

Where is the BF while pregnant thread? For the life of me I can't find it!

Your MIL sounds like mine! How deeply unpleasant she sounds!

Mine says with a huge smile everytime she sees me that she was simply too slim to bf (!!!!!!!) - I presume indicating that I'm not, I'm a size 14 too - I know I know that's her own stuff but still. She also thinks babies should be allowed to cry when very young and that it's cruel to not put them in a nursery when young........

Why is it MIL can be so mean? My MIL smiles when she says everything to me. The number of times ive had to bite my lip! Maybe one day, when pugs fly, I'll be able to say all those clever comebacks I think of while I'm in bed!!

Congrats! grin

Keep BFing. Enjoy this time with DS1 before the madness begins!

Re MIL. Most women would kill for 36E boobs! And I would currently kill to be size 14 blush

My MIL is really lovely but also a bit embarrassed by her lard arse DIL. Your post has made me glad she is not so explicit about it!

Enjoy your pregancy smile
