I don't even have a question, just feeling sorry for myself sad

oh I feel your pain! I love my mil dearly, but when she refers to my children as her babies I see red!

I'm thankful that my PILs are lovely! Mum and Nan are having wars over possession of this baby. Never mind that I'm nearly 30 and it's MY BABY

Surely the correct answer to that is "yes it would be lovely to have you do the nappy changes thanks" grin

Haha, she'd love it. My aunt was pressured not to breastfeed so that Nan could have her two. She's well into her eighties and would be a liability looking after the baby.

DH and I have been working on being assertive throughout this pregnancy as the boundaries within my family are so skewed
