I’m pregnant and due in October and my mother-in-law has invited herself to to come and stay with my husband and I for a week when the baby is born. She is welcome to come, but I would prefer that she come a month or so later so my husband and I can spend that time with the baby. My husband refuses to address the issue. His mom has this spell over him and he’s unable it seems to stand up to her. We don’t get along (She has accused me of stealing her baby boy and I have told her she has an unhealthy relationship with her son) so I’m concerned to how she’s going to react when I tell her.
I’ve told my own mom to not come right away either to be fair to his mom, which has caused some issues between her and I. I need some advice to tell my Mother In Law that I don’t want her intruding on the first week of my new baby’s life without offending her. Is that even possible? Do I stand my ground? Is it even worth the drama? Stressed mom to be in Cambridge
