So my husband and I have been planning to start trying this summer. We've kept this a secret from our families. My mom, however, has already started to buy clothes for a future grandchild. His father has attempted to win auctions for baby strollers. But his mother....a few weekends ago she told us we should not have anymore puppies (we have three dogs so we were very confused by what she meant) we finally got it out of her that she meant we should not have children. She tends to call our dogs kitties, so we never really know what species she is talking about. She is often drunk so this could be part of the confusion. However, she has openly told her two sons that she did not want children, so I'm wondering if she's trying to live the life she wanted through me. And I can get that, but having a baby is something I'm so excited about and it was kind of disheartening to hear MIL say I shouldn't have a baby.
