I can't believe this is happening again. I am 22 wks PG with our 2nd child and my MIL told me on Fri that she won't be around for the birth. They are going on vac for 2 months to FL, and won't be back until about a week after my DD will be born. I am so hurt, I can't even speak. She also had planned a vac during my son's due date, and wasn't around. DH and I were very upset, but he would not allow me to express my feelings to her. He said it wasn't worth it. My MIL and her husband are both retired, and can go away anytime they feel like it. WHich they do, they have the social life of 5 couples. They are never at home. Good for them, but how hard is it to come home a week early for your grandaughther's birth?? I will be a scheduled c-section, so no guessing when she will come. THis time DH confronted her, and all she could say was she already had this planned. Well she has know since JUne that I was PG, at that time she surely could have modified her plans. In fact, its probably still not tool late. SO, I ask, who does this??? What kind of person seemingly goes out of their way NOT to be around?? Her husbands daughter pops out kids like pez, and they wouldn't think not to be around for her needy lazy ass!!! Sorry I am just so frustrated. My dad is sick and he is scared he won't be around for the birth, and then I have my MIL who believe's her vac is more impt. Go figure
