I don't think she meant it possessively. She may not realize what she is saying especially if she is a first time grandmother. I have had very long conversations about this with my own mother. She just might need to be reminded that this is your baby and she gets to be a part if his/her life as a grandmother.
My mom says stuff like this all the time. I'm on my 3rd kiddo and she still does it. It irritates me, but I get over it. She's a great grandma but when I don't want her around, I just don't invite her! They just get REALLY excited at the thought of grandbabies.
This seems like such a small thing to be upset about. I'm just going to say that you're hormonal. She appears to be excited and in some way it's her baby as in grand baby. That's something that should make you feel good that your baby is so loved appears and is not even here yet.
My mom calls my belly "her baby" all the time. First grand baby for her. It doesn't bother me. I just think she's super excited
I figured was being hormonal. She also told me she had her own baby room set up at her house a few days prior to this too. I know she's excited, but I read such horror stories on this thing as well!
Lol with my first my mother lived 4 hours away and I was due in the winter. She forbade me from going into labor one weekend when a blizzard came through because she wouldn't have been able to come for the birth.
Just be thankful you have someone that care and that is willing to help you,not everybody is bless to have help,trust your going to need her!!
I a appreciate iit all don't get me wrong, I'm just very sensitive and take things too personally :)
Yea you're taking it too personal. I guarantee she means no harm and it's cool she's making room in her life for the baby. The baby has their own room. Wow. Most grandparents don't even want to see the child as often. They want them when they want them and then send them home.
I would give anything for my in laws to want to be this involved in my daughter, she is nearly 5 now and they hardly even say hello to her when they walk through the door and I've asked to keep some toys at theirs for when we are there or they babysit, to be told that they don't want toys in bedrooms incase adults come to stay and they wouldn't want toys in their room, it's getting to a point where my daughter is noticing they are cold and are ski questions. I would just be grateful, she's clearly excited and once the baby is here she will probably settle down but think how lucky your baby will be to know how loved they are.
