Hoping some advice may help me feel better about this situation.
My future Mother-In-Law (fiance's mum) is appearing very disinterested in the baby. This will be her first grandchild (and first great grandchild for her mother). We live in the same town so she each other about once a week or so. She rarely asks me about the preg and when I do tell her things she doesn't take much of an interest. She has not bought anything (I do not expect to have them buy things, but usually family are wanting to give you things they find cute, etc and generally are excited). She, however, is not excited - it's nearly like a non-event.
I spoke with my sister-in-law (her daughter, who lives in another state) and said casually "hey, has your mum said much about the baby, is she excited." Well SIL says "mum doesn't know where she fits in and how your relationship (with fiance) will go." I remained casual about it but inside i'm just going "WHAT THE?' I just don't understand, I didn't want to make it an issue with the family, but can anyone help me understand? My fiance and I have been together for nearly 4 yrs and always had a good relationship (no hint of trouble). I don't think i need to explain to MIL 'where she fits in'. HELP, this is really starting to irk me.
