"I think she gave up on me."

Ugh. Long story short. MIL told Dan last night that "Stacey will certainly get pregnant now, b/c I gave away all the baby stuff." Backstory is that she had a crib, stroller, etc for our nephews that live a few hours away, when they come visit. They didn't need the stuff anymore, and MIL knows a family that can really use it. So she gave it away. She had been saving it for us.

As soon as he told me I could feel myself starting to pout, and said that she had given up on me. I didn't cry, but I was most certainly whimpering. He tried to explain that she did it out of superstition. The "get rid of it all and then she'll get pregnant" type of thing. I know that it all went to a needy family.

But still. It certainly felt like she was giving up.

I'm so sorry, I'm sure that must have stung. At least it seems you're giving your MIL's motivations the benefit of the doubt - I probably wouldn't be able to do the same with mine :)

I'm sorry, I would have totally thought of it that way, too.

I'm so sorry. I would have felt the same way.
