    Dear OP
    Please try to understand that they are your husband's parents. You cannot dictate them to come according to your convenience. Also your husband is right in saying that he cannot ask them to delay their arrival as they will be offended. Dont get stressed. Come on you are going to be a mom soon. Have a little patience as it will be very handy in the coming months with a crying baby in your arms day and night.

    Let them come and treat them nicely. Do not hesitate in taking help from your mother in law . It will make your hubby happy too. In such an important event of your life you need your elder's blessings. IF they are not etremely annoying, I think you can put up with them.

    Speak to your husband,
    tell him that you are over reacting for his parents arrival, sorry to feel that way.
    you would have tens of thousands of HCG hormone running in your blood because of the placenta,
    normally which is less than 10, hormones certainly have effect on your mentally and physically.

    This situation he would never face in his life for him to understand your condition, you need to cope with it, make him understand, convince him to do what you want him to do for the baby.

    also let him think over, by saying i will try to do my best to cope with your parents, if it does not work, please let us agree that i will go to my parents place for the sake of baby.
    stress induces, unwanted things in you and your baby physically and your husband and his family mentally.

    all these fights would vanish once every one see the baby and smile and 24/7 of some ones time is anyway needed for the baby.

    being honest, during pregnancy mother help can not be replaced by husband.
    Find a diplomatic solution, baby arrival should not create marks in your life (FIL n MIL are part of it, despite how they react how you feel).

    leaving all this apart, please talk to someone who wants to have a baby but they are not able to have a baby due to infertility problem, or talk to some who had failed IVF. what that mother is ready to cope with........

    best wishes

    Thanks everyone so much for your advice. I have been so occupied the past week and was not able to respond.

    Anyway.. just an update..I don't know what hubby discussed with my inlaws and what they have decided on...but I am certain if they still insisted to come he would have told me I think. If they are still insisting on coming I am trying not to worry about it as I already have a solution in place.

    Also, I have just been called for an interview in my parents city and hubby said he can travel one week here one week there if I want to go for that opportunity. I am just a little worried that if he calls his parents now and i am living with my parents then he wont even visit (but I don't think he will do this -- but you never know) - Also, I am not sure how living apart will turn out especially when I am pregnant as I have never stayed even a day away from hubby. I told hubby this and he said he will surely commute between the cities every week (as many of his friends are in similar situation he is used to this concept, but I am not!).

    Lastly, the company that has called me for an interview is very close to my parents place and very convenient... I have applied here several times but this is the first time I have gotten an interview call. But I am also worried how it will look if I get the job and join and then in few months I have to tell them I am pregnant....it might ruin my reputation with the company for the future? Although I am extremely early in my pregnancy (6th week). What do you guys think?

    I will say you should take this opportunity and go ahead. You told you have applied many times , finally you got a call . So don't miss it.

    I worked untill 9 month! I was thankful I had my job to keep me busy. You are lucky it's near your parents house .


    Don't loose what is in your hand thinking about future !? There is no quarentee you will get the call again !! .

    May be staying little far make your husband miss you !

    All the best

    Just FYI be prepared what to say to HR when they question about starting a family. I have heard that These days HR in India goes overboard by asking these personal questions.

    1. Its against the law to discriminate a women for being pregnant.
    2. You are still in an early stage of pregnancy. Now is a good time, compared to few months down the lane where more rest is needed. You can establish yourself in the 8 months you get and think about the maternity leave,etc later.
    3. Although I dont advocate to stay away from husband, take this job if you have been trying really hard for a job. What would be your H's advice?

    Hi Ladies,
    Just wanted to update you. So I didn't talk to hubby regarding this topic since our last fight last week, nor did I speak to my MIL since my conversation with her where she said FIL and her son will decide when they r coming...I assumed hubby had spoken to her and this topic was sorted but apparently not.

    Anyways...so hubby slept early today as tired and then around 10.30pm i saw MIL had called me 8 times :expressionless: (I mean if I don't pick up once at night, doesn't she get I might be busy!). Anyway...so I called back even tho it was like midnight when I saw her missed call as I didn't want her complaining to hubby the next day that I don't call her back and she was asking question after question etc and telling me to listen to this and that for baby and THEN she is like ...yeah do this for 3-4months and BY THEN WE WILL COME AND I WILL TEACH YOU. I was shocked and so pissed off that she had given me more tension now for no reason and wished I never called her back!

    In a spur of the moment I went to wake hubby and tell him she called me and if he had spoken to her and he said he hadn't had a chance to speak to her yet and why I was asking. I told him why and then again he started fighting that if he wants to come just let her come etc ... I said fine but why don't you talk to her once and he said he hadn't had the time (he is just scared to talk to her about it and is avoiding the topic as always!). And then he was like you are panicing so much (which i am!) and waking me in the middle of the night and irritating me etc...and once again started fighting. So I told him about when his parents were here after our wedding...and when I didn't make tea for them for 2 days his mom was complaining about it to me in front of her dad...and that I would not b able to satisfy any of her expectations when she comes now as I will not be that well. He just does not understand..I was not complaining or telling on her...but he took that even worse and started fighting. I explained how I will not be able to cook for them or do things for them and they will expect it whether I am pregnant or not...but he doesn't understand at all! Instead he says stupid things like you don't cook now either etc even tho I cook basically every day! Idiot! I KNOW I was wrong to wake him at midnight..but come on! why does she always give stress. Next time I will not even call her back if she keeps doing this!

    Garr.. so I replied to that interview in my hometown to set up a date for an interview after my parents are back from vacation... now I think I have to go for this job even if I want to or not as this is the only escape from this situation. The thing is I don't want to fly too much either while pregnant...especially so early in my pregnancy :(

    First of all you should not have objected to their coming. Trust me, you are better off when you are pregnant, once the baby arrives, it will be triple work if they are in the house. What I did not like in your description is the way your MIL threatened you, that is not a good sign at all, tell her directly if she talks like that the consequences won't be good. The more you resist the worse it will be for you. Just go with the flow. Though it will be a major inconvenience, if you cannot stop them from coming totally, it is better to handle them now. But the threatening is not good, looks like your MIL is the type who will get your husband to hit you, be careful with her. Don't stress about the job. You can do the job one year after the delivery. It takes that much time to bounce back. Just take care of your health. OP looks like you need some counselling on how to interact with ILs. Be courageous, calm and don't panic. And yes, tell your hubby what she told and ask him what she meant by that. You don't say anything like will she do this or will she do that, just ask him why she said she will teach you a lesson... I hope for your sake, that she is not there after your delivery. Some people are so irritating. They don't know how to behave.
