Hi all, I'm new mother of 3 month old baby. We live in US. Plan was to bring my parents for delivery but my dad got sick, advised not to travel, mom had to stay to take care of dad - in-laws came instead. They came in the 8th month of pregnancy. They are fine people and had a smooth relationship since marriage and never lived together more than few weeks. After they came and during the last few weeks of pregnancy , they were pampering the husband and I started feeling disappointed. MIL is basically lazy , she enjoys socializing with ppl and going out to places but not very interested in cooking or household chores. They both used to go to park and spend time there socializing. I was cooking & doing chores till the day I got labour pain. After I delivered , hubby was in 2 weeks paternity and he used to spend most of the time helping his mom in cooking or chores when I expected him to spend time with me and baby. Hubby thinks they both might feel lonely in foreign country and spends lot of time with them when I feel I'm the one left out and struggling to keep up with sleepless nights and postpartum stress. With all this I miss my parents so much and feel extremely lonely. I don't even have any close friends to whom I can share here and I miss my hubby very much whom I thought as my best friend. I don't want to tell anything to parents as they ll be worried. Now, in 2 months in-laws are going back and I'm going too with baby. They wanted me to stay with them for sometime and then go to parents but I said I'm going to stay at my parents place only. I feel very irritated all the time and feel angry. I don't talk to them mostly as what ever they say or do irritates me. I feel raged if it's something to do with the baby. They don't fight back and mil tries to talk very normally which irritates me more. Hubby thinks I'm being rude and says I have to tone down and adjust. I feel they are all one family and I m the odd man out. I feel that hubby gets most attention when I am the one who pushed a human out of me. I keep thinking if my mom had come, she would have taken good care of me in addition to the house stuff and I would have spent quality time with my baby and husband during the most precious time of our lives. As a diversion, I registered for a certification exam and spend my time either studying , being with the baby or doing some household stuff avoiding any interaction with anyone. I speak only if necessary and stay inside our room most of the time. I feel that there is a friction in our marriage and hubby doesn't seem to understand what I am going through. Did any of you guys had to live with in-laws during delivery away from parents ? How did you cope up? Appreciate your suggestions.
