Sorry about the long post. This is me being emotional or probably something to it. I do not have a good relationship with my mom. I love her, appreciate everything she has done for me and my family but our relationship is not the closest. She is not the first one I consult when I have some problem, be it before marriage or after. She was never the one to take any initiative on any talk. I live in the US and she lives in India. I talk to her every week, but it’s very superficial. She never asks how we are doing or anything, some days she just look at us while my sister or dad is talking and that’s it. I am currently 39 weeks pregnant and she knows we don’t have any help here. She doesn’t ask a word on how I am doing or what plans I have when I go to hospital and how to take care of my DD. Earlier when I found out I was pregnant, I called her and she never picked up so I called dad and I told him first and when I requested him that I need to talk with mom he said she is watching tv and he will tell her. The following week onwards she stopped talking to me for almost 2 months and my sis and bil told me it’s because I never told mom in person about the pregnancy!!! I told my sis what happened during a weekend phone call and May be she talked with mom, things were getting better. Last few weeks she barely asked anything when I call. She has whatsapp and what not. Never calls me. It’s always me who call them. But when our relatives visit, she will ask dad to call us and ask us to show our house around to who ever visiting and acts like we are in great terms. I play along even though I don’t like it. Lately May be it’s the pregnancy that makes me sad about this, she doesn’t call or talk to us on anything. Never asked if I need anything from home for the pregnancy. My DD adores my parents but they barely talk to her and when they talk they never appreciate what she tells them or shows them. Now DD doesn’t want to talk to them. Poor kid, when she gets a toy, she always wants to show them over the weekend chat. I don’t know why my parents are like that. Especially mom. How does she do it? My dad also sides with her he asks if everything is okay and that’s it. But at least he asks that. They never ever ask anything more than that. I want to complain to her about all these but I don’t know if it will make things worse. DH says why would we talk to them every weekend when they seem not interested or like having to do nothing with us. I have a hard time letting it go. I don’t know if there was any problem from my side!!!
