My mother-in-law raised 2 boys. She doesn't quite know how to interact with me, her daughter-in-law. She's not the most sensitive woman. That is, she's not at all PC and pretty much blurts out whatever she's thinking.
Each of the 3 times I was pregnant, I cannot count the number of occasions she exclaimed to me, "When are you due again? You're HUUUUUGE. Are you sure they have your due date right?"
When what my inner monologue was screaming was more along the lines of, "Listen here you wretched woman. I'm hormonal. I'm hot, I'm tired and I'm grossly swollen. I own a mirror--I KNOW I'm gigantic. And you know what? It's ALL your precious son's fault! That's right, we had SEX! Lots."

[This was taken the night before my water broke with my Eldest. I told you I was swollen.]
