Do you think there are some expectations here, from the mother in law? If yes, then are those expectations fair?
What if the mother in law had a career or any other interests, or health issues, and there were no other relatives, …female relatives, who could come and cook for the couple?
Who doesn’t seem to be feeling any guilt in this email? Why is that so?
I frequently visit your blog.I am an avid reader of your blog. Almost all the topics touches a chord some where.
I m writing about a problem to get suggestions and inputs from bloggers here.
I work with a MNC married for one and half year. Now I am carrying three months. Initially all was good and we both were so happy. My Mil came to take care of me.
First few weeks I was not feeling like eating. Then slowly as pregnancy progress I took interest in simple daal subji chawal but served hot. This is difficult for my Mil. She never like to cook. They have maid at home who does most of the cooking cleaning stuff.
I work in shifts so can cook only one time.
Now also due to weakness I found it is exhausting to stand and cook. But the truth is I don’t like her food. Sometimes it is good but most of the time she serve cold afternoon food.
And she won’t cook until you feel hungry.
Now I am feeling hungry too frequently.I need small stuff but in regular three four hr interval.
All these needs are not getting fulfilled.most of the time I eat office canteen food or outside snacks resulting severe gas and acidity.
Now I am cooking little things for my self but get tired soon. In all these my husband feels bad that I don’t like his mama’s food. His side is she could not cook now, still she is trying. So I should not complain. In reality I am not complaining for food. I started cooking but I complain of tiredness.
This could be a minor issue but at this time I feel like I m not getting enough nutritious food.
Otherwise I can eat all types of food. Don’t complain much.
Can anyone give valuable suggestion please.
