Having negative talk around you
Find a Conversation

Hi everyone, hope all is going well with your pregnancies. I need your advice on this one.
I'm 28 weeks pregnant and me and my husband used to live 3 hours drive from family. We bought a moved to a new bigger home two months ago that is near (30 min. from them).
Since we moved, we have been hanging more with his family, especially his mom and her sister. Although I like them, they can be quite negative people, they're talking all the time about this person and that person that had a stroke, the other one that is sick, the other one's in the hospital, the other one that died, etc, etc. Most of them are people we don't even know who they are.
Because I'm more sensible than before, this can really get me down. Even this last Sunday we had lunch in a restaurant with his mom and on the drive to the restaurant she was already having those conversations, I just felt like doing a U turn and go home... sometimes I just want to shout something like "I don't give a f***"!
My husband also thinks it's too much, but he tolerates it because is her mother. I just feel like I want (and need) to step back from his family a bit until labour because I don't like or need that negative energy around me at this point in my pregnancy. That gets me down and I'm such a positive person! His mom (and sister) aren't even aware that they shouldn't have those conversations around a pregnant person! I need positive people and positive subjects around me, espceially now that my labour day is coming and I'm getting anxious!
So do you agree I should do what I feel like and just withdraw from them. I don't want my husband to do that too, but I prefer not to meet those people for now. Your advice would help me, thank you in advance!
