I would really appreciate some honest feedback. My mom and I have always been close. When I had my second child, I had a scheduled c-section that was scheduled months in advance. The day before, my mom asked me how long it was going to take bc she had other things she needed to do. She had to supervise her housekeeper who was helping her lack to move that same week. I can't tell you how much that hurt my feelings that she didn't want to be there. 2 weeks before my third child was born, my mom left town. I didn't ask her to stay bc I didn't feel like I should have had to. I called her when she was away and told her that I was very afraid bc everyone else I knew close by left town, too, and I had no one to watch my older two kids. I was afraid that if I went in labor and couldn't find anyone to watch the kids then my uterus would rupture bc I'd had two c-sections already. I was hoping she'd come home but she told me to leave my hubby at home with the kids and call ambulance. My fourth child was born in the middle of the night and she didn't come see her until the next afternoon. Mom lives across the street from me and we are about 3 minutes from the hospital. I am pretty much at her beck and call all the time bc I love her so much. We see each other several times a week. She gets really depressed if I don't see her a LOT. But it feels very "one-way." Am I expecting too much to think she should have been a little more supportive?
