Story: she only has grandsons and has always made it clear that she wants a granddaughter. Think telling people at weddings, christenings, Christmas - random strangers whilst we were on holiday together - in front of her grandsons! "We don't want any more grand kids unless its a girl"
Repeated a lot, has caused some tension.
Fast forward to me getting pregnant, and its not been mentioned. 20 weeks came along and she was amazed (annoyed?) that we were not finding out. Why does it matter? I asked - she then denied all previous granddaughter statements untill my dad and husband said what are you on about, I've heard you say that hundreds of times...
Anyway I did find out but told no one apart from husband. I have had extra scans for medical reasons and every time she asks if I found out..so AIBU to have known all along and not told her? Baby due in 3 weeks.
