    We have family in VA. My Grandmothers neice, however she's related to me has a daughter, lets call her Meg?

    Meg said she was pregnant in December 2008. She claims she lost that baby in February, got pregnant in february again, and is carrying that baby now. It's January, and she's still "prego"SHe was large to start with, and you can't tell a difference. She's threw a baby shower before her mom died of cancer in August. LOTS of money was spent.

    Well. Me and mom have proven that the pictures she has as her ultrassounds are just cropped pictues from google. How do we tell her we know. I'm kind of sick of hearing about her baby, and false labor, and all that. Nah duh it's false labor.... Her "friends" have already called her out, and she denied it. We were supposed to go up there to help set up nursery, but um.... yeah.

    How should we handle this. It's going to stir up crap if we don't go to VA and help set up, and she STOLE those ultrasound photos, claiming they are hers. That's pretty low... Idk what to do, and mom said maybe yall would know any suggestions how to handle it.

    If she is indeed being deceptive, it sounds like she may have some sort of psychiatric illness. I would proceed with compassion.

    I don't know if its attention. It was said they were trying to get more money out ofher mother, she charged up her credit cards and what greater way to get money than carrying the first grandchild??? That's low, but from what family says she isn't above it. I don't know her THAT well to say her character, but our family is one huge grapevine. Secrets are not silent for long...

    Leah this is a mental disorder and people need to watch her closely. Others that have suffered from that have stolen babies. And been caught too. It is quite common and it has alot to do with attention, however it IS a mental disorder.

    Start a pool among your family. Whoever can get closest to the excuse and the date that she tells you she "loses" this baby gets a prize. Then get her into counseling and stop giving her money.

    Definitely a mental illness; however... me being me... I'd call her and tell her that I want to go to the next doctor's appointment. Hmm.... can't family call the authorities to have them bring in a specialist that will authorize sending the person who needs help to a mental hospital?

    Keep us posted on how things work out.

    It must be "National Personal Information Day" today.... this is the second forum today that I've seen in the last 45 minutes where people are asking total strangers for advice on very personal issues. The other was a case of child molestation if you can flippin believe it. Is there no part of life that is kept personal anymore?
