Loving dude, adamant appa...and I really hope II doesn't bite more than she can chew...job, periappa, karwa chauth, navaratri...all these will just add more to her plate. Granted she has the resources, but its going to take a toll on her.
Appa...people will always speak whatever you do, you do the right thing then also they will comment otherwise also they do. It might be positive or negative...just try and broaden your view.
Dude you are going to miss so much of the pregnancy...the little small things which could be shared with each other face to face...instead now u have to resort to pics and texts. Wish he and II could be together and share all the sweet moments.
And I too agree with Nams...loving SIL, FIL, parents are all OK but husband holds a special place. Appa is right in his grouse about being looked after by the servants. Nothing can beat when the person u love is there holding your hand and offering comfort, care, concern.
Best part: BTW I miss my guy and I measured and I am big and dude overwhelmed
