crazy mother in law

Anyone else have one? This lady is really pushing my buttons here. She acts like im ruining her son's life even tho we planned our baby. My husband and I have been best friends since elementary school and she was always very nice to me. I made the wrong choice and friend zoned him and ended up having a son from someone else but my husbands mom was always like "I know y'all are gonna be married"  and telling my son "you're gonna be my grandson one day"

Now that we are married and expecting shes freaking out. She keeps acting like we're 16...we're 22 and I realize thats really young but she had no issues with me or my son before. Now she wont stop lecturing me and reminding me that she was 32 when she had her first child. :(  I dont feel like being young is an excuse to be a bad parent and my husband and I are great parents.

My husband is in the army and I had to quit my job to mover with him. His mom was pressuring me to find daycare so you can go back to work and then at the same time says " my husband was a E7 when we married, we weren't poor like you and I didn't have to work because a pregnant woman shouldn't"

And I forgot to mention shes an alcoholic but my since my husbands dad achieved a lot before he died she thinks shes better than me. I had no idea in laws could stress me out so much.
