I wish I could be happy for my BIL and SIL. They recently told us they were expecting and my initial reaction was genuine excitement for them. I actually teared up, gave them hugs and felt honored they drove an hour to tell me, H and DS in person. Then I remembered how they reacted when we told them we were expecting at thanksgiving last year.
BIL: ??.? He didn?t? say a word. Not congrats, a smile or even a hug. SIL: ?oh. that?s exciting.? In the most monotone almost sarcastic voice ever. Then they went on, acting like they didn?t even care they were both going to become an aunt & uncle for the first time. Later they started to talk about when they have their children they are going to deliver at this hospital, how many kids, and do this and that, then went on the tell a friends? L&D horror stories. I had to ask them to stop, since I was the pregnant one and horror stories weren?t really helping my morning sickness. By the time we got home I was in tears, because they just didn?t care. They wouldn?t even ask us one question, when are you due, will you find out the sex, nothing.
Now that they are pregnant I feel like everyone is shoving it in my face how their child is basically curing cancer by being born. How they got pregnant on the first try (even though very close friends of them and us have been trying for almost a year with no luck) and telling us if it?s a boy they can just use all of DS things?TELLING us, not asking. Ok vent over. Thanks.
