So I am 9 weeks along in my first pregnancy and I need to know if I am just being crazy town due to the hormones or if it is okay that I am a little upset.
We just told my hubby's parents a couple of days ago. This is their 1st grandchild so they were thrilled. After about 5 minutes of gushing.... MIL started talking about how a few of the cousins have been trying to conceive and have had no luck. Apparently they have been trying for over 4 years. I had no idea about this and kinda started feeling a little guilty because, frankly, our little prego was a surprise. A very happy one though.
So anyway, she goes on to tell us that we might not want to "rub it in" when we see them at xmas (we live out of town). I mean I will be showing by then. But now, I almost feel like I can't be excited about my pregnancy around the family in the holidays. Like I can't talk about it. Or whatnot.
I would never dream of saying anything to deliberately hurt this couple, but now I just feel like me just being present is enough.
Am I wrong for being a little upset? Is it just the hormones making me overreact? By upset I don't mean angry or mad, more depressed and sad.
How would you go about this? I am very excited about my little bundle of joy, but when does it become not ok to be excited? The fact that I feel like I can't talk about it makes me depressed. What would be crossing the line?
Oh, and I might Delete after I receive some advice because I am pretty sure the cousin is on the bump or maybe even the nest.
