Flame Free Confessions

Haven't seen this post in awhile and I have one soooooooo let's go!

I am so irritated with one of my cousins. She lost her parental rights to her three children and they were adopted by another family. She got married last year, used the wedding money to get her tubes untied and guess what? She's pregnant. Guess what else? She's due FOUR DAYS AFTER ME. I already have hard feelings towards her because I trusted her and told her what was going on with my miscarriage last time and she went and told the entire family. Now she thinks we are just going to be best friends and have a double baby shower and our kids will be friends forever. Uh no. And she keeps complaining to me about how sick she is and she can't wait for her pregnancy to be over. My one aunt (her mom) sent me a not so nice email saying I was acting like a spoiled brat and I have to learn how to "share life experiences." I don't care that she's due so close to me. I care that she already lost three kids and decides she needs to have another.

Ok. Now let's hear yours.

Re: Flame Free Confessions

  • I'm so sorry she is acting that way. It sounds like she is the one being a "spoiled brat". I think a shared baby shower is a strange concept. You should be able to celebrate this pregnancy and birth of your baby without having to share the spot light with her.

  • I agree l. Plus we have totally different styles. She wants this huge fancy party and I would just be happy with a low key dinner and everyone just hanging out. I'm really not a fan of parties for myself. I love planning them for other people lol. and we may have different gender babies. My dad got super protective and told me he was not going let me share anything I didn't want to.

  • First of all, she shouldn't even be having a shower. It's not her first child. Even if she lost the first three, that was her choice to get pregnant again, and she shouldn't be making other support her. And if someone is insisting on her having one, then they should by no means be together. You have really different situations.

    And not to mention that if she lost three other children to another family, there is no way she should be have another. If she was deemed an unfit parent then, she still would be now. I hope that your family can protect that baby. And you have ABSOLUTELY NO REASON NOT TO BE ANGRY. I'm angry for you.

  • My confession: I really want a girl and I want to find out before, because I feel like I am going to need time to adjust to a boy, regardless of my mil thinking that you just have to be surprised and you will love the baby anyway.

  • Couldn't have said it better myself.

    I agree with your confession as well. We are finding out as soon as we can. I'm leaning more towards a girl but I just want a healthy baby and pregnancy. according to the old wives tale, the heartbeat was above 140 so it's a girl = )

  • There's nothing wrong with wanting a girl vs boy and vice versa. I keep thinking our next LO will be a boy when the time comes. Of course if we end up with another girl I'm ok with that too.

    Sex ultrasounds can be done as early as 13wks ;) we did that with Emerson and it was correct!

    Amber.... when I had my first ultrasound with Caden my OB guessed girl based on heart rate... she was wrong. LOL

  • My FFC, I always wanted all boys and no girls. It took me a few to adjust to the idea of having a girl when we found out. I wasn't over the moon excited. But it all worked out and I love her to pieces.

    My 2nd FFC is we haven't done the deed yet and I am so OK with it. LOL I may also be putting off moving Emerson into her own room for this reason....

  • oh I know it's an old wives tale...it's just fun to tease people with it lol.

    I have another appointment in three weeks when I'll be 15 weeks..so I'm hoping I get to schedule the ultrasound after that appointment...and it will be shortly after that lol. Ty's getting antsy. He really wants to find out plus he wants to see Sweet Pea on the ultrasound. He said it would make it more real for him.

  • My FFC is that I am mad at DH for no real reason.  He didn't read my mind on what I wanted for dinner, so now I am upset.  Not really mad but super annoyed.  This is so dumb.  He is trying and should not get any grief for me.  I think I am becoming a little bitter because I can't have dairy.  It upsets E's tummy.  So I am all like I can't do this and can't have that, and secretly hate J about it. 

    I need to get it together.

  • My daughters father has basically fallen off the face of the planet. A misses him and doesn't understand why she isn't getting to see him. I try to tell her he's busy, but she is getting old enough to figure things out. I called her grandfather and he said that her dad is in some sort of deep depression. Won't even get off the sofa. No job and no help. Feel bad for A, but glad D has stepped up to the father role.
  • Amber, I am 100% in agreement with you and everyone else that your cousin is crazy and you do not have to share anything with her. 

    Jen - I'm in the no dairy boat as well.  I'm already figuring that it'll probably last past pregnancy and into breastfeeding.  And yes I also get annoyed with P about it because of it.  I was super annoyed this morning that he couldn't be bothered to put the tea kettle on or start breakfast for Lily when I try to make his coffee if I am in the kitchen first.  It's not a huge thing but it made me so mad this morning.
