DH has such a big mouth and wants to tell everyone we're PG. I'm so not
ready to yet and he understands and will follow through b/c its
important to me. So our parents know right now and no one else. That
said, my brother lives five hours away and will be in town this weekend
so we decided to tell him in person. So I told my dad I'd let him know
when he knew so he could talk to someone about it, he mentioned it to
his wife, who apparently had a tangent about what about her kids? (who
are 18 and 23 and barely say hello to me when I walk into the house --
and we've known them since they were 3 and 8). My husband's brothers
don't know either and won't know until the end first tri. I was just
like Dad, we want to tell people in person. We'll tell that side of the
family when we see them in November. My brother wouldn't know either if
he weren't coming in.
The family politics of three sides, remarriages, etc. are getting absurd. I swear the amount of aggravation we're going through is ridiculous. I cry constantly about nothing except these stupid headaches and then call my mom or vent to you guys.
So I apologize for venting again but if anyone's been in my crazy shoes, advice is appreciated. I really can't figure out if I'm totally off base on this or what.
I guess I don't get why this is such a big thing to be crying over and whatnot. Why can't her own siblings know? I would 100% want to know what my own siblings are dealing with, and would think that mine would care enough about me to want to know too. And I come from a blended family and can't stand the whole "i don't want 'them' to know" mentality. What, do you have the golden uterus? Only the most awesome people can know what your uterus is doing when? And waiting til 12 weeks of all things to tell your own immediate family?
odd odd odd odd.
