Hit Me Baby One More Time!

I thought it couldn't get any worse. NOPE I was wrong. My sister in law is pregnant with her second. Yep, my nephew just turned one. My brother is 4 years younger. They will have their family completed by the time they are 30. I am happy for them but whatever for me.

My mom actually is the one who gave me the heads up. I was shocked. She actually called to freak out about it. She just can't believe they would want children that close together. I told her I was expecting it. She told me to act surprised when they tell me.

Grumps comment was, "Wow they sure don't have a problem getting pregnant."

Nope they don't. I didn't freak out. I did cry all throughout Brothers and Sisters. It helped.

Of course my selfish comment to Grumps was, "Why couldn't they have just waited a little bit?" HA!

Maybe my mom will get pregnant next. She would at least give me her baby!

JJ said...

Oooo Sunny....Im sorry this news hit hard. Does your sis in law know about all you have been through?
You did make me giggle over the comment about your mom=)
Always thinking of you sweetie, and I will toast a glass of wine in your direction tonight.

Ouch, Sunny! I am so sorry of this news. I balled all the way through brother's and sister's. Saying an extra prayer for you this week

This news hurts so much.. I hate how it feels, I'm so sorry.

GLouise said...

Ugg, those announcements always sting.
Thinking of you.

My husband's niece did the same thing. She knows about our troubles as well and not only that it was her baby shower I could not attend b/c I was having m/c #2. It doesn't stop them from moving on with their families, probably b/c they don't want to end up finding out there was a problem, which is what happened in our case.

We tell couples all the time. Don't wait to start. Don't wait to add. We are an example of what happens when you do.

I know it sucks and it hurts, but they will end up with their own troubles that you will be able to provide strength for. I just hope they are providing some for you now.

PCOSMama said...

Wow, that does suck! My sister got pregnant with #4 while we were still trying for #1. I think they tried for a month. It really stings, like the biggest slap in the face, but it's not something they do to hurt us. It's just that we can't help but feel slighted when it happens so easily for others. Unfortunately, they will never understand that. Hopefully your sis-in-law and brother will be tactful in their announcement to you and understand that you may need some time to recover from the news.

I too had a good chuckle over the comment about your mom. I love that you are able to keep your sense of humor through the rough times! ;)

Oh, crap. I'm so sorry.

Wordgirl said...

Ick.

I hate that kind of news. I completely understand...when I see my husband's ex-wife and her swelling belly -- sometimes it is frankly more than I can bear.

oh sunny. i'm so sorry you're hurting.

Lori said...

Oh man. That bites. I'm glad you got in a good cry during Brothers & Sisters.

Angela said...

You are continually in my prayers!!

Meghan said...

Ugg....so sorry, that just sucks. I keep telling my almost SIL that I will go completely clinical if my bro and her get pregnant before I do.

But I did like the comment about your mom ;)

Chris said...

Ugh! I remember well when I found that my SIL was pregnant with her 2nd . . . it was the day before my 2nd (failed) IUI. And then she delivered the month after my miscarriage. So, I feel for you. There is just no way for it to be easy. At least you can hope that they have difficult and spoiled children! Works for me . . ..

Chili said...

Ugh. I'm so sorry.

The Town Criers said...

Sweetie, I'm sorry. I also sobbed through Brothers and Sisters on Sunday.

Kim said...

I'm sorry :O(

Dreamer4agift said...

That sucks, I'm sorry:(

If my mom got pregnant instead of me, though, I'd prob shoot myself!:) Ok, that'd be extreme, but I'd at least lock myself up in the closet for a few wks.

Manda said...

Oh girl I can relate. I fully expect my mother (who might or might not be pre-menopausal) or my 23 year old sister -- both unmarried -- to turn up pregnant one of these days. Everyone else flipping has!! GAHH! So sorry. Why don't people THINK before they talk??

Pamela Jeanne said...

Ugh. I know that sucker punch sensation. It's so hard when it feels like everyone else laps us with one pregnancy after another...

Monica said...

Uggghhh.. how close by do they live? Can you avoid them for a few years? So sorry.

Bean said...

Oh I'm so sorry, I know exactly how hard that is. I like Monica's idea -- avoidance can be a great tool! Take care.

Oh. My heart just broke for you again. I'm sorry. (((hugs)))

Trish said...

Deep sighs of exhaustion for you.. it's all just so much..

niobe said...

I don't know why (at least for me, anyway) it seems to hurt so much more when it's family.
