My Little Sister Is Pregnant

...and we're not.
In the immortal words of Langston Hughes, "There's nothing more to say."
And I am a bad, bad person because I feel anything but pure joy.
Thanks for being there, people, 'cause if you weren't, I'd be all alone with my shrink! And my darling Co.

I have felt actively fucking miserable at other peoples pregnancy announcements. Let's be bad bad people together!

I know that feeling all too well! My little sister has 2 kids now, and each time, I felt horrible cause I was not 100% "happy happy joy joy" about it.

{{BIG HUG}}

oh ACK! When Kristin and I were trying (on our 4th cycle, beginning to realize that we were going to need interventions of some sort) my little sister at a dinner party started insinuating that she was pregnant with her (slimy good-for-nothing) boyfriend's baby. And I wanted to reach across the table and throttle her. Not only for being pregnant when we weren't, but also for being stupid enough to bring that fartknocker's genetic material into being (that sounds harsh, but he was really bad for her). It turns out that she wasn't pregnant, but I can only imagine how much worse I would have felt if she really had been pregnant and not just hinting that she was.

You are absolutely normal to have those feelings.

i had those feelings when my boss became pregnant accidentally (oops!) when we were desperately trying to conceive. Earlier today she left for the hospital with bleeding issues (she's 7.5 months along).

Suddenly you realize that over time, those feelings turn to pure support and concern. We are all waiting to hear something...

Sucks ass. That's all I have to say.

Aw, that sucks. It's awful to feel homicidal rage toward people who have what you want, then to feel the guilt because they're people you really love and wish well (unless it's those damn happy pregnant women in the mall). ::Hugs::

Where I live it is beyond typical to see pregnant women in stretch pants already pushing a stroller with 2 toddlers. Must be in the water. I hope.

All I have to say is, stay strong and love each other. It will happen for you and when it does, it will be all the sweeter.

I'm not pregnant, but I have to admit that one of my biggest concerns when getting pregnant with David was how upset Wendy would be :(
