I mean, my filter does disappear, and I say things unpregnant me would usually keep in, but geez! I went off on my inlaws back in October because they forgot their only grandson's 4th birthday. They haven't spoken to me since. My sister in law is getting married in July. She used to text me all the time and we were really close, but after my falling out with her parents, she doesn't talk to me anymore. She didn't even let me know the day of her wedding...not that I would drag my newborn son across the country for it anyway. It's so weird to me though. MY family and I fight, but them we get over it and are good again. They've always said I was like another daughter to them, but I have apparently broken the camel's back. I'm not really looking to mend it. My husband doesn't care. They never call him. Never called me once for the whole year he was deployed. It's just annoying though.
That sucks that they're not more supportive and that you aren't closer to them. Sounds like it's probably for the best, though, but still, it must hurt to have them snub you.
I wonder too, if you are prone to being more irritable with all the pain you've been in? That can't be easy to deal with.
Well they just suck. Sorry they're acting like that. DH's family is kind of the same. They get mad and don't speak to whoever they're mad at for months. It's stupid. Thank Jesus my family isn't like that or this poor baby wouldn't stand a chance. Serioysly though, who forgets their grandsons bday, unless they have dementia. My grandma has all of our bdays on a calendar and still calls us every year to wish us well.
Oh and PS...I don't hate you when you're pregnant!!
It probably helps that we're all in the same boat together...we can relate to each others' aches and pains, and complaints about pregnancy. For our friends who aren't pregnant, I'm sure talking about it all the time annoys them somewhat. I'm grateful for JM!
