Yesterday was my first PN appt.

We went in, spoke to the doc and she surprised us at the end with an U/S - the baby is big enough that we could use an abdominal US, no need for vaginal! I'm measuring 8w3d, 3 days ahead if you count by LMP or 2 days behind if you count by Ovulation date. Either way, I'm very happy. HB was 170 and we could see it fluttering away and it was good and strong over the speakers. My son did not know we were expecting so when it dawned on him what he was seeing he was super excited.

So today MIL shows up and DS BLABS about the baby. MIL is FURIOUS. Her daughter has been trying for a year now and is also expecting (we think twins) in mid-sept like me! MIL doesn't want her daughter to have to share the spot light.

I have to admit, I'm NOT happy about SIL expecting as well. I don't like her (there I said it). DH and I call her and her husband the moron twins, because they are absolutely clueless about everything. She professes to love kids, but screams and yells at any of her young nieces or nephews for the slightest offense. She nearly passes out when a dirty diaper or puking baby is near her.

I don't know what is wrong with me, I'm just so mad about it. I feel horrible that I feel this way at all. I certainly don't want to be negative about anyone's pregnancy. I guess I'm just being a spoiled baby about it. I'll have to get over it.

Thanks for listening girls! Be well and BFPs to you all!!

Hello friend!

Oh--MANY MANY MANY congrats on your baby!!!!! <3

Yay--no more vaginal u/s! GAWD, I hated that fricking wand!! How cool was that for your DS to realize what he was seeing....so sweet

Ok....hope I say this right...I don't think you're being a spoiled baby (there, I said it ). I don't understand those who have kids who constantly are yelling at their other kids or other people's kids---I'm always thinking "don't you see what a gift these children are???" Every mommy and daddy has a bad day (or ten) but some take it waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay out there with the yelling and screeching---and when I hear those type folks want *more*, I'm scratching my head wondering....why...? As for your MIL, well sheesh lady---just enjoy that you'll have another grandchild to love and that since they'll be close in age, maybe they'll be good pals ....just trying to think positive . Forgive me as well---I've had such negative IL DRAMA for years---when my MIL found out and how she found out (LONG story, the relationship between her and DH had been sour for years due to actions of hers from YEARS before I ever met my DH, but of course, that's all still somehow *my* fault ) anywho---she was furious too...babies are definitely to be CELEBRATED IMHO, but there are definitely those who get angry about 'their' spotlight, or those who try to make your pregnancy about themselves. I have to pray extra hard for those folks as it boils down to I didn't get pregnant with my husband in order to make someone else happy....know what I mean...? I hope that didn't come across too snarky.
I am *NOT* giving up...and fingers crossed and best wishes to all on this site!

Great news about your baby

You're not wrong with the way you feel. MIL isn't being very fair. She should be just as happy for you!!

Glad to hear everything is going well with the baby.

Some people are just like that, but I wish your MIL was being nicer.
