Yeah, you guessed right. It’s time for another prego announcement and it definitely isn’t mine!
It’s my sister.
Yes, you read that correctly.
She got engaged last Saturday (as in just over a week ago). Friday afternoon, she contacted the family to discuss doing a destination wedding THIS December. Through our convo, she admitted to me that their timing is based on the fact that she’s pregnant!
W. T. F.
I’m not sad. I’m not mad (even though she did lie to me after calling numerous times last month to ask me questions about trying to conceive).
I’m just a bit shocked.
I knew they started trying. I wasn’t sure how serious they were and I didn’t expect another ”first month trying” prego announcement.
Why does this happen with everyone around me – sister, both sister-in-laws, my best friend’s wife?
I am even more disappointed in how my Mom and her reacted to our IVF especially since they both were aware of her pregnancy then.
Wake up people! When are you going to finally see that a whoopsie pregnancy is not in my cards?
Besides another niece or nephew, the best thing about this situation is that my sister’s drama-filled life will take some of the attention off of our upcoming IVF cycle. Score one for us.
I’ve said we will try to make it to the wedding. Most of my close girlfriends think that we shouldn’t even entertain the idea of going. Who knows what will happen between now and December?
No matter what, she still is my sister. I am happy for her fiancé and her.
I just wasn’t expecting all that this week… Life has a mysterious way of throwing you curve balls. There’s no doubt about that.
