shopping for baby clothes.... — The Bump
Trying to Get Pregnant

shopping for baby clothes....

while TTC is so hard.  My brother and his wife are having a little girl and i went to walmart today and tried to buy her something since we will be visiting them in less than a month...i couldn't even make it through 5 minutes in the baby section before bursting into tears....I felt so ridiculous....I'm so happy for them but deep down i wish it was me...I feel like such a terrible person...does this make be a bad sister/aunt?

Re: shopping for baby clothes....

  • Don't feel like a bad person.  I'm the same position right now.  My brother and SIL are having a little boy in a couple of months and as happy as I am for them and can't wait to be an aunt, it's hard not to feel a little jealous from time to time.

  • I sooooo feel your pain!  My brother-in-law and his wife just announced earlier this month that they are 6 weeks.. so now they must be close to 9.  My husband is younger than his brother, but despite that we got engaged first, married first and even bought our first house first... I felt that it was almost our right to have the first grandchild... it sounds so selfish when I say it outloud!  I am extremely happy for them because turns out they were trying for over a year and she is actually pre-menopausal already at only 28!  No lying though I still am jealous...

     And this weekend they are having a housewarming party where they will announce the pregnancy... I'm dreading that so much!!!!  I know everyone will either be asking or thinking ... "when are you two going to start a family"  I so wish I could blurt out... we are and it's harder than it sounds.... NOW back off!!!!!!!!!!

    Okay that vent felt better.. not jealous at all right!  Just keep swimming... swimming swimming.
