My sister tried to get pregnant for 10 years. She had an ectopic and had to have one of her tubes removed.
They did in vetro and it was successful. They now have a 3 year old girl.
They came to terms with this being their only child. They gave away all their baby stuff and have moved on from the dream of having more children.
A few weeks ago she found out she was pregnant! Total surprise, and medically basically a miracle due to her infertility.
Today she had an ultrasound and found out it was ectopic and is currenty waiting for surgery.
She hasn't told anyone, but my mom is with her and called me crying. Apparantly my sister is devastated and says she can't survive this.
The kicker is that I am pregnant. I have not told anyone, but I am about a week farther along than she is.
How in the world do I tell her that I am having a baby, and will be due about a week before she would have been. I can't do that to her...it seems so cruel for her to now have to watch me go through my pregnancy and have a niece of nephew always in her face, reminding her of the baby that would have been exactly the same age. I feel just sick for her and I wish I could fix it, and instead I am probably going ot make her feel even worse.
And I'm not even supposed to know about this
