We are not close, I've known her since we were 14. She has done some really evil things to me in the past (within the past 5 years) and I have just now been able to let go and somewhat forgive her and my husbands entire family for that matter. We are all cordial now but I don't trust them. Like I said this is my first so it would've been great to just be pregnant alone lol but great that my baby has someone in the future to play with.
Ugh. Get over it.
With my second child my SIL and I were due at the same time and had our babies 1 day apart. They are not compared, we were not compared, we just enjoy having sons that are buddies and can hopefully be friends through life. We wish we lived closer to them because we only get to see them a few times per year.
With this pregnancy I am due 3 months after a different SIL (her first). Thankfully she is less worried about being the center of attention and more excited about her baby having a family play buddy for holidays and such.
This whole idea of "thunder stealing" is all in your head, girl. Nobody cares about your pregnancy as much as you - whether you are the only pregnant girl in the world or one of millions (which happens to be the case).

No more TTC for us. We are done, and at peace, as a family of 4.

First of all, CONGRATULATIONS!! I don't think anyone can tell you that enough! I completely understand how you would feel especially if there have been tensions between them. I would be like 'Damn! This was my time to shine!' lol
Ignore any negative comments, you are here to share things on your mind so don't make any apologies or excuses for how you feel or what you post!
I hope you and your husband have a happy and healthy nine months! I am so excited at the moment, how are you. Is this your first too?
