Hi ladies, I know so many of you have been here, or are currently in this situation at the moment so any words of wisdom would be much appreciated..
Last night my husbands sister (who I am close to) came round to tell us they are expecting. They have told us first as they know our situation and chose to tell us privately instead of at a recent family dinner for which we are so grateful..I'm not sure how I would have coped if they'd told the whole family while we were all together..worrying about others looking at us for our reaction would have been too much to bear.
The fact they have been so sympathetic to us though, just makes me feel even worse as a person because we're just so so sad for us. They are a lovely couple and will make great parents, but we've been so sad since last night because we just want it to be our turn too, and after 3 failed IVF''s & years trying naturally, you can't help but panic that maybe it never will be..
I feel so conflicted because they deserve it but I can't help thinking so do we 😢 I'm dreading the excitement of the family once they find out, my mother in law in particular has made no secret of her longing to be a grandma for a long time now and I'm not sure how I'm going to cope with all that. I know many of you know exactly how this feels, just want to not feel so alone & like a terrible person for thinking of myself at a happy time for someone else 🙁
How do you get through it ladies? I know it was always going to happen to someone close, I guess I'm just not equipped myself to deal with it when it does out of the blue xx
