Hi everyone, just needed a little rant sorry! Over the weekend we went to see my MIL for the first time since our chemical pregnancy the weekend before. It was all planned and she knew what time we were coming. When we got there she was sat in the front reception room with my BIL even though they usually sit in the back one. As soon as we walked in our eyes landed on a huge box containing a buggy, and a number of mammas and papas bags, obviously all belonging to my SIL and her partner. I'm not sure if my MIL has purchased these things for them or if they had just had them delivered there but I found it really difficult..we had hoped we'd be soon buying these things for our baby and I got really choked.
It's just frustrating that she knew we would see them (you couldn't miss them!) and just didn't think that it would probably upset us and why couldn't she just put them (or us) in the other room 😩
You think people, particularly close family, have finally 'got it' especially when they know what's happened and how upset we've been, then they surprise you by being so thoughtless. I know it's just a fact that there will soon be a new baby in the family that isn't ours, and there are going to be lots of things we have to deal with during the pregnancy and afterwards but it would be easier if people were a little more sensitive!
My hubby was quite cross afterwards (not like him at all) and wanted to say something to his mum but I never want to rock the boat and make it look like I'm not happy for my SIL because I am. It's so hard isn't it! I think I'm also finding it hard because we have no idea what's next for us and we're really struggling to decide.
Thanks for listening lovelies xx
