Well the holidays are over. I have almost made it through an entire month of knowing I am pregnant without going totally insane. I did not make it through without pissing off at least one member of Clark's family.
My SIL. Yup, she did not take the baby news well. She is getting married in the spring and is feeling 'slighted' as my MIL described it. Both Clark and I feel she is being totally selfish, not to mention a few other choice names I have called her over the last week. But I mean come on, really. A tad immature do you think?
She totally knows how long we have been trying and our whole infertility story. So needless to say, I felt an irreparable rip in our relationship, which I must say was quite good by in law standards. But I don't know if I will ever feel as close to her as I once did. I can't help but see her differently as a person now.
Not only does she feel that way, she makes no apologies for it and actually said it to my face. Granted this is the first grandchild, but I am not due until August, way after her wedding is over. I am not in the wedding (they are doing a small destination wedding with only immediate family and a few close friends), so that is not a concern. She just feels the focus will be shifted to us and our baby instead of her wedding. For the love of God! Can people just be normal.
Anyway, I am not letting her rain on my baby parade. She is entitled to feel however she wants and I can just ignore and bask in my own glory. Which is what I fully intend to do. Although I did have a bit of a rant to Clark about it.
3 days until the first u/s. Trying not to hold my breath! I feel good. A little touch of morning sickness and tired, but the holidays and the week I took off really recharged me. Now I just need to shift my focus to work. Easier said, than done!
