i predicted it

My sister in law is pregnant and announcing it tonight at dinner. I knew this was going to happen. I predicted it. She was nice enough to pull me aside to tell me which I do appreciate. Still I feel the sting of not being able to make my own announcement and I am bitter that she already has three. I mean is that fair?

Some small consolation is the raw seafood, soft cheese and margarita I've had so far today and I am looking forward to champagne at dinner. We get two thanksgivings this year today at my dads and tomorrow at my moms. I fully plan to eat myself silly and top it off with some cocktails.

I'm so sorry, I know how hard it can be hearing those announcements. Enjoy your cocktails!

Oh god. That's the worst. I am so sorry. Enjoy your cocktails tonight. I'll be having some, too, in your honor!

I know this news comes at a crappy time for you, many cocktails are coming your way.
I am glad she pulled you aside first, I have nightmares about being forced through a public announcement.
thinking of you....

Shit. I am so sorry. So, yeah, a fourth? Geez. Save some fertility for the rest if us. Cocktails are in order and all the raw fish you can manage. I used to live these holidays, and stupid IF has robbed the joy. My thoughts and best bartending love are sent your direction.

DAMN! After such a bruising week! I'm glad you got the heads-up, but ... damn.

Maybe it's just the IF bitch in me - but how RUDE!! Why does she have to "announce" it and put you on the spot like that? Yes, she pulled you aside but really?? That doesn't make it easier to save face.

Jennifer, I'm just catching up on your posts after some absence in commenting and I am just so so sorry. Sorry for your bfn, sorry that you have to deal with putting your life back together when seemingly everyone around you is pregnant. It's so hard to make sense of this world when happiness is dished out so unfairly.
I hope the soft cheese and champagne help, I'm thinking of you.
