Hopefully that won't happen, and it if does, I hope I have the grace to react well, at least to their face!
I completely understand where you are coming from. And of course it seems like every female in the world except for US, is pg. When my brother in law called to say they were pg, I was just crushed. Let me apologize before I even think this, let alone say it, but in my distraught mind they didn't deserve it. They have taken money from both of their sets of parents because they can't stop spending it and can't keep up with their debt. My MIL is still paying for his car insurance, and they have been married almost 3 years (less than us may I point out). They just were not at the right point in their lives when I looked at it. Then, to make things worse, we found out right after my FIL passed away, and when they were here for the funeral I watched her take her BCP... turns out they got pg on their FIRST TRY!!!! Even after her being on BCP for a number of years.... HELLO! They wanted to tell me themselves, and dh had to let them down and tell them that he would let me know... they didn't know about our IF at that point, so once I calmed down I told dh to call and explain so that I didn't look like a complete lunatic, only a partial one at least.
But, then I have this friend that had an eptopic for her first pg, and when they got pg it just didn't bother me. I truly felt happy, albeit a bit jealous.
But when is it OUR TURN???!!!!
