I can't believe I let this upset me, but it did. My BIL leaves again tomorrow to go back to Basic Training (Army) after their holiday break. He invited my SIL, and other BIL and his wife to come along for a last evening out party thing. my BIL's wife is also pregnant, though only 16 weeks along. Yes, I realize how absurd I would look in a bar at 39 weeks pregnant, but still....why was I not invited???

Maybe they didn't want to hurt your feelings because they knew you'd have to say no? (not realizing you'd feel left out, of course.)

yeah, I guess I should have worded it better....I guess I know why they didn't invite me....I just don't know why it bothers me so much. It would look SO silly for me to go out to a bar, 39wks pregnant, and my DH in another state. I can only imagine what people would be thinking Why on earth am I upset?? lmao

I know just how you feel.

My neighbor and I used to run in the mornings. I got her started running and it was this special mommy time each day to make a friend and keep healthy. But now she has a new running partner. Boo hoo for me, right? Nevermind the fact that there is no way I could drag my enormous body out of bed and run, but for some reason I am whiny and feel left out.

I would guess that he was being gentlemanly and assumed that you would be more comfortable at home with all the comforts of a warm bed.

that would bother my too. this isn't exactly the same thing but my MIL took her two daughters and their children to the pumpkin patch this year and didn't invite me and ds. that really bothered me. i wouldn't have been able to go anyway, but it still bothered me that she didn't mention it to me and invite me and let me say, "no we are busy that day."
