I have three sisters (I'm the oldest girl, we also have an older brother), and the one closest in age to me has been TTC for almost a year now, if not longer. It broke my heart telling her we were pregnant, because I knew how hard it was every month when she'd get a BFN. She's due mid-January and her first appointments went very well (betas and U/S to date the pregnancy, since her cycles were pretty irregular and she'd *just* gotten TCOYF to start tracking the following month...). I am SO excited! I get to be pregnant with my best friend AND my sister!<br><br>
Unfortunately, she'll miss the family Thanksgiving celebration, since everyone is coming to me this year (from NE to TX). She's pretty sure that flying or driving that close to her DD isn't the best idea, and I *guess* I'm okay with that <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> . As much as I'll miss seeing her and showing off our baby girl, I can't think of a better reason to miss out. And all the more reason to get a webcam!<br><br>
*sigh* I just realized I will most likely miss her baby shower. I imagine they'll be having it in October or November. Okay, now THAT makes me sad.

Don't be sad, that is FABULOUS news! You'll both have your whole lives to meet each others babies and do "mom" things together! It is a little disappointing you won't make her shower, and she'll miss meeting your newborn - but in spirit you will both be there for each other.<br><br>
How exciting! I'm so happy for you!!

YAY! Congrats!! I had one of those weekends too (found out my cousin is pregnant due Feb & my S-I-L is due in Feb)<br><br>
I have three sister in laws & all three have been TTC for awhile (one for 6yrs, the other two for 1yr ea.) so I was thrilled!! The only thing that could make me happier is for the other two to get pregnant really quick and we can all have our babies together!! (all of us, plus my cousin, live within a few miles of each other)<br><br>
Another plus.... M-I-L now has her own daughter to drive crazy and some of the pressure is off me!!!

That's wonderful news! It makes my heart ache when I hear of couples having a little difficulty TTC and it always makes me smile when I hear of their success. My stylist had been TTC for over 2 years and they conceived a few months ago. I was so happy for her!
