Actually sitting here having a meal sitting opposite my sister in law who is due to give birth in 4 weeks 😫
How can I cope? I feel like I should have been an actress! All she talks about is baby along with mother in law who is sitting 3 chairs down from me I’m on my phone to distract myself right now. Going to go to the bar for another wine I think! Period is due tomorow and I’m having my normal post period back ache. I feel like I’m drowning right now I know it’s not her fault and can’t wait for our nephew but it’s so hard
How to cope ladies??

Oh wow, I feel your pain. We saw our friends last night who told us the news that they were having a baby, how it was a complete surprise and that they weren’t even trying. Obviously I’m happy and excited for them but also so jealous and sad. I just wanted to hide. I’ve been on metformin for a few months as part of my ovulation induction treatment and have lost a bit of weight as a result. After they announced their baby news our friends kept saying seriously what’s your secret, how have you got so skinny. I just wanted to run away and cry. I’m considering just telling whoever asks actually it’s because I’m having fertility treatment and then people might lay off a bit. Have you considered telling your sister in law about your situation? Then she might be a bit more sensitive. Hope you’re ok

Hiya Thankyou for your reply so sorry what your going through it’s shit isn’t it! We haven’t even started any treatment yet, it really hits you when someone announces it because you feel like you will never get the chance to share such happy news ( how I feel anyway)
I don’t think I would tell anyone especially not my sil I have never really liked her tbh and don’t think she likes me either 😂

It is so shit! Yup I feel exactly the same. In that case definitely don't tell the SIL 😂. I guess we just have to try and relax about it and stay hopeful that it will happen for us and when it does it will be that much more exciting because we've wanted it for so long. It's really comforting to hear that someone else is going through the same thing though so thanks for sharing
