Venting about my cousin's pregnancy

My cousin is two months younger than me (we are both 26), and due at the end of February. She is a compulsive liar, and you can't believe anything she says (well, my extended family does to a point)-a good example is her being in undergrad 8 years, taking "24 credit hours" every semester, and dropping out this year with nothing to show. She went from not knowing who the daddy is to "well, it could be one of three" to her saying the dad wanted nothing to do with either of them (my guess is that she lied to him about being on the pill to trap him into marrying her). My aunt is a drug addict (I used to stay over at their house in middle school until I caught her and husband #2 smoking pot) and not working either (like my cousin). They got kicked out of their semi decent apartment for not paying rent, and are now living on the most dangerous street in their city.
Every holiday with her is the same thing...Cuz comes with her hand outstretched for stuff, and leaves. Yesterday was no different. My uncle and grandma threw giftcards and cash at her! ALL we did was talk about how GREAT of a mom she will be and how AWESOME her baby is going to be. I don't begrudge the kid, I really feel sorry for it. I just don't need it rubbed in my face about how great she and her baby are. The worst thing is that if I were to get pregs with my boyfriend, I'm 100 percent positive I wouldn't get the same support from them-because I am a functional adult and they wouldn't think that they needed to support me. Retarded.
To top it all off, Cuz came with her 28 page baby registry (keep in mind she is a minimum wage health aide), threw it at me, and said "Cello, you make the big bucks (not really-I work two jobs), so I expect something good!!"
