Anyway, we haven't spoken in about three years, since I DARED to marry before she did. She believed it was her RIGHT to marry first and I somehow did it to spite her. I tried the whole "not everything is about YOU" speech and she almost hit me.
So in August she got married. Poor guy, he looks like a nice person too. Well, last night mom called. My sister is pregnant. She's due in November and mom told me. Sis swore mom to secrecy because she plans to call me in May and surprise me (she wants to keep it secret thru the first trimester). Mom said, "Maybe she'll have it on your anniversary and give YOU some baby luck." Of course, I have no intention of acting surprised. Sis told mom and swore her to secrecy so mom wouldn't be able to resist and would tell me. Ostensibly this will make me sad and jealous and prompt me to try and have a baby to catch up. But she will be first. I know how she works. It will be better on her ego to have the FIRST grandchild, not the only.
I am worried about this. I can TOTALLY imagine my sister freaking out. She can't stand ANYTHING taking attention from her. She will ADORE being pregnant, but once the baby is born and it isn't all about her anymore...ugh. She doesn't even LIKE children...all she wants is my mom's approval. I can actually see her doing some Andrea Yates on the kid if it won't stop crying. If anyone thinks *I* am impatient, sis takes the cake.
I just needed to share with people who understand.
