Is this going to be an issue?

So we were NOT expecting this pregnancy, let me make that clear from the start. Anyway, my Bro and Sis-in law are also pregnant, planned, and it's their first. They told us in August . We got pg in September. She's about 10 weeks ahead of me right now.
My Hubs seems to think that SIL will be mad because we are pregnant so close to their announcement. He thinks she'll see it as us trying to "steal her thunder." I thought he was crazy...I know I would be thrilled if the situation were reversed, but I checked out other sites today and it turns out that there are a ton of posts about this very issue and the SIL in almost EVERY case was pissed off.
So what do I do. Obviously there's nothing I can do about being pregnant now, but how would you handle this potentially sticky situation. I don't want to have to temper my enthusiasm because I don't want her to be mad.
