Another SIL story.......
Mon, 07-12-2004 - 1:00pm
Hello Everyone,

I thought that I would share my story about my SIL. After having 2 m/c and not children I'm very sensitive about the whole pg topic and being happy for people that are pregnant, and I know it has not really to do with them it's just that my emotions are so out of wack, sometimes I don't know how to deal with them. I just found out last week that one of my SIL is expecting baby #3. She just had her second back in Oct 2003. Her husband told her that he is not having any more kids with her after baby #1, but guess what they are on #3 already. I guess by DH knew about it for few weeks but hasn't told me anything, I don't blame him I would be probably very emotional about it. Sad to say my SIL is one of those women that got her husband by planning the 1st pregnancy, because he did not want to have anything to do with her beside sex, and he also said that would never marrie her. Well guess what they are on baby #3, she moves out of the house, and he is staying in their home, doing a lot of partying and drinking. She is one of those women that is like size 3 and she says that she is fat all the time, and she probably only gains 10 lbs total when she is pregnant. Their marriage was never happy, they got married 2yrs after their first son was born without his parents blessing and with everyone being against this marriadge. Now after two yrs they are I guess seperated. And she also claims that she is one of those that get pregnant while on bcp, whatever. I bet now she didn't even take the bcp because her religion forbids ber from taking or using any kind of BC. Deep inside I wish her luck, but am still having hard time with being around her with another pregnancy.

Good Luck
