Found out this morning that one of R's little brothers 'knocked up' (my SMIL's words, not mine) his girlfriend, and they are due in April. And it might be twins...

I've spent most of the day hiding in bed trying not to think about it. I've cried. A lot. R has spent a lot of time consoling me and trying to tell me that everything will be alright.

Another 'oops' announcement. And on our anniversary. When we first started trying, I was so optimistic as to think I was going to be able to deliver a pregnancy announcement this time last year. Now the day has come around again and we're still not there. So many other people in our life are, and most of them by accident.

I think I could handle the waiting, in isolation. But all of these surprises are killing me.

    Oh yes, the surprises suck. I am sorry.

  2. Awwww, honey, I am so sorry. It just isn't fair.

    I can totally sympathize with you since SIL is knocked up too. And now she is lapping us twice since we've been TTC #1.

    Surprises suck. I'm sending lots of hugs your way.

    i had my fair share of those while ttc - it never got any easier. the last one being my SIL telling my she was preg for the 3rd time since i had started trying. i hardly was able to muster the words "congratulations" and immediately burst into tears upon hanging up the phone. it just sucks!

    btw - this is eryn from FF.

  4. :( Ouch... I'm sorry. Those hurt so much.

  5. I'm so sorry.
    The worst part is that you know they probably agonized over whether to keep the babies or not, meanwhile here you are.

    Stay strong.
    Anns xo

  6. Oh I hate those kind of surprises! It is just so unfair . . .

  7. Surprises and accidents really hurt. I'm sorry it has turned out this way. I truly am.

  8. "Oops" announcements along with "our first month TTC and here we are" announcements rule my life right now. I completely understand. It completely sucks.

    I am so sorry. **HUGS**

  9. Oh no, that really freaking sucks. I mean really! I may have to cry all day too. I'm sorry.

  10. I feel your pain... I think we all do.


  11. Ah. The sting of the surprises.
    I'm sorry this one is so close to home. *hugs* hang in's gonna be soon for you.
