Family Question

Brittany - March 30

I'm pregnant with my second child. My first and now second are both the first grandkids in the family. My sister in law isn't even married yet but I have been having this weird feeling that when she has children, a bigger fuss will be put on her pregnancy and kids...more than mine. Yea I know I married into the family so I'm not 100% blood but why am I feeling jealous when nothing has even happened yet?? My kids will get their glory being the only kids for awhile but when she has kids, I feel like mine will be forgotten. I mean, my dh's side never ask me how my pregnancy is or anything, I don't know. Does anyone feel this way??

You sure your not just being a bit sensitive hun? Its funny but I sometimes feel the same with my own parents. They never ask me how I am or how its going and yet my inlaws couldnt be more supportive. Not sure if its them or me but whats important is my daughter and now this next one are going be the light of my world if not theirs and its their loss if they can't see that. Also perhaps they figure you'll tell them if there is something wrong or any news.

I hear lots of women say that on a second pregnancy, they felt a bit more "ignored" than the first one. I don't think people mean to ignore or not ask - I think they just get used to seeing you pregnant and with a little one around all the time and so the newness has worn off a bit. I guarantee you - they will be SO excited to see that new baby for the first time! Our family is still buzzing over our second niece and had so much fun anticipating her arrival in the waiting room together. Babies are fun and special no matter who has them or in what order. :-)
