- Wedding: May 2013
Let me start this off with: I HAVE NO RESENTMENT THAT SHE’S PREGNANT! I AM THRILLED FOR HER AND HER HUSBAND!!!
My sister [A] got married in August..
I was not asked to be in her wedding until about a month prior..
She was asked almost as soon as I was engaged (Christmas of ’11), before she was married…
Now, all of the sudden, because she is pregnant, my entire family’s focus went from the excitement of my approaching wedding.. To her baby.. (Honestly, I expected this).. Fh and I were really looking forward to Easter, to get to finally talk about wedding details with my mom’s side of the family.. Instead, sister announced her pregnancy, Fh and I were put on the back burner.. FH was really hurt, moreso than I was, because I expected it, as soon as she told me, all hopes of my wedding being about FH and I were gone.. He had never seen the favoritism my family before this, and he now understands why I was so anxious when she told me about her pregnancy.
Now that all of my wedding events are starting to roll around, she’s getting pissy with me.. Her dress came in, and our little sister (my JR bm [K])’s dress came in.. I was excited to go with BOTH of them, TOGETHER to get the dresses, as was agreed upon a very long time ago.. At our Alfred Angelo, you have 14 days to pick up your dress.. We agreed on Easter, that the following Saturday we would pick them up.. Saturday came and I sent them both a text (sister and mom) asking when we would go to get them.. Mom said any time after noon was fine, as little sister was at a sleep over (fine with me!) and wouldn’t be home until noon.. Sister A threw a HISSY FIT because she wanted to go FISHING!! o_O.. I understand she enjoys fishing.. Not a big deal, except that we agreed that we were going to get the dresses that day.. Sister A dropped out, than mom and Sister K decided they didn’t want to go either.. UGH..
Later that day I get a picture message from A saying “here’s the dress” .. She went to get it after the hissyfit.. After noon… I let my mom know that A had picked up her dress.. Mom told me that I shouldn’t take offence that because sister A is pregnant she will have her fits.. EXCUSE ME!? She can have a fit because we AGREED on something and she changed her mind??!
How do I help but feel jipped because things for my wedding are being pushed back because of her pregnancy? How is pregnancy an excuse for being a total and complete flippant bitch??! Please help me bees, please…
AGAIN: I have NO resentment towards her pregnancy, I am exicited to have a niece or nephew!
