I totally understand why you’re upset. That was a crappy thing for her to do (or not to do). She should realize that she’s going to hurt your feelings by not responding. I responded to EVERYONE who congratulated me and got upset if I found out someone heard about my engagement but didn’t reach out.

the next time you see her, get in her face (with a smile) and ask if she got your messages, like you are still waiting for a response. Don’t let her get away with being so ‘caught up in the moment’.

Aww, I am 90% sure it is nothing personal and nothing on purpose.  It’s so hard to remember when people scowl at you at work 99.99% they’re having a bad day and caught up in their own problems and aren’t reacting to you at all.  She responded to some messages right away and some slipped by, it is totally normal.  It’s even possible she thinks of you and Fiance in one breath and sort of assumes a response to one is a response to both.

I agree with Arachna.  I completely understand why you’re hurt but I wouldn’t read too much into it, especially since it just happened this weekend.

I tend to think that if I have spoken to 1/2 of a couple, then the message will be conveyed to the other 1/2. She probably thought that since she talked to your fiance, he would pass along her thanks to you.

I’d probably be bummed too! Just remember that she has a TON of people congratulating her right now and trying to talk to her, so she’s probably really busy! I’m sure she’s very excited to be your sister! ๐Ÿ™‚

I’d be bummed.  IMO you should be one of the people she makes sure she responds to…  But, give it a little while.  She’ll probably catch up with things.
