Ehhhhhh I think I’d invite either both of them or neither.

She’s being a petty bitch but I think only inviting her husband is going to cause a shitload more unnecessary drama.

Wow maybe you can plan to give birth on her birthday or something! LOL!  This woman is off her rocker.  Stop interacting with her and don’t talk about her to others.  Just drop this lunatic and move on.

futuremrsl8 :  I wouldn’t send invitations to her or him at all, and just have your husband casually mention to her husband that “hey, we’re having an open house if you want to swing by” and if he’s in the wedding, he actually won’t need an invitation in the mail and let the cards fall where they fall.  If she shows up fine, ignore her with a nod and turn and if she doesn’t show, better yet!

If you share a lot of the same friends, she probably thinks if people go to your event first, they may not want to go out again and meet up with the same circle so soon (I’m almost 40 and need to spread out my outings for energy LOL) That being said:


This bitch is one of those girls who think she gets a birthMONTH not a birthday! 

Just stop engaging and hope things will cool down and come to their senses.

How far apart are all your events? I’d probably feel I was spending a lot of money and free time on one couple if I was going to housewarmings, baby showers and bridal showers and weddings all close together. However that doesn’t excuse the fact that she is crazy and you should happily let her stroll out of your lives!

Man… no room for that toxic crap in your life, with a new baby coming along and a wedding on the cards. Don’t waste your energy, you did nothing wrong.

ETA: Try for your second baby whenever you want. Having two kids in a row is SO normal, not to mention this is something that as human beings we aren’t totally in control of – it could happen right away, it could take 10 months. It’s insane for her to think that you could just snap your fingers and be pregnant to copy them.
