Your sister is acting like a brat! It’s none of her business when you get pregnant, whether you own a house, how settled you are, etc!! She is a joy stealing ( probably jealous) BRAT!!!! I would personally ignore her and if she says anything, let her have it Bee!! Congrats on your pregnancy!!!!!

CONGRATULATIONS!!!! Sounds like you and hubby have a good life and sounds like a great environment for bringing a person into the world! Don’t take your sisters words to heart. Are you close to her? What is all this nonsense about nurseries and all this baby crazy stuff anyway. I get it, but personally see it as a pretty unimportant, if not the least important, aspect of having children – babies don’t need rooms; they need love and cuddles. It’s ok to feel disappointed by what she said, but don’t let it steal your joy 🙂

Re-read your first paragraph. The person you described does not need approval from an apparently jealous sister. Don’t give her the power to take away your joy with your wonderful news.

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!! (I’m sure that’s what she meant to say).

astromberg:  You are not being overly emotional. Her reaction was very hurtful to you of course. Sorry, like I said I’d keep my distance a little from her and if she says anything I wouldn’t hesitate to tell her how much she hurt you. But don’t overly stress about it! Not good for you or baby!!! Congrats again!!! All of the Bees wish you the best!!!

You sound just like me and my future hubby to be 🙂 We are both doing extremely well financially and worked hard to be where we are and after getting married next month we are going to be ready within a year for a family. And we also live in an apartment. Nothing wrong with that! When we find the right house, we will pounce on it. It’s what we both want, screw what others think! Keep your happiness number one. CONGRATS!

astromberg:  CONGRATS!! You’re sister seems to be the one that is most upset by this so called “race”! I’m so sorry that you didn’t get the reaction you deserve! You definately dont need the approval of anyone and I think you and your DH sound super responsible and mature. Theres’s absolutely nothing wrong with being in an apartment and it seems like your ducks are all in a row! You’ll find that house when you’re ready!

I’m sorry about your miscarriage I hope this one sticks and a happy and healthy 9 months!

Maybe you should look a bit more deeply at her reaction and the reason behind it. Perhaphs she has been TTC and hasnt been able to or maybe she also suffered a miscariage which you didnt know about and hasnt been able to fall pregnant since. Maybe you should as her why she feels that way she feels, surley there is more to it then a nice nursery and a jealous sister?

astromberg:  If you’re close then perhaps you could explain to her your situation and why you feel that this is the perfect time to start a family? Unless that would cause an argument or fight (I don’t know if she’s stubborn or open to conversation) in which case I would just say nothing. Sorry that it stings; hopefully she’ll change her tune in a few months, and when the baby arrives I’m sure she’ll be just as delighted as any aunt
