Through the past 6 years, I have dealt with the pregnancies of sister-in-laws, best friends, coworkers, etc. etc. It has been about 2 months since my younger brother told me they are PG, and I still cannot come to terms with it. I am the oldest child and grandchild, and always the first for everything. I know that sounds petty, but I just always planned on being the first to have a child, that my parents first grandbaby would be mine. It is so hard to picture my parents doting on this baby while I continue in my misery about my lack of one. On top of all of that, it is also hard for me to deal with the fact that my bro & his wife have been married for less than a year (me almost 7 years), and they have no health insurance and a rocky, tumultuous relationship. AND they got preggo because my dear sister-in-law didn't want to take her BCP because they made her nauseous, and dear brother didn't want to wear condoms. And they were still surprised. Duh. So...question is: does anyone have any experience with situations like this and how can I just move on, accept this, and just be happy for them?
