So I wake up this morning to a text from my MIL saying my SIL is having a boy! Oh joy! I'm horrible for not feeling happy for her, but that's just another baby I won't be comfortable being around. I don't know why my MIL insists on sending me the baby updates, I mean c'mon it's only been (almost) 7 weeks since we lost Colton. Another friend of ours just had her baby boy a few days ago and my MIL sent me that baby update too. Wonderful, rub it in that their babies are alive and healthy, and mine is in a urn next to my bed!!! Why do people insist on doing this? Do they not have the common sense to know that it hurts for me to hear these things!? Do people really expect you to be over it this fast!? I told my Husband to talk to her and tell her to text these updates to him, because he can feel my mood out and know if and when to tell me these things. I haven't answered any of her texts, is that bad? How should I handle this? How do you handle being surrounded by healthy babies??
