Been there too. You are human with normal human emotions. We spent 2 years planning our wedding because I wanted to finish school first. SIL was more than welcome to marry her boyfriend any time in between then, we didn't care at all. We got married and three weeks later, she was engaged. Less than three months after we got married, she was getting married. Then a mutual family member made a comment to me that they waited so long to get married because we TOOK TOO LONG to plan our wedding and that's why "they had to rush and not take their time" like we did. It made me feel like I ruined my SIL's life lol. I also was jealous because instead of being an excited newly-wed it was all about her, planning her wedding and talking about her getting married. Everyone forgot about me. You can help the weird feelings that pop into your head. You're human.

My SIL and I were pregnant at the same time - our daughters were born 10 days apart.
I wasn't jealous, but my BIL was a real jerk because he thought his wife should be the center of attention since he was the "favored son." They were so close in age, that everyone else treated them like twins, but the ENTIRE time the girls were growing up, he made waves until they couldn't even enjoy each other. He still compares them at family get-togethers.
It's just human. I pray God will overshadow you with so much love that your feelings will dissipate ... and that you two willshare a special relationship with your babies (((hugs)))
