  • I think that is an ignorant way of looking at things, My SIL pretended that she was pregnant when I was pregnant with the 2nd grandchild of the family. She had the 1st grandchild of the family, and she was so jealous that the family was giving me and my daughter to be a lil attention, she faked pregnancy to 3 months, then said she lost the baby, and was so emotional. Too bad her husband told the whole family that she was faking because she was so worried about her son being replaced or treated differently with my daughter on the way...I just don't get it. Life should be celebrated not a threat to you!!! This child will and should be loved just as much as your son. That is your sister be happy for her, and don't act like a little child competing for attention!!!!

  • I am my father's only child, but I was worried he would treat my oldest daughter differently when the new baby came. And he did for a few weeks. I was shocked. All of the sudden he was treating her like she should be grown up now that there is a new baby and not wanting to pick her up...flat out telling her "you don' t need held...the baby needs held". I put a REAL quick stop to that. My mom was completely different. This isn't her first rodeo...my first was her, what, 8th grandchild? She is a pro at equal treatment. I hope it works out good for you.

  • My son was the 3rd Grandchild but 1st Grandson....My parents don't see my sisters kids often so mine gets most of the attention, though they do give extra lovings to my necies when they see them since they don't see them often.
