So I am getting married next month, and I am completely jealous because my sister in law is pregnant and kind of taking of mine and my soon to be husbands time to shine. She had her baby shower the week before our wedding shower and she isn't even due until October!!! I am getting really annoyed, and I have a feeling that I am getting close to saying something to her but I don't want to cause any problems! Do you think I am over reacting?

  • I think she is just excited about being pregnant, as long as the attention is on you for your day ect. I would just let it go. You'll be just as excited when you have a baby (if you haven't already)

  • At your wedding, are you planning to do the bride and groom dance? If so, get down and boogie. Congrats on your wedding.

  • You do not want to say something and have everyone pissed at you!! Just smile and be a great sister in law. Your celebration will be what the two of you make of it, don't make it negative by being jealous its so a waste of time!! Start being a big happy family by ALL getting along.

  • I would have to say yes. You should be focused on the fact that you are getting ready to join your life with your fiance's life. Why be jealous of something you have no control over. All you are doing is causing yourself more undue stress when you should be happy that you are becoming an aunt and getting married in the same year!

  • pick your battles. frankly i'd let this one go. i seems your preceiving something that may not be there at all. just don't tell her the next time your doing something until the last minute so she can't plan anything else. what else is there? probably nothing.
