Don't tell me I'm pathetic or bash me please. I am fully aware of how silly and petty this is. I just want to get it out there and get talked down.
My husband has two older brothers. The older brothers are twins. He also has two step brothers. One step brother and both twins are married. At family gatherings I always feel like the odd man out when I'm with the women. It's like I'm back in high school and I'm trying to sit at the popular girls table but I don't belong there. The step brother and his wife live far away so we only see them on holidays but the other two are local and they seem to be getting closer to each other all the time. I feel sort of left out and soooo terribly uncool. When I first announced that I was pregnant the two of them sat together after dinner talking about how their lives were too important to have children. Then two months later one of them was expecting. I feel so lame around them!

It does sound like high school, and unfortunately some ppl never leave it. I'm sorry you feel so uncomfortable. Im one of those, when there's too many women I dont feel comfortable with, I go hang out with the guys. I just feel theres less to prove with men. Or go play with the kids! Eventually maybe, they'll realize theres a reason you leave when things start gettin like a hen house. And i'm sorry they made such a wonderful experience for you so little. Maybe when they come over you can plan to have a friend of yours over as well, so you have an accomplice. Good luck!
