My Bro-in-law and his wife announced that they were pregnant with their first child when she was 5 weeks along the beginning of Dec. My hubby and I have 1 son who is 11 months old and gave birth to a stillborn baby boy the beginning of Oct. We told people in Nov. that we were casually going to start trying again and we found out we were pg around Thanksgiving- decided to wait to tell everyone until Xmas if everything went ok(we got pg unexpect. 2 weeks after stillbirth). Xmas afternoon we made our announcement and my sister in law stormed off to their bedroom(they live with his parents) and did not come down to finish xmas celebrations or say goodbye. Everyone was quiet and only one person said congrats. My SIL has barely said anything to us since then and when we confronted my BIL about it he just says he doesn't understand why she is jealous and angry when our pg is mentioned. We sent a congrats card but how do we mend this?
she owns her jealousy whether it's about pregnancy, attention or anything. you cannot change her or her actions only yours. let her be with her jealousy and just be careful to not try and cause any unneeded drama to the family gatherings. just let her be with hers.
