  • I would pull her aside and talk to her one on one because that is completely out of line and inexcusable.

  • I"m really sorry for your loss, and for her awful behavior. My only advise is to remember that she is acting that way because of how angry and hurt she is by her own life circumstances. She's thinking irrationally and taking it out on you. It's wrong of her, but it's not helping you any to hold onto that anger towards her. I would imagine that if she ever does have a baby of her own she will realize how bad her behavior is and feel terrible. I'm assuming she can't have children and that's why she's so mad, right?

  • First ((((HUGS)))). The forgiveness is for you and not her.

  • I'm so sorry for your loss. Please give yourself time to grieve before even worrying about your sister in law. You may forgive her with time, but I think you're justified with feeling angry right now. Besides, anyone who is mad at somebody because they can have "free" babies is a half bubble off plumb. Tell your husband to keep her away until you feel better yourself.

  • PCOS can affect your fertility. She's probably just jealous. That doesn't excuse her behavior though.She still has a small chance of having a child with PCOS. Maybe she can look into adoption or invitro, or surrogacy. Going through one of these she still has the chance of having a child.

  • I'm so sorry for your loss. That has to be tough in itself without having to deal with her psychosis. While I understand that feeling of wanting to be pregnant and it seeming like everyone BUT you is, I would never begrudge someone else that happiness, nor would I be happy over their loss. That's just nuts. I think I would just stay away from her for a while. If you have to be around her at family functions, be polite but distant. She can only hurt you as much as you let her.
