My SIL is pregnant, Her and her partner have move 3hrs away from the family to start a new life. The first child that they had was placed in a adoptive family as they were both too young and involved in drugs and problems with the law. They are trying to piece her life back together. But both were still involved in heavy smoking and drinking.
I have been baby crazy for a year, and my husband and I are almost to a place to start ttc. My husband has told his sister that if they can't handle the baby that we will take it from them. He has said that we should put off TTC until her situation is more solid.
I want to both take their child because I know that my husband and I are "better" equipp to raise a child, and annoyed because I would like to get "my" family started. And that they could just get pregnant willy nilly with no concern for their future child or their own situation.
How do I get rid of my feelings of resentment

Are you infertile? I took from your post that you were not yet trying to conceive because your husband wanted to wait unil you knew things were settled.
I see how the bandwagon jumped all over how Amoms dont resolve their feeiings of infertility (ie. the bible according to Nancy Verrier) but it doesnt even sound like you have tried to conceive for any real time.
Your feelings of frustration are common place, there are people who go through their entire life by the seat of their pants, never giving any real thought to decisions and there are people who plan every detail. Such is life.
