How do you tell your infertile family member that you're pregnant???

....I have two healthy kids already and hubby and I want more...this last month we were 'together' during my fertile time and of course we don't know yet but the possibility of a new pregnancy is there. We'd both be thrilled, of course....but all I can think about is the fact that my sis in law has been trying to get pregnant for almost 2 years, and just had her first round of IUI fail. I have no idea how to break news to her that we might have another one soon.

HELP please. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

  • I would just tell her the same way that you would if she weren't having difficulty. She is your sister, and she may be able to be excited for you, instead of comparing herself to you.

    Good luck.

  • Don't say anything until pregnancy has been confirmed.

  • step 1: see if your preg
    step 2: if you are say "im pregnant"

    no reason to be sympathetic for her, its only dragging you down
    her problems are her problems and your problems are your problems
