Pregnancy competition

 Do you know anyone who wasn't planning on having anymore kids but immediately got pregnant after they found out you were? This seems to be happening a lot in my small circle. My XSIL got pregnant earlier this year and once my brother found out, him and his current wife suddenly decided they were going to try for one. My brother went and got his vasectomy reversed and everything.

I had a baby a year ago and my sd's bm met a man in November of last year, married him in March of this year...and is now due to have a baby in December of this year.

Don't get me wrong, everybody's free to have kids whenever they want...but has this happened to anyone else? Btw, bm turns everything into a competition but I'm happy for her because she's having a boy which is what she wanted when pregnant with sd.

When I got pregnant with my first my sil said finally the pressure is of me. She ran and got IVF months later. I'm pregnant with my second I have a feeling she's gonna do it again. if I had 6 kids she'd have 7! Unfortunately for her she's 38 she's bound to run out of viable eggs.before I do.

My sister in law is too "scared" to have kids.
And I don't know many people who are at the age to have babies. I'm young.

But I am sensing some planning on your brother's part. And your sd's bm. For sure.... lol.

Yes, they've been ttc for over a year. I just happened to conceive around the date we wanted to conceive. It's gonna be a competition because that's how my SIL is. She thinks she's better than me in every aspect of life. I don't really care. I was gonna throw a double baby shower but I don't want her thinking I'm "stealing the attention."

Does she have issues badly with fertility?

It might be annoying, but maybe that's the only time she has to be relaxed and not feel pressured. :/

My SIL goes through that.

So this went on for over a year. ( I never believed a word of it,nor did dh) well about a year ago it came out she was lying tho WHOLE TIME ! Yeah... no baby,no nothing ! She only admitted it b/c her bf was breaking up with her b/c she lied to him about being pregnant and got called out on it !
