Posted by   + Show Post
I'm glad everyone is okay because it didn't go easy but damn...when is it going to be my turn? First grandkid too. :-(

Well, that sucks!  Why not, did she say?  I very well might have slapped my sister if she hadn't let me hold her baby.  Which sounds just awful - but I can't imagine not letting a sister hold your baby (unless she's sick, but I'm assuming that isn't the case!).

Seriously, I would have loved it if any of my sisters had come to visit me in the hospital when either of my boys were born!  Or any of my brothers - or any of their spouses.  Or my parents.  I live at least 3 hours from all of them, though, so no one was able to come.

She wouldnt even let me touch it.

Quoting GoldenLinds:

So you snuggle that baby. My cousin had the first greatgrandchild and I was a little bitter but I snuggled that baby and my grandpa made it all better because he said that that look really syited me and he couldn't wait until I had babies. And if you have to cry in the lobby where your dh and parents can hug you and tell you they know you will be a great mommy when the time comes.

What the hell?!  Sorry, I didn't read all the replies before my last reply.  I definitely would have slapped a sister for that.  I'm really pretty against violence, too (or swearing for that matter).  That is about the lowest blow she could have dealt.

Quoting storkneedsgps:

Because I'm "barren".

Quoting littlemonaghan:

Why...?

I've had some people think I'm going to contiminate them. My mil doesn't want me to attend sil wedding for this reason.

Quoting littlemonaghan:

She wouldn't let you hold her baby because you don't have any of your own yet?!?



What did she think you were going to do? Snatch the baby and run down the hall?

WTF?!! That's absurd!! I am so spitting mad and hurt for you that I might puke. Honestly I am so sorry.... but I am officially adopting you. Your family is insane for treating you like that. You are an amazing beautiful woman. You come on over for Thanksgiving. I don't have any sisters:-) We'll rustle up a few vabies to rub their baby magic all over you;-)

I can relate.  I am the oldest and didn't have the first marriage or grandchild.  I am the first and only stepparent though.  That has been an interesting journey. ;-)

My family doesn't really know I'm having issues with infertility, so I haven't taken it personally that everyone is thrilled about the babies.  And I love them to pieces!

Quoting GwenMB:

It does suck. I'm the oldest and kinda thought I should have had the first grandkid too. Instead I watched 5 younger siblings get married and have babies before I did - and I had grandchild #13 instead.

It really sucks.
