For the last month now I've been going nuts with emotions. Things that normally wouldn't bother me have been really getting to me. The biggest thing that has been really bothering me is my baby shower. My mom and my step mom are throwing it for me, it's a surprise so I don't know when or where it is. There has been a big baby boom in the last year on my DH's side of the family. Last year his sister and 2 cousin's had babies and this year his other cousin and myself are expecting.
Well a lot of people from my DH's family showed up for all of the baby showers. I'm the last to have my baby shower because of course I'm not planning it. The thing that is upsetting me is when I was pregnant with my DD only 3 or 4 people showed up for my baby shower from my DH's side of the family. His own mother didn't even show up nor sent a gift and hasn't had very much to do with my DD since she was born and she is now almost 8 years old.
We went to my DH's cousin's house and his other cousin and his gf were there. They were telling us what they got, who was there etc.... On our way home I had a total melt down. People from my DH's family that live 3 and 4 hours away showed up for their baby shower. And my DH's mom was there and made them a gift like she did for all of the other showers last year. I got upset because I know that those same people that were at her shower and all the others won't show for mine and I know his mom won't show nor will she make me the same gift as she does for everone else.
I'm not sure why it's bothering me but it really is, I know it sounds silly to be upset about something like that but unfortunately it is. Is it just pregnancy hormones? My DH thinks that I have every right to be upset about it. I'm so lost!
