As you ladies know, we still haven't spilled the beans. My cousin is dealing with an issue involving her 1 week old baby girl. She was born with a chromosome disorder as well as congenital heart failure, and they are not expecting her to make it. To me, this is not the time to share news that we are expecting. I planned on holding off for a few more weeks to give her some time.
Anyway, here's where I get frustrated....my MIL found out we were expecting. While baby-sitting, she was snooping in some books and found my 6 week u/s picture. We, to this day, have not told her that we are pregnant, and the u/s picture doesn't look anything like a baby. If you remember, I was super stressed because I thought my dates were off. Well, at church today, one of of DH's relative's comes up to me and says, "Congrats! I hear you're having another baby!" I said thanks, but then I asked her where she heard it from as we haven't told a single sole except my friend who lives 3 hours away. She said her mom told her. I asked how her mom found out, and she said DH's mom told her. First of all, I'm angry because she went snooping and found our u/s pic. Secondly, we haven't said anything to her or anyone. What if something had happened to the baby and I was no longer pregnant, or what if the pic wasn't even of a baby? Here she is running around telling everyone I'm expecting, and she hasn't even heard it from us. I'm so frustrated, and I probably shouldn't be....but this is our news to be sharing, and she's ruining it for us! I wanted to do it at the right time, and my cousin is more important right now. Even our children don't know yet....Sometimes I just want to pummel my MIL!
