Yesterday a colleague mentioned that his wife is pregnant with twins. 6 weeks now. They had a baby about a year ago, and they don't want her to be an only child. He is 45, so he said if it was anytime, it would have to be now. So they are now pregnant. But they didn't WANT two babies. Just one.
And I understand worrying about health risks and such, but he was complaining about being up all night, and how is he going to manage. And how he has a hard time now with getting ailey (baby) to her appointments and getting up and not getting sleep, and it's been so hard.
So I told him he should just be really happy to have such a blessing. And that he is complaining and worried, but he will be very happy in the end.
He was very annoyed with that. I think I offended him, or hurt his feelings. I'm not sure. I just feel like a total jerk for not being understanding, and for getting frustrated with him. He's a friend. But it just is so hard to listen to people complain about what I think would be wonderful things to worry about. Since we started trying, they've been pregnant with three babies. :sad11: I guess I'm just feeling really sorry for myself today.
