SiL gave birth today to a 5lb 15oz girl.
She's so adorable and so teeny tiny.
Everything was semi-ok until SiL opened her big fat mouth.

She gave birth, DH and I go in to her room. Inlaws are in there visiting blahblahblah.
I'm minding my own business and SiL informs me that we just need to adopt b/c labor is too painful.
Yeah, she fucking said that to me.
I was already on the verge of crying from seeing the baby (not in a googoo awwww, wook at the baby kind of cry, but a bitter sob), and then that comment......
I had to dig down deep to stay where I was and not leave and cry.

I just don't understand how anyone could be that ungrateful for the experience given to them. Sure, it's painful, but it's for the best thing ever. And then to say that to someone who you know is struggling to have a baby???? Sigh........

Anyway... the baby is really cute. It was surreal seeing a LO so tiny. I've never been around a newborn before. I saw my 2nd neice when she was really small, but not that "new".

And here are my afternoon tests.
Still spotting, tests still getting darker.
I'll leave a message for doc tonight probably.

Your restraint is amazing . . . I would have punched her in the face. I'm sorry that SIL is such a punk.

Your test are getting way darker. I would def call the doc just to get things checked out. ((HUGS))

Wow...I can't believe SIL said that to you. I definitely would have made some sort of smart comment back to her that would have caused a fight.

And wow...your tests are getting way darker. How are you feeling about the tests? Are you at all excited or are you convinced that something is wrong? I am anxious to see how this turns out because those are some dark tests. FX for a great outcome for you!!

I don't think I could have kept my mouth shut if my SiL told me that. Her and I go rounds some days. Just started following your ttc journey. I am sorry that your test is still positive. I would be having a hard time with being overly hopeful. <3

I can't believe she said that. I'm so sorry.

That is so weird about your tests. They aren't just like can-you-see-it-if-you-squint tests, that's a dark test. And darker than your others. :S

Admittedly, punching a woman who has just gone through labor is probably the quickest way to turn everyone against you, but in this case it might have been worth it!

I am dumbfounded with these tests. It just makes zero sense at all :( I am still crossing my fingers for you that maybe things are happening afterall this cycle.

Your SIL makes me want to punch things every time you talk about her. She's clueless.

That woman is awful. Just awful. I'm so sorry she's so insensitive to you. What a jerk!
