Sorry, I’m full of questions today. Here goes, bear with me.
My family has been friends with this other couple for a long time, probably 25+ years. We get together on the Friday night after Thanksgiving with a bunch of other families and have a big family Thanksgiving dinner. They are BIG wine drinkers, so there’s another drinking event I am trying to avoid. But not the real problem.
I found out that one of the daughters in law are preggo. Very early in her pregnancy and she didn’t need medication/help this time after needing it for her first. She and I aren’t close as I grew up with her hubby and not her.
I tried to get out of going, but my mom guilt-tripped me into going, saying my girl would love to play with the kids, that she’s been in my shoes, and another daughter would need me to talk to that night. So I’m going. :grr:
A- How again do I get out of drinking wine with this many people. B - How am I supposed to handle this woman? I’m not supposed to know she’s preggo. I’m happy for her, or as happy as one with infertility can be, but if she announces that she’s preggo that night, I’m going to lose it. I’ve already told my mother this, that I’m leaving if she announces, but I don’t want the attention on why I’m leaving.
Just don’t know what to do. I’m trying to be OK with this, it’s just really hard. If you’ve gotten this far, thank you. I appreciate this forum, where I can vent and be sad and still have friends.
