My SIL insisted on getting married before her brother (my husband) and finagled her wedding to be 10 weeks before ours. Approximately a year later, she announced that they were going to try and get pregnant.
We had planned to wait to get pregnant until around the 2 year mark and have even mentioned it in passing once or twice throughout the time we were engaged and early in our marriage. We found out we were pregnant on our 2 year anniversary (how’s that for timing?).
We had his family over for dinner to announce it (minus the SIL and BIL who were married and trying – they live out of state and were unable to come to the dinner). The first words out my my MIL’s mouth when we informed her that she was going to be a grandmother for the first time? “What does SIL think about this?”
It took nearly 2 hours for even one of them to say congratulations. This is the first grandchild for my MIL and of course the first niece or nephew for my 3 SIL’s (who all love children and the two who aren’t married and trying to get pregnant have been begging their sister to get pregnant pretty much since she said “I do.”).
