My biggest fear about celebrating Christmas with my husband’s family is that one of the married cousins will announce that they are pregnant.

I don’t know if I could fake a good response after being ambushed like that.

  1. Yikes! I totally feel your pain. The other thing that sucks equally as much as that is when all your relatives find out the one cousin is pregnant and then they all come over and that’s all they can talk about and, “oh by the way, when are YOU gonna have kids?”

    Do you know if they’re trying or you just have a gut feeling? I really hope that doesn’t happen for you! But I understand. We even put hanging out with certain friends on hiatus for the last 6 months because of the same fear. Well, I hope it all works out for you!

    • I don’t know if they are trying but, since everyone except us has gotten pregnant in the last few months, I wouldn’t be surprised. If everything goes well this cycle, we could be pregnant by then too or I could be drinking everything the aunts can hand me 😉

  2. I completely understand that fear….. about 2 years before we got pregnant (so 4 years into trying) one of my cousins (who had just been barely dating this girl, they were younger then us and were on the rocks if they would even be staying together) announced they were pregnant earlier in the year (she was due at christmas time) I didn’t spend thanksgiving with my family that year because I didn’t want to hear everyone talking about her pregnancy all day and listen to her complain about how uncomfortable she was. My mom thought I was selfish and was really mad at me for not going but I didn’t care I had been married and trying for multiple years with no success I was older and had a good job and still nothing they were young barely knew each other the family didnt even get along with her and bam she was pregnant and all of a sudden she was the center of their world…. I’m not sure what I was more mad about those things or the fact that she was the one giving my grandparents their first great grandchild when It should have been me… oops enough about me… I hope your family has an uneventful holiday season unless it turns out to be yours lol…
