a tad upset
Hey ladies- just a few lines of venting. When we found out I was preg, it was needless to say not a planned event, but, i most welcomed one. It took my parents about an hour to get over the shock and have been nothing but excited, supportive and congradulatory since. In fact I have a huuge family and the are all thrilled too. As well as all my old family friends, most of whom have known me since I was like a few monthes old. My dad's business people also have known me forever so they are all suppper excited. So youmight be saying whats the prob then? It's Jed's mom. Although she has been fine about everything, she has not one shown excitement or congradulated either of us, i feel she looks on it as a slight burden rather than anything else. She is much more waspy than my family is, we are over expressive artsy jews, ha. Anyway my mom got save the dates and a baby/engagement announcments that we sent out. And
i come to find out she did not send any of hers out. it really hurt my feelings, although i know it's not personal, i would think having a grandchild should be an exciting time for all.
I had Jed bring over the actually invites, we gave her ten and he said she could only think of four people to send them to since jeds uncles,aunts and so on live so far away. Jed and i are sending out about 12 and my parents are sending out like 60. My immediate family either live in NJ, NY or CA. We are all very close knit. I guess I just feel weird my family/friends are so excited when jeds mom seems to non caring. She is very nice but never has been over thrilled with jeds life, she is more into his sister who is very by the boks, went to brown now going to harvard law, ect. I dunno. I just needed to vent cause jed doesn't get why her actions and feelings matter to me. He also said he highly doubts she'd come into the city when i;m inlabor to meet the baby right away. weird.
any advice? insight?

- Monday, 3 Aug My in-laws are kind of the same way. My family was jumping for joy but his was just like "congrats" and that was IT! No smiling, no nothing. I was disappointed. They need to lighten up a little. You're 26 so even an unplanned pregnancy shouldn't be that big of a deal!
