I'm feeling better after finding out that I'm going to be an aunt again. This will be my sixth niece/nephew conceived since we started trying to conceive over 6 years ago. I guess it doesn't get any easier with each pregnancy announcement (intended or not) when I first hear it, but I do get over it.
I made it through Saturday night dinner fine until the in-laws left. Didn't do so well after that. I had myself a little pity party, including crying in bed. I even skipped church on Sunday. Being that it was Father's Day and all, and just getting sucky news, I was not up for church. Plus, my eyes were all puffy from the crying the night before. Fortunately, we already celebrated FD on Saturday with Babe's dad, so we were able to avoid the festivities.
I'm actually doing better now. I am happy for my BIL and SIL. My niece will be almost 4 when her little sister/brother comes along. She'll make a great big sister. Even though at my last post about this, I mentioned my BIL and SIL would probably have a boy and beat us to passing on the family name, I'm actually hoping they have a boy. I think it would be perfect for them to have a little girl and a little boy. Of course they could have more kids if they wanted, but if not, one of each is perfect, in my opinion.
I really am happy for them. I can say that now without feeling like a fraud. I'm over the initial shock. It's really is hard to hear pregnancy news, but I am always so happy for others when they do have babies! Now I can look forward to seeing them over the 4th of July weekend when we go see them in Michigan. I'm sure they are planning to announce they news then, unless my mother-in-law breaks the news to them that she had inadvertently let the cat out of the bag!
In other news, I heard from my recruiter today. It looks like the hiring manager for the position I had the phone interview for is currently out of the country, so it may be a while before I hear anything about an in-person interview. The other position that I applied for has just been filled. I'm trying to be realistic and not get my hopes up too high for this position. I know it was very hard to get into this company, so I'll just take it easy. More importantly to focus on getting knocked up this next IVF cycle!
