Me and my husband found out that we are expecting our first a few weeks ago. We kept it hush hush until we went to the doctor to confirm. After the doctor gave us a green light, we decided to start sharing the good news. My parents were overjoyed. Then I told my sister in law and she was super excited, she was begging me to let her dress up our baby. Sure, more money I'm gonna save on clothes. Also we went ahead and told my father in law and his new wife.
My father in law remarried last year to his best friends wife. Basically here is the short story: My FIL and MIL were best friends with Bob and Jane (not their real names). Bob wanted to have kids and Jane didn't, so Bob met some woman named Kate and she said she will have his kid if he wants to. Jan left Bob. Bob got Kate pregnant, and then told her he wants to go back to Jane and to get rid of the baby. Kate refused and Jane told him to go be with Kate. Kate gave birth to a girl and my FIL and MIL were invited to celebrate every month of the baby's birth, 1 month old, 2 month old, 3 month old, etc. When the girl was 3 years old Bob got into a horrible car accident and died. Six month after his death Kate started calling her friend husband to hang out. The friend cursed her and told her to leave her husband along. In the mean time FIL and MIL were getting a divorce. Kate started calling FIL and offered to be his lawyer. Soon after they started living together. Before the divorce was finalized and my MIL knew what was happening, Kate had FIL living with her full time.
Fast forward 3 years, she wants to get married and FIL is not in a hurry so she gets pregnant with him and convinces him to marry her. They get married and 4 month later she gives birth to another girl. Few month later my husbands asks me to marry him (we been together longer then they have been) and we get married 9 month afterwards. She kept complaining how FIL is helping out pay for his son's wedding. She complained to her friends that FIL is paying for everything in our wedding, where as in fact, my family paid for half and me and my husband paid half of the other half. And FIL is crazy rich and my parents nor me or my husband are not. The building where Kate lives right now was 1/3 my husbands (he grew up there and during divorce MIL wrote her half of the house that she bought with FIL on my husband and his sister) and 1/3 was sister's and 1/3 FIL. Kate changed the documents without anyone knowing and put the house on her name, and two of her daughters.
Ok whatever, let her have it I don't care, we can buy our own house but this is what happened. So we go to FIL to tell him our news and he is super happy, excited and basically overjoyed that he is going to have his first grandchild, and Kate is all angry looking and pissed. She tightened her lips so hard it looked like she didn't have any lips at all and she goes: "What happened, I thought you gonna wait?" "Are you sure you can do this? What are you going to do, you never had a baby?" "You sure you want to keep it?" "Where you going to get the money for it?" "Did you think this through?" Me and husband got so upset we left after being there for 5 minutes no more. First of all me and husband wanted this more then anything. Second of all me and husband both have well paid full time jobs thank you very much. Third of all if I didn't want to keep it, or weren't sure about it, why in the world would I be telling people how happy I am and excited??? Is she that scared that we will ask for "her" (she doesn't really work or do anything its all my FIL) money?! Gosh, she can keep all "her" riches for all we care. My husband is too proud to ask his dad for money anyways and would never no matter what. I told my sister in law what happened and she was extremely upset and had a talk with Kate. Kate said she was going to apologize but since I got upset about it she won't anymore. What trash. She stole a husband once, she stole a husband twice, her husband's best friend! Before I met my husband my boyfriend of a year died of a car crash and I was broken inside but I did not run after his best friend, I couldn't even think of dating another guy, and she was planning another rich man to land, and she has the audacity to judge, criticize and question me?
What do you think? What would you do in my situation?
