My DP told his sister about out BFP on Wednesday.
We decided to let her know first as we were aware (through another family member, not directly from her) that she was having fertility problems and wanted to her to know first so she had time to deal with any emotions she may have. I understand that it can be tough when people around are having success when it is breaking your heart that things are not working for you.
She said she wasn't sure if she should congratulate us or not....DP said that we were very happy and he would hope she would congratulate us. She said, well congratulations then, burst into tears and then said, well ill let you go then and hung up on him.
He is very hurt, upset and concerned about how she is doing. He has tried a couple of times to call her again to ask how she is but is not getting an answer. His mother has already given him grief and made the process tougher for us, so much that he doesnt even feel like telling her, and now this. While I appreciate she might be hurting, she can still surely find it in her heart to be happy for her brother and myself.
He is so excited about this pregnancy and wanted so much to share the news with his family, but sadly it is just not happening for him........I am hurt for him and can only imagine how he is feeling.
I sent an email to his sister asking her to call him as he is upset and we are both concerned about how she is, DP hasn't told anyone else and I feel like he is very down hearted about it all. Hoping I have done the right thing with the email, I am very concerned about how she is going. However, we are grown ups surely and can talk and deal with emotions.
