My sister-in-law is a bridesmaid in our month-away wedding and she just told me she is 5 weeks pregnant. I'm very excited for her and my brother and I can't wait to be an aunt. However, I found this out the night before my bachelorette party and bridal shower this past weekend. The day of, she spent the whole time sitting around, showing up late, not helping clean up or set-up, telling everyone she could she's pregnant and talking about her plans for the new baby. At my shower and party! I can't help feeling a little upset. She is very self-centered and princess-y and I've had trouble dealing with this in the past. I don't want to hurt my brother so whenever she has a total "look-at-me, cater-to-me" moment I smile and do my best to bite my tongue and walk away if need be. While her pregnancy is very exciting news, I can't help but feeling like she could've been a little more helpful and less self-centered, and perhaps she stole some of my thunder. I've got a chip on my shoulder and I'm having a hard time getting it off. Any suggestions on how to deal with this?
Thanks! This wedding is making me a little crazy!
