Just had an emotional weekend and need to vent. My DH and I decided to tell his sister and our very close friend about our infertility. Recently, we told my family and I swear it does not get any easier telling this news!
I felt like an idiot telling his sister last night, I just sat there bawling and trying to get the words out. She is a very hard person to read and I don't know what she was thinking. Today I was wondering if perhaps we shouldn't of said anything, but my DH thinks it's for the best b/c now we don't have to hide anything or make up lies when we can't make certain plans b/c of doc. appt.'s, etc. She just sat there and said, "Wow." She hugged me real fast and then turned around and went into another room. Maybe she just needs time to digest this info. Maybe it hit her hard thinking that her only sibling will possibly not have any children. Whatever she was thinking, I could not get a feel for.
Now that we told her, we are going to tell his parents which I am dreading! :-[ I want him to be the one to say it (and I wish I didn't even have to be there) and I will probably start bawling again.
I'm trying to figure out why I can talk to my friends at work so easily and not get this emotional, but when telling family members or our best friends, I get so upset. Does this happen to anyone else? :-\
Feeling like an emotional trainwreck.
