Surprise! I'm just couple days shy of 2 months now. It's kind of hard to keep this kind of news from your Sparkfriends. Now that I've heard a strong heart beat and everything is going well, I figured what better time than now to spill the beans.
My husband and I are really excited. We still can't believe it.
My mom and step dad are horrible, horrible people though. When I was walking into my first ultrasound, I got this hateful text from my step dad threatening to take a car that my parents gave to me 7 years ago. They're very mentally ill people, so I try not to let their bad behavior get to me. Every major life event (the LSAT, my graduation, the bar, my wedding, and now my first ultrasound) they have ruined. Maybe it's the hormones, but this time I'm really hurt.
I see them a handful of times a year at family parties. I really don't think that's going to change, despite the fact that this will be their first grandchild (I'm an only child and my step dad's kids haven't spoken to them in years). I don't need them for anything, and I don't want to be around people who strictly make me feel terrible.
It's really sad. I wish I had parents who were loving and caring. Now would be a good time to celebrate with someone like that.
