Default I don't f***ing believe it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

About a month ago Neil's brother said that they couldn't cope with #3 and nearly called us to come and take her away, and 'jokes' about wanting to swap lives with us. This is the same couple where she is 'broody' for #4, but he doesn't want anymore children and so told us that 'it's not gonna happen'.

Well, he called us up to ask for 8 so he can play an online game
and casually dropped into the conversation that they are now expecting #4

This announcement was slipped in after we told him that we couldn't afford to loan him the money because we'd just spent 310 ($510) on an infertility test.

We despair, we really do. I don't know whether I want to cry
or slap them!

How VERY unsensitive of him, what the heck was he thinking?? I don't blame you at all for being upset I would be too and I am I don't think anyone should be treated like that, people really need to think before they speak and learn when it's the right time to bring up such news gently if it may upset the other person they are telling it to. Some people do take for granted the fact that they can have children so easily it seems that they are that type of person. I'm sorry your having to deal with this it really isn't fair.

I would slap them and then cry! I am so sorry. It is one thing that these people are obviously crappy ass parents,as evidenced by the fact that he is wanting to borrow money to plan an online game, but to also be so insensitive to you and his brother I find utterly unforgiveable. They need a good kick in the

across the way to you and Neil. You should not have to deal with absolutely insensitive crap like that. Some people just don't think, do they?

Unhappy Sorry

Tracey - I am so sorry you have to deal with people like that. They are family, and I'm sure you love them, but I cannot believe how insensitive he was.

You and Neil are an amazing couple and you have been through so much - I know you have the strength to get through this too.

Enjoy and love each other and I know that some day your dreams will come true.
