OT -Making Assumptions

I try to be considerate, but I really thought she was mocking me, and I did not think.� As is usually the case, a single comment should not be devastating, but I am oversensitive because I feel huge,� who could miss this waddling sea cow.� Frankly, anyone who cannot see my distorted size at 10 feet has more troubles than I do.I post in parenting occasionally, read it more often.� I think I posted here about it when folks were talking about news for families before Thanksgiving.I'm just shy of 30 weeks, with twins, all WNL except the in the fifth month I got huge, I've looked like 7 months since then.� Over 2 months of more than 30 lbs, and 20 inches at the waist larger, and still 2 to go.Hubby has been offered a good position, just 1 1/2 years out of PT grad school, but it means moving early summer.� Good timing, this is a sublet and folks are coming back from the South Pacific.� But due in mid May, means house hunting (to buy) now.� And planning on my not going back to work, so when I leave in April, that is it.� Busy.� Cranky� if I have to drive or sit in one position long, and we have been looking in the Littleton NH� to St Johnsbury VT� area, which is a ways.I don't have many horror stories yet, except (I never posted the story)� over the weekend� after Thanksgiving, at Husband's family home in NJ.� We said nothing for 2 days, quite aware that one sister in law visiting from out of state has been TTC 4 years, finally did and lost it in a car accident last summer, so no one needed to bring it up over the holidays, �Fine with me.�� �MIL pulled me aside after her daughter IL and son flew to Cal.,� she had guessed.�The next day, sitting at the family table, the door flew open, hit the wall so hard it went into the plaster, and hubby's�� soon-to-wed� �brother's fiance is purple and screaming that��� I ruined her year to get married.� It is her year, 2 or 3 of the brothers and sisters and at least 3 first cousins living within blocks have married 3 years in a row.� This is her year, and those of us who went first and got married can't have babies until after August when she gets married.��So she says.�What a Nut.FI is one of 9 with additional 3 older half brothers, all within 15 years, 113 first cousins (not counting husbands and wives) that we counted when wedding planning,� and �all but 5 live within 1/2 hour.�
She expects her own no�other �weddings, no babies year?�
Screaming and pulling her hair and telling me I'd have to "move it back after August."� Right.���� After she stormed out, my MIL patted my arm and said,� �remember,�� the crazy is marrying into our family,� no crazy in our genes, so you don't have to worry.�
Then everyone goes back to eating,�� 20 something for Sunday supper.�
Inlaws 250 miles away, a nice safe distance.� Soon to be 300 miles.
