Please excuse the rant!!! I'm extremely hormonal today. Gonna sound like a spoilt brat and I know it so please don't comment if ur gonna say I'm being petty! I'm not after sympathy either, just a rant! Had a call from my younger brother, his gf's waters have broken and they r at the hospital. she is 36+1 so due 17th march. I know this sounds so stupid but I'm so off. She has near enough stolen my due date (not bothered about the date - she can have it, but it's just the principle). My brother has never let me do anything on my own. Always picked on me and beat me up as a child, ruined near enough everything I have ever owned out of jealousy. Some of u may remember my rant about them announcing their pregnancy the day after me (wouldn't've minded but it took us 2 and a half years to conceive, they had only been together 5 months and they had a mc in April when they had been together 2 months). Since that day, I hoped we had different flavour babies so they wouldn't be compared to each other as much. Thankfully, we r having a boy and they are having a girl. That kinda made me feel slightly better about the whole situation (again, I know how stupid I am sounding right now). My brother commented on fb at the beginning of the week that he thought his baby would make an appearance this week, and lo and behold on Sunday afternoon her waters go. This has majorly me off. I've been extremely emotional today, had a hysterical crying session this morning for no apparent reason and this has not helped. So now I'm willing Pip to stay put for at least a few days so their birthdays aren't too close together. And if anyone ever mentions having a joint birthday party for them I'm gonna go mad!! I do not want my baby having to share a birthday with his impatient cousin! I'm sorry for the long post, pettiness and sheer spoiltness of this post but I'm genuinely hacked off!
