ah i am sorry 1april....but i am sure your little girl will be surrounded by plenty of other people who love her that day and who will be with her at all the important milestones... :action32 I never seen my godmother, never got birthday, christmas presents or cards from her, i dont feel i missed out because i had so many other people who loved me and were there for me My Hubbie wants to pick his brother for godfather i dont!!..because i know something similiar will happen, since we told him i was pregant not once has he text, rung, to see how i was feeling or how i am..

Thanks nelswife .... i had the same problem with DH i didn't want his brother as Godfather but in the end i gave in ..... himself and his wife have always looked down their noses at myself and DH they have a little boy 4 months older than DD they were raging that i was pregnant and that she didn't get all the attension .... the last time we meet at their sons first birthday she kept askign me was i going to have another baby and that she never had treatment ( we had ) to have her son she is 42 and i'm 36 .... i have no idea what her problem is i'm not into competion if she had a little goat i would say lovely ........

Some people dont know when to keep their mouths shut and be respectful...to me she comes across as being Jealous of you and your family.... I cant believe that she asked you that...tell her respectfully if she asks you again that you haven't decided that your quite content with your little family of three.. My friend was going through IUI for years and didn't tell a lot of people and people just kept asking her when she was going to have a baby...thankfully it worked and she is expecting twins!!..I just cant understand people intruding and asking personal questions
