JO SAYS:

Pick Me Up! Special - - Unlucky Real Life -

It’s re­ally kind of you to con­sider your sis­ter-in­law’s feel­ings, be­cause fer­til­ity is such a painful is­sue for so many peo­ple. Here’s what I’d do: I’d speak to her and her part­ner pri­vately be­fore Christ­mas and tell them your news. Say you know it could be up­set­ting for her which is why you wanted to let her know away from the glare of the fam­ily Christ­mas meal. Give her time to come to terms with your happy news.

I think you’d be sur­prised; most women can de­light in the joy of an­other woman’s preg­nancy and you may give her hope that her turn will come.

The ul­ti­mate gift
