I come from a very complicated and mishmashed family and currently i'm not the only one trying to conceive. I have a cousin (22yrs old) who's just found out she's pregnant, VERY pleased for her! However i also have an aunt (33yrs old) who is trying to get pregnant also, however this is through artificial insemination as she is in a same sex relationship and she is really struggling to conceive. They already have one child together, borne through AI 2 years ago by my aunt's partner. Now, this is where it gets complicated. My grandparents divorced before i was born and both went on to have more children after my mother was born. So although these are both my relatives, they are not technically related to each other (cousin is daughter of uncle from my grandad's family, aunt is daughter from my grandmother's family). Both are obviously related to my mother, and as a whole all of us are very close, regardless of their family link. The problem is my aunt has become very withdrawn from my cousin since she discovered she's pregnant and now i daren't tell my aunt (who i am very close to as we're the same age and were brought up around each other) that i'm trying to conceive incase she becomes the same with me. What would you do? My second problem, my life is never simple lol One of my close friends is currently trying to have a baby through surrogacy, so far she's up to 6 cycles with no luck. After the way my aunt reacted to my cousin being pregnant i now daren't tell my friend that we're trying for a baby either I don't really want not to tell either of them, because i think it'd be worse if i left it until we are actually pregnant, am i better off telling them now so they have time to come to terms with it? I'm sorry if this doesn't all make sense and sorry if i've given you all way too much info to be going on but i think it helps to have a clear picture Thank you all in advance!!
