My husband and I have been together for 5 years. I have been in my step-daughters life since she was 2. I'm currently 8 months pregnant with twins.
My husband took my step-daughter to her Girl Scout meeting last night, and low and behold, her mother actually attended something she said she would! Well, when the meeting was over and my husband and step-daughter were driving back home, she suddenly burst into tears. When my husband asked her what was wrong she said, "I just want you to get a divorce and marry my mommy again." My husband calmly told her that their marriage didn't work the first time, so it would definitely not work again and that he loved me and was going to be with me for a really long time. He said she just started sobbing even harder saying that she didn't want me to be with him anymore.
I try not to take anything too personally, however, that was a shattering blow considering I have done a lot for that little girl INCLUDING making her own mother a bigger part of her life. I know that someday she'll know all that I've done for her and she'll appreciate me for them....but that was really hard to hear about.
Am I over-reacting because I'm pregnant? Or do I have a right to feel hurt by that?
