So I’ve just found out that I’m going to be a grandmother for the first time, I knew this was coming as they’ve been trying a while. Me and my daughter are very close but I’ve been told that I won’t be wanted at any scans or appointments, that no one including me is being told any names they decide on until after the birth and that my help or advice isn’t required unless asked.
I get it I do, and this isn’t about me it’s about them becoming parents. So I’m trying to stay out of it as much as possible,but I’m having to really adjust my expectations and what I thought my daughter being pregnant would be like.
I feel sad about it all to be honest, not that I have intentions of voicing any of this, so I’m just trying to work though my feelings about this.
