Just y'all. I'm fucking livid. I know I've sporadically commented about my sister-in-law on here in the last few months, and this past week has proven what we've all known: DON'T BE FAT, LAZY, AND PREGNANT!
God, it's not that hard, right?! She was huge before she got pregnant, so it's not like I had any high hopes. I just let it go for almost 4 months, before I began to notice these...clusters...like spider veins on her thighs. Those weren't there before and they're mid-thigh, front and center. The hell? I began to wonder if the whole "it's all going fine! no gestational diabetes! no issues, yay!" shit we were being told was, in fact, just shit.
Fast forward to this last month, where she's been claiming she only gained 10lbs this whole time. 1. if that's true...so??? You could've easily lost 30lbs and it wouldn't have made a huge dent in your excess, so gaining any wasn't necessary. 2. suuuure, hun. Sure. Because your belly bump still goes way out, and you were already huge, I'm sure it's "just" 10lbs.
We were expecting the baby just after Mother's Day, and last week we learned...ready?...the baby has gotten too big too fast, so they're moving the induction date to first few days of May. Shocked, right? I wasn't, nor was my mom. Bless her, "I kept saying to walk every day. Every day! She doesn't walk." "I bet her diet has been shit with <my brother, her husband> out of town a lot." "Oooh, yes, fast food, eating out every meal. I know, too. Every meal." "Jesus, no wonder that baby is huge. Didn't develop gestational diabetes, my ass."
My mom isn't too savvy on medical things, so she wasn't sure what I meant. I explained that some women just barely pass her GD screening, and then just go full hog. And that my sis-in-law has been gorging on fast food and sweets, it's totally believable that she's done damage to her and the baby since the screening. That I looked up "large for gestational age or LGA" babies and it's almost always GD. And that there are tons of possible complications associated with it.
Lo and behold, one day later she says that while the baby's date was moved up 2 weeks, if her blood pressure gets any higher (hi, fast food diet? yea...) they'll keep her. Well, she decided to kick the junk food for the last few days...kidding...she was hospitalized yesterday. They induced labor this morning. Got to where they needed nurses to roll this cow side to side. Think about it. Needing to be rolled on your side, how embarrassing for someone who has zero disabilities.
Now, now she's getting a c-section because she just couldn't progress in labor. Honestly, probably for the best so that poor child isn't hurt during the pushing process. I want to have sympathy, but this entire pregnancy of hers has turned me into a ranting babbling angry mess. She could have prevented this. All of this. I hope that scar is a reminder.
TL;DR : fatty gun fat. Got knocked up, went full heifer, lied about having no complications right up until her baby got too fat she had to get it cut out of her. MY FIRST NEPHEW, TOO. /rant
