Fight With Sister Over Pregnancy

"My Sister Is Not Accepting My Pregnancy"

My problem is that I am not sure how to handle my half sister. We stopped talking because she doesn't accept my pregnancy. At first when I told her I was pregnant, she asked me why I hadn't told her sooner and made some jokes about going to watch the football with my boyfriend and her husband while I stayed at home with baby, she also told me that she would support whatever decision I made with the pregnancy and that she would be there for me.

A few weeks later she changed her mind, started to ignore me and pretended not to receive my messages on Facebook. Eventually I asked her why she was ignoring me and if it was to do with her having trouble accepting my pregnancy. To this she replied that she is offended by it and is too embarrassed to even tell her husband. I told her that I found what she said to be harsh, and she just told me "whatever, do what you want, you don't listen to what anyone ever tells you anyway" and then deleted me off her friends list. The only communication we had was on Facebook because about two weeks before I told her I was pregnant, I moved to another country to live with my boyfriend.

I'm hurt by the way she has chosen to react to this situation, because my boyfriend and I are very excited about our baby. It has been roughly two months since she has last spoken to me. A friend of ours asked her how she feels about getting a new niece or nephew, and she told them that she isn't fussed. This was only a week ago. I'm half way through the pregnancy now, and I don't think she will talk to me until the baby is born. How will I be able to forgive her after what she has done? I am 21, but she is acting as though I am 15 years old and as if I have shot someone!
