3 of 4 of my closest friends just announced their pregnancies. I have never been so happy and sad at the same time. They all had infertility the first time around and managed to get pg the first cycle this time around. We have been trying for 11 months with no luck. Part of me wants to avoid hanging out because it will be a lot of pregnancy talk with side glances at me. I don't want to be a Debby Downer in the group but I don't want to lose my friends either. Also my son hangs plays with their kids and I don't want to avoid socialization opportunities for him. What would you do? Would you go to playdates and just deal with it or would you avoid it for a while until you get a better handle on your emotions?
Re: pity party
Can you be open with them? If they went through IF the first time, surely they would know where you are coming from.
What a tough situation. If they are good friends, they will be sensitive to your feelings, and try to not make it worse.
You need to do what is best for you.
