Sigh. — The Bump
TTC after 35


So, my progesterone supplements (or maybe the natural p4 levels from my med-enhanced number of follies this cycle) are really kicking in.  My boobs hurt and feel huge, and beginning today I'm feeling really moody.  And it's still relatively early so I don't even have the consolation of imagining these could be pg symptoms.

So naturally today's the day that when I log into Facebook in an idle moment at work I find out that friends of DH and I who have already conceived and had one child since we started TTC are now pg with another -- soon they'll have two under two.  Lapped twice!  We see these friends a lot, and I think they're great parents, so of course I'm happy for them.  Any other day I would have reacted fine.  But today I teared up (several times now) and feel sad and envious.  :-(  I feel awful for feeling this way.

Anyway, thanks for letting me vent -- hoping I can put this out of my mind so I can concentrate on work.  (Another thing the progesterone makes more difficult --boo.)

Re: Sigh.

  • I know how you are feeling with PG friends - I was optimistic last cycle and then a dear friend tells be she is PG with #2 the day after AF arrived.  Great timing there.  And then we blew it this cycle - I got really sick over Thanksgiving and we were hosting company - all just before I Oed. 

     Wishing you good luck!

  • So sorry you are feeling down. It really stinks wanting to be happy for a friend but resenting it at the same time. It's ok to feel that way though, totally understandable!

  • Sorry your feeling stinks. My PG friend called me Sun to talk and started to discuss her nursery for the baby. She did DE IVF so I knew she had a hard time getting PG but it still hurts. I sobbed all I'm due for AF.

    Hang in there:) (HUGS)

  • Ugh. Pregnancy announcement are the worst. Especially when you get lapped. Sorry you're having a rough time.

    I think the progesterone is making me break out. I have three big zits on my chin, and I almost never get acne. Grrrrr. Feeling tired and cranky, too. It doesn't help that I started a new job this week.
