I know it's stupid to feel this way but,

I was so sad and anxious and jealous when my friend announced she's 4 mnths PG. The reason why I feel stupid for being jealous is she resently had 2 m/cs, so she's been through so much to get to this point, but nonetheless all my IF anxiety got all stirred up.  I'm feeling a little better now.  I go back to the RE tomorrow AM so hopefully he'll have some good news for me.

    I know exactly where you're coming from! My cousin has had a very rough road while trying to have a baby (multiple miscarriages and an infant loss). I wish nothing but the best for her and have prayed and prayed that she has a healthy baby, but I still get small pings of jealousy when she posts a pic of her and her baby. When she lost her baby I actually prayed that she would have a healthy baby even if that meant I didn't have anymore. So, I would never wish she didn't have a baby, I just wish I had another one too. It makes me feel silly and guilty, but I can't help it. (Wow, sorry to ramble!) 

    Good luck at the RE's!

  • Good luck at the doctor.  From experience, I'm sure you truly feel happy for her, but it doesn't make your pain any easier.  The way you feel is completely understandable.

  • I agree with others.  I have a friend who has had IF struggles too, and she is expecting #2 in just a few months.  I am happy for her, but sad it is not me (yet).

    I think that is one of things that I hate about IF most, not being able to just be happy for others without the pain and sadness of my own struggles.

    This.  I also have a friend with IF struggles that just had #2 last month, and as much as I am happy for her, it still makes me sad to a certain extent.

     

    It's totally normal to feel the way you do.  Good luck at the RE!
