Am I the only one who is finding it increasingly hard to be happy for pregnant people?

I can certainly relate...I don't like that I feel that way, but it's really hard not to.

I DO have a SIL who is pregnant, and we have a very bad relationship, but that's another story.

So far, I don't find that I'm jealous of preggo women.


I am very envious of my SIL who gave birth to a beautiful daughter (my first neice!) just over two weeks ago. That, and realizing that my bio clock is ticking (I'm 30), really encouraged me to plan and prepare so that we have the best chance of conceiving quickly as soon as we are ready to TTC.


I think the fact that SO MANY of my friends have had children over the past 5 years or so, and at the moment two are PG with fall babies, has desensitized me to being jealous.

I am the same way right now. It seems like everyone around me is pregnant. I don't know if it's just because I am at the age now, where everyone I know is, but Man! It seems like there is a lot of them.

I am super Happy for all of them, but then a part of me goes "why not me". Our TTC date is way off Sept 09 and I know why i am waiting and it's all GREAT reasons,b ut I still wonder why can't it be me.

You aren't alone.

Awesome that sounds great! We are getting married in March and I plan to go off BC right away. I thought about doing it sooner because I'll be almost 30 then and DH will be almost 40. Not sure though...this sounds funny but I'm afraid to only bc the BC makes my boobies bigger and I'm afraid I won't fit into the wedding dress properfly if I stop before that time lol.!

Yes. it seems everyone around me is getting pregnant sometimes. It's frustrating because I am SO ready to have a family but it's not the right time for us. I'm happy for them, I just have a hard time showing it. Same with those getting married. We were supposed this summer (which meant maybe next year TTC) but things happened. and still waiting...

I lost around 10 pounds before our wedding (seemed like most of those were from my boobs) and after I had my dress altered (I didn't think I would lose that much weight) so my dress was pretty big in the boob area for the wedding.
