Ok, so I've been lurking here for a bit... I announced in march that DH and I were starting to ttc. Well, since then we've had no luck. I just wanted to vent a little cuz I'm getting a little frustrated right now...

I went to walmart and all the people I seen around me were just a bunch of pregnant women. It didn't matter where I went or where I looked I couldn't get away from them and the longer we shopped the more I was getting frustrated. Not to mention the fact that I ran into my best friend who by the way is about 16wks pg and I was almost starting to get jealous of her because she wasn't even trying to get pg, it just happened. BAM, just like that, no effort at all, I mean what's so special about her.

Hi! I completely understand and agree! And it's not even just the pregnant women, everywhere I go now I see tiny babies! If it's not the pg women following me around, it's the new mommies with their little ones!! I don't know how to fight the jealousy, I just keep telling myself that it will happen when the time is right! Good luck to you :)

I completely understand where you are coming from. My other half and I have been trying now for a while in fact this is our 12th cycle. Everywhere we go there are either pregnant people or very new babies. How I want a happy baby so badly. I do know what everyone tells me, "It will happen when it is supposed to and stop trying so hard" but they do not understand the pain. My older sister got pregnant 3 times and for each was pregnant with in the 1st month and my other sister got pregnant with out even trying. They always tell me it is because they I am trying too hard and I need to just let it happen. I have many friends that have gotten pregnant and have not wanted to. Currently there are 5 people where I work that are pregnant and 8 with babies under 6 months. Everyone says "It is in the water there and I just need to drink it!" Sometimes I just want to tell them to shut up and not talk to me (in not that nice of terms). I do feel your pain and wish you all the luck in the world.

I totally know what you mean... I'm so sorry you're having a tough time... I was having a hard afternoon today and I went to the store and, no joke, the new billboard on the freeway is for the new womens/childrens floor at the local hospital. It's a picture of a pretty pregnant woman... like I don't have it shoved in my face every day right?! now it's on a illuminated billboard right down the street!? sheesh. I just know you'll get your sticky little bean soon, hang in there!
