Surrounded by pregnancies

So far I have two cousins who are pregnant and a coworker who is about to become a grandmother for the first time. What really hurt, though, was another coworker announcing today that she's pregnant with her fourth. All four of her kids have been unplanned--she got pregnant with her first young and ended up marrying the father when she was pregnant with their second. She didn't even have any clue she was pregnant--she went in for an exam and the doctor discovered it--so she doesn't even know how far along she might be. She smokes, she drinks caffeine by the boatload and she's not even all that happy about this pregnancy.
And here I am on month #4, drinking green tea, taking vitamins, limiting all other caffeine ... and nothing.
What's the worst is seeing all my other coworkers fawn over her and talk about her "baby bump." I know I'm just jealous, and that's not fair of me, but I can't help it.
