Kick in the gut
Fri, 11-19-2010 - 6:48pm

Just found out my SIL and her husband are expecting their 2nd baby. Not that I begrudge them. They deserve to be happy. I don't have anything against them...just that this is now their 2nd pregnancy since we have started TTC. So, they've had one baby and now are pregnant with their 2nd and we've only gotten pg and lost a baby in that time. Just got my jealousy going on here.

This is one of the hardest parts of this whole process for me. In five years I have still not figured out how to deal with other people's pg news without being totally overwhelmed with sadness, jealously and hatred of myself for feeling that way. It normally tears my world apart for a few days and I eventually start to feel better about it but those first few days is rough. It's funny because I don't cry over BFN's; or when AF comes; or even over my 2nd loss but I cry every single time someone ELSE announces they are pregnant and here lately it has been no less than once a week.

Sorry I think that news is the hardest when its so close to home especially when its taking so long for you.

I think you're entitled to jealousy.

Hope your day comes fast & you can be pregnant together.
