Your NOT Crazy for feeling those emotions. Here I am with 7 children and would STILL take one more! I don't think it matters how many babies a woman has. I think if a woman loves children,being a mom, enjoys PG and all that goes long with most of it, she is just gonna wish for more babies. I have a friend who has 13 children and would gladly welcome another baby. Glad you could come to the board and vent your frustrations. We all sure understand your feelings well here. {hug}

Hi Melanie. It does feel bad wanting to have another child and not being able to get PG. I know exactly what you mean. BUT, you can't feel guilty about your feelings -- they are what they are -- guilt will just make everything worse. Youa re not crazy or selfish for wanting another; you just want another baby. I do too. Sometimes I think I will stop at nothing to have number 2, but in reality, that's not the case because I know how blessed I am to have one -- and the sun rises and sets on him too. I am sad, but I am also starting to accept that I might only have one -- doesn't mean I'm not bitter, angry, jealous, pissed off and all that. But I am not going to feel guilty and neither should you. GL to you!

I feel the same way today, Melanie. I had such high hopes going into this thing, and then I get a lab result today of FSH 20.3! I can't help but feel hopeless now and kicking myself for waiting too long. I feel healthy, my cycles are regular, I guess I figured my eggs were healthy too. I know that's not logical, but there it is. I just want to scream and cry and stomp my feet and yell "it's not fair!!!!!!"

ditto what all the other ladies said!!! don't feel guilty, we totally understand. i have a friend who has four children, she wants another and she is very very frightened it's too late for her. what i realized in talking with her about it, is that it doesn't matter if it's child #1 or #18, if it's what your heart wants, it's very very painful not to be able to achieve it. and the worst part for me is, that i have no control over it.

hang in there and keep the faith!!! that's what i'm doing! that's what i will do till menopause makes me do otherwise. HUGS
