I wish I could have a baby soon but DH refuses to try for months and months yet so… yeah I get pretty jealous, and A LOT of our close circle are getting pregnant right now, including DH’s younger brother’s girlfriend of like 2 months.

I know about 5 people right now that are either pregnant or just had a baby, and my baby fever is so bad I seriously cannot stand it. A friend just told me that her 20 year old sister (who does not work, has never worked, and relies on family) is pregnant with her second kid. I was so mad that here I am trying to be responsible and wait until we’re really set, and here she is just spouting them out without a care.

I’m on cycle 6 – heading into cycle 7. So yeah…definitely jealous. I actually told a pregnant lady who was blissfully eating granola cereal while rubbing her belly on the tv last night to, “screw off.” Not one of my finer moments. 😉

I’m on cycle 15, so I feel you on the jealously. It used ti be worse, but now it’s mostly just sadness, and only a little jealousy

All of my close friends have babies and it is killing me.  Each time I see a random pregnancy announcement on Facebook it is like a knife to my heart.  The worst part is friends, family and co-workers asking “When are you going to start a family?” I want to say “Well I have not had a period for 5 months so baby making is almost impossible at this point”.  I bet that would shut them up!

I was for a few months but now it’s settled down and almost gone completely away. 

My SIL is currently in labor as I type eeekkkk! Depending on how quickly or slowly labor progresses I should be an auntie either today or tomorrow … so excited! I can’t wait to see my niece and hold her and give her a hundred kisses!

4 of my friends are also pregnant and due between the months of March to June. I get splurts of baby fever here and there. DH and I are going to start officially TTC next cycle. Very excited yet nervous.

So jealous – we’ve been trying for 8 months…just wish it would happen already.  It takes extreme effort for me not to be bitter around pregnant women.

@SoontobeSelwood:  definitely. We’ve been struggling to get pregnant for almost a year now and even from the very begining I would get major envy anytime I saw a pregnant woman or famillies with small children. A ton of my “friends” on facebook are pregnant or have just had a baby and I get rage-y scrolling through my news feed. I have admitedly had some terrible thoughts as well, you know the “they aren’t even fit to be parents”, “they weren’t even trying, they don’t have their life together AT ALL”, and my favorite “Why can’t I have ONE and they get to have TWO?!” (I know quite a few people who got pregnant with twins REALLY quickly…Undecided).  Then I feel bad because I don’t know their lives intimately, and the ones who’s lives are a mess, I hope having a baby helps them turn it around… It’s easy to judge when you are on the other side of the fence. But wanting something so bad and not being able to have one is a VERY emotional process.

I hope when the time comes you ARE able to have one easily.

@allyfally:  

@Swizzle:  I have TEN that I know off the top of my head that are pregnant… that’s not counting the ones who have already had their babies (at least 3 have been born already this THIS year, and I didn’t even count the ones who had a baby in the last year!)

I know about ten pregnant ladies right now so between Facebook, friends, work and DH’s work, all I hear about is pregnancy/babies all day long. I have crazy baby fever but DH doesn’t want to try for almost a year (we’re saving for a house). He gets so excited/impatient, I think he’ll be ready sooner than that but I don’t see us trying until October/November regardless. Sigh.

@SoontobeSelwood:  yea, when I hear that someone is pregnant or just had a baby, I seriously get a pain in my womb. I want that experience but DH and I are not ready to try yet
