DH and starting casually trying to get pregnant a year ago yesterday (read: I hadn’t yet even heard of an OPK, or how to chart temps and other fertility signs). I was handling it okay enough, but this afternoon I found out that my Fertile Myrtle neighbor is pregnant with her fifth baby (her oldest is 6), and is due the same day we were due, before we miscarried.
I’m feeling very frustrated and bitter. I don’t blame her for her ease of getting (and staying) pregnant, but my uterus feels achingly empty tonight.
Time to hit the wine, I think, or maybe pull out the big guns and go for gin.

@Mrs Sarah McK: I’m so sorry. I know that is hard to deal with. We have not had to go through the heartache of a miscarriage, but this is the first month we began TTC and it was not successful, which I discovered today. Today I had to go to Target and get some things and everyone there (EVERYONE) was pregnant, had a baby, had a toddler, had a kid, etc. It was torture. Enjoy the wine, enjoy the gin. Remember, tomorrow is another day. ((HUGS))!

First of all BIG (((HUGS))) to you! I had a MC earlier this year & I know its tough. 🙁 I also had ten million friends pregnant & around the same weeks as me. So it was hard seeing everyone pregnant & seeing their happy posts on facebook. But I was still really happy for them! I just felt sad for myself. Its hard & it takes time. Just relax tonight & enjoy your wine!
