pregnancy announcements are the worst and I’m sorry your night was ruined too. You are lucky your dad is so understanding and can lean on your parents for support. Mine are less than helpful so I don’t tell them anything anymore. I also deactivated social media and it’s really helped, but you can’t avoid everyone pregnant unfortunately and it sucks when it blindsides you.
I’m feeling a little better today but I think I really am getting close to stopping treatment. I think I have some iuis in me but I don’t think I can do more ivf. I would rather focus on changing other aspects of my life so I can be happy without kids if I don’t get pregnant in the near future.

thank you i’m glad i’m not the only one who can’t handle happy pregnancy news. Thank god I don’t have social media I feel like my mental health would be much worse if I did. I don’t blame you for unfollowing certain people, I would too.
yes this was very unexpected. They were supposed to get married in the beginnng of 2020 before Covid but “postponed due to issues in the relationship” and now they’re expecting a baby. Totally blindsided us and of course it was “an accident”
my dad is very understanding although I don’t share a lot with them they just know i’m doing ivf, my mom is a total whacko so I never talk to her about it (she always says the wrong thing) and I could understand why you don’t talk to yours about it since my mom is the same way. I completely understand your decision to not put yourself through IVF again. Although I told myself I would never quit I don’t think that is true. It’s a huge emotional undertaking and there is only so much one person can handle. You will know when you’ve reached your breaking point and that’s okay it it’s now, but I have also been (sort of) where you been with the prospect of having to start all over again and while at first I was against it I did change my mind and forged on, for better or for worse you do what you can handle and nothing more. Take some time to think it through but whatever decision you make the bees will support you 100%.

whatever you end up deciding, I think it’s good to look at what else in your life is making you happy or unhappy and focus on what needs to be changed. With infertility it’s so easy sometimes to lose track of what else is going on and to push things off or not fix things that should be fixed, so I’ve been trying to do the same. We are all here for you no matter what you decide ❤️
UGH!! That is the absolute worst, I would have been so upset too. Just unfair!!
