MsYankee:  I’m glad you’re feeling a little better today! And I think it’s really smart to clue the family in on the situation. DH and I went back and forth on that, but I just finally told him I really couldn’t ahndle the questions anymore. It’s SO hard when people are unintentionally rubbing in your face what you want so badly! We did the same thing – we just said we were working on it but it’s not been easy, and we’ll let them know when we have good news! It’s SUCH a weight off, and ends those sticky situations that make you sad!

I’m sorry you’re going through this.  It’s so hard when others are doing the things that you are dying (and trying) to do, and seem to be having no problems.  It sounds like it will be helpful to have talked to your family, at least… hopefully they can give you guys some breathing room.  Hugs!

I’m sorry, hang in there! I’ve had friends get pregnancy while I’m ttc. I’m so very excited for them and some of them got pregnancy easily and others haven’t. I wouldn’t wish TTC difficultly on anyone though so of course I’m happy for them. I wish it could happen for me, you, and everyone when they wanted it.

I agree. I wouldn’t wish the two week waits and the heartbreak each month on anyone. It sounds dramatic, but it really is very, very tough to be able to achieve and work for everything else, but something like having children, you can’t exactly control.

MsYankee:  Sending you hugs!! I know how frustrating it is! But I also feel guilty at the same time! I always just tell myself that my time will come and to not let it get to me. It also helps me to show my support with baby showers/baby sewing projects for their baby…although I know this may cause more pain to some ttc, but I have found it is the only thing that helps me. Oh and By The Way my sister has gotten pregnant THREE times while on birth control and each time I have had to work through my feelings and be genuinely happy for her and my new neice/nephew.  


Hang in there!!
