Yep. I am very envious of pregnant women. I have a pregnant friend and everytime I see her cute baby bump I just want one. We started TTC so I’m just trying to keep myself in check and be a positive thinker that it will (fingers crossed) happen at some point.

I’m totally jealous… and it is only getting worse! DH and I’ve been trying for about a year, and each month the pangs get worse. I’ve functionally had to ditch facebook since at my age it is solid pictures of people’s kids. It is pretty painful.

I’ve been really frustrated lately. A friend of mine just announced on facebook today, and all I could think was that I know they make less money than we do and they already have two kids… and they felt comfortable TTC, yet we can’t seem to feel financially stable enough to TTC yet.

I wish we could start trying right now!!! I LOVED being pregnant : ) We are going to start trying for #2 after saying “I do” in August. I can’t wait.

I made the stupid decision to push back our ttc date from next month to October/November this year. I want a baby nowwwwww! I got panicky thinking of all the bad things that could happen, without focusing on the good things that will happen, and I asked my husband if we could hold off. He said yes. Now everywhere I go someone’s JUST had a baby, or I see a cute little bump, or there’s a FB announcement. At least our honeymoon will be just the two of us, I guess?

I don’t even drink wine, but give me a glass!

@SoontobeSelwood:  I have two health conditions that will make it a pain the arse or maybe even not possible at all to conceive/carry a baby full term. I’ve been coping mentally with this since I found out at age 10. It used to upset me a lot if I couldn’t have my own, but Fiance and I talked about what we would do if it just didn’t happen for us. We decided we would see the world and maybe even live abroad. Basically explore the world without worrying about the finances of having a child or children. We decided it wouldn’t be the most horrible thing in the world if we couldn’t have children. There are so many unwanted children in the world and that’s another option for us. Reminding myself that being a mom doesn’t have to be biological is another way I cope. Best wishes girl.

I feel happiness, then envy, then guilt for feeling envious and we haven’t even started trying yet (we start trying next month, after the wedding!)

@allyfally:  I feel you. I keep waiting, hoping we can save more money or be financially ready. But honestly soon we may just start trying and stop worrying, because I really want a baby!

@SoontobeSelwood: Thanks for your post, and thanks to all the rest of you for your stories – it makes me feel so much better! 

In the last month or so, I’ve been “hit” with three pregnancy announcements and it really hurts. Not because I’m not happy for them, but because it feels so utterly sad and discouraging that everyone else gets pregnant but us (we’re on our 5th cycle of ttc). I’m definitely in the state right now where I think it will never happen, just kitties for us.

Last night my SIL sent a note to my husband and I saying that we should get together as she and her girlfriend have news. I feel like THE WHORST person ever, but I’m so dreading that it’s a pregnancy announcement. Really don’t want that to happen face to face, because I’m terrified that I won’t be able to hold it together. Sigh… I feel like a nutcase, but reading this thread has made me feel so much better already. Thank you!
