I admit it, I’m stressed out. Work is a lot, we’re still struggling with TTC, my garden and lawn require a lot of maintenance and I keep getting bombarded with pregnancies all over the place (so it seems). It’s strange how much I loathe seeing someone I know in real life announce pregnancy, post pictures of their bump on FB or just talk about their kids. I ache for a baby and pray daily that it happens. I know I’m supposed to be a mom and I really want to be. It doesn’t bother me to see it happening here because I know we’re all in the same boat, so don’t feel like I’m hating on you all!
It’s just hard right now.

@debinoxford: I do want to say I’m sorry you’re having a difficult time right now. I too am going through stress and anxiety but for other reasons, and it is so hard to feel this way during the holidays. I hope you feel better soon 🙂

@debinoxford: Ah, I’m sorry you’re feeling like this. It is shit!!! And it’s good to come on here and vent/rant or whatever helps!! I don’t know what I’d do without WB even though I’ve a couple of amazing friends in real life who let me vent. I will say, like me, try to find someone to vent to IRl, it’s so much less lonely that way. I don’t know where I’d be without Darling Husband. Plus, we’re finally on the same page re TTC (ie both as frustrated as each other!!!). If all that fails there’s always WB!!!

Thanks, it’s nice to be uplifted. Darling Husband does a pretty good job of it, but I feel like sometimes I need someone else too. All of our other friends are out of town at the moment for the holidays. I usually just confide in Darling Husband, but I know when I get down I get him down too. We’re both under a lot of stress and he knows how much I want to be a mom. It’s just like I’m beating a dead horse over the head if I were to bring it up as much as it bothers me. Feeling a bit better now. Thanks.

((Hugs)) I think the holidays bring out these feelings in all of us about whatever it is we’re struggling with. Best wishes in the New Year. 🙂

@debinoxford: *hugs* I know exactly what you mean! This is cycle 6 for us, and i honestly am feeling pretty pessimistic about this round. 🙁 My sister asked me why I’m not pregnant yet. I just said, “well, it’s not so easy for the some people. It’s not for lack of trying.” *sigh* She means well and wants to be an aunt, but it’s hard.
And I completely understand not wanting to bring Darling Husband down when you are sad/frustrated about it. So glad I have this community to talk to.

@CocoLoco523: It makes a big difference, having this community. I don’t honestly know how most of us would get through this otherwise.
Hoping for BFPs for us all really soon.
