  • Jeanne I am so glad you posted this!!! I was beginning to think I was a
    for being jealous. I know this month has been tough for you but I hope at the end of the month your world changes and you find out you are carrying a JuneBug.

  • Excuse the ramble in advance...

    I don't know. I need drugs or something. The weirdest thing happened to me this time around. I was devastated, like for 5 days I think thinking that it was all over; I would never be a mom. Crying all the time-- it was almost like a death-- I know that doesn't make sense but like the void of the child I thought belonged in our family.
    Then, the next day (after the 5ish days) I woke up and suddently I felt better. I felt like those little things people say to make you feel better. I felt like "It's going to happen somehow. YOu just have to be patient and see how it's all going to come together." I know though, that for me it doesn't just "happen." Hence, the "wishful thinking" post. I have to chase after it, but I'm so not into all that fertility stuff right now. So I guess I'll just have to see how I feel when af gets here.
    Thanks ladies!

  • I think what you are feeling on here is completely normal. Sometimes it is hard for me to be on this board. I get jealous a lot too. Especially when you see someone joing and this is their first month of TTC and then they find out like a couple days later they are pregnant. It is HARD. I have been trying to get pregant for 57 months. I have never had a month where I have came close or seen a test with a BFP. So sometimes it is hard to write congrats to someone on here. However, I do try. I do not want my family and friends to be scared to tell me about their joyous news (not that any of you are like this.) I am strictly speaking for me.

    This board has helped to overcome this and be happy that one more person has made it out of this he** hole we call infertility. I try to look at every success story as one more person who made it out. One more person that can help us and research to see what works.
