  • All I want to say is...I LOVE this board and all of you ladies! You all are seriously the best support system I've had along this journey. I love how we can vent and share our frustrations and then find someone who feels the same way you do and then you don't feel like you are just some crazy, jealous person. I really feel for all of you when we share our times of being down, jealous, upset, etc.

    I know I haven't been truly TTC for long, but it's been almost a year since I went off birth control and I guess I thought it would have just sorta happened by now. Then the one chemical pregnancy happened and it was the most awful thing I've experienced (but certainly not as awful as a true miscarriage, which I can't imagine going through - those of you who have have an amazing strength and love).

    I hope and pray every day for us all to get those BFP we are chasing with our whole hearts.

  • Thanks again ladies :hugs2: I think that's the worst part about it. You hear of someone who has been trying for 1 minute and you think-- why do they get to get pg and I don't? Then you get jealous. Then, you hear of someone who has in a "worse" situation than you are, and you feel guilty for feeling like you've got it bad. Take me for example, I have 2 kids! I should be out of my mind happy (which I am).
    I just try to remind myself that infertility is an physical illness, not a punishment. The *other* people who can get pg whenever they want-- they're the "normal" ones. I'm the one with the problem, and I shouldn't feel jealous of normal people, although of course I do from time to time. As happy as I am for them, it still bugs me that it's so much harder for me.

    Anyway, I definitely would probably have never gotten pg had I not had the ladies here to help me, answer my questions, and keep me from going insane.
