Unhappy I need a hug...

... just having a low moment. I'm feeling like my heart is breaking. I have 2 colleagues that are pregnant, and I'm trying my hardest to rise above it all and pretend that everything is ok, but the truth is that I'm breaking my heart.

So today is all too much and my heart is breaking. One of my colleagues is about 6 months pregnant and the other is about 6 and a half months.

I constantly seem to walk in on conversations about maternity clothes, stretch marks, PG grumbles, scans, boobs and they both bring in baby clothes/items that they have bought to show to everyone. I'm not saying that's wrong, but I don't know how to cope with it anymore, I've held in as much as I can.

It also bothers me that they have a wonderful experience going on inside of them, they are being blessed beyond my wildest dreams, yet they act like they are ill. For example, one of the ladies is now not driving! Not driving? At 6.5 months, with a singleton??? My SIL was PG with twins and had a 3 year old, but drove right up until she couldn't fit behind the steering wheel (about a week before she gave birth).

I need help from you ladies. I really do. I need a hug. Badly.

...lurking...I hope that you are able to get through this. I cant imagine how difficult it is for you to hear people complain about the miracle that is going on inside them instead of giving thanks for it.
