I can't say I know exactly how you feel, but I do know that I still am bitter when I hear someone say how they got pregnant without even trying... or trying just one month, or they laugh about being "fertile Myrtle" etc. I feel yucky admitting that, and I know it sounds dumb coming from me, but when I hear someone is pregnant, although I am happy for them, my first gut reaction is to think "did they work hard enough for this baby???"
So when you are holding your child, whether it be through adoption or whatever, it will get a ton better, but I think infertility is something that changes your thinking permanently. You will feel happier for them, but you will still feel some "why them and not me?" stuff as well.

I believe it will get easier on your heart once you have adopted. I know that since we've started the international adoption process, my life and my way of thinking has completely changed.

It's not often, but there are times when I become jealous or envy friends who are pregnant.

It helps me to talk & meet with others that are going through the adoption process after infertility.

I wish you the best!
