Why can't I

  • Yeah, I haven't been trying very long either but I feel the same way! When baby fever hits, it really hits. It doesn't help either if you've been wanting a baby since forever--even if you've only been really trying for a little while.

    I have a friend that's due in October--if she makes it that long, she's already at 1cm. I'm excited for her but jealous as heck too!

  • I posted this on another similar post, but I wanted to say that the only thing that I found to keep me sane all these years, is to think that perhaps that woman might have had to go through the same struggle that Neil and I have been experiencing.

    I still look and feel sad it's not me, but then I think to myself "that might have been her 4th IVF cycle", or "that might be baby #6 for her, she might have had recurrent miscarriages". It really does help, because you never know, she just might have been through hell to get that bump.

  • Funny that you say that as yesterday I was at a baby shower for a friend and of course it was jealous, and hard to buy stuff for YET ANOTHER baby that's not mine, but it took her 7 months of IUI's to get preggers! And, I am VERY happy for her- even though of course I wish it was me- and we haven't even been trying that long!

  • Thanks everyone! I know I haven't been trying that long, but it just seems like it's taking forever! I know it will happen sometime and I will just have to be patient!

  • I am in the same boat as you! My husband and I haven't been trying for very long, but seems like forever. I was just a baby shower for my friend (who should not be pregnant) and it was hard to pretend to be happy. It should have been called "bring a baby shower" because I swear every person who walked in the door had a baby with them! Aaaah! I hope everything works out for you soon. Maybe we'll "graduate" together! :-)
