Feeling down

  • Hi...
    I'm sure most of you probably feel the same way that I do...sometimes you're okay and hopeful, and other times the disappointment and frustration in trying get the best of you. Right now I'm having a tough time. I just found out ANOTHER one of my friends is pregnant, and I feel incredibly selfish, but I feel like someone has punched me in the stomach and I'm so sad. I am very happy for them and have no idea how long it took them, etc, but I can't help but feel selfish and sad. I tried to talk to DH about it and he just tells me not to stress...how is that possible?????? He says that since this is on thing out of our control, I shouldn't worry so much. This week was our fertile week so at this point, I don't know if things "worked", but I am dreading now having another disappointing month. I know the secret is to "not stress and let it happen", but I'm having a very difficult time doing this. I'm so upset...just need some support from people who know what I'm feeling/going through.

  • Thank you! I'm just having a bad night with it. I feel badly complaining since it has only been a few months, but I guess you're right...any period of time is difficult when you are not getting the result you want.

  • I've been there too-we went through alot to find out what was wrong (and when we did find out-it took off some of the stress of why it wasn't happening, sounds weird, i know) and i've been through every single person it seems getting pg before you. i hate the "relax" line. you want it to be you and that's ok! we're here for you to vent on! good luck and don't get too hard on yourself. the worst month for feeling down for me ended up being my month. i do IUI's and i remember crying after the appointment and for 2 weeks after that anticipating another disappointment and crying when I THOUGHT I was starting my period....so we've been there...my pg ended up ectopic, but i am so sure we'll have luck again! chin up!
