At 27 I married my husband 3 years ago and became a step mum to 5 children (1 20 yrs+ and 4 under 15 yrs). The following year my eldest step daughter announced she was pregnant. With myself and my husband unable to conceive together, this was a gut wrenching kick in the teeth for me and I hit an all time low that year following. Thinking of self harm, had counselling etc. I have just recently got over it and began focusing on our treatment, thinking possitive and making changes etc. 6 days before I start stimulation injections, she announces she is pregnant again. In most cases I would be over the moon but when she has a one night stand with an absolute waste of a space man, (who is the father to her first child but split after the baby was 4 months because he couldn't cope and turnt to breaking the law and taking illegal drugs) it breaks my heart and all I can think is why not me? Why is it so easy for some and is the most lengthy and painful experience for others. I am sooooooooooooo anoyed that she could not keep this to herself for a few more weeks to give me the chance of our treatment with as little stress as possibly. When all you want is to be a mum, to become a step nan first is so painful
