Another pregnancy announced 😢

I know so many of you ladies will fully related to how I am feeling this evening. Another announcement of a baby due in our family, this little one will arrive around the same time ours would have if I had not misscarried about a month ago (why is life so cruel sometimes?) I want to be pleased and excited but I just feel jealous and then sad and ashamed that I feel that way😢

I know how you feel. My best friend’s baby is due two weeks (in April) before my last baby would have been due. We’ve had two missed miscarriages this year. And my OH has good friends that are also due in April. Then yesterday another set of his friends tells him they’re starting ivf. As far as I’m aware they have no issues with fertility and haven’t even started trying yet but are going private for ivf because of her age. I just KNOW they’ll be pregnant before us 😞 It’s such a horrible thing isn’t it? When others seem to get the one thing you want more than anything without as much struggle as you xx

Tugsgirl, life is just so unfair. The same thing happened last time I miscarriaged, 3 couples including my OH brother & wife all had their babies due around what should have been our babies due date, it is heart breaking. What I find frustrating with this couple is they ‘decided’ to have another baby and have never had the struggles that us ladies on here have. What privileged position to ‘decide’ and it happens, just like that! I guess that is how it happens for most people but not us😢 xx

Oh, dear, I'm so sorry. I experienced miscarriage during second ivf shot with donor egg. It as a heartbreak! Furthermore, it really seemed like every day someone else was saying they were pregnant. And the worst ones were those who feel the need to tell the world it was a 'mistake'!! Feeling jealous is normal and there is nothing we could do about it. I hope time will heal the wounds so that you could continue moving further. Huge hugs and lots of support x
