I’m currently 16 weeks pregnant and so grateful to be after 5 cycles of IVF and 2 mmc. However my step sister announced a while ago she’s also pregnant by accident and is 3 weeks ahead of me.
I’m struggling with my anxiety and the fear of losing another baby, where she’s breezing through her pregnancy buying anything she can and constantly posting photos. I unfollowed her on Facebook and insta so I wasn’t constantly bombarded but today it’s started on snap chat with videos of her baby’s heart beat.
It’s really upset me and every time I see a photo I feel like it sets my anxiety back again. I understand she’s happy and has no reason to be fearful I guess but I feel like people are constantly comparing us and for me it’s reminders of how my pregnancy could of been if we hadn’t been on such a tough journey.
I honestly thought once I was pregnant, other pregnant people wouldn’t bother me but maybe the pain of infertility and loss never leaves us. I don’t know if I’m just being extra hormonal but wondered what you would do in the same position?
