Ugh. I had two more pregnancy announcements come my way this week. I had been doing SO much better--hadn't been as depressed, had really been looking forward to January--but now I feel like I've been dragged back down. I know it's not fair but I feel like ever pregnancy means that my chances are lower. DH keeps telling me that doesn't make sense but you know I can't help it.

I just feel like everyone I know is leaving me behind. I'm getting lapped now, too. People who had babies after we started TTC are now expecting another one. How is that fair? I just feel so stuck, like we can't get on with our lives. I know we are starting IVF in 3 short months but I've waited so long already that today 3 months seems like a lifetime. Plus, there is no guarantee that the IVF will even work. Tomorrow I will probably feel differently but I just had to get that out there.

I'm just so sad and angry and feel like yelling "Wait! Wait! Let me catch up!" to all my friends and family.

I completely understand the feeling of being left behind, I wish that none of us had to go through this

I get it. Waiting is the hardest part. You've done your fair share, you shouldn't have to do any more!

I am so sorry. It is awful when it feels like everyone around you is getting pregnant. I am sure you will be caught up soon. IVF has a very good success rate (I am not a normal case). Hopefully the 3 months flies by and you will hold you lo soon!
