I swear, I will never understand all the emotions I go thru with my infertility.

Today, I had a friend give birth to a beautiful baby girl today. I am thrilled for her. 100% thrilled. And its not like its her first or a hard achieved pregnancy. (Its her 3rd baby.) But I'm just happy for her.

But when I think of other pregnant people, I am 100% insanely jealous and bitter.

I can't figure out why. But I'm working on it.


  1. I find myself being happier for some verses others. I think it is a natural reaction. Although I do trend to be happier for woman who have really suffered before they were able to get pregnant.

  2. I think it all depends on the relationship you have with the mother (or father), how you were feeling when you heard they were pregnant, if you're having a good day or not, etc. I know I found it hard to hear about older women getting pregnant. It really rubbed salt into the wound - that I couldn't get pregnant and they could do it so much later. Even my sister. I was happy for her, but sad for me. Emotions aren't rational. They just are.
