Ok I was going to name change but I wont because I don't want people to think i'm a troll sad

I will try to keep this as short as possible and I do appreciate there are people going through worse situations blush

I have been TTC for over 3 years (i do have 2 ds that i thank the lord for daily) and after several (too many) m/c sad and an ectopic last year that almost killed me sad have had no luck in the BFP sad

To date I have had 1 friend who 'accidentally' fell pg when on the pill "maybe i missed the odd one"!!!, My Sis in law who didn't want children until she was 30+ (she is 21 btw!!) and a friend who took the MAP 8 days later hmm ffs!!!

This is bad enough right? Oh no it seems that someone hates me enough to make my older sis (who incidentally gave her dd up for adoption 9 yrs ago sad) come here and ask if i had an PG tests here (she's knows I would) and then have to sit here while she did 3 and watch them all come up positive sadsad

DH witnesses all this and then asks (when Dsis had gone obv) why I had got upset and in all honesty should be grateful I have 2 already!

Know, I am not under any illusion that I am unlucky because I have been blessed with 2 wonderful boys whom I adore. It's just that it hurts so much to have to congratulate people who weren't 'trying' I am in all honesty getting mightily fucked off sadsadsad

Please feel free to either ignore or hug or kick me up the jacksey sad

Ok, deep breath. I have been in a very similar situation to you although Dh was very understanding. I can completley relate to how you are feeling but you must know deep down you are BU. You are in pain and yearning for another baby - it is such a strong emotion. Don't let your feelings make you bitter but do allow yourself to feel them. Is there anyone in RL you can talk to or prehaps counselling.

Babydust coming your Hope it happens soon.

Perfectly natural reaction. Last year i had 2nd ectopic, I was dropping my daughter off at nursery (some months later) and there was a women there showing the staff her new baby. I felt torn apart.sad I went home and cried. Please think about counselling if you have no one to talk to. BTW - ectopicpregnancytrust has fab messgae boards with a section about TTC - you will get lots of support

Thank you for taking the time to post smile and I mean that. I'm not really sure what else to do at the moment sad i'm sat on my own whilst DH has taken his rings off sad and hotfooted it to the spare room sadsad

I know this is'nt an excuse but he's a man and they don't feel it like we do. Can you talk to him? Please don't let this tear you apart (unless there are other issues?).You really need DH right now. I can so understand your feelings, really I can but hold him close and let him in. smile

It makes me sad that you are having such a tough time. Is it possible to have some me time - I found that helped me a lot and some couple time?

havent got any advice for you, sorry, but sending you huge hugs, i dont think you are being unreasonable at all. ANYONE who wants a baby sooooo much would feel exactly the same. hope you get some help and that BFP soon

I'm really sorry things are so hard just now. YANBU - mc is dreadful no matter how many dcs you may have already. We had to TTC for some time before DS arrived. I found myself turning into a 'baby-mad-witch' (my own name for myself) as all the disappointment built up and especially as I tried to get over mc. What really helped me hold on to some sanity was taking baby breaks for two months each year so that we could have a holiday from thinking and agonising about it all. It was really hard to do (kept thinking 'tik-tok') but it helped keep DH and I together through it all. Otherwise we found the tension was overwhelming. [and in classic fashion; DS was conceived during one of these breaks when we ran out of condoms!]

HTH - big hugs to you.

How are you today PP? my dh said did'nt express his feelings either, i got very fustrated by this which led to rows. in the end he broke down and said that he was so worried about losing me, after this things between us were
