Why the friggety frig is everyone around me getting pregnant at the drop of a hat. My SIL "wasn't trying, have a coil, it just happened", and "ooh, I just came off the pill and BAM, I was pregnant", or maybe even "I've never even had sex, who knew it was so easy...look at me a pregnant virgin".
Maybe not so much the last one but still, when is it my turn?! When will I be pregnant. This sucks, and is shit and is making me so sad and resentful.
I know that no one can say anything, or has any answers but I needed to unload!
Best place for it thebiscuitstrikesback.. Sending you a hug and, although it doesn't make you feel any better... These things happen when they see supposed to - but I understand how frustrating it can be!
The longing and constant feeling of upset and let down is really taking a toll. I think it's starting to effect my relationship with DH, but he gets upset when I mention maybe stopping trying for a couple of months. It's not fun any longer. Thanks for letting me bend your ear mrs
they do say... Easing off the pressure can improve things? Maybe sit down with your other half and explain that the stress of trying to plan and conceive, you feel, is the reason why it isn't happrning... Then get drunk and in love on some champagne and have a night in bed together - OR take a a weekend away, not thinking about it? Might just be the ticket? Sending you a lot of wishes and hugs though
I have only been trying for seven months which is not long at all but to me its a life time, especially as our friends started trying a few months before us and now have a baby and two other friends are now pregnant, every month i get myself worked up and stressed about it and i don't think its doing me any good, i really believe that stress is a major factor in why some of us are not getting pregnant, Biscuit you are in the same position a lot of us are in , its just we see more and more people getting pregnant but I'm sure one day soon it will be our turn, hang in there!!
I had been TTC my second baby for 2 years & everyone who had their first around same time as me has had a second & some even a third. Now people who had their first 18 months - 2 years after me have had or are pregnant with their second including one girl who got pregnant straight after coming off the pill I'd already been trying about 18 months at the point she's due in a couple of months & I never managed to get pregnant so I've given up!
It really is so frustrating why everyone else can get pregnant so easily when you're struggling.
