My best friend has just had her first baby.

I've had 4 miscarriages and don't feel like I'm ever going to get to send a picture of DH and I with our newborn. I'm sitting in the car crying and feeling like shit.

Just needed to say it to some people who might understand. That is all.

I'm so sorry. I understand completely. You're not alone. I've had 4 miscarriages too, no living children. My best friend's baby is due in 3 weeks and I'm dreading it. flowers brew cake xxx

So sorry for your loses ladies, I've experienced similar it can be so painful. A good friend had her baby a week before my miscarried baby was due. It's been very difficult watching her baby grow up. I hope you get your little ones soon. I've been blessed with my LO and I try to remember every day how lucky I am x

Thank you for your replies.

Knowing I'm not alone helps me to feel less guilty for feeling this way. Number 3 would have been due about 5 weeks ago and number 4 at the beginning of December.

I want to be able to be happier for her. She has been the most wonderful, supportive friend to me.

flowers for you, OP. It's just horrible isn't it. For years I felt like I was being kicked in the stomach every time I got a new baby announcement. It's nothing to feel guilty about. It's how you feel and it's totally understandable in the circumstances.

I'm sorry lass. I hope it happens for you very soon.

Oh you poor thing, it's so hard sad

Friend at work got pregnant the same time I did and then of course I lost the baby. I am genuinely happy for her but it's hard to hear all her updates.

It's ok to be happy for her and sad for you - it's ok, honestly. She will know that if she's a good friend. Your sadness isn't at her, it's at your situation.

Thank you for helping me feel a bit more normal.

DH is out for the evening on a work do so have settled myself on the sofa for a good old cry, an M&S ready meal and an evening of trash TV.

Tomorrow is a new day.

I'm so sorry 😘 We've had 5 negative ivf cycles and 1 miscarriage and my best friend had a baby a few months ago and now doesn't speak to me and my other best friend has just told me she is pregnant.

It really is tough isn't it.
