It's hard being High Risk, as we all know. Does anyone else ever feel resentful of non high-risk pregnant women? I know I do sometimes. I hear friends say they wish they could have as many ultrasounds as me, and I just think "I'd really rather not need them!"

At this point I am more resentful of my own body. I feel like it betrays me, and I'm angry that it can't just do pregnancy normally. Does that make sense?

Yes, I feel the same way. I am so angry at my body for making things difficult. Which makes me resent healthy women even more, because their bodies DO work. I feel like "why not me too?"

I have to agree with all of you. And I am envious! I am so envious of women that aren't praying to the porcelain god, and aren't worried about if they lost any more weight, et cetera.

I think I feel the same....I am more resentful to myself. When I had DD 10 years ago I had NOTHING wrong with me. Healthy, happy, uneventful pregnancy. And then this one its like you name it I got it or have had to test for it.

It makes me wonder do I really wanna try again or give up at this point. Can I do all this that I did this time again?

I'm not pregnant anymore.. But I had those same feelings with my first pregnancy. But now I look at it as this is the cards that I'm dealt.. Just how life goes, life isn't fair..I just had gestational diabetes, which is vary manageable.. It would be a little different if I had something more serious..

I think it just frustrates me more than anything. My first pregnancy was fine, but then I miscarried my second so my next with my youngest was just fraught with fear, but worked out ok, but then I had another miscarriage, and still had no idea why. Now that I know why and am being treated the way I need to be I have a little hope but I still just don't know if this will happen or if it will all be snatched away from me again.

Loss definitely complicates the picture, I lost my son directly because of my (then undiagnosed) high risk condition, so I think I'm extra resentful as a result. And angry at my body for failing my son, and angry at myself for not realizing I was sick.
