So, since I pretty much have TTC-related thoughts on my brain all the time these days, I'm finding that I keep seeing pregnant women everything, pregnancy test commercials on the tv all the time etc. I feel like I'm going crazy! Does anyone else feel that way as well?

Last night I sat down on the bus and there was a giant ad across from me that said "Think you might be pregnant?" and I was like 'aaaahhhh'.

Yep! Same here. And don't even get me started with how many babies I notice now. I just want to eat them all up.

Yep... they're everywhere!

I dunno if there's a baby boom going on right now or if they all come out of the woodwork just to taunt me, but they are EVERY-FREAKIN'-WHERE!!!

Oh Yes, tons of empathy here! I never noticed it till about a year and a half ago. That's when hubby and I got serious about our TTC timeline. I work in a restaurant and have been analyzing female bellies for a while now. Almost every young woman that comes in looks slightly pregnant to me. I've even thought VERY young girls are pregnant. It's driving me nuts. It's not completely me though- my co workers have made some comments too. Lots of girls and young women have been wearing maternity-style shirts and stringy tank tops that make their bbs and bellies look bigger. Not sure if it's a new style of what, but I once diagnosed a 14 year old as being 6 months pregnant. LOL, maybe I am crazy....

The other day at work my coworker and I were at the customer service desk together during a quiet moment with no customers. Suddenly there were two ladies standing right by the desk talking to a third and they were both about 7-8 mos along...and so is my coworker, lol. I was surrounded by pregnant ladies!!

Ick!! That's too many bellies for me!

I hate the fact that the first thing I look at on most women anymore is their belly. I think it's all a matter of what your mind is focused on. When I was struggling with my weight, that was what I noticed most about other women. Now that I'm struggling to get pregnant, I notice that everyone except me seems to have a bump.

The other day I went to a lunch thing with work and fpof course the all started talking about babies because a a couples girls recently had babies and there are now 3 new girls at work now pregnant so they were all talking about that. Then today I had my sisters baby shower which was a lot of fun and I survived. I did have a moment of weakness and felt jealous. Not to mention yesterday while I was waiting to see the doctor I ran into my friend that is 8 months pregnant! So yeah....they are everywhere.

I have a permanent "bump". My food baby


I think most of the women I think are pregnant are actually not but just look it. On the other hand, I do see a TON of preggo ladies, and am SO incredibly jealous. But I do often think about how long it may have taken THEM to conceive. Sure, a lot of them probably had "oopsies" or one month and done type things, but there could be quite a few still that waited as long or longer as I have been waiting, and that helps me cope with it a bit, especially since I don't actually know them. Just a thought

Wow - so I'm definitely not alone on this one! My sister in law had a baby last weekend so that's probably not helping me at all.
