Does anyone else get down on themselves for feeling disappointed? Every time I start to be frustrated or down regarding my infertility I immediately feel guilty because I have had one successful pregnancy. I always feel like, how dare I feel disappointed or frustrated when I have managed to have a child! I start to feel like people will think I'm not grateful for what I have. I know that's not the case and I am so incredibly grateful to have managed to beat the odds last time. But that doesn't stop me from wanting another.

How does everyone else deal with the guilt?

I hate when people always say to just be thankful for the children you have. I understand because I have had two children easily and now we are dealing with male infertility and only a 50% chance of natural pregnancy. We will be trying for #3 but I want it just as much as my first two. People don't realize that it hurts just as bad wether it will be your first or tenth child. Don't feel guilty or listen to other people. I have found people love to give opinions about things they have never experiences. I also find it easier to not tell people we are TTC that way we don't have people asking us why we are not pregnant yet or telling us we should just give up.

I used to feel guilty but I don't anymore. I don't think there's nothing wrong for wanting my son to have a sibling. I love my little man and I'm always thankful to be his mother.
