I haven't posted on here in a couple of weeks - just dealing with alot of my emotions from the last round of IVF and mc...but I don't know how else to express myself. My sister in law who I love dearly just called to tell me she is pg. I tried to be happy and excited for her but I am sitting here bawling my eyes out. While I know she is a great mother to my two nephews there are somethings in her life that are not positive and my dh and I feel that the relationship she is in (her ex-husbands best friend) is not the greatest (he just left rehab and has not been doing well). I know I sound like a horrible person but I just felt all the hurt I have tried work though come flooding back. Why is this so hard??!!!!

I'm so sorry that you're dealing with this. And that you have to face pregnancy news on top of it all. (((HUGS)))

You do NOT sound like a horrible person! What you are feeling is totally normal and healthy and just goes along with the unfairness of infertility. My sister (who is a wonderful Mom in a wonderful marriage) announced 2 pregnancies while we were TTC. I bawled for days each time, not because I wasn't happy for her, but because it was so hard to watch them fill their house with children while we sat here in our silent, lonely house waiting for a BFP. I'm so sorry that you are having to deal with this on top of everything else...it stinks and it is completely not fair.

Lorie, I'm so sorry you are going through this. I mc when both me and my friend were pregnant at the same time and she is due in a couple weeks and it's a constant reminder of what should've been. We all understand what you are feeling and I hope you start to feel a tiny bit better as time goes by.

I'm so sorry you're going through this. You're feelings are completely normal. I also went through a similar situation with my best friend and several cousins getting pg and delivering babies in the past 3 years we've been ttc. It's a very difficult time in your life and having thoughs feelings are completely normal. Infertility is so unfair.

Thank you ladies...I think I just lost it...I was getting myself on track and ready to start another round of IVF when I got the news. It just hurt when she told me since she is early on she wanted to let me know in case something happens since I already knew what that was like - no kidding her exact words and they hurt like hell. You are all strong and wonderful women and I wish you all the best Thank you again.
