I think I might be sticking closer to this board. On my main board (WTTC Grads) we've had MANY BFPs in the last week. 2 of them were today! Now I think there are only 2 or 3 of us still actively trying over there. I hate being the debby downer. I love these girl so much, and i'm absolutley excited for them.... but i just feel so left behind. I feel like no one can relate anymore.

I wanted to thank you ladies for being so welcoming. I've learned so much from you guys, and i'm grateful for the guidance as i start this process. Over here i'm always genuinely excited, and have no negative association with BFPs. I guess it just gives me hope that with with a little help and a LOT of time, I will get mine too. I'm kinda rambling, having trouble getting across exactly whats in my head and heart, but i'm sure you'll understand. You guys have been here before lol.

I totally understand. My main board is a very small one, but we've had 2 BFP's this week (out of maybe 8 regulars). While I am truly very happy for these ladies.... it hurts too. In 3 years on here and 4 years TTC I've watched too many come and go and have their first, their second and some even TTC their third now all while I sit and wait for my first with DH. It's hard. None of us should have to deal with this, but I think many of us do end up feeling "left behind" at some point or another.

Thanks to Jaidynsmum for my new siggy!

you don't hav to leave. I am only on the first cycle and even those who have gotten their BFP are so helpful to me. I love that they have stuck around to answer all the questions I have.

((HUGS)) I understand where you are coming from and will be so happy to have you here a bit more!

On my PR, we have a "preggo" forum and just about everyone who started out with me there have already had their second child. Then another wave of PR mommies were TTC (I was STILL there) and boom, most of them have already gotten preggo and are in second or third tri's. I just couldn't check in anymore. It was too painful.

The gals here are super, super, super! I feel so welcomed here. It's the perfect board! It's different, here, when gals get their BFP's. It just seems so much MORE and I am always so very excited for these ladies. I don't know why my attitude is different with these ladies than the others, but it just happens to be.

I can totally relate, hon.

I remember that from back when I first started TTC...I was on the main TTC forum and then I moved to the TTC 6months+ forum...and then TTC 12 months+.....each time it was harder and harder. And it is SO hard to see those lucky women that are able to get pg within the first few months. I sure wouldn't wish this TTCwMA journey on them BUT at the same time, it is still hard to see.

We understand

I would love to have you post more here---I don't feel I know you that well

Hang in there---we all have difficult days on this journey and we're here to support you during those rough moments. And we can't wait to celebrate your with you!

I can totally relate......I definitely am more genuinely excited for girls that have struggled with infertility and have either gotten their with MA or not. Every child is a blessing, don't get me wrong, but it's hard to do cartwheels for the girl that BDs on CD14 and gets a

You are definitely not alone. I have wanders to other boards and it's tough when you are trying to relate to people that just aren't going through the same stuff you are.

I'm glad you like this board and will be sticking around... it's a wonderful place to be and you'll always find good support here!!

Yet another wonderful siggy by HeatherW.... thank you so much!!!

It is so hard seeing so many BFPs when you have to work your butt off to get one!
