Re: ready to cry

It is hard to be content when you have an empty place left to fill. I look at my son who is now 2 and I have mixed feelings. I know I should enjoy this time wholeheartedly and I do try, but I always have this sadness because he just might be the one and only "baby" I get to mother and I'm NOT content with that thought. Then I start to feel guilty because I know I am lucky to have one. Am I selfish to want two?

I too struggle with seeing friends get pregnant easily or those who aren't even trying and do. Then there are those who are downright insensitive. One friend who found out she was pregnant with her third child a few weeks after I found out I was pregnant with our Aug. 09 baby that was lost to miscarriage had the gall to email me and say, "I HATE being pregnant!". I was the LAST person she should have been complaining to.

Hang in there! So sorry for your struggle.

When we are in the mud of ttc'ing, it's hard. Go easy on yourself. We all have our moments that we feel how you do.

Seems I'm not the only one.

It's hard when you want another - but it's easy to forget I'm not alone.

Thanks for all the encouraging posts.

for us all. Maybe we can all get BFPs the same month!
