I hate feeling jealous. I have three super-tight girlfriends. Two of them had their first babies within the last year. The other one is due any day now. Our relationships are strained. I try to be a good friend, but it's painful every time we talk. One new mom constantly tells me to enjoy my life without kids while I can. Thanks for the insightful advice. I am missing my close friendships and feeling rather lonely.
Kate Middleton just had the royal baby!!! Everyone in my office is participating in a pool to guess what his name will be. I'm royally jealous! Not because she's beautiful. Not because she's royalty. I'm jealous because she's a regular woman who had a baby.
It's been over a year since the first miscarriage and almost a year since the second miscarriage. We're still using condoms. I'm terrified of becoming pregnant again. I've been undergoing accupuncture for four months but still insist on condoms. I started up smoking again just so I have an excuse not to get pregnant. How crazy is that?
My husband insists that we just had bad luck. He won't discuss adoption. I don't want to go through the terrible pain again. It's weird, because I've never been scared of anything. I'm adventurous and I take risks.
Am I the only one who is terrified to try again? How did you get the strength to try again?
