It happened.

A very close friend just announced her three-month-old pregnancy to me over lunch. She is very, very sweet, she did it in a very, very sweet way (she knows we’re trying and have been unsuccessful so far, though I didn’t mention this cycle’s BFN to her today), and I actually am very, very excited for her. No joke. I did not have to fake my excitement when she told me. I also kind of had a feeling she was going to tell me that. I had a few clues.

Needless to say, I am also very, very jealous. It hurts. Why can’t someone fix us or me or this?

    I am SO sorry. Obviously, I know exactly what you feel like – on both the BFN and the friend thing. BOTH SUCK. I am feeling pretty helpless myself right now so I am not going to be much help at the moment. At least you know you are not alone, right?? 🙂
    I’m thinking of you and hoping for the best next go ’round.

    It’s amazing how we have a radar for knowing… So many times I’ve heard “Guess what…?” and I already know what they’re going to say.

    I’m trying to find that happiness for others, but wonder when and if I’ll be able to experience it myself.

    Ick. I hate the feeling of being genuinely happy for others and silently aching for yourself.

    And it’s almost worse when you know before they tell you…b/c then you feel like they’ve been holding off telling you b/c their “scared” to share their news….well, at least it’s been like that for me, lately. One of my g/f hadn’t contacted me in a few weeks – and I just got this feeling she was pregnant. I just called her and asked her. She was but they’d only found out the night before, so it wasn’t like she was hiding it but it was totally weird that I just knew. kwim? That’s happened 2x now w/ me…and it’s kinda starting to really suck (the knowing part). Ok…I seriously just rambled on.

    I wish I had something profound to say. Unfortunately, I’m just not one of those types. *HUGS to you. Keeping you in thoughts and prayers.
