So I just found out last night that my sister is pregnant. For the 3rd time. And they were supposedly using protection. Just like last time, when she also got pregnant while using protection. And the time before that, that just happened to be a fluke. None were planned, and she didn't try to have any of them. So yeah, just a little sad, but happy for her. I just don't get how she can get pregnant just sharing water with someone practically, and we've been trying a year and nothing so far...

I just saw that someone on another board got pregnant, and this was her FIRST TIME TRYING! She was brand new to the board too which just like ugh knife in the heart. I want to be happy for her but not only am I super jealous, but I am just like really seriously?! Like so many people including myself have tried for SO long on this board and she just is like oh I think I'd like to try to get pregnant. Oh look, I did. UGH Ok rant over. Thanks for understanding!

I feel ridiculous saying this, but it upsets me when people that just got married or got married after me are pregnant before me! We've been trying for nine months now, and my one friend, married less than a year, got pregnant while still on the Pill! Are you freaking kidding me???? It wasn't even planned! I refuse to tell any of my friends that we're trying, but every time I hear yet another person announce their pregnancy I try to feel happy for them (which I am), but I'm also so jealous!

I am so, so, so, so, so sick of hearing that if my husband and me just get drunk and have sex we'll get pregnant. Because don't we know that liquor is imperative to the process. I mean come on, that's the best advice, that I didn't actually ask for in the first place, you have to give me? I am ridiculously jealous of all the pregnant ladies I see around me. I went to the mall yesterday to buy some jeans and was bombarded with tiny, adorable babies and women just bursting with fertility, including one girl who looked no older than 16. I try not to have "woe is me" days everyday, but sometimes it's just too much handle. And no being told not to stress about it does not help at all. Just because I know my time will come, eventually, doesn't make handling today any easier.

So I got through my cousin's baby shower with some mimosas and a good support system. I'm happy for her and she suffered a traumatic brain injury 3 years ago so she NEEDS it more than me right now. But....my friend just got pregnant after trying since August and she 1. started using the OPKs I recommended and 2. started doing acupuncture like I recommended. So I guess I can "teach" people how to get pregnant but I can't get pregnant myself!! Oh well...my life is sooo busy now and I am basically over it for now. If it happens it happens....here's to 2012 being our year!!! :)

I have read about the leg thing but it doesn't really do much- the idea is to keep a pool right on the cervix. It isnt easy to get your boy at the right angle so that the "pool" isnt to high or too low but I think the easiest is to use a smallish-size pillow under your hips and lay on your back for about 15-20 minutes after the act.

RUNNERGRL7380-I'm sorry that you had to hear that from your doctor! That's horrible!! You'd think that she would support you especially because she is older than you and she just had a baby!?!? Oh my goodness..I love my mother in law but if she said that to me I'd be a little creeped out! That's great that you're doing acupunture to relieve the stress!! It will happen for us but until than I'll continue to wish nothing but great things for each of you girls and say a little prayer as well!! Baby dust or juju as my friend say to you all! :)

I hear you!!! I went for my annual this past week and my dr, who JUST had a baby 4 months ago and is like in her mid/late 30's goes to me, "Well at YOUR age, you only have an 8 percent chance each cycle to conceive." SHE'S OLDER THAN ME!!!!! And my mother in law told me to put my legs against the wall too...ewww. That was disturbing. I have started acupuncture to help with my stress levels though....

Why do people feel the need to give you "suggestions or tips" on how to get pregnant. "Oh, you just need to relax and then it will happen," or just lift your legs up for 30 mins...what the heck!? Really pretty sure we've tried it all and we ARE still not pregnant. I understand that they all just want to help but I just wish they'd just support us and pray for us versus giving us all this advice

ANNEKATHLEEN- I totally relate! My baby sister who just got married less than a year ago is pregnant with her first child! REALLY??? Oh and to top it off she said that she's gong to continue to ride her horse after she's reached 12 weeks against doctor's orders!!

RUNNERGRL7380- Oh my goodness...I don't blame you for going in! I would have had a hard time watching that as well! I love how positive you are!!! It really helps when you're feeling low! :) emoticon . Ladies, we are going to be terrific, INVOLVED parents and our kids will know they are LOVED!!

EDDYMESSE- WOW!! To have her issue...

A woman on the babycenter.com April 2012 birth club that I was a part of before I miscarried essentially wrote the following plea for help:

Title: I can't :(
Her story: I've already had 4 kids and now I'm pregnant with my 5th. I wasn't planning this and I don't feel like I should be having a 5th. I hate being so fertile.

Yeah. I had to leave that site.

I totally agree ladies!! I was at my in-laws last night and this couple was sitting there drinking beers while their 3 children were in their house unsupervised with other kids from the neighborhood and their 1 year old was stumbling around their yard unsupervised. I had to go inside because I could not watch it. Maybe God is making us wait it out because good things come to those who wait....and he is giving us some down time because he knows we will all be great parents and actually be INVOLVED haha :).

It so frustrating when I see women who have kids and they neglect them or mistreat them! Why do they get the gift of being a mother when there are SO many others like ourselves who would be grateful to have just one and would give them a fantastic home but have been unable to conceive as of now??!!! I just don't get it sometimes!!!!

I'm the same way girls. Everytime I get on Facebook it seems someone else is pregnant or just had a baby. It's driving me crazy. My husband is like oh it'll happen. Where I'm going crazy. I'm too scared to go to the doctors at this time I'm thinking it's just my weight so in a year I'll talk to my doctor if we haven't had any success. I think I'm just too overweight at this time. Working on getting this weight off and then we'll see. One of my best friend's and I were trying to get pregnant around the same time we joked about it really back in the spring. She is now pregnant with baby #3. I'm happy for her it's just rough. I feel the same way when is it going to be our turn?!?!?! We need to get some stuff together but if you try and plan out every thing before a baby no one would have them.

I agree with you both. And guess how horrible I feel that my best friend delivered her first baby today and I'm jealous of her? Yeah! I'm that guy; the one who gets jealous of her best friend's happiest moments in life. I was on the verge of tears today when I thought, "when's it my time?" Silly!

CCANEZ, I can totally relate!! we ARE ready and stable and trying and it is just as frusturating. And the people that ARE getting pregnant are "unplanned" pregnancies and it pisses me off too. I know we all have our "time" but it does still get to me. I am learning how to be happy for people and I keep saying that god is holding out for a "good one" for us. Good luck to you and I hope you find a stable job soon so you can start trying! Until then...live it up!! :)

I have a rant...it's based on jealousy. I'm jealous of everyone who has any kind of connection to me who winds up pregnant. Don't get me wrong, I'm happy they get to experience what I want so badly, and every child is a gift. But I'm so angry and jealous it's not me.

The thing is, we can't even try for kids right now because my employment situation is too sketchy. I lost my permanent full time job in the winter and have only been able to land temp jobs since then. I had plans. My DH and I were planning to focus on moving towards a family by the end of this year. Now everything is up in sh*t. I've found out through Facebook about 3 friends from high school who just had babies, and a few from college. It is so frustrating to see every couple of months about another person who is in a situation to be able to have kids!

Everytime we seem to get a little ahead to move to that part of our live, some jerk or some bloody outside force throws a wrench in our plans! I thought by the age I am now I'd have a family and I feel like I'm getting too old - which is silly cuz I'm not even 30 yet. Jealousy is an evil emotion but I can't help but feel it!

I think you are absolutely right to feel upset... It's your greatest wish for now, right... Ok your husband might be right too, but still.... Thank God for chocolat!!!!

What does AF mean???? I keep reading all these shortcuts (abbreviations I think they are called) but I can't make anything of them...

Ok BF= boyfriend
DH= dear husband
BCP= birth control pills?

but al those ohter ones... maybe we should make a subject of that :)

I will make a lot of wishes into the universe that you'll be pregnant next month... I can't even start this year, have to wait till 2012.... Hope it wil happen soon then, but I'm overweight and 34 then... not very good conditions.... But I can imagine how you must feel... so rant away!!!!


greets, Kjoetiepaai


baby, I was born this way!!!

Ok...I think we need a ranting topic so when we are very mad (like I am today after getting AF) then we can just write our feelings out and be over it and feel better. I am ranting because I am just so sick of everyone telling me to "not stress" over getting pregnant and it will happen. I want it SOOOOOOOO badly that I am stressing and on days like this I think I am allowed to. I am stressing about NOT stressing how does that sound?? A lot of people around me are making it look sooo easy and it's annoying. My husband told me that if it is a year from now, then I can get upset but we have only really been trying for 3 months. But I have been off the pill for 2 years without an oops. We are allowed to have a pity party at least for 1 day out of the month. I am over it and my DH cooked me dinner and now I have some wine and chocolate in front of me :). WOW I FEEL BETTER NOW!! :)
