Ups and Downs

Things have been so up and down in the "fertility" department. One day I am feeling hopeful and excited- the next on the verge of tears for no apparent reason. Some days my feelings literally change mid day- like today. I was doing good- not thinking about anything- then I get to read my sisters blog and see that she is officially showing. She has that cute baby bumb that I want SOOOO bad and am SO far away from getting. I start to feel jealous, irritated, and sad. Mad at myself for feeling sad and so on. I have a friend on facebook who I SWEAR de-friended me for not going to a stinken baby shower the DAY I found out my sister was pregnant. That felt good. Reminded me that people probably think I'm such a jerk about this stuff- but what they don't know is they don't understand! I didn't even get out of bed that day- let alone feel the need to hear about babies for two hours! It takes strength for me to go to those events on regular days let alone the hard ones.

I got ALL my testing done and it actually came back normal! Super exciting on one hand that things look good- but frustrating on the other that it's not happening for any "explained" reason. People tell you to "Relax"- so I try SOOOO hard to relax. It doesn't work- the feelings just come back and haunt you. So here I am- back at square one- once again.


  1. Hugs! And to the friend that de-friendedyou... They aren't worth your time. Andyeah,, I am a firm believer that relaxing helps, but been there tried that. It doesnt come so easily. You think about it when you don't even know you are. You aren't alone. I can't remember if told you about the blog " from IF to when" but if you don't already go check it out! Google it, sorry I'm on my phOne. She swears, but she speaks her true thoughts and I find comfort in her honest posts.

  2. Let the chick that defriended you isn't worth a second thought. I am sorry that you are feeling so down! It took almost two years to get pregnant with Mc and I remember feeling so hopeful and then my period would come-how can you not stop thinking about it?... You are an amazingly strong woman and I apppreciate your honesty about what you are going through :) You aren't alone and have lots of people praying for you :)
