Post subject: Somedays it is just so bloody hard
It has been a rough couple days here. I am nervous abt upcoming IVF in mid April and everywhere I turn there are new babies or newly expecting mothers. I was in the store today and picked up prenatal vitamins and the cashier smiled sweetly and asked if they were for me. I said yes and she was beaming she told me she was pregnant too. I had to explain that I wasn't pregnant just trying. She than recommend OPKs to me and said that she got pregnant with her 1st baby after 1 1/2 month after ttc (that baby is now 6 months old) and that she was now pregnant with her 2nd child without even trying. She continues to tell me I had to try them bc she was sure they would help me get pregnant. I grinned, gave her the proper congratulations and left. She meant to help and she was really sweet but I felt like I had been suckered punched. Then a friend called to tell me that a friend of hers was going to stop by my house to pick something up that my friend had left here, anyways that friend of a friend is also pregnant with her 3rd child and her 2nd child is only 7 months old. My coworker also had a grandbaby this week. She is so cute. I have seen the baby twice now and have oohed and awed over tons of pictures. That was my coworkers six granchild from her daughter in law. I guess I am just struggling on why some of us have such a bloody time ttc while it comes easily to others. Just been one of those weeks that make me wonder why it is so hard for some of us.

I know exactly how you feel, it is so hard isn't it, hon?
A while ago I posted on here something similar when I was feeling pretty down, and one of the replies I got was "Be happy, darling! Your miracle will come!"
I don't know who wrote it, but it cheered me up at the time, so I will repeat it to you...
Be happy darling, your miracle will come!
Enjoying the TTC ride!

Thanks! I am feeling better now. I was just having a downer week! Sometimes I get so scared it will never happen other times I am sure that by the next year we will have a baby. Not sure what to blame it on so I will chalk it up to be hormones. They are so fun to blame!!
