Hang in there, Denise!

I can't go to the gym or the store without meeting at least one "tummy-woman" or happy couple with a snuggly 3-week-old bundle.[:(]

You took the words right out of my mouth. I just smile at them, but inside I am telling them how much I hate them and how dumb they look. But funny thing....I usually only do this to people I don't know. The people I do know I am actually comfortable with...for the most part anyway. I still don't like them inside though. LOL

I wish I really knew what to say - I have prayed so hard for all of you ladies for your BFPs!! I remember when I had my first miscarriage, every woman in SF was pregnant and walking past me - ugh! I had a hard time understanding why I couldn't have a baby. I still don't understand why some of us have it "easy" and for others it takes such a long time. I truly pray and hope that you are blessed soon and we'll be sharing in your pregnancy.

Denise, we aren't even trying, and I still get upset when I see all these pregnant people around [:p]! We were at the Zoo on Memorial Day, and I swear, every family there was young, had like 2 kids and one more practically popping out[}:)]. While we struggle and think and plan and try to decide if we should try again, or count our blessings and quit while we are ahead. Good Luck to you, I hope to be cursing at your big tummy soon[;)]!

Hi Denise,

I just wanted to let you know I was thinking of you.. It really is heartbreaking knowing you, I and all the other deserving women on here are having a hard time. You definately can add me to the list of people above that also share your frustration. You're not in this alone. This journey can be really discouraging - but please try and keep your hope.. I pray that your ++++ comes soon..

Take care of yourself and keep us posted with any news...
~~~BIG HUGS~~~

Denise, I can TOTALLY relate to how you feel. I keep expecting my SIL to tell me she is pregnant and I have been bracing myself for WEEKS trying to prepare for it. [}:)] I agree it is SOOO frustrating to hear all these other people talk about their pregnancies, and in my case, their babies. I just want to scream!!!! But, as I'm sure all of us do, I just put on a happy face and act excited for the person [:D]
