Thanks hun, you too. This ttc business isn't fun anymore
Yes! Hopefully we will both have babies by Christmas xx
Amongst other reasons I had to leave my job because of this. The disappointment and embarrassment around all the other pregnant ladies and new mums was too hard to take. I couldn't put up a front anymore. Hope knowing that you're not the only one gives you some support.

I hate the feeling that as soon as I leave, I get a pity party thrown in my honor! I don't want that, I just wanna be normal! Whatever that is....
Hugs to u x
Chillies know what you mean. My advice is to not get too overwhelmed. Look around for another job so you don't feel trapped. Find another job before you leave. I left knowing that I wouldn't work until I have a baby. It's hard now after a year and a loss, and still no live baby. Everyone knows our story, want to be normal too. Hope all goes well with you xx

Massive hugs gorgeous xxx I went through 5 miscarriages while working as a swimming teacher - for babies and small children plus older. It felt like everyone was pregnant except for me, and everyone else under the sun could *remain* pregnant except for me. I felt awful, imcompetent, useless and as if there was something awful wrong with me such that this was happening. Everytime one of the baby mums told me I was really good with babies and asked why I didnt have any of my own and when was I going to have one I wanted to pull her hair out and scream and swear and as I was in the pool had no escape. I got to the point of wanting to quit amd not wanting to go in and every miscarriage made it worse. It's a rotten feeling, but after a while you get a bit numb, its not a lot better but it hurts less. I know thats not a massive comfort but I hoepe its a little. You're certainly not alone or different in feeling this way - its utterly normal and understandable. Unfortunately, unless you can get a job just with men there will always be a little of it, but some obviously have less than others xoxoxoxox

I would never leave here without somewhere to go. I'm thinking about talking to my manager to see if I can knock back some days so I can do more things-be happy, do a course, whatever-just not be 'that girl'.
