Merry (almost) Christmas ladies. I hope your little miracles are making your festive season extra special.
Does anyone else still feel the sting of LTTTC? I have a friend TTC their third and I feel like she thinks she's in the same boat as me. It took her 3 months each to conceive her first two boys, then fell first go earlier this year but sadly had a mc. I saw her a month ago, 2 months into TTC after the mc. She cried and cried and told me how she thought it was never going to happen for them again and how TTC a is taking over their lives and she can't handle it anymore. A total of 9 months TTC has resulted in 3 pregnancies!! Anyway, it turns out the day she was crying to me she was already pregnant again!! I'm getting almost daily calls and texts asking me for reassurance and saying she's terrified to lose bub as she doesn't know if she can carry to term, or if they lose this one it might take 'forever' to fall again. And even more frustratingly she asks for advice and doesn't take it - asks when to get a scan, I saw DO NOT go before 8 weeks because if you don't see a HB it will make you worry more... So she goes at 5w5d and guess what? NO HB yet!
I just feel like screaming 'you have no f**king idea what it's really like!!'. And I didn't even have it as mad as some! I'm not saying she isn't worried or anxious, or heart broken about her mc. I just feel she's being so damn insensitive!
