    Hi girls,
    How does everyone cope with friends announcing their pregnancies? Feeling pretty heartbroken & angry at the world tonight. Friends of ours emailed to tell us they were pregnant with twins. Their first was from ivf they got pregnant 2nd transfer & she is 1 this pregnancy was natural. It's a real kick in the guts. They are going to have their 3rd before we are even blessed with a child. Oh & did I tell you all what I do for a job...I'm a nurse in a neonatal intensive care unit. Life just isnt fair.

    Lizzyg I know how you feel, every one of my friends now has a baby or is pregnant. We were out last week with a friend who was complaining in front of us (a person who knows we are starting IVF by the way), she is pregnant with her third but was saying how relieved she was that her hd finally came round to 3, saying she wouldn't of been happy with 2 and doesn't know how she would of coped if he had made her keep to just 2. All 3 pregnancies have been natural and in the first or second month of trying. I wanted to punch her in the face right then! But people just don't think, they try to be supportive but just say stupid **** all the time. I also got told to make the most of my designator driver last week

    Hi Lizzy, Most of my friends have or are having babies. It's hard. Everytime I hear a friend pregnant I'm really happy for them but there's a small pang in my heart. And I just hope it's my turn one day. I find it harder when they said how easy it is for them or they were unsure if they should have one and bam they are pregnant. So far for me I'm still able to be happy for them without feeling angry. I got a bit sad a couple of times but DH said its their time not ours so I shouldn't be sad. Our time will come.

    Soready, luckily none of my friend has complained about being pregnant. That would make it really hard for me to sit and listen.

    Lately my motto has been good things come to those who wait. I hope we all get our turn soon.

    Lizzy I'm sorry that it's getting you down it's hard when you want something really badly and it seems everyone around you is getting the only thing you really want. A close friend has just announced her pregnancy this week and I am super excited but DF and I have only just started our journey. I'd imagine if we had been at it for longer then that probably would have been harder to hear.

    Sending positive vibes and truck loads of baby dust your way


    Two girls, one dream and baby you are it!

    Aww Lizzy, that's just crap. All my friends have kids or are pregnant. I get sad (nicely hidden though) when friends get pregnant - none of them have struggled. I got angry when one friend got pregnant and hadn't even been taking folate ... At work drinks last week a drunk guest said 'I have a 7 yr old c..nt of a kid' - I just about leapt over the boardroom table to throttle the idiot. Some days are harder than others, but we just have to believe our time will come and that karma will (gently) bite those thoughtless souls on the *** at some point by the way, what you do for work is amazing, it takes a very special person to do what you do - so thank you xxx

    Thanks everyone! I know u r all right & I need to stay positive because our time will come we just don't know when & as our journey gets longer it is becoming increasingly harder to stay positive & sometimes I feel like I can't escape from it especially when I work at a maternity hospital with babies & see pregnant women on a daily basis. I just have to stay strong, we all do.

    Lizzy, hugs. What you do is amazing and I'm sorry you feel down. Be kind to yourself and if you are down, you can vent to us. x

    I have a friend who has never tried to get pregnant and is now pregnant with her 2nd, I was talking to her about how stressful and crappy the drugs where on my last OI I did Tamoxifen day 2-10 then did a trigger then did booster shot from 4dpo every 3 days until 13dpo 4 shots I think, anyway having HCG in your system while wishing you are pregnant is down right cruel, anyway she said oohhh well try 9 months of it then honey, I nearly hung up the phone o just d=brushed it off and tried to explain but to someone who has never struggled will never get how fertility hormones really mess with you, needless to say I don't tell her anything anymore!

    OMG. That is possibly the most insensitive thing I have ever heard! Some people really don't think.

    Lizzy - it must be particularly hard for you to be surrounded all the time. All I can say is, we get it vent as often as you like, and be kind to yourself, it's a hard road we're on and yours has some real crappy bits! Big hug x

    Big hugs Lizzy. It is such a hard thing to deal with, but just try remind yourself that your time will come one day too. I like to think that when DH and i finally have our little miracle baby, it will make us even better parents - appreciating them so much more and sharing a much stronger bond and love for them compared to someone who has not had to fight like hell to create a family. Hopefully in three or so months time you will be the one announcing that you are going to be a mum. xx
