Bit of a vent, feeling a bit down.
Through a weird set of circumstances my ex's sister has gotten in touch with me and now added me on Facebook. We enjoyed each others company 5 years ago and the breakup was amicable so I had no issue reconnecting.
Problem is I have now found out my ex who 'never wanted kids' has a child and I'm devastated. My husband and I are really struggling with fertility issues and ivf and I think I'm just really jealous.
Why do I have such strong emotions about this given I have no feelings for my ex.
I feel really silly for reconnecting because now I can't stop thinking about how he has everything I want.

I don't think you're silly for feeling that way. That would be hard to hear. Hugs xx

When we were doing ivf every pregnancy was a kick in the stomach and a reminder of what I didn't have.
Take it easy and acknowledge it for what it is. A sh***y situation for anyone to find themselves in.

infertility is so incredibly hard. It messes with you ... usually these things are not about him, just all about you.

This happened to me. I ended a relationship with someone because he didn't want marriage and kids. He is now married with two kids. It hurts because of what could've been, and where I am in my life now, but it doesn't mean I would want to be with him iykwim. It's just strange the way life works out, isn't it?
I think it's natural to think on how life could be different, and I think your feelings are definitely to be expected. Do you think it's possible that finding this out was a catalyst for releasing feelings you've been holding at bay?
