I’m a stepmum to a 4 year old boy and me and my fiancé have been trying for a baby for 3 years now. We’re having tests to find out why ive not got pregnant but in the last year 6 of our close friends have announced they’re expecting. I want to be really happy for them, but inside I’m so upset and jealous. It doesn’t help that everyone keeps saying ‘wait till you have your own kids’ or ‘it’s about time you both had a baby together’. I don’t want to tell people we’re trying because I don’t want the continuous questions and asking if i’m pregnant every month, but at the same time I want people to back off with all the comments!!!
Aww, I really feel for you. It must be so difficult when you are so desperate to have a baby and people are constantly banging on about it to you. Emotionally it is awful to deal with, each month waiting patiently, to then get let down again. I know it’s hard but I would try and forget about it (easier said than done I know), thinking about getting pregnant constantly will cause you huge stress, in return the chances of you getting pregnant under these circumstances could be considerably less. Try and be positive regarding your friends pregnancies and embrace their happiness. Focusing more on them and not thinking about getting pregnant may help you relax more too.I really hope it works out for you and I’m sure with a bit more of a relaxed approach, you will have your own bundle of joy really soon.
