I hate pregnancy announcements...

We've all been where I'm at right now. I've just been hit with a drive-by announcement. My cousin, lovely gal, just sent me an e-mail with the subject line of "GREAT NEWS!!!" and before I even opened it I knew what it said. Still, as I read the words, I felt as though I'd been punched in the stomach.

I really am happy for her because she and her husband will be excellent parents. But,...oh what am I explaining here of all places for. You all get it so just make sure to send me some love.

I'll talk with you later.

    Take it easy. I got the news in a phone call. What made it was worse I just miscarried and her due date is two weeks before mine.

    This week I was hit with THREE of those... and out of those three- One was from DH's brother's wife, and one was from a friend who calls me her "fertility guru."
    A case of the student surpassing the master much?
    It sucks. You don't have to explain. We know.
    Feel better,

    I am so sorry. I know how this feels - like you can't breathe. My brother called with similar happy news the same day I found out the Beta HCG from my second IVF cycle was negative (actually, turns out I was pregnant but it was ectopic - a long story). Anyway, I felt like the wind had been knocked out of me.

    It is not fair. Stay strong.

    It looks like were all on the same wave length. I don't know what is happening this week but everywhere I turn there is a success story about ttc and how they finally got their dream. I know it is supposed to be inspiring but how can it be when the miracles seem to be few and far between. Why can't I be inspired by all of these miracles. Oh, to be inspired and naive again would be a miracle in itself for me sadly... Hope Tomorrow see's you smiling and thanks for the visit. I will be back often!

    Yup. I get it, too. I was hit with it last week as well, and man did I want to eat through the walls with my teeth.

    Even when it's easy to be happy for them, it's hard to be happy for them.
