Near tears

A newly married colleague just told me that she's pg.

She got married in August.

I smiled and congratulated her, but I feel like I'm dying inside.

It's been almost six years.

Is it ever going to be my turn???

  5. I am sorry. The simultaneous actions of smiling on the outside and dying on the inside is way too familiar to me as well. I pray that your time is SOON.

  6. I'm so sorry. I know a lady that got married in December and got pregnant on her honeymoon. It's frustrating and painful. I'll be praying for you!

    We know this feeling all too well and it sucks.

    I'm praying for you that you will have strength and courage to trust Him, especially during times like these.

    Sending LOTS of prayers your way right now!!

  11. Hugs to you JB.

    I don't know if it helps or not, but it took us 7 years to have K. But we did have her.

    You will be a mother. I just wish you didn't have to wait any longer.

  15. Awww, I'm so sorry too! I hate having to measure my response every time, like, I can't be overly-happy (ungenuine) and I can't be sad (or everyone will know that I hurt) so I have to make sure that I'm just the right amount of happy.

    And then I go home and cry.

    Sending out a big hug over cyberspace!

  16. I am so sorry. It really does suck that it has to hurt so bad to hear pregnancy announcements. I hate in-person announcements the most. I am sure the look on my face never conveys the message of 'congrats' I somehow manage to utter.

  18. Wow. August. That seems like five minutes ago, but according to my quick count, it's 8-9 months ago (!!). Sometimes I think that maybe it's not that other people are having babies so fast or so much sooner than is logically possible, but that my perception of time has slowed down so I can't tell how many children I could/should have had by now, how many grades they'd have finished, how close I'd be getting, at 29, to being DONE having a giant family.

    Hang in there, friend. I guess it's about all we can do.

  19. Sending hugs!! I can totally relate. A girlfriend of mine was married in September and sent out a Christmas text announcing her pregnancy....

    Just hold on to hope! Don't EVER lose hope!
