Completely unreasonable

For some reason I feel a twinge of jealousy whenever a friend tells me that she is pregnant.

Even though I myself was once pregnant and carried the baby (my younger son) to term.

Even though I do not want a third child.

It’s like a carry-over or something, from my past struggle with infertility.

    So it’s not just me. I still feel the same way too, especially when a friend of mine is having their second child. I wonder if it just never goes away.

    • Yeah… probably it won’t. Just like hearing about someone else’s miscarriage can reduce me to tears…even if it’s a fictional character in a book.

  2. Me too! There is something so wonderful and magical about being pregnant. I feel sorry for men that they will never know that feeling of having another person inside of you.

  3. I’m not sure how old your kids are, but I’ll share that this gets better with time. At least it did for me 🙂

    ehh, I don’t know about “completely” unreasonable… I sometimes envy my friends their “quick-turnaround.” Adoptions take years, and they’re holding their little one in “only” 9 months…not to mention the kiddo is there inside the whole time. 🙂
