Hearing other peoples pregnancy announcements are alwas a wonderful thing, but you cant help but feel that pang in your stomach too. I recently found out a co-worker was pregnant. Wasnt planned, just happened and I felt like I was kicked in the stomach. Of course I'm absolutely delighted for her, but the "why cant it be me" rang through my head. My manager knows I'm going IVF and I could see her looking at me out of the corner of my eye, and that just made me feel worse. It's like she pitied me. And I dont want to be pitied.
Its just so hard. Then we found out her due date, and I wont have even had my transfer by the time her baby is born. It's just such a tough tough process sometimes
