Why am I such a horrible person?


Sorry, I don't post on these boards much, I want another baby so badly that talking about it makes me want to cry but I needed to let off a little steam...

Last night my OH's brother and his gf came round with their baby and it was all going lovely until the GF started talking about the fact that they're going try for another baby come september. I felt sick and I couldn't join in much with conversation from then on.

I'm so jealous! What's wrong with me? We're waiting because I'm at uni, and we're saving to buy a house first, but it makes me so miserable to think of watching her go through a pregnancy again (see got pregnant the same month LO was born, so I've struggled through some really broody periods whilst she's been pregnant!)

Why can't I just be happy for them? We will TTC again, just not for a couple of years. Please tell me other people get like this too?

I don't have a baby but the jealousy feelings are completely normal.
I found it really hard when one of my best friends announced she was pregnant. I smiled and then went home and cried. I feel ok now but it is hard to beat the green eyed monster.

I am just concentrating on what I need to do first, though I would still be jealous if someone announced their pregnancy, I would try not to let it affect my relationship with them.

I was so jealous I couldn't handle it lol

I understand how you feel! When some good friends of ours announced that they were expecting their second baby I put on a good face while we were there and told them how excited I was for them but when I got home I just cried myself to sleep. I felt so jealous of them, which made me feel guilty because I should be happy for their blessing!

Yes I get jealous to the point of tears too. Guess it must be normal then. Also I hate it when all of my friends and family fuss over other peoples babies so much. Its all people go on about! I just wish I could escape it sometimes.

It is perfectly normal I seem to see pregnant woman everywhere and feel jealous of them all!
My sister is due to give birth on the 7th Feb by C section and I know when I see the new little baby I am going to be so broody and just be so jealous and sad afterwards but so happy for her!
