that ugly green monster

no...I'm not talking about the r.ed s.ox here people

At my shower in mid-august my cousin mentioned having her last hurrah before trying to get pregnant with #2. Well she just IM'ed me and of course, she's 8 weeks along. I shouldn't care. Not only do I have my Sweetness but my cousin and I are super close and she was so supportive of me during all of our infertility crap. In fact, she found out right when Sweetness was born and didn't tell anyone right away so we could have our time. Which is beyond sweet. But still, I just hate that is comes so easy for some people....

Boy do I hear you. I think I'd have to describe mine as a GIANT green monster, and I don't see if going away anytime soon!

I totally understand, I guess we will never totally get rid of IF.

I'm with you all the way. My Mom just told me the other day about 3 of my cousins that just found out they're pregnant with their 2 or 3rd children. Great for them. Oh yeah, and they're all (except for one) younger than me. Again, great for them.

Yup...it's amazing how easily some people can do it...it's amazing that they can do it without pills, shots, patches, daily doctor visits, stress, tears, ultrasounds, blood tests, and did I mention tears? I know you're happy for her, but I too find it amazing when people can just 'get pregnant.' You're a good cousin though b/c you probably didn't let on at all...how's the baby?

WOW, you have that same monster in your life too? There must be alot of those out there. I agree with you, it doesn't seem fair that some people can get pregnant so easily. My husbands cousins have
8 kids among the 4 of them and 2 of them are expecting in Nov and Jan. It is just so easy for them to get pregnant and so freaking difficult for us. I am right there with you girl. I would love to get pregnant and have baby #2, but we have been trying for almost 2 years and still no luck. I should've known that if baby #1 required IVF that baby #2 would probably need that too. A part of me was just holding out hope!!
