Hard to feel happy

My husband have been ttc since October. We waited and waited until we were ready thinking it wouldn't take that long, but now it is March and still nothing. At first it didn't bother me too much, but since we have been trying I've known about 6 people close to me that have gotten pregnant. Most of the people I was extremely happy for, but I recently found out that 2 very close friends of mine are pregnant. It wouldn't have been a huge deal, but the day I found out about both of them I had gotten my period and found out that I wasn't pregnant! Also, both of the girls are younger than me and one was trying for only a month and the other one wasn't trying at all. Although I was happy for them, I went downstairs in the middle of work and had a breakdown. I started sobbing! I feel so guilty because they are my close friends, but so jealous and almost bitter that they conceived so easily. My husband and I don't have any children and are doing everything right and I guess I am just so frustrated! I guess I just needed to vent and maybe some words of encouragement! Thanks for listening!

I totally understand how you feel. It's so hard when you hear about everyone around you TTC the first couple of months or even without trying. We've been trying for almost a year. And my Dr. put me on Femara last month. We also waited until we were more settled financially. We've been married for 7 1/2 years and are the last ones out of all our siblings to have children. It's hard when everyone around you is waiting and wondering why we haven't had a baby yet. We always just assumed we would be pregnant right away. I guess it just happens easily for some. I never would have thought I would have to take meds to get pregnant. But I know stress isn't good for us either and will make things worse. We've even talked about adoption, if the Dr. tells us we can't have children. If not pregnant in 2 months, our Dr. is going to check my tubes and hubbies SC. If all is okay, we'll do 3 more months of Femara. After that, he said we'll have to see as specialist to take it further. I'm not interested in going that far. So, adoption would be our next step. Good luck to you guys and keep us posted!
