One of the things that makes infertility so hard is that there are so many complicated feelings. I have friends and family who are announcing their pregnancies, sharing ultrasound pictures, and giving birth. I am happy for them. Truly. I care about them and want to share in their joy.
But then there's the jealousy. Why can't that be me? When will we have a chance to make a big announcement? The realization that this process will take us much longer brings on a wave of sadness. And a good dose of guilt for feeling jealous.
