My Ovaries Hate Me

It seems like everyone around me is suddenly pregnant.  My sister (less than a month to go!), my sister-in-law, my cousin, online friends, friends of friends…the list goes on and on.  But there’s one person who isn’t pregnant.  Me.

I try really hard not to let it get to me, but sometimes it does.  I was going along just fine until today.  Today is when I got the news that my cousin is pregnant and even though I was thrilled to hear the news, it somehow hit me in a bad way.

I can’t seem to get it off my mind.  I know that all will happen in God’s time and that I have to be patient, but it is hard to be patient when you really want something.  It is hard to be patient when you see so many people around you that have what you want.

I want Zach to have a little brother or sister to play with.  I want to watch them grow up together.  I want to cuddle with a teeny tiny baby again.  I want Zach to cuddle with that teeny tiny baby. 

I know I’m lucky to have Zach and I am extremely lucky that I had a very easy pregnancy with no scares and no problems whatsoever.  I just wish I knew the magic secret to making it happen again.

Don’t get me wrong, I am very excited for all of the babies that will soon be in my life.  I can’t wait to hold my new nephew next month and to find out whether my sister-in-law will be having a boy or girl later in the year.   I just wish I could be adding another tot to the family as well.

  1. You know, I’ve heard that women who stress out a bunch about getting pregnant actually make it difficult for their body to comply — it makes sense to me, seeing how stress totally affects my body in other ways. Just worth thinking about…relax, take a breath here and there, and then have some sex. ;P

  2. awww sweetie, i hope good things come to you soon. that’s about all i can say for you, but i wish i could do more.

  3. Well, since you already have had one baby, I’m betting there’ll be another one. Like everybody always says, relax!

    Which cousin? I want the same thing for you. I love watching our kids grow up together. Be patient and have lots of sex!

  5. Finally delurking…

    The same thing happened to me last fall. There were five babies born to my best friends and family between September and January. My husband and I have been trying for our first since August and nothing yet. People say it’ll happen when it’s supposed to, but notice that the people that say that aren’t the people that are trying to have a baby.

    We try not to let it consume our lives, but it’s so difficult.

    Anyway, just wanted to let you know I feel your pain.

  6. If you keep thinking about it, it does become elusive, but once you forget even for just a second, it’s bound to happen. Try to take a break from everything. I know what we say can’t count for too much, but it will come.

  7. Everyone says relax, but it is easier said then done.

    Keep trying, making a baby is fun!

  8. I just want to say that I love tanya’s comment about being patient and having lots of sex.

    That sounds like the prescription for not only pregnancy, but a happy life in general.

    P.S. – I would loan you my ovaries for awhile, as long as you promised to give them back when I’m ready to have another kid. Just saying.

    P.P.S. – If you ever need a kidney or anything like that, just let me know. You could totally have that with a no-return policy.

    P.P.S.S. – Am I coming off crazy in the comment? Feels like it. I’m going to stop typing now.

  9. Mine hated me for the longest time! I only got prego when I stopped stressing (easier said than done) and had sex like we did before we were trying. 🙂

  10. My neighbor (suz) took forever to get pregnant… what did the trick was seeing a chiropractor… a special kind that also did some therapy of some kind. She said it released some pent up emotions, she cried for a full day and within two weeks she was pregnant, after a YEAR of trying.
    I’m totally serious, go over to her blog and ask her!

    OR you could do like me and finally decide that one child is enough and you don’t think you really want another one. BAM!!! your preggers.
    Don’t get me wrong, love my little guy a lot but he was sneaky that way.
