Now that some of my closest friends have had their first babies and some are approaching their first birthdays, I wonder when I’ll hear about baby #2. Because these friends know about my struggles with TTC I wonder if they will be resistant to tell me. I hope not. I think I would feel worse knowing that they felt they couldn’t share their happiness with me. I was reading Infertilegirl (see blogroll below) and she had a great way of putting it:
Pregnancy announcements are so complicated with infertility. It is hard communicate with people that you want to know when they are pregnant, and you are happy they are pregnant. However, it also brings up some really sad feelings about ourselves. We still are not pregnant, and we long for the day when we get to announce the pregnancy.
