After my husband and I had been trying for a baby for a while, everything about life became tougher. It felt that everything in my life was out of control.
Life wasn’t good. I wasn’t getting what I wanted. I wasn’t getting the baby I desperately craved.
I became jealous, introverted, anxious, miserable, frustrated.
Jealous of all our friends, colleagues and even celebrities who were announcing their pregnancies every 5 minutes. I started choosing to stay in and avoid certain friends or social events where there was going to be talk of pregnancies or babies. I started worrying. About everything. Miserable that I was childless and frustrated that whatever we did, however hard we tried (no drinking, sex at the right times etc) we just weren’t getting pregnant.
