  • I think it's normal when you are wanting to get pregnant and are having trouble and some one else gets pregnant, especially when they didn't plan it or really want to be pregnant to feel mad, upset, jealous, just about any which way.

  • well to put it bluntly, you're jealous. try to turn that negative energy into positive and help her get the nursery ready and go shopping, etc.

  • I feel the same way. On both my fiance and my side of the family we have pregnancies. I'm jealous because I want another baby so badly. When I sat down and had a conversation with my fiance we sat down and decided that right now we have too much going on for us to get pregnant again right now. He is right but I still cant help but to be jealous of them.

  • I've never been able to get pregnant (our children were adopted) and back when we were trying, I used to have the same mixed feelings every time someone I knew announced they were pregnant. of course, you're glad for them but, of course, you're unhappy and sad that it isn't you. Just be happy for them when they're around you and be sad for yourself when you're alone.
