Is it wrong?

Is it wrong for me to be jealous of other pregnant women/moms? I know my DH and I agreed to start TTC next april, but I just want it to be my turn. Am I being selfish?

  • No, it's normal. It' shard to be patient sometimes. Don't worry, mamma, it will happen for you :)

  • In my opinion I don't feel that it's healthy to be jealous of ANYTHING someone has that you don't. It leaves you unhappy and unsatisfied with the life you have now. For me anyway, when I get focused on what other people have, it's never enough when I do get things.

  • I think it is perfectly normal, I do not think it is jealousy persay, I think it is just that you are anxious because you know you guys are going to be TTC pretty soon so the months may be dragging for you.

  • I used to be disappointed that I was not getting pregnant and after years of TTC, I have my little girl now. Its okay to want it to happen for you and see others and get disappointed. Just pray and everything will play out when its supposed to. Good luck!

  • I think it's really normal... We have been trying for 5 months for our second baby and it sees like EVERYONE I know is now pregnant... A girl I know from high school is on her 4th kid and she doesn't even take care of the first 3.... Breaks my heart...
