Ok yes I am very jealous.......

Most of my friends are pregnant. For some reason I can't get pregnant because my husband is taking an antidepressant that is making him produce less seamen. I have been trying to adopts for 4 years now and I just feel as though i am not deserving. Am I not allowed to have any more children? UGH yes I am jealous. I just want another child and everything is against us.

  • (((((HUGS))))) to you. I completely understand what you are going through. It took us over five years to get our first son and it was literally all we could think about. I recommend keeping a journal about your thoughts and feelings. Also, though I KNOW how difficult it is, try to just let go and enjoy your life. I found that the more I stressed about having a baby, the less successful we were. When I finally decided to give it a break, it happened. I don't know if it's "Murphy's Law" or if the stress actually prevents you from getting pregnant, but maybe some relaxation like yoga or Tai Chi could be helpful for you?? Good luck. I hope it happens and that it is the perfect time for you and your husband when it does!

  • So sorry...I had a friend whom her and her husband tried for about 5 years to get preganant-they tried all the procedures. They had no luck and she came in on day and said that they were not going to try anymore...then, about 4 months later she became pregnnant and are the proud parent of a beautiful baby girl. Good luck!

  • Everything happens for a reason, if it isn't happening now then your baby isn't ready for you yet (whether you get pregnant, or adopt). Take a deep breathe and relax, when it's meant to happen it will, and no amount of stressing will make it happen quicker. Although doctors will tell you that the more stress you are under the less likely it is for you to conceive. Find enjoyment in other things, and let go of the stress you have for another child...Good Luck & Blessed Be.

  • Just be thankful you have one child. Many women can't even have that.
