My hubby and I have been TTC our second child for 10 months now, and nothing. Ever since we have been trying, it seems like every person I know is getting preggo. I actually just found out that my hubby's cousin is preggo with her second ( her first one is my daughters age). When I found out, I wasn't even excited for her, just jealous and even a bit angry feeling, ( I know that is aweful), but I just cant help feeling that way.

Is it normal to feel like this?

  • Absolutely, the feeling will eventually pass

  • Absolutelt not, how greedy

  • yes, and I've felt this way while TTC

  • other... please explain

    I wanna have another already too. It does seem like everyone else around is prego. Who's pregnant?
    And don't worry, you'll get preggo soon! It'll be when you aren't even trying. :)
    And in the mean time, you can babysit Joel whenever you like! lol

    Stop trying so hard and don't think about it when you have sex and you'll have better luck conceiving.

    Yes it's normal and I've been there in a few different ways. I felt similar after my miscarriage... upset and jealous of other pregnant women... it went away when I conceived my oldest son 5 months after my miscarriage.

    And then when I was ttc baby # 2 it took us 21 months and I felt that way all over again.

    Good luck and I hope it happens for you very soon!

    I haven't felt this way while ttc, but when I found out I was pregnant with my first it seemed like everyone I knew suddenly was pregnant too. I hated it, they were all stealing my thunder, lol. It's normal for you to feel this way, but I am wishing you good luck.

    I did! I had just lost my baby and had to have a DNC-my nurse was pregnant and I wanted to kill her for going on about being tired and pregnant! I hated all pregnant women!

    I've never experienced anger or jealousy from other people's pregnancies, but if I was myself having trouble conceiving, I'm sure I would find it upsetting. I think the more you focus on actually getting pregnant, the harder it becomes! Just try and relax and have seems to happen easier to people who aren't "planning" it imo.

    It's hard and it is NORMAL to feel that way, but it'll pass.
    You'll feel like screaming and throwing a tantrum sometimes, but once that is done and over with you can be happy for people.
    That doesn't mean the next pregnancy ya hear about won't induce another But that'll pass too!
    After you've been trying a year - see your doctor. Maybe he/she can help.
    Blessings and good luck!
