Don't Count Your Eggs

Natasha--That is a lot of unfair for one gal to handle! Can you AVOID your husband's ex?! Ugh. I'm sorry. I hope you can find ways to take care of yourself and remember that your time will come. Davy--you're so right in focusing on blessings. I try to do that all day, every day now. I wish I could get paid for each blessing I count :) Sending lots of love to both of you. Thanks for sharing.


I would also like to add that I am a stepmother of a 5 year old old girl. She is very sweet :)

My husbands ex wife just had a baby boy and rubs it in my face at any opportunity. She likes to point out her strong genes and ask me if I am ever going to have children. This makes me angry and obviously I can't really answer back. I think being a stepmother makes it a bit harder for me. Being the "non mother, mother" if that makes sense

Davy @ The Sea of TTC

I can totally relate to your first paragraph; sometimes it is great to be around kids, but other times you just want to run away. I usually can't tell which one it will be until after the fact.

It's so easy to get feel that life isn't fair, because it isn't. In my experience, thinking about who does and doesn't deserve a baby only increases my pain. In those moments, I need to focus on the blessings I have been given, such as uninterrupted time with my husband.


I too am dealing with the successive steps of trying to conceive. I am 34 so I feel that I don't really have time on my side either. To top it off my sister just announced her accidental second pregnancy with her on off boyfriend. I can't tell you how annoyed it makes me when my mother, who now feels sorry for me, and my pregnant sister tell me to just relax!! My medical insurance doesn't cover anything infertility related which just adds salt. It is nice to know you are not alone. Thank you for writing this blog. It means a lot to read other people's experiences.
