Thread: Why me again?

    Default Why me again?

    I don't really know where to begin with typing this post and nobody needs to reply - I've just got to get these thoughts out somewhere.

    I just feel so very sad. I feel like PG is the hardest thing in the world for me to achieve successfully. Why does it have to be this hard? Why did it have to happen to me a third time? And why at Christmas time? This is meant to be a time of joy and celebration and all about family. There I was thinking that our family was about to grow and how exciting Christmas Day would be with that in mind and now all I can think about is how awful this time is. Now I feel like there is 'one less' in the family than I thought there would be tomorrow.

    I feel so out of control ATM as I sit here knowing that it's just a matter of time before AF arrives and I pray that it's sooner rather than later so that I can start moving forward a bit, if that's at all possible. My stupid stupid body......I just hope it gets on with it sooner rather than later so that I can deal with the physical/emotional aspects that this AF will bring.

    Where to from here? Is it worth TTC again if this is going to happen to me yet again? I can't live in fear 24/7 of losing more babies. So do we keep trying or forget the whole idea? I desperately want another baby to complete our family and for Jacob to be a big brother.

    I feel so stupid. Why did I test when I did? Well I know the answer to that, it's because I felt symptomatic. I just wish I didn't, then I'd be none the wiser and would just think that I'm having a long cycle (as I've had a few over the past year that are around 33 days). And then I just would have gone on to TTC next month.

    Why is it so easy for some other people to fall PG, even when they haven't taken optimal care of themselves? Here's me doing my best to look after myself and whammo, it strikes me again. What is it that I'm doing wrong? Do I not deserve another child? Doesn't Jacob deserve a little brother or sister?

    Melinda - I'm sorry I know it seems sometimes like the world is ganging up on you - and its not the case.
    You deserve good things - so do lots of people. It may seem like others have it easy sometimes, but just remember there's good with bad for everyone. Some people might fall pregnant easily, but then there could be negatives for them around the corner.

    You will have another baby, sooner rather than later, and it will be a happy joyous time for you. Try not to dwell on this tomorrow. Enjoy the special time with your lovely family.

    Hugs to you.

    ITS JUST NOT FAIR! I am so sorry mel, and ditto to what everyone else has said, of course you deserve this. But I too know how you feel and it is very hard to even contemplating getting back on the wagon when you are going through this. And what a lousy time I know there isn't much I can say to console you but I want you to know I offer my thoughts.

    Thinking of you.

    Melinda I just want to give you a big hug!!!!

    I am so sorry for your loss.
    You do deserve to have another baby. Dont give up. We are all here for you.

    I agree with Fi. Everyone has issues. So just becasue other people fall preggy easily they still have things to deal with.

    try not to think about the fear ( easier said than done) To go though that emotion is worth the true joy you will have when you do have your long awaited bub.

    Try and relax and enjoy christmas with your family.

    Melinda i am so sorry

    You deserve to be happy and one day you will have a baby brother or sister for Jacob to love and play with.

    Please don't give up i know it is hard knowing it could happen again but it may not.

    Part of me so wants to give up as well but i know in my heart i want more kids and i have to take the pain with that knowing i could go on and have another m/c.

    Love to you all

    Melinda, I am terribly sorry that this is happening to you again and at a terible time of year as well. You definetely deserve another baby and Jacob certainly deserves a little brother or sister. If I could I`d take away your pain but that`s impossible so please take peace in knowing I`m thinking of you and sending my love.

    NO WAY.

    Bugger it all Mel, I'm so sorry. The timing couldn't be worse either.
    It will happen for you, I know it.

    It's not over yet, stop kicking yourself over testing early.

    Melinda you are so nice and you do deserve better. Sux that it happened at xmas time, life is so cruel sometimes. I am so sorry for your loss and I feel your pain. Sending you truck loads of kisses and hugs, but I know that nothing I say or do will make you feel any better, unfortunately it is just time. I just know you will be a mother again and Jacob will be a big brother real soon.

    Thinking of you, hope you feel a little better real soon.

    Mel ~ I don't know what to say, other than I hope that AF passes quickly for you, so that you can get on with TTC for Dec/Jan.

    I know (that you say it was "just" a chemical pg) but it was still the start of something great, and that's upsetting. I know that this sadness with pass as the bleeding eases.

    Please stay strong and know that one day very soon you will be pregnant and all will be fantastic!

    I don't know why we have to endure this, I know exactly what you mean: I look over my back fence to the single woman nextdoor who has 6 healthy children and here I am trying and praying for #2. Sometimes life just doesn't seem fair darl.

    Keep posting, and I hope you're feeling better soon.
