The very day that Prince William and Kate announce their baby news, I am greeted with the start of my 29th cycle since first trying to conceive.
Why am I so very affected by others and their baby news? Why does it make me feel so- so very low?
I mean I can understand being affected by a friend or acquaintance who shares their happy news but Prince William and Kate? Really? Oh I feel pathetic at times like these…
Prince William and Kate are worlds away from me and never in a million years would I ever have the chance to meet them, and yet their baby announcement feels like a swift kick in the gut.
How do I overcome these waves of depression and nausea at the mere inkling of a baby announcement? When will I ever be able to swoon in glee with the news and feel happy and excited for the expecting couple like I used to.. like the old me would have felt. When?
I know the answer, and it doesn’t make me feel any better at the moment. I will feel better when I have my own baby announcement to share…but in the meantime coping with these baby announcements is not getting any easier, in fact, it just continues to get harder.
Cycle day one… beautiful Kate announcing her wonderful news… and another Christmas for me with no baby announcement of my own.
Ugggg….Pity party for one please.
