It's funny...

what news hurts and what I'm able to fluff over, and not let bother me. And not in that 'har har' way, either.

Take today for instance. I found out that an internet acquaintence of mine had a successful IVF, and is now due wahtever-9-months-from-now is. Yay! Diva's knocked up! Sweet! While reading the thread though, I saw that one of the other girls who got married on the same day I did, way back 4 years ago, has a 15-month old now. So they would've gotten pg somewhere around their (our!) 2nd anniversary, and here we sit, still benched. Any elation I was feeling from finding out about diva's pregnancy was pretty much dashed half-way down the page when I saw the news about the 15-month-old. And it's not that I'm not HAPPY for the parents & beautiful little girl (ok, I went stalking a little bit...), but ugh. Just Ugh.

I'm waiting right now to find out if another friend's IVF cycle was a success... I really really hope it was. If it's not, I honestly fear a little for her mental & emotional health :( Effing infertility.

  1. Yup, it's the "I'm happy but it still sucks" phenomenon - and to be honest, I think it's okay when you're just not happy about someone's pregnancy. We're human, we have feelings. JK and I had a long conversation about this today, actually.

    :( Big hugs.
