I know how you feel. All of my friends have had babies- some even have had their second children, during the two years we have been trying to get pregnant. It is so frustrating. Especially when they sit around and talk about their children, knowing that the fact that you don't have one is so heartbreaking. I have one "friend" that starts alot of her sentences with " Well, when you have kids, you will know that..." blah, blah, blah- as if I didn't feel left out already!
Anyway, I just wanted to let you know that I know how you feel and I feel the same myself alot of times. I try to limit the time I spend with 'friends' like that. I am the only one that can take care of me. Take care of you too.
Hang in there. We will be in the club soon. For now we have this club where we can support each other.

: I got really sad last night. I went to a friend's house for her husband's birthday and there was another couple there who just had a baby. This woman who just had the baby...she is extremely selfish and lazy and gets on everyones' nerves. For example, she came in last night and rather than leaving her sleeping infant in his infant seat..sat by him and put her feet up rather than helping out set up for dinner. She has always expected everyone to wait hand and foot on her and the new baby is just another excuse to be an even bigger princess. ANYHOW..that being said, because she really got on my nerves last night. My good friend is pregnant with #2 and I had to listen to them talk about breast feeding. I don't know, it just made me sad to see them bonding when my pregnant friend and I are so close and we had hoped that her next pregnancy she and I would be going through together. Then, we had to listen to the princess's husband act like he is the expert father now because he has been a father for a whole two months..this guy has nothing but criticism for everyone else and mistakenly seems to think that they are doing a perfect job. I couldn't wait to get out of there last night. Thanks for letting me get this off my chest. I'm actually OK..just a little sad and on edge. Leslie
