How to not be THAT person

Posted by: TOS on Thu Oct 18, 2012
Hi all,
I had my first pregnancy which started this past June (2012) and then M/C in late August, I was 11 weeks. What a terrible, horrendous experience, that I now know people can never relate to unless they have been there themselves, or at least been pregnant.

We weren't officially TTC at that time - I had been off B/C for ~4 months, started to track BBT and ready to try soon - I was so happy that it happened easily.

But now, how do we move forward? My cycle is all out of whack it seems, just had 1 really short one followed by now a long one. I guess we will more "officially" TTC in the next few weeks.

Really though, I need to find a way not to be THAT person - feeling like I die inside every time I see someone I know who is pregnant. None of my close friends or family have come out with that sort of news lately, but I work in a moderate-sized company (~2000 employees at my location), and have worked there for many years, so there are a lot of people I know peripherally. Every time I see YET ANOTHER person who is pregnant (or hear that someone's wife is), I just HATE that feeling I get. I want to be happy for them, but I just can't! Instead I feel miserable about myself. And this is just not me - not the type of person I am.

It would be nice to know that I'm not alone...
