Is it just me, or is EVERYONE pregnant right now!? It seems like every day I hear some new friend or co-worker announce their expectancy. And as much as I want to be purely happy for them, I have to admit that I am jealous. I lost a baby in 2010 after carrying for almost 5 months. Ever since I have had what feels comparable to "empty nest" syndrome. I know I am still young and that this is ridiculous. It's not like I'm running out of time. But ever since then I have felt like something is missing in my life, and that feeling gets stronger and more devastating with each friend that announces she is pregnant. I have always known that I wanted a family and children. I was so incredibly happy when I found out I was carrying, even if it was at an inconvenient time in my life. I know some of you know what it's like to have that happiness ripped from you in this way. Is what I am feeling typical? And will it go away with time, or not until we try again?
