How To Be Happy For Those Who Can Conceive

It can be difficult to look past your own emotions.

Jealousy is About You
2. Jealousy is About You

“In many ways, it is easier to feel envy and direct your difficult feelings outward than to look inward and acknowledge sadness. Jealousy is less about your friend or family member’s pregnancy, and more about your own grief over infertility” I am still working through this emotion. Even though my husband and I have our daughter and I love her with all of my heart, I didn’t get to experience carrying her for nine months. I didn’t get to experience childbirth or be there for her birth. But I am a mom now and in end, the other stuff doesn’t matter.
