Feeling really down today. A friend has just told me she's now trying for a baby and getting all excited. I feel like an awful friend because I'm upset she'll get pregnant when I'm struggling to conceive myself! Xx

I think the fact that you're concerned about this shows what a good friend you are and what lovely heart you have. And since you're such a good friend, think of what you would say to your bestie if they were in your situation, those words are always much kinder (and truer!) than our own internal dialogue! I hope tomorrow is better 😊

It took my friend 2 years to conceive, her best friend got pregnant and was dreading telling her and just like that, she fell pregnant! So they both had babies 6 weeks apart!! It will happen when the time is right for you guys xxx

I completely understand your pain - 6 of my good friends had babies the year I had surgery for endometriosis and was told it was unlikely I'd conceive. I couldn't bear to be around them and felt like a truly awful friend but they understood. Thankfully 4 years on we have been blessed with 2 gorgeous boys. You can't help how you feel it's a perfectly normal reaction.

True. I should be used to this by now especially as I know it's going to be more difficult for me and my husband x

Aww sorry you are feeling down. I know it's easy to say but try not to worry about TTC, not good to get stressed over it. Remember, you are doing all the right things, keeping fit, nourishing your body and I am sure you have no need to worry. Xx
