I have a coworker who just got married at the end of November. 2 weeks later, she found out she was accidentally pregnant. She and her husband had been trying Natural Family Planning to prevent pregnancy, and it didn’t quite work out.

Needless to say, I was pretty unhappy, upset, and jealous. I’ve been outwardly positive and accomodating to her of course, because this is a very happy time for her and regardless of my jealousy she doesn’t need that negative energy surrounding her.

Well, she came in to work this morning and told me she thinks she might be having a miscarriage. She began bleeding heavily this weekend, went to the ER, and they diagnosed her with a “threatened miscarriage”. She said she bleeding has slowed down since then and she has not passed any tissue. I’m not 100% sure she is having a miscarriage, but she’s going to the doctor today to be sure.

I feel horrible now for being so jealous. I never ever want this for anyone, regardless of how unfair I think it may be, or how jealous I may feel. *sighs* I just hope and pray that everything’s OK with her and her little one. She’s about 13 weeks now, I think.

    {{HUGS}} You and your co-worker will be in my thoughts. If it makes you feel any better we found out my cousin was preggo back in October I got soooo jealous and upset for a moment I almost wanted to hide under a rock (on top of it AF was here the day of the pg announcement)! Thankfully all is well. *knocks wood* Just know you're not alone!

  2. I have felt that exact same way before. I was a member of a little group/club of women on a TTC board and every time one of them would get pregnant I would get so JEALOUS and depressed. Well, three times girls came back to the board because of miscarriages. It makes you feel awful. You don't wish that on anyone. :( Your time is coming soon though. It just is.
