    Coping with announcements

    Does anyone else ever feel like itís SO easy for other people to get pregnant with a girl ? (Or boy if thatís your dg)

    Why do women I know seem to get their girl but me.. Iím waiting, worrying .. where is she and will she ever be ?

    My best friend is pregnant, 2 weeks behind me and sheís just found out gender. She really wanted a girl ( itís her first baby) and yep, itís a girl. As easy as that.

    I know I sound so bitter, I am happy for her ... but itís times like this it just brings my GD to the surface and I have to vent. Bluerghhhh.

    This is exactly how I feel about a boy. People even have the statistics to show that -- higher conception rate of boys, higher birth rate of boys, higher statistics of having a boy after having had a girl and such, etc. All of my family members smoke and are fat and unhealthy and have all boys. Everyone in DH's family have a pigeon pair.

    And here I am with an army of dead male embryos behind me.

    We even know we get 50/50 ourselves from IVF, but our XYs keep being abnormal (and I only started having losses after swaying for a boy).

    I'm just bitter at this point of anyone getting what they want. THAT sticks with me even beyond gender, that something I did in this life or a former or whatever (I don't really buy past lives, fyi, more saying that facetiously) has resulted in me literally never getting what I want.

    DD 2019 (sway opposite )

    Dec. 2017: IVF Cycle #1 - 16 > 9 > 2 blasts: 1 normal XX, 1 abnormal XY
    Feb. 2018: IVF Cycle #2 - 17 > 8 > 4 blasts: 1 normal XX, 1 abnormal XX, 2 abnormal XY
    Took a leap of faith and transferred two XYs: Chemical

    No rainbows. Just an unending storm.
