I was having my second child when I noticed my sister-in-law acting ill at ease around me and avoiding me. She had had several miscarriages and finally was told there would be no babies. When she avoided me altogether and didn't attend functions I was at or any functions to do with the baby, I understood. It was a terrible time for her.
You feelings are not unusual and to pretend they don't exist would be a lie to yourself. It's a grieving period you need to go through. I don't know the seriousness of your condition, but many of us have children. Have you been told there will never be the hope, or is it just your thoughts.
In the end, quite later in life, my sister-in-law and bro wound up having two boys of their own. Everything is in due time.
There is a rhyme and reason for everything in life. Do you think I wanted this? I still cry at moments, but its here, its me and I will live my life to the best with this. There are reasons for everything.
The best is finding this site. The friends, information and caring given here can't be compared.
I hope I've helped a little, and if you need to yell, than yell......we're here........we'll listen.
It is what it is...........

it is perfectly normal that you're feeling sad because of this, cause it brings things you've lost to your mind. Maybe after a while, after going trough all this, you can joy with them. Don't put your feelings away. It's important to grieve.

I know exactly how you feel. I too haven't been able to have kids and 6 of my very close friends and relatives have told me that they are expecting. It's hard I know but just remember that all things happen for a reason!

What your feeling is perfectly normal and it's OK for you to be feeling this way. Take this time for yourself your not being selfish. Talk with your dr's. They may still be hope. Also, there is always the option of adoption. Keep you faith!
