A little bit sad...

Last night before I went to bed, I was feeling a little bit sad. I think part of it is friends all around me are pregnant or giving birth. I'm an avid "facebooker" and it seems that Facebook has turned into "Babybook." I'm okay with that too, it's just that it feels that many of my friends have what I want. I know I will get there one day and I'm over it today, it was just weird to feel a little sad- it was sort of hard to explain...to myself and the Hubby- so I didn't.

On a brighter note, I'm on vacation starting on Friday afternoon for a whole week and a day! I'm super pumped about my "staycaction" and looking forward to small day trips and a happy 2nd year anniversary with the hubby! Did you know that your second year anniversary is the "cotton anniversary?" I think that calls for some new boxers or something!

I haven't been very good with eating over the past couple days- maybe that is the link to my sadness? The hubby and I were chatting about eating and I think we're going to try and eat vegetarian for a week and see what happens. Anyone have any good recipes?

Perhaps I can drop the 10 pounds I want to drop in time for a happy anniversary celebration and in time to find a new dress for the upcoming 6 weddings we have before September...OY!


  1. Hi! I can completely understand this sadness. I too was feeling this yesterday. Everyone around me seems to be announcing their pregnancy or are already pregnant. My hubby and I just started trying- only been 1 month but even after one month i begin to think how long will this take. I just want it already. My hubby is great though, reassures me it is way to early to get worried that it won't happen. I know he's right. Stressing out and getting down wont' make it any better. Glad to hear that you are feeling better!!!

  2. I understand too - but honestly, you'll be there so soon - you're young and healthy!! Now the struggle, well at least this was for me, is keeping the sugars on the perfect path while you wait... patiently. Hugs x

  3. I know exactly what you mean. It is hard, very hard. But just believe that at the end of it all you too will be there. Hope you have a good staycation - I am having one of those too next week :)

  4. I'm sorry you're feeling down, I know what you mean about facebook being babybook, those babes are everywhere on FB! But, you're working hard so that whenever the time comes, you'll be a healthy momma, and that's a great gift to your child! I'm keeping all my fingers and toes crossed for you!

    Yikes, 6 weddings?? That's a lot! Good luck with the veggie diet, I don't think I could do it!

  5. I totally get it. I've been there myself. It's not that you aren't very very happy for your friends - it's just that you feel a little bit sad for yourself. I'm so glad you still have the time to plan for a child in your future.

  6. I want to tell you not to feel sad but last year I was right where you are and I felt terribly sad because I found out that I had to postpone pregnancy for a year. I WANTED a baby so bad, we were FINALLY ready in every way. Then out of the blue I found out I had to be on medication for a year that was not good for pregnant women.

    Of course that's when a bunch of friends started trying and even the ones who weren't trying were popping up pregnant. It's very sad to feel like it's your time and yet not be able to move forward.

    So I won't tell you not to be sad because I was sad and I get it. But I will tell you that you have SO MUCH to look forward to and it will happen for you. And think of it this way! When it does happen for you, you'll have tons of lovely ladies who've just been there to go to for advice! :-D


  7. I've been a vegetarian for 12 years. recipes are abundance, just depends on if you want veg recipes that have meat substitutions or veg recipes that are just veg. I make a mean veggie lasagna with the veg ground round. I use it in tacos, veg dumplings and veg shepherds pie. Anywhere you would use ground beef. Not to mention all the great products they have out there now like veg hamburgers and hot dogs.
    Then there are non-veg meat dishes. pick your flavah!

  8. That is a completely natural and extremely annoying feeling. I get it at least once a day. When I open facebook. When I see a Mum-with-pram in the street. When I drive past the baby clothes store. When my sis-in-law SMS's me a happy mothers day message (I'm not a Mum!!!!).

    When my step-kids come round. That one hurts the most I think, cos my hubby already HAS kids. And I/we don't. It stings.

    But you have to focus on the positives. Keep busy, and carry on. We will be going for our first official meeting with the fertility specialists to talk IVF. Scary and exciting. And I can't wait.

    Best wishes to you in your journey to get pregnant! :)

  9. I like the "Mooseweood Cooks At Home" cookbook. The recipes are healthy and delicious and easier to make than the ones in the regular "Moosewood" books.

  10. Thanks everyone for your support...and for the yummy veggie suggestions!

    Lindsay- do you have a blog I can follow?
