Serious baby bump envy

Wednesday, July 25, 2012

This is one of the first things that I saw this morning as I turned on the TV to watch the morning news...

In case you want to torture yourself with more... click here for source.

What a lovely wake up call for someone who can't seem to stay (or now get) pregnant.

I know this is a crazy infertile rant, but if I can't do that here then where can I do it?  How is it that a stick figure model, who I am sure starves herself regularly, able to pop out kids so freaking easily?!  My psychologist was yelling at me for eating fat free yogurt, drinking fat free milk, and running a modest 15-20 miles a week.  WTF?  Also, how unfair is it that she still has a model figure even while pregnant?  Just that tiny little baby bump.  Doesn't she crave some ice cream, chocolate cake, or chips?  Why couldn't I have gotten her genes instead of mine? 

Ugh.  I am so incredibly ridiculously jealous.  There I said it.   End of rant.  Have a lovely day everyone!

  1. One thing that comforts me is that EVERYONE has problems. Ours may be getting and staying pregnant, but theirs is something else. NO ONE's life is perfect. I promise. Everyone has issues. Repeating that to myself daily helped me deal with my jealousy.

    It's also so hard to want something and really have no control over it.

    BIG HUG!

    1. In a yoga workshop I was in the teacher said "Don't concern yourself with the person on the mat next to you that is doing this challenging pose with ease, they have other porblems that you don't want" I almost cried out "yeah, this pose is actually easy for me but you do NOT want my problems" we all have our burdens.

  2. Rant away. You're entitled to it!

  3. You're welcome to rant here, I think we all relate and feel relief when we hear it! I totally know how you feel. the other day I told my husband, everyone is pregnant, even party hardy snooki. wtf. :P

    1. OMG when I found out about Snooki I has just had my 3rd miscarriage. Talk about devastating. Someone who binge drinks and smokes gets knocked up like it's nothing! WTF?!

  4. You are more than welcome to rant here. I just saw 7, SEVEN, babies outside the dentist office waiting for Cloudy to pick me up. Consolation prize? No cavities. I got in the car and broke down.

    1. Uuuugggghhh. Glag you have no cavities, but all those babies? Why is that? I feel like I am constantly faced with happy pregnant people or people with cute little babies. Yesterday on the train a very fit and happy looking pregnant woman sat next to me. Rubbing her belly, of course. I was praying that her pregnantness would some how rub off on me.

  5. Rant to your heart's content, lovely. When I get going I hate absolutely everyone so this is, by comparison, just a tiny, charming pout.

    I would be ecstatic to have her body even if that were just a gut. THRILLED I would be.

    I'm suuuure it helps celebrities with IF problems relax to have an endless bottomless pit of money to deal with their IF problems.

    But yeah, the ones that clearly - CLEARLY let's not kid ourselves - starve themselves get me in particular.

  6. Baby bumps are EVERYWHERE I TURN! It seems like the media is OBSESSED with bump-watch. So annoying.

  7. I hate the bump watch. I would give anything for a bump, not the fat I have added because I comforted myself with crap on my worse days. We don't have an endless supply of money to make a bump. I just finished my Ed.S. degree last night and we had more bumps (whether planned or accidental). In fact, according to the university's cohort director our group set the record for the most babies. I turned to the three of us who didn't have a bump at some point and shrugged my shoulders. Rant away- sorry I ranted here.
