85% of couples conceive in the first year, I am not one of them

Brace Yourselves….

This is how I feel going on Facebook this morning. I find out that a girl I used to work with, who has been in a relationship for probably 6 months, doesn’t live with the guy at all…..OMG U GUYZ I’M EXPECTING A BABY BOY…..wat?

One of my friends that I also used to work with, in the same circle of friends as the girl above (I mentioned her near the start of my blog, the friend who was going to try for #2 in August and I wanted to beat her) is being very coy about the fact that she’s pregnant. I know it, everyone knows it, but she refuses to make it official.
COME ON cosmos. Why so many freaking babies? Why people who don’t deserve them at all? People who literally shrugged their shoulders and said yeah why not let’s try and POOF, bountiful womb. People that will never know what it’s like to stab themselves daily with expensive medication with the HOPE not guarantee of a healthy baby. I just…don’t…get it. I can’t process it.

Another one bites the dust. Another friend blocked from my feed indefinitely. Pretty soon there will be no women left. In an attempt to feel smug and better then them, at least I have a house and…gasp… A HUSBAND WITH A GOOD JOB. Doesn’t matter how you slice it, my life is a step above theirs. Only thing missing is the one thing I envy about them. Not fair.

  1. Deleting pregnant people off of my Facebook is one of my favorite past times. I kept the close friends, but if you were an acquaintance and got pregnant… buh bye. Pinterest is sometimes even worse.
    It’s good that you can look at the bright side (husband with a good job), that’s not always the easiest thing to do!

    • I have no distinction between close friend and acquaintance when it comes to facebook baby announcements. If you’re pregnant, you’re going into the abyss. My “close” female friends who are pregnant are all mostly on 2 or 3 so when they aren’t posting about the pregnancy, they’re posting about their kids. I’m not missing anything.
