Wow - that really sucks. I was lucky I guess that of the two people who have been trying really hard at my work one had her baby in April (IVF) and the other is due 3 weeks afte me. Whew! I think that's sad, though, I have a friend who's trying to adopt and she sends me baby websites and another who finally decided not to have kids and she's helping with my shower. I know it's hard for them and I so appreciate that they're happy for me. It seems like everyone I know is having trouble conceiving, so I feel really, really blessed that this was so easy for us.

Well, as someone who went through years of infertility and more tests, treatments, etc. than I care to remember, I do know it is hard to be around pg women when you feel like it may never happen for you.

That said, it is too bad she has such a negative attitude about it - all that anger and fear and hatred certainly can't be helping her cause, let alone her personal mental or physical health. I must say, I don't think I ever felt that women who conceived easily weren't entitled to their babies, and if there was a pg woman in the workplace who wanted to discuss it, and I didn't/couldn't take it right then, I would just make myself scarce, rather than ruining her enjoyment of her pregnancy. I am sorry that she is robbing you of some of the joy you are experiencing right now, especially with your first baby.
