I think I am putting this in the right place.

Its so hard getting on here sometimes. I see so many of you pregnant ladies and it kills me. I wanted to have at least one more child but we cant, I hate it. I find myself feeling inadequate even though I have one son. For those of you that have felt this way too how do you deal with it?

:( it does have to be hard getting on BG and seeing all the pregnant woman...I was told I would never get pregnant without the help of fertility drugs...My OB even told me she knew of some great adoption agencies...I was absolutely I kind of think of this baby as my miracle baby...have you ever thought of adoption? I mean, if you REALLY want a baby that could consider it, ya know?

My SO and myself want more kids, we've always wanted 4-5, but, we have 2 beautiful girls. I got too sick with both pregnancies so we decided it's best just to end it there. He got a vasectomy to be safe, I can't take BC.
I deal with it by thinking positive thoughts, I have 2 girls don't I? It's just more love to go to them.
There's a lot of women who can't even have one, who am I to complain?

Cheer up :D

I can kinda relate. I have three children and it's too dangerous for me to have anymore since I had c-sections and almost suffered a rupture with my last. I always wanted a big family and it makes me sad to know I can't have that. When our youngest is older we plan on adopting 2 more giving us a grand total of 5 monsters!
