I always wanted two girls, and now I have two girls. My family is done. So why am I jealous of my pregnant friends?
I scroll through facebook and see a pregnancy announcement, I congratulate my friend, but I can’t help that feeling. I start thinking about how I’m never going to experience the joy of a positive pregnancy test again, of seeing the baby on the scan for the first time, feeling that first kick (or was it wind?), meeting my baby for the very first time, bonding with the baby and proudly ticking off those milestones. I’m jealous of my pregnant friends.
I have awful pregnancies, I get so sick and even suffered with gestational diabetes last time around. I’m relieved I don’t have to go through that again. I’m sure it would be even harder if I was to do it again as I would be that much older. So why am I jealous of my pregnant friends?
A third baby would be a financial nightmare. We would need a bigger house, a bigger car. We tend to tackle one child each in the mornings, at bedtimes and even on days out, we couldn’t cope with three. So why am I jealous of my pregnant friends?
I’m really struggling to adjust to two, so three would be a nightmare, wouldn’t it? It would be constant, non stop, but it would also be SO much fun. I’m jealous of my pregnant friends.
