Another pain

A woman at work just announced her pregnancy today.  I know I will see this everywhere and it has been obvious to most of us that she was pregnant, but it hurt a little.

What hurt a lot, was the fact that she is due right around the time I would have been due, had my miniscule pregnancy continued. 

So while I was on a gurney, legs up, waiting for the drugs, she was happily getting pregnant by her husband at home.   (She has only been married a few months, so I doubt there is a fertility Dr in her life)

I think that any pregnancy annoucement when you're infertile is like a stab to the heart. But this must be so much worse, given the similar due date. I'm so sorry that you have this constant reminder. *hugs*

Oh, I am sorry. I know it was really hard for me to be around people with what would have been my due date, because I couldn't help seeing where I *would* have been, if I hadn't miscarried.
I wish you didn't have to go through this...

I'm sorry. The happy pregnant seem to be everywhere, don't they?

I can't imagine that there is any way to deal with this situation. I'm so sorry.
