How Do People Get Pregnant?

on March 14, 2014

Honestly, how?

I was taught that it’s by having sex, but I find that hard to believe, actually, impossible to believe.


How do people get pregnant?

And how the fuck do I get over it?

    Well, considering we’ve been trying to conceive for over a year now (and having no luck at all), I really don’t know!! I’m calling this secondary infertility since we were able to conceive the other three kids just by having sex. 😉

      I assume we’re still primary as sex didn’t get us Elvis! I thought having him would change my reactions to others’ good news. Apparently not!

        It is very hard for me to be happy for others who conceive and don’t miscarry…because I’ve had so many losses (4 is my current count). I, of course, don’t want anyone else to experience what I have, but it’s still hard to be honestly happy. I feel terrible about it but it’s the truth. 😦

      • Persephone says:

        I’m so sorry for your losses, for me it’s similar – just “simply” conceiving hurts. So I have the immediate happy and then a sadness. And no, I don’t wish my 3 years on anyone it’s just so “easy” for others. Even if it isn’t really!

    I wish I knew the answers to any of those questions!!!!! But mostly how to get over it. That would be nice..

      It’s the getting over it that confuses me. I’m not even sure I want a second and surely I should be over all of it because treatment worked? Maybe everyone else should stop getting pregnant 🙂
