I am pathetic

I'm hiding in my office while all of my coworkers laugh and coo at my one of my other coworker's new baby.

He was born on Saturday.

I can't do it. I can't put on a happy face and go up there, not today. I'm sure my absence will be noted, this office isn't that big.

Why the hell do all fertile people think everyone wants to see their kids?

You're not pathetic. I did the same thing last summer when my co-worker brought in her baby.

Dont beat yourself up! I skipped a dear friend's baby shower, beacuse I had just found out my eggs suck! I couldn't deal with all of that!

I don't think it's pathetic. I'm the same way. I do think it's kinda strange that they decided to bring the baby into the office that little, but maybe that's just me....

Fresh babies are torture. Sheer torture. I would hide too.

I just found your blog while looking up information on prometrium and clomid...your story is exactly what I am going through...we have started the meds in hopes that we will get pregnant...just know you're not alone!

You are NOT pathetic! You are doing what you need to do to get through the day - we ALL do the same thing. Thankfully I work with older people - none of childbearing age, but if I did...I think I would have to call in sick the day "x" brings in their new baby.

Do what you need to do for yourself and DON'T FEEL BAD ABOUT IT!

Many hugs hon!

You are not pathetic. Someone that used to work with me brings her baby by EVERY month and I hide EVERY time. I don't care. I have even sent stuff by messenger( as in foisted work on other employees)to keep away.

Plus she named her kid after AN X-MAN. I cannot stand it. How awful.

Logan is an ok name,but " This is Logan we named him after Wolverine" makes me want to drink Drano to avoid thinking about who can and cannot get pregnant.
