An acquaintance just announced that he and his wife are expecting their fourth child. His wife is 38, which is the same age I am.

Okay, fine. They’re not greedy. They’re great parents to the three they have and they’re thrilled about the new one. But sometimes it seems like everyone else in the world is stealing all the damned fertility.

  1. As one of the fertile, I know what you mean and understand…as much as I can. I think of this often as I thank the Goddess for me not being pregnant and think that that is selfish. Why she can’t spread it all around evenly is beyond me. We have very good friends who went thru the in vitro thing too and I was always rubbing her tummy to try to get my Latina-fertility to jump into her. I don’t feel guilty, but I do feel terrible at the same time. *hugs*

  2. A co-worker just announced his third. I was about to tell him we had started the process to adopt our second but I suddenly wasn’t in the mood to share.
