Am I the Only One Who Feels Like This?

I wasn't ttc but there was a good chance that I was pregnant. I also wasn't sure if I wanted a baby right now but if I had have been I would have been overjoyed and obviously kept it. But my period started last night and I feel so upset. I had a miscarriage in dec and I feel almost as bad as I did then. But then I keep telling myself that I wasn't pregnant in the first place so i'm not entitled to those feelings but I just can't help it. I just keep thinking about how amazing it would have been to have a baby of my own. And to make it worse I have to live with my cousin who's 6 months gone, so there's always a constant reminder. Am I being stupid and unreasonable? Crying or Very sad

I imagine you are far from the only one who feels this way. I do not because I have been blessed with two beautiful girls and I have my first boy on the way. I do remember a couple of years ago taking a pregnancy test, it showed up negative and even though I was not in any way ready for another child I was very disapointed inside. Maybe you should talk with your partner about trying to concieve. Are you really ready for a person to take care of?
