Trying to get pregnant

I am 25…me and my husband got married 5 years ago and now have been trying to get pregnant for the last 3 years.

It’s so hard to see other people with their kids or even pregnant. When my sister got pregnant I couldn't even look at her I was so depressed. Then I felt even worse because I wasn't happy for her.

It just gets worse the older we get as all people seem to want to know is when you are having kids. Sometimes I just don't know what to do all I do is sleep and cry and fake a smile. I just want to be happy.
