I think it is great that you have told a couple of friends.
When we went through infertility for a couple of years with my son I did not tell anyone, not my best friend, not my mom. It was a terrible time in my life and I didn't reach out for support. Yes, i have DH but he doesn't totally get how upset I am when the witch shows or when I have to get another invasive proceedure at the RE.
This time I tell people.
With my friends and family I am just open and honest about it. I think it makes me feel better. If i am hiding it I feel like it's something to be ashamed of or something is wrong with me. Also, I am really really sad sometimes and i want them to be understanding.
As for random people who ask me if I am trying, or why we havent had another or dont we want Sawyer to have a sibling. I try make them just as unconfortable as they make me by asking those questions. I start talking about how we are dealing with infertility and how much is costs and so on. Lol
As for people saying something about your age... I can't even imagine someone being such a jerk.
