Do tell infertile friends and family:

I agree 100% with this one. In 08, my husband and I experienced a miscarriage with twins (one at 16 weeks and one at 18 weeks) and a few months later we received a baby shower invitation from one of my husbands relatives. We didn't even know she was pregnant. I have to admit, this stabbed me in the heart, not only because she was having a baby, but because her shower was around the same time mine would have been. Please have respect for others around you that have either found out they are infertile or had a miscarriage, it may be hard to find the right words, but they will respect you for caring about their feelings.

Those are my exact words "...stabbed me in the heart..." when my SIL told the family in the same room that she was about 6weeks pregnant! It is very hurtful to hear when I had just miscarried about 2 weeks ago and everyone knew about it. I would have appreciated that she went up to me to tell me privately so that I could absorb it and be excited when she announced the news to the whole family at the same time. I was in so much shock I probably didn't seem as excited at the time that I should have been for her. Please be considerate and think about how others who are experiencing a loss or are infertile are feeling before you break the exciting news....
