I read this really great book I found at our church library, it was so good that I couldn't stop reading it. It is of course about infertility, it was a compilation of stories from couples TTC. But what was most helpful was the helpful hints.
-Don't take everything others say to heart. People will say the most awful, stupid, hurtful things. Expect it, and remember: they (like all of us) are doing the best they can.
-Find support. Your family and friends are important, but they can't replace the value of sharing with other couples who are facing the same fight against infertility. Seek out support groups in your church, community, and on the Internet (I am so glad that I have my JM ladies to help me ).
-Don't let life pass you by while you are waiting to become a parent. It would be better to cancel plans at the last minute than to let opportunities to enjoy your life and your spouse slip away while you wait.
-Laugh when you want to laugh and cry when you want to cry.
-Be selective when telling others about your infertility. Many of us have lived to regret making our struggles common knowledge among family and friends (wish I would have thought about that sooner).
-Remember, this is not a sprint, but a marathon.
-Unless someone has experienced or is experiencing infertility, don't pay attention to their cliches or simple answers.
Hoping I didn't step on any toes or make anyone uncomfortable. If I have I am so sorry, that isn't my intention. The book was just so great, I was so excited after reading it, and couldn't wait to share with you.

All those things you said are so true..I used to say that if one of my friends says to me one more time "but at least you have fun trying!" I'm going to knock her block off.....but then I realized she is just not sure what to say.
