How have you told friends and/or family about issues with TTC? Do they know? Do they not know? Do you always get asked "So when are you having children?"

I just tell people that we are working on it as hard as we can, and that we really want to be parents. If they have the nerve to ask what is taking so long, I just be vague and tell them there are some issues. Only really close family/friends know the extent. I'm not ashamed or anything, I just don't think its people's business.

Our friends and some family are very supportive. Our parents are kinda like whatever to it. Which is hurtful because me being the youngest (my brother is 34) will be giving them their first grandchild and they don't seem to care. DF's father actually gave us the money for IVF which was strange because he is very very Catholic.
