1. Who has been the most supportive person IRL of your journey (besides your SO)? How have they helped you?
There are very few people who even know about our infertility...my sisters are always there for me and although I tend to not talk about it, I have emailed them (writing it is easier than speaking it) and they would do whatever they could to help me. However, I have to say that the most helpful person, is also a very unlikely one, but it is my manager at work. He and his wife made the choice to not have children and we have talked extensively about their decision and how it's affected their life and what it's like to live a life without children. When I was in my worst frame of mind during TTC, he was able to put alot into perspective for me. So although I want a child, I now realize that i can't let it control my life like it had for so long. I am very grateful to him.

2. Who has been the least supportive & why?
I haven't told anyone that I would think wouldn't support me. Not to mention, if someone chose to not support me they would probably no longer be part of my life. I don't deal with people like that.

Not counting my mom, it would be my best friend Jessica. She's known about our journey even longer than my mom has and has always 10000% been supportive. She remembers when we are cycling and knows if I am extra ****** its due to the drugs and stuff, and she's never ONCE told me that I need to just relax, lol

2. Who has been the least supportive & why? Probably anyone other than my mom or my best friend....everyone else tells us to just relax, and what is meant to be will be, and that we're rediculous to even contemplate spending thousands of dollars to have a child.

Most Supportive (besides DH-who was THE most supportive and was totally amazing): Probably my bff Jill. We were both trying to get pregnant at the same time and she was having problems also. It helped to have someone else going through a similar situation at the same time.

Least supportive: Probably another friend of mine who kind of got the "glazed/glassy eye" look whenever I talked about m/a (which wasn't that often either).

My mom has definitely been the most supportive beyond my husband, David. She's been with me every step of the way, listening, helping, supporting, pushing me be and stay healthy throughout the entire roller coaster.

I don't know who would be least supportive... no one really. Everyone wants to help and if they don't, I just don't talk to them about it.
