A lot of the points remind me why almost no one (IRL) knows about us TTC, fewer still TTCMA. I just couldn't deal with the unsolicited advice or opinions, and, should this not work out for us, I couldn't deal with even the well-intentioned but nevertheless insensitive things people say.

Thanks for sharing.

I poked around this blog a little & she went to the same clinic I am going to now!

My best friend has two beautiful boys and she constantly tells me that her husband sneezes and she's pregnant. I usually just smile and don't make a big deal of it. I didn't realize how much that hurt me until her sister-in-law (another friend of mine) said to me that she's sorry that she says that when I'm around. Once she validated it to me, I realized I felt a little ping in my heart every time she says that.

So many of the things that were said, were said to me. It made me feel better to read this article. Yes those things were hurtful. i usually try to blow them off and not let them get to me.
One of my friends who has 5 kids said to me, "I told my husband we are so lucky we are not in your situation!" How is that insensitive comment supposed to make me feel? I blew that one off too.

I posted this on my facebook. Maybe I can change a few minds about infertility.
