Someone, please tell me why is it that when you are infertile, EVERYONE else becomes a doctor?
If I could make a list of the stupid, thoughtless things that people have said in the last few months, it would take me a year.
I also enjoy hearing stories of people who already have kids (without any infertility meds), have been trying for a month, and “feel my pain”. As in, they got their period after breast feeding for 2 years and it is just so unfair.
I am not saying that other people are not welcome to their own pain. I am just saying, if you are holding a baby and telling me that you are suffering after one month of trying to conceive, you are probably making me feel stabby. Fair or not.
Next post: why it is not okay to say things like, “Why aren’t you pregnant yet?”
