"Why I oughtta..."

...slap you. Or bite you, or kick you, or (insert violence here) you.
We all have heard it before. We all know about how utterly annoying and painful it is to hear those "words of encouragement" by the non-infertiles out there.
This might be painful...we all hate the "It will happen to you I just know it."
"What's meant to be will be."
"Just relax, it will happen."
"You're still young." (I personally hate that one)
"Everything happens for a reason."
"Just forget about it." (yeah right lady. You pop 13 pills a day and let me know if you can forget about it.)
Anyway, I was hit with some new one's recently which I thought I'd address.
1) No. You telling me how expensive your kids child care costs does NOT make me feel better about not being able to get pregnant.
2) No. I do not want to hear that it took your friend's friend 10 months to get pregnant if she still was able to do so naturally. If she's not having night sweats, hot flashes, mood swings, having to re-arrange her schedule for RE appointments and if she's not broke, don't compare her to me.
3) Lastly was something that happened today. A part of my job as a manager is sales. So there I was today doing my do-diligence and making some phone calls to prospects. While on the phone with one, she decided to throw in there, "I'm six weeks pregnant." Well I ended that call with a "congratulations" and a middle finger to the phone.
My final plea..."LH surge where are you? Come to me!"

Hi I just started reading your blog and I totally agree with you, it's like you read my mind!!! I really don't need to hear the "BS" that the fertile love to offer and in my part of the world (the caribbean) people love to ask "so how come no kids yet??? Is something wrong with you???" I just want to scream when I am told to stop obsessing and it will happen!!! So I take a deep breath, I smile and harness my inner bitch to respond :)
