"just relax" vent

One positive thing about passing the one-year-ttc-unsuccessfully-mark is at least people stop saying "All you have to do is relax (take a vacation, not think about it, stop stressing about it) and you'll get pregnant."  Does that drive anyone else crazy??  Grrrr!  Sorry, just needed to vent a little.

After over 2 years of TTC, I still run into a few people that tell me to just relax.

I'll join the vent on the "just relax" but it also bugs the crap out of me when someone starts in with a story about their cousin's uncle's roomate's sister who delt with IF and turned out three beautiful kids! People try so hard to relate to you that they loose sight of the fact that sometimes the best support comes in the unspoken hug.

My favorite is the "why don't they just give you those fertility drugs like J.Lo, that always works."

I must agree just relax and quit trying are not what we want to hear and are not going to make a BFP happen.

I am pretty new at this compared to some of you (and I wish you all the best of luck!!!)... and even I got very sick and tired of hearing the "just relax" BS pretty quickly.

Yep, I "used to hear" this all the time.
