Hi All, 


This one was too good I just could not resist posting it.  I have been visiting this board for longer than I would like to think about and have undergone 4 rounds of IVF, 2 IUI's, and countless other disappointing milestones.  We all are familiar with the insensitivities that people have towards infertility but this one was an award winner...


DH and I are getting ready for work this morning when the phone rings with the daily call from my MIL.  She proceeds to tell DH that everyone else has a grandchild and that she, and I quote, "wants a baaaaaaaaby!!!!!!".   She said it in the most unbelievably whiny voice you can imagine, probably amplified by the fact that she was on speaker phone in our bathroom.


I could not believe it!!!!


This happened in the same week that my best friend, who incidentially started "trying" for baby#1 at the same time as me, announced that she had a little "whoops" and just found out that she is pregnant with baby #2 even though they were not planning it and were not really ready for another child.


What a joke!!!  Just thought I'd share. Sorry for the rant : )

OMG... I am sorry that is what you had to hear 1st thing in the morning let alone if it was at anytime of the day. I sure hope you or DH said something. How insensitive. I too have a MIL that is not sensitive to others feelings let alone the thought of us having to do infertility treatments. If they only know the feeling we feel having to go through this in the first place.
