I'm just venting here..so please forgive me.


I was talking to a friend (not a close friend) about trying for another baby. Of course after she asked what was taking so long with #2. *sigh* I finally told her that we had a lot of difficulty conceiving our DS and that we infact have been trying for #2 since DH was about 9 months old. We were returning to the fertility doctor.


Her response?


"Well...have you just tried the old fashion way of making babies? Just have a lot of sex."


I could really and truly slapped this woman, if I were a more violent person. SERIOUSLY? Oh thank you "doctor". That's our problem. We just have to have a lot of sex and here I thought the stork just kept getting lost. Honest to goodness.

haha This gave me a good laugh. I can't believe how insensative people are though and I really can't believe how dumb they think we are. I've gotten then, "well are you guys having sex" comment so many times. Like really? Do they think I didn't go to 5th grade health class or something? Idiots! I HATE those, "its not meant to be" comments. It makes no sense to me whatsoever. What's worse in the church is people with the "God just doesn't want you to have a baby" That doesnt make sense either. So you're telling me that God doesn't want me to have a baby, but He DOES want the drug addicts and dead beat dads to have babies? C'mon now. That's just ridiculous

Ahh yes..gotta love the "it's just not meant to be right now!" comments. I hate those as well. How do they know? Don't I get to decide when the time is right to have a baby..just like everyone else?!?!


There is comfort knowing others have to endure these awful comments...even though I wish with all my heart that we didn't have to! It's nice to receive the support here. I wish I found this board a long time ago!

OMG, I would've slapped her! This thread is cracking me up and sad all at the same time that so many of us have to endure these ridiculous comments.

OMG! I had the same thing happen yesterday...with a good friend...who knows what we've gone through!!! She started by saying "wow, why are you so broken out"...um...cause I have to take hormones every month for the past year, not to mention the stress!!! and then says "you guys just need to pretend like you are in high school and go crazy"...oh, you mean we have to have sex to get pregnant!?! Well, jeez, I wish I would've known that easy answer 3 years ago!!!! ARG!
