No, I probably won't say anything b/c it is a waste of my time. I doubt she is thinking at all about what she wrote. I was neighbors with her back in Germany and she knew we were going through IF. She said , and I quote " my husband just looks at me and I get pregnant." Yeah, I knew then and there that it is a futile effort. Thankfully we live on opposite sides of the country now so my contact with her is just some random FB exchanges. I just found her pic insensitive, not only to IF patients but also to mothers unable or choosing not to bf.

I never thought about it in that way, but I could see why you would find it offensive. I do think that more people need to be aware of who their "friends" are before making statements like that, it could be very hurtful to many of her friends. Maybe she doesn't feel like she has enough in her life to feel proud about and that makes her feel good?

Do you think you'll say anything to her about it? It could be a learning experience for her, but it's hard to say if she'll be willing to listen long enough to learn something.
