Worst comment ever...
Tue, 11-23-2010 - 10:15am

I swore I had heard them all -

"You must be rich not having kids"

"You're lucky you can go on vacation someplace besides Disney World"

etc, etc, etc!

But here's the worst (please let me know if you have a more terrible comment and I will send you lots of virtual hugs):

(complaining friend) "I got pregnant so much sooner than I wanted to"

By far, my most favorite comment is " My husband just looks at me and I get pregnant"...I actually had someone say that to me AFTER we had discussed my IF issues. Yeah, she's not a friend:p

Oh I LOVE those comments. My favorite ones are now the holiday related ones. "Oh Christmas must be so nice for you." Or "You must save so much money" or "You don't understand why I go Black Friday shopping I have kids". Like somehow all of these things are mutually exclusive. I have decided to just stay silent when these people talk.

Oh and by the way I love the Disney comment. I am 24 and my DH is 31 and we are part of the Disney Vacaction club and go every year and we have NO kids. Cause Disney does NOT discriminate against people with kids and people without. So HA to that! Lol

I think most of us that are on this ttc train have heard comments we dont want to hear like, "Well if its meant to be its meant to be." Or, "You mean you dont have any kids yet?" I try to be understanding of those who dont have fertility problems because they really dont understand what we are going through but sometimes its hard. At least we have this site to vent to one another. I hate that so many of us are facing fertility problems, but happy that there are woman on here that I can relate to.

I just couldn't say anything I was so dumbfounded. It's much easier to repond to non-friends. Just like I can't find anything to say to my good friends who are single that tell me "Well, at least you have a wonderful husband you WANT to have children with". Everyone has problems...

I'm so sorry about the comment about God's plan. I do truly believe that God must
