1. Tell her you are also quite fertile, it is your husband who has the trouble.

Or, you could tell her she may have gotten the fertility gene that you missed, but you got the smart gene that she missed, so it all evens out in the end.

You girls are hilarious. Don't you just love thinking of great comebacks after the fact? I, for one, am never able to come up with those on the spot, but find great ones later when I'm still reeling about something.

Maybe I should be happy that I haven't told too many people about IVF. I don't have many funny things that have come up, just the annoying things since ttc like "you're trying too hard" or "have you tried robitussin?" or "have you tried laying upside down after sex?"

I think most sisters who are real close would do that for each other. :-]
