My husband and I have decided that our best bet for pregnancy would be if he quit his job, we moved onto the street, became addicted to crack (or maybe meth?

I forgot about Maury! Is there something in the water on that set? How do I get hold of that water? (Well, not the stupid virus that is apparently in it, just the fertility part.)

This post could not be more true. I teach elementary school and I can't tell you how many parents should not have kids, yet seem to have way more than they can afford or care for properly. Even worse are the kids whose parents just don't care about them at all and are starved for attention. It is just so frustrating and unfair. I know I sound childish saying it, but I am so sick of something that is supposed to be so easy, and is so easy for so many people, being so hard for all of us. Also, I feel like everywhere I go people all around me are pregnant. I feel so resentful towards all of these strangers. I am trying to not let it bother me, but really all of these negative feelings are getting the best of me.

first of all lol....secondly I agree, it seems that no matter where you are in the world there are so many ppl like that. It totally sucks and is sooo unfair. My dh is 24 never smokes or drinks and is such an upstanding citizen and yet he has MFI and there so many guys I know who are alcoholics, have no ambition, no job and yet

Me - (Amanda 27) My dh-- 26 We have been ttc # 1 for 3yrs 5mths My dh has severe oligospermia, Ivf with icsi is our only option. Ivf # 1--- failed Ivf # 2--- failed Ivf # 3-- hopefully in March 2013 at a new clinic!

OMG I could have written this post myself! I have been having the hardest time with the very same issue lately. I just don't understand it at all.
