It seems like everyone around us is getting pregnant and I'm so tired of it all. What's worse is, they're people that I know don't really care if they have a baby, or in some cases, another one. They're the 'ohh we went to a party one night and had to much to drink and next thing you know, oopsie' people. No joke that was literally what one of our "friends" said to us. I know we are all probably having these moments so I just needed a little vent. Thanks for listening.

People just don't think before they make these comments. I work with someone who purposly took out her IUD to try to conceive because her boyfriend wanted another child. She was pregnant the next month and made the comment...I think this is the worst thing that could have happend to me... She doesn't even really want to be pregnant and she's telling this to 2 of us that are having problems getting pregnant!!! Hang in there and just keep trying.

It IS really frustrating. But we also have to think, do these people know that we're TTC? Obviously if they know you've been TTC for awhile they may watch their comments a little better (or maybe not if they're just that insensitive). I haven't told anybody IRL that we're trying, and don't intend to even for several weeks after getting pregnant, so sometimes people can make hurtful comments w/o even meaning to. Hopefully we'll all get our BFPs soon!!

It is upsetting to hear those kind of comments and can totally relate. I absolutely HATED hearing my future SIL's story about how she "didn't even realize she missed her period". I won't get into her whole story, but let's just say I almost had to walk out of the room during it. So these moments are totally normal we ALL have them.

I know how you feel....and to tell you the truth I used to be one of those people who would say "oh my husband just has to walk by the bed and I get pregnant" or OOOps we didnt mean to get pregnant and my sister in law spent her whole savings and sold her house to try and have a baby. at the time I thought oh my goodness when are you going to call it quits and realize it isnt ment to be but now that the shoe is on the other foot and I can't seem to get pregnant I have had to apoligize for being so harsh, I didnt realise how badly it hurt and how hard it is to hear everyone around you telling their getting pregnant without really wanting it stories....I hope your day comes soon and you get your BFP and can share with everyone as we would all like to...
