Hey ladies<br>
Getting back into the ttc sadle again doesn't always bring the nicest of comments from folks. So I was thinking about what my dr said just before he was promptly replaced when we were ttc our dd was "ya gotta have sex to get pregnant huhu". This after 12 months of trying with no avail. <br><br> So let's laugh at others insensitivities and share your story of the most insensitive thing said or done during your ttc journey!!<><br>

I'm tired of hearing, it will happen when it happens. I know this is suppose to be the most insensitive thing that has been said to me, but a friend of mine wife is pregnant with their second child. All she talks about is that she wished she had time for just the two of them again or how is she going to deal with two kids until the age of 2. She talks about wanting to be able to just pack a bag for the weekend and go, but cannot now because they have a baby. And she is depressed about her body not being a size 2 anymore.  But then she changes back to how much she just loves her little bundle.

Oh how I would give to just have my own.....  sorry this was a vent instead.

I was having a bad first day of AF, and a friend said to me "you don't want kids anyways, have you seen what mine have done to my body?". Yeah, let's just say that I've avoided her ever since...

Yikes! A double doozy. Your mom and grandmother. Sometimes people try to be supportive but it just comes out so badly. I DARE not tell my mother that I'm ttc again. I don't even want to hear the myriad of reasons why SHE I shouldn't and how things were different after I came along. (I'm the 2nd). Ahhhh family

When we found out my husbands SA came back with majority abnormal sperm. My mom said, well that's obviously a blessing. You wouldn't want an abnormal child.. My grandmother said well there's a lot of childless couple out there.. Neither of those comments helped the situation...

Im so sick of hearing mean people say "oh she can't get pregnant, maybe that gods way of saying she doesn't need to have kids" really, really? Then why do women with drug addictions, prostitutes or any other girl that doesn't want to get pregnantwho ends up pregnant anyway but so many of us struggle with some sort of issue when trying to conceive.
