Wow... people can be SO clueless! It's like we need to make t-shirts for ourselves to wear in these circumstances: "TTC and I don't need your opinion or your advice... now back the F*** up!" Seriously though, that is so frustrating, especially from your mom - it sounds like she knows of your troubles and it was particularly insensitive of her to comment. I'm glad your vent made you feel better!

I love my mother dearly, but (unfortunately) I've been dealing with the fact that my mother has no "filter" for my whole life! Don't be too sad for me though, I did tell her off a little bit :)

I do want to know where I can get one of those shirts!! I'd also like to get one that says "Yes, I know I'm not as skinny as I was in college, thanks" and "I know you love your new baby, but does EVERY one of your facebook posts have to be about it?"

Thanks for "listening" ladies, I definitely feel better venting to somebody who understands!

Vent away! Vent away! Ugh...we should start selling those t-shirts! We could make a fortune ;)

I love the payback ideas!! I love hiding the gender -that'll drive them mental! Or pick some ridiculous, odd ball name for the new baby & listen to everyone freak out about it! Lol ya you should definitely mess around with them ;)

Hugs!!! People say the dumbest things. I started getting harrased by my family a few months ago about having another child. It's so insensitive and annoying, I feel your pain. I don't say a word though because I think it's worse for them to know I'm trying and then get quizzed down monthly on my progress. I like Angela's idea of talking seriously about wierd baby names to get a good reaction. Hope your bfp is on the way!

Go ahead and let it out!!! I still can't get over how many people are insensitive to this issue! I mean come on, do they seriously think everyone can just pop out a baby when they want it! It is just hurtful!

Thanks ladies. It doesn't help that SIL has 3 children and got pg with each one the first month, and has to tell everybody that. ANNOYING. Pretty sure I'm out this month, here's hoping the wait isn't too much longer :) Hope you're all doing well!
