I had a hard time titling this post - and I am not sure that title is really right either.
One of my close friends, she has an office across the hall from me and we do things socially together, has been TTC since I met her 6-7 years ago. Numerous specialists, fertility treatments, lots of input and suggestions from well meaning people. She has been through it all, yet is still on the TTC path. She and her husband want kids SO badly.
Of everyone in my circle of friends and family, she is the one I dread telling the most. I remember when I was TTC my first (we tried only for 13 months comparatively) and it used to tear me up when someone would say, "guess what! I am pregnant!"
And now here I am pregnant with our third and she is still struggling with TTC.
In work I have to deal with people a lot, and giving news good and bad. I have gone through all my "tools" and nothing seems appropriate. I am struggling with how to tell her big time, but also don't want to sweep it aside and not tell her personally either and just "let" her find out from some random friend/coworker.
