  • I feel like everyone knows that we're TTC. Which makes it hard when it's not happening. Everyone is always asking how things are going. I know that they just care but it makes it difficult. Plus I'm a mother/baby & peds nurse so not a day goes by that a parent asks me if I have children. Just that constant reminder that we've been trying without luck.

  • This time I decided not to share it with very many people.
    I am furious right now actually, because my sitter felt the need to tell my hairdresser (their kids run in the same circle) that she thinks I'm trying to get pg again because of all these "mysterious trips" I've been making in the mornings. My hairdresser's other kid is in my class this year- and I really don't want the parents speculating on whether I'm pg or not. Now that we're done trying and I'm not pregnant, i'm really fuming about it.

  • Well our family knows.It was kind of hard to hide with the tubal reversal and all.My mother is always asking my dh if he is doing his job! I think if frustrates me more then it does him. I tell her obviously if we had the reversal! She always frustrates me and my sister with her off the hip comments,not that she is doing it on purpose.So every month I get a BFN I think to myself " Great I am going to have to listen to mom AGAIN".I do love my mom but she is annoying me with this "you should be at home doing your job"GRRR

  • Glad to hear so many people feel the same way! I have a very close friend who married my cousin, they are expecting in Oct, and another friend due in Dec- everyone knows we want kids and most people know that we are trying even though we haven't REALLY said that we are...it can be pretty frustrating. The friend of mine that married my cousin and I work together at a special needs preschool where everyone is "baby crazy" which is great, except that they keep asking! My answer is always "hopefully SOON" Keep those chins up ladies!
