  • You know, I don't get any of that anymore!! It was relentless for the first 3 years, dropped off a little for the next 3, and after that.... nothing!! Now people have given up asking when we're going to have a family. And you know what? It's lovely!!!!

    Occasionally people who don't know us ask, but we have a stock answer which shuts them up!!

    I guess the reasonable assumption that's made is that if you are blessed with children, you can have children. But that's exactly why when I see a pregnant lady, or someone with children, I like to consider that maybe, just maybe, they went through hell to be blessed. Certainly makes me feel less jealous.

  • I hear friend and cousin in law...who is due today, lol, made comment that to most would seem innocent. When I told her my hubby got me a kitten for my birthday she said "but what about a baby? are you going to try?".... I was like "WE AREEEEEEEEE dang it!!!!!! And nothing is happening!!" AHHHH!!!! I know she meant well, but they go pregnant so quickly I don't think she has a CLUE!

  • OMG, I thought I was the only one that felt like all of these people were saying the dumbest things around me. My sister in law tells me "I don't know about trying, it just always happened for us." GEE, Thanks!
    Then my friend who just told me she is pregnant says "Well it takes most people a year of trying." Do you think that is really wanted I wanted to hear right now.
    Keep your chin up and know that you are not alone!
