My mom came to visit this week, and she’s the only one I’ve told (other than DH obviously) that I went off the pill and we’re TTC. I know my mother is really excited for us and about the prospect of grandchildren (we’re the first), but she didn’t say anything the whole time except for once. We were at dinner, DH had gone to the bathroom, and she said to me, “As far as what you’re doing, I hope it’s easy for you. I hope you don’t have to struggle.”
And that was it. I just thought it was so awesome that she was so supportive but not pushy or invasive, and that she knew the absolute perfect thing to say.
So to all of you TTC Bees out there – I hope it’s easy for you!

@ZoeyGirl: Aw that’s really sweet and really great of her to show her support without being overbearing. 🙂 Excited for you and I hope you get your BFP soon!

However, I’m curious if SHE struggled. You may not want to inquire into your parents sex lives right now, but if it ends up it does take a while, there may be important medical info there.

That’s very nice of her. Unlike my mom who casually asked me last week “so how much is IVF nowadays?” She knows we’ve been struggling. I was upset at her and let her know… so she said “what i’m just asking an innocent question, i don’t mean anything by it”. So I said “how much does a nursing home charge nowadays? Just asking an innocent question” I also told her something along the lines of butt out of my uterus. That shut her up for now.

OP, that is awesome. It’s nice to see moms out there that aren’t crazy, haha

That’s sweet! I got “dad and I both think it will be hard for you”, which sounds mean but I know it was intended as concern and nothing else…yours was better phrased for sure!

Totally sweet! I hope the same thing for you and any ttc bees.

@SapphireSun: We’ve already talked about it before, I know it only took a few months for me and my brother, and my sister was an accident so I’m assuming it was very easy. Thanks for your concern though, and I agree that it’s good to know your family’s history (even if talking about sex with your parents makes you squeamish).

@MrsOats: Haha it’s so unfortunate when people are trying to display concern, and then manage to say it in the least supportive way possible! I love your comeback. Good luck!
