Just relax! Your too stressed! I have a friend that it took 10 years… it will happen when it happens!!
Okay… seriously?! I am not that stressed and I do relax. And hearing that it took your friend x amount of years to concieve is NOT HELPFUL! You know how much it hurts to hear, in “10” or “5” or what every x amount of years it is! Hitting almost a year and a half is hard enough…. if I even think it will take that long, I will be devasted and loose hope. Dont do that to me. I like my hope… I like thinking, this is our month or our year. Keep your comments to yourself.
Ugh, why did I ever open my mouth and tell people we were trying??! gah!
Sorry… had to vent. =(

@Sbee82: Ugh that SUCKS. I know people have good intentions at heart – they just want to reassure you and tell you that it does happen even if it takes a long time – but there’s nothing comforting about the idea of trying for a decade before a baby comes. I also HATE it when people say ‘it will happen when it happens’ about anything. NO SHIT IT WILL HAPPEN WHEN IT HAPPENS! That’s not comforting at all!
I’m sorry people are being such assholes and I wish you the best of luck TTC. I’m sure your time will come really soon (is that another annoying one?).

@Sbee82: I could have wrote this myself. I HATE when people say, “Well, I know blah blah blah and it took them six years, but look! They got pregnant!”
I think it’s worse than, “Maybe God isn’t ready for you to be pregnant yet.” Well, maybe not worse than, but damn close.

@Sbee82: preach!!! I flipped the bird at a friend that had the BALLS to tell me ” Well IVF isn’t natural and that’s why you had a miscarriage. It’s against God” She’s lucky all she got was my finger and not my fist in her stupid face. People say relax/ it will happen/ it took my friend X years because they think that’s helpful or comforting… for the most part. People struggle with what to say and end up saying a total bonehead thing. Usually it’s not from a bad place but it’s still annoying as hell.
