Not yet, but that’s because I haven’t really had to tell anyone but my ob-gyn and my mom (simply because I tell her everything).

I have to say my mom’s not so much nosy as opinionated. I swear it’s gotten worse with age. Sometimes I just want to tell her it’s my life, if I get pregnant now or later it’s totally my business. I know it’d hurt her feelings though. She really does mean well. One example of this is her concern that we are TTC now vs. in a few months. We are in the middle of moving closer to DH’s workplace which is an hour away right now. Understandably being pregnant before December may be a little hectic, but DH and I really wanted to start ttc this past month as we aren’t sure how long it will take and want a baby in the next year. Maybe once I get pregnant she’ll shut up and simply be happy for us instead of thinking of the worst case scenario and jumping to conclusions. She’s a worrier.

Sorry to hear about your BFN- here’s to hoping for your next cycle! Baby dust!

@Macintosh:  Sorry about your BFN! I’m sure your dentist was just making small talk, but she did take it to another level with jumping into questions about fertility drugs.  I think people forget don’t realize what a sensitive subject TTC can be.  I hope you get your BFP soon!

some people just forget that they arent questions that you ask people that you dont know. even if you do know them i wouldnt be asking questions. its annoying.  and a bit weird, but it does happen. hopfully you get a BFP very soon!!
