just wanted to share that i'm glad i'm not the only one who struggles with their parents, both during ttc/ivf and post-baby! Mine did not want to know about it at all during the hard years and now DD is finally here and i mention what we went through to have her my mum just says "ah well its all behind you now, move on" The fact is it will ALWAYS be with us, its what brought us to our precious bub. It upsets me that they cant understand the importance of our lost babies too, if it wasn't for them DD wouldn't be here....so yes actually it will never be "behind us". They will NEVER be forgotten or dismissed.
I now try to bring up the journey we travelled whenever i can, to try and get them to put things into perspective. My mum is amazed i'm still breastfeeding at nearly 10 mths and is trying to get me to wean DD, she thinks its a burden on me!! WTF!! i told her very firmly that i've waited 7 long years to have this "burden" and i may never get to have it again!...Good lord do you think I might even enjoy and appreciate my miracle baby sucking on my boobs!??! ....PARENTS!!.....in my head i'm saying "of course I'M never going to be like them!!"
Just so glad there are others out there who totally understand...thanks for listening xxx
