I thought it might be a bit of fun and a bit of a vent session to share the sayings that you find most annoying when you tell someone you are going through IVF.
My top 3 are:
3 - "You just need to stress less about it, and then it will happen." I don't stress that bad until people start telling me to stop stressing. If stress was the only problem I would spend 10K on a holiday not on drugs and needles and egg collections.
2 - "Are you sure?" Once again mostly said when just beginning the IVF journey or when you have just discovered a cycle hasn't worked. Yes! of course I'm Sure!!! I know what a period looks like!
and my number 1 most annoying saying.....
1 - " Well you never know, I have a friend (or friend of a friend or aunt, sister, workmate, doctor.....) who went through IVF for years to have their babies and then when they were finally done they fell pregnant naturally." This does not make me feel better!
Anyway, please share your favourite (or least favourite) "helpful" sayings
