Ok I almost fell of my chair reading this rubbish that some people say to you poor girls.
I've told my mum I am starting ivf treatment in a couple of month and she is nothing but supportive. it took her 5 years to fall with me and she never managed to give me a sibling. She was the one who told me not to wait too long and is thankful and hopeful about science and the prospect of science eventually giving her a grandchild.
I told my best friend also which is very supportive and also doesn't say anything inappropriate. She herself had to have 8 cycles of ivf and 5 laps for her stage IV Endo and missing tube and incorrectly shaped uterus. I guess she had this terrible experience and isn't as ignorant as some people who fall pregnant in a blink of an eye.
Two of my SILs are both medical professionals luckily so no silly comments from them either. I only trust those 2 of my 5 SILs.
I guess I am very lucky.
I requested my husband not to tell his parents as they wouldn't understand I think. I also told him not to tell any friends and in particular not one SIL which has 6 kids (pregges with no 7) and is of the opinion that when I expressed my wish for a child that I should reconsider for my step children's sake and she reckons I would also have no time for the child with my corporate careers. She further mentioned a friend of hers going through Ivf and how she would never do this... Easy coming from her with 7 freakin kids lol. But no hubby and I shouldn't add to our blended family of 4 (us & hubby's 2 kids)...
I can't wait for the day to hopefully tell her that I am one of those science baby mummies she totally disagrees with lol. I hope my day will come.
