So here is my dilemma. I've got a friend who had her baby about 6 months ago. She found out about her unexpected pregnancy around the same time as we started ttc, so we have spent her pregnancy together having a lovely time talking babies/planning baby showers and then when the baby arrived, watching him grow. I had hoped during this time I would fall pregnant but I haven't and to be honest, all the baby chat is now something that I don't enjoy and as a result I actively avoid her. So my problem is I want to keep seeing her but I can't deal with talking baby. What do I do?
Here are some examples of recent chat we have had, noting that she has a 6 month old baby and I have been ttc for a year and a half having done 3 failed clomid rounds, 2 failed and IUI rounds and probably just about to fail my first Icsi+PGD cycle.... So you can imagine my current mental state
- 'what weaning technique do you think you will use?'
- ' have you decided which stroller you want yet?'
- 'when shall we arrange your baby shower?'
- 'will you use cloth or disposable nappies?'
I felt like saying, 'you know what, I'm just hoping my embryos get to day 3 stage, how and when to wean is not really in my thoughts yet, and as far as planning my baby shower goes, it's like planning a wedding when you're single!'
