Ohh I can relate to most of these
Being told to relax is the worst one. Even when people know that I don't ovulate and we've been going through fertility treatment... Apparently 'not stressing' is all it takes to fix everything.
Similarly, the stories about "My friend did IUI/ IVF and it never worked, and then they stopped trying and conceived straight away. I think it was because they just relaxed about it all."
Friends who don't know what to say, and shut you down when you try to talk about it.
People who say "It's so crazy how it happens. I got pregnant within a millisecond of thinking the word 'pregnant', and then there are others for whom it takes a long time..."
The over analysing/ googling of every 'pregnancy symptom' in the 2ww.
Life being on hold. E.g., can't book a holiday as I might be 'newly pregnant' and not wanting to fly at that point in time. Had to cut back on gym/ PT on advice from FS.
The fear that it might not happen.
Other people airily insisting that all will be fine, when no one can know.
I could go on and on (and on), but I will spare you, and I'm kind of making myself cry.

I thought it was just me being irrational getting annoyed when people just tell me to relax, but I guess not. All "relaxing" did was make me ovulate 4 days earlier and therefore reduce my cycle by 4 days, so I'm still no closer to having a longer LP.
Fear of it not happening is a big one, yup...

People trying to place blame as to why it isn't happening.
"Oh it must be because you were such a skinny teenager'.
"It's probably because DH does a desk job".
"It could be because of that time that you punched a backyard doctor in the kidney for giving his unwarranted two cents about why you're not very fertile".
Ok, that last one might be a future one

I too hate the 'just relax it will happen' crapola. My friend (the only one who knows we are TTC and has 2 kids) says that to me every time I try and talk to her about how Im feeling. It sucks!!
Also the fear of it never happening.

Ugh...I hate all thing TTC and It's only my 6 month in.
Hate not having obvious O signs
Hate waiting for O
Hate waiting for AF to arrive (cause she does every month)
Hate that my cycles seem to be getting shorter (six months ago 31 days now 24!)
....That's all that springs to mind right now

when you hit the new posts button on the hub and all that showing on the first page is due in forums, or general parenting advice...
I don't know why but that one actually hurts a lot.
