When people say things like:
"You only want a baby so badly because you are trying to fill a void in your life. If you can't be happy and fulfilled without a baby then you don't deserve one."
Um, no dipsh!t. I AM happy and I AM fulfilled ... But it is actually biologically normal to 'long for' a child. I resent the insinuation that DH and I have to try so hard to get pregnant because we don't 'deserve' a baby.

Lemonhead - that is just heartless. People like that deserve a good smack in the head.
I work at a chicken shop - my favourite questions "do you sell whole chickens"um yep sure do...
"how do your chips come"- um COOKED
" can i have a cooked chook" um i dont think the health inspector will let us sell them raw......
I get sick of being asked if my DF and I will have a child of our own.We tried and it didnt happen actually it was a huge failure.
We have been together nearly 6 years and have a happy blended family with 3 kids between us.

I just read through the whole thread. I can't believe some of the heartless, cruel things people have said.

The whole list of 'it'll happen when you're ready'
'it'll happen when it's meant to be'
'it'll happen when you relax'
'it'll happen when a purple possum crosses the road'
NO it'll happen when I ovulate and.... Blahblahblah (too tired to recall how conception occurs... Lol)

"Maybe you should take a break from all the fertility treatment? So often it 'just happens' when people stop trying." Yes, we stop doing the treatment and I stop ovulating. I can see that being a successful plan.
"The biggest problem (to getting pregnant) is up here!" (tapping my forehead)
No. The biggest problem is down here. (Pointing to ovaries).
"Well at least you still have DD." I get this while trying for #2, and someone actually said it to a relative of mine who lost a daughter at 6. So, is that an acceptable thing to say if someone loses a parent? "Well, you still have another one..." Or a friend? "Hey, at least you've got some other ones..."

Are they twins? (nope I just kidnapped another child who looks eerily like my own)
Are they identical? (seriously? Can you not tell? FFS if they look the same wouldn't that imply they are identical? What do you want me to say- that one has a mole on the top if his head and the other one a freckle on his bum so that must mean they're not identical?!?)
Will you have another baby? (will your life change dramatically depending on my answer? Do you really need to know its a huge ongoing argument between dp and I because I want another one and he doesn't? Do you want to hear that it's been going on for 3 years with no resolution in sight? How I feel incomplete but he feels as though another one would be a huge strain on the family, especially if it turns out to be allergic to sleep like the boys apparently were?)
Did you wake up on the wrong side of the bed? (huh? Magically overnight I swapped places with dp? And even if I did, it's somehow put me in a bad mood?!)
(but yeah, maybe this morning I *did* wake up on the wrong side of the bed!)

I like how everyone has an opinion on my reproduction...
After arguing with DP (and whinging to mum about it) recently I called her up with exciting news and she said "phew, I thought you were going to say you were pregnant" ummm I'm 28 years old, I thought that would have been good news mum? Sorry, I didn't realize that in order to be have a baby you can never argue with your partner...especially growing up with you and dad! Lol
And then my mil when it came up that we were trying for a baby "well you're not getting any younger, the clocks ticking".. And I think "who said we were having kids in the first place and actually I'm not that freaking old, thanks"...
I probably take these things too personally at the moment but it is interesting how everyone feels they have a say...
