    I had someone pull the "how exciting!" The other day. I get where she's coming from - she really wants to be engaged and thinking about babies so to her ttc is exciting, unfortunately to me, needing to use ivf and having a few failed cycles under my belt is definitely not exciting!

    Then another colleague said "yeah I've heard it's not the most pleasant experience"... Ummm "not pleasant" is about as far as it gets from what ivf is like. Try the most difficult, painful, gut wrenching, soul destroying experience of my life.

    I do have one colleague who is super sensitive though - we had another pregnancy announcement at work last week and the mother said something about trying really hard to hide it, and a lady sitting near me said "oh clever girl!" And my colleague pulled her aside and said "just to clarify you meant clever about hiding the pregnancy not clever for getting pregnant right? Because there are other people who are ttc and that could have been upsetting!" And I'm just like gees, if only that was the worst thing anyone had said to me! Haha!

    I remember my best friend (who's a doctor) saying 'how exciting' and then when I said, 'no not really' she told I was being too negative... Can't win with some people!

    I was talking to a friend the other day and mentioned we were going to be doing our next cycle in August, to which she responded with "oh you don't want to be pregnant in the heat of summer, that would be awful."
    I then said to her that actually, I'd just be happy to be pregnant and I couldn't care less at which time of the year it happened. I must admit I did get a bit of pleasure out of seeing her shut up and not know what to say to that!

    Yes! My mum asked if we were going to take a couple of months off ivf because "it would be so awful to have a baby born around Christmas because they'd never be able to have a birthday party because it would always be holidays!". I pretty much said the same as you - I'd be happy to just have a child, I'm certainly not going to be picky about when it's born!

    Hi Ladies, sorry that you have had to endure such awful comments. Wishing you the very best with your journeys. After much struggle (as per signature), our dreams were realised. As per your thoughts, I was pregnant with our little man during summer and loved every bit of it. He was also born around Easter time, I see it as more to celebrate. So I am with you guys ANY time is a beautiful time. Much love to you all. Xx

    Wow cannot believe wot some of you ladies have had to endure!! We too had some pretty stupid things said to us in our 4yrs of IVF (we were eventually blessed with our now 4yr old DD) but the most stupid thing I had said to me was after being diagnosed with a rare form of cancer 2yrs after our daughter was born was - oh u must really regret doing IVF now because it must be the cause of your cancer!! WTF?? I politely informed the person that there is no connection at all between IVF drugs and the cancer I had...

    What! That is so ridiculous!!! And how awful to make out as though the cancer was your fault. So rude and possibly the least helpful thing you could say. Hope you are ok now.

    What an awful thing for someone to say. Honestly, some people are born without a brain to mouth filter I think! Hope you are ok now.
