    Ummmmmmmm.......
    If only it was that easy!!!!!!

    I seriously think she thought that each transfer is a guaranteed BFP! Seriously! If only she knew each transfer was a $1,500 gamble (plus the rest!!), not to mention the physical and emotional rollercoaster!!
    Argh😡

    Wow. Just, wow.

    I realise I'm an imposter in this thread, but from one still mother to another, I think most of us understand that combining conception issues with stillbirth is worse. I would hope you don't have to hear stuff that like regularly (although with some of the stuff I've heard it wouldn't surprise me). I can't even imagine going through this while being administered hormones. I'm so sorry

    The rudest I ever had was "did you not want kids or is there something wrong with you"
    Had countless other comments but that one slapped me in the face!

    I'm doing PGD, my mum sent me an article about a study in mice where genetic defects healed themselves after the day 5 testing. Really not sure what she wanted me to do with the information, is she saying I shouldn't have discarded the embryos that were identified as having serious defects and had them implanted, then what, wait until 12 weeks and see if we need to have a termination?

    My mum would say the same things to me, they don't understand.

    Why IVF why not adopt? Yep thought of thst thanks but it will take 10+ years and i will be too old.

    Why you’ve already got one, why not stop? My desire for number 2 is still the same and did you stop at just one?

    I know such and such they tried for years then they stopped and now have a baby. Ummm hubbies sperm is fudged and it sint happening.

    His family oh poor you. Sorry you can’t have kids. Me grrrrr its him not me. I had to smile and walk away.

    Yeah I definitely love the
    'oh try not to stress and think about it too much'

    It's about as sensible as telling someone who has cancer just to not have cancer.
    People are idiots.

    1. some stupid women from neighbourhood asked me on a Thanksgiving that why I'm not having kids yet. That wasn't enough. She even went a step ahead to inquire if it's me who is busy with career and pushing it or is it my hubby who isn't into kids. I was on TTC for more than a year back then and scheduled for IUI not even 3 weeks from that very day.

    2. The other was when I was open about my infertility and announced I'll need IVF. One of my distant cousins got to hear that and called me up to give her condolences. While doing so she said, "I know how it feels, must be hard to accept that your child is not having a biological link to you". Duhh! It's IVF I wasn't adopting.
    Wow - the amount of stupidity in this world - people going out of their way to tell you too! I’ve been lucky in that I haven’t had really crazy stuff said to me aside from the @
    “try not to think about it...and it’ll happen...”’I’m no it won’t my eggs are crap....”.

    Reading this thread makes me so sad, I'm sure I've had all of these.

    The worst always comes from my (future) SIL when she's talking about her wedding next year and is always like - oh well, blah and blah and blah will totally be pregnant on my big day, so they won't be drinking anyway.

    I just cringe and want to say - sure, they may be pregnant, or they may be one of the "1 in 6" couples who is desperately trying to be pregnant and struggling with infertility.

    And old colleague one said, about another colleague who was going through IVF at the time that "maybe some people aren't meant to have children, especially if you need the help of science".

    When I ended up needing IVF myself this thought kept popping into my head, but the best advice I got was from a friend, who is a doctor, she said along the lines of: it's a medical issue, if you had cancer - no-one would bat an eyelid at you undergoing chemo, if you had a broken arm, no-one would have an issue with you being in a cast.

    Medical issue. Medical intervention. Full stop!
