    Default *Vent* Stupid thing by brother said today.

    Today we had a BBQ at my mums and I was talking to my brother about ttc and my chem in October (I've had 1 m/c and 1 chem this year) and his reply was "have you considered that maybe your only meant to have 2 (kids). I know he didn't say it to be mean but it made me want to slap him.

    After spending over a year doing fertility treatment, then falling pregnant and ending up with Hyperemesis my dad said something very similar that, people who cant fall pregnant naturally should take it as a sign that they're not designed to have children... It was awful at the time as i'd just been discharged from hospital for dehydration...

    Idiot! What an insensitive and ignorant thing to say. I would have slapped him, at the very least verbally.

    Sorry you've had a difficult day!

    That's his theory to, if its not happening naturally then its not meant to happen. which is just so stupid.

    Thanks, I don't think he did either, he just doesn't have kids and doesn't get it.
