When we are in a big group of our friends... and they ask: when are you having kids, any kids for you, thinking about starting a family, when are you guys going to start popping 'em out...? I have little patience for it now. I feel as though I have been fielding these questions for over a year now. I know they don't mean any harm - even though you really shouldn't ask anyone that question. At the party I just wanted to have fun and not deal with the questions or the stress of how I will respond.
When asked for the third time that day about having a baby, this is what occurred:
Q: When are you and going to have a Baby?
Me: If it were up to me, I'd already have a baby. We have been trying, and we have a problem... that we are working on.
Q: Shooting blanks, huh?
Me: No, the problem is me. I have PCOS, and currently taking diabetic medication in hopes to help me conceive. PCOS is a hormonal imbalance - it's been a really hard time.
I think the thing with infertility is- it does affect so much of your everyday life. Friends & family have said - don't let it consume you, don't like it take over.... if only it were that easy. I try to brush off incidences like that, but they stick in my mind. I know I have to let it go, but in some cases.... I feel like everyone is so intolerant, and all I want is compassion, not just for me but my Hubs as well. I think it makes people uncomfortable, and they don't know what to say and half the times it's offensive.
