That's my new motto.
You want to tell me it's time for us to have another baby?
Then you get to hear how it's not for lack of trying (for 18 months). I'll even describe the trying sessions if it will make you stop.
Maybe then people will stop saying that? You think?
(sorry for the vent - just getting tired of that remark)
People are so insensitive. The worst for me when we were trying for Jamie was "well, at least have fun trying".. whatever. it is NOT fun trying when you try for that long! It is hard and stressful. People really have no clue what to say and how to say it.
No need to apologize for venting!
OMG I totally understand how you feel.
I'm so tired of hearing so when are you going to have children? (get that one all the time from guests at work). The look on their faces is priceless when I say we are infertile. Some are oh **** sorry I asked and others are confused.

I'm sorry Trina. I know how you feel. There's this one super annoying lady that lives near us. Whenever she sees me she asks me if I'm pregnant, it's gotten really old. I hide from her now. I wish we could do that w/all the commenters!
that sucks. can you imagine if you got graphic with a description of how you're trying? The looks on your listeners' faces! But really, that's gotta get so old. I'm sorry.

ugh...people say the dumbest things...
When I had my last miscarriage one of our clients (who knew all about it and who's wife has been through it so he had no excuse) says to me literally while I am miscarrying "wow you look really slim! Good for you!" omg...yeah that's what you want to hear as you are losing your baby...I just walked off...i still wish I had have said what I wanted to which was "I don't want to look slim you idiot...I want to look big and fat and pregnant..." I guess it runs in his family because HIS Mom said to me "So, how's the miscarriage going??" Ugh...yeah going terrifically thanks. Loving this..."
If the shoe was on the other foot and such dumb things came out of my mouth accidentally, I would've even stopped myself and apologized...
sorry you have to keep hearing about it...
Ugh! People are such idiots Trina. Keep your chin up girlie!

Silly girlies, you don't have to turn your siggy's off because I was venting! People being pregnant don't bother me, I know our situation is unique (like everyone else), I just figured out of a group of women that have been or want to be (or are!) pregnant, you'd all understand where I'm coming from I just have to live vicariously thru all of you! Thanks for the comments, I was just having a bad day (and one too many FB comments ... seriously think FB is bad!)
