You just love it when relatives or friends ask you when you are going to start trying for a baby. You usually put on a fake smile and answer “we’re not sure” or “hopefully soon,” and hope that someone changes the subject.
But come on, you know what you really want to say – “Well Aunt Selma, we have been trying for a baby for months, nothing seems to be happening and now we are on the waiting list to have IVF so hopefully we can oneday have a baby. We may be childless and infertile for the rest of our lives, for all we know. But thanks for asking.” Do people just forget how difficult it is to conceive?
