“That baby looks good on you.”
“ and it will happen.”
“When are you getting pregnant?”
It doesn’t matter if you live in North America, in the UK or another country, people seem to make the exact same comments to infertiles. How did they learn to make these same comments? In the stone ages, did a group of people just get together one day and determine the phrases that would be used to make infertile women miserable? Perhaps, a mother dinosaur gave her daughter a disapproving stares when daughter dino failed to become pregnant. Maybe, a mother ape tried telling her daughter to ‘just relax’ after months of failed intercourse. Go to a small village at the other side of the world and you can almost guarantee that a relative living in a man-made hut is asking an infertile woman why she isn’t pregnant yet. In some remote location, in the middle of the world, where television and Internet is still non-existent, a nosy neighbor is advising a woman to drink some magical juice and she will get pregnant.
We all may live at different ends of the world but we all seem to feel the exact same way. It’s nice to know we are not alone.
