Remember your ‘pregnancy plan’ from months/years ago? You had planned to get pregnant within a couple months, announce your pregnancy to the world (including posting those annoying Facebook photos of your belly), go on maternity leave and then leave your job for good…
…Fast forward to present day.
Your ‘pregnancy plan’ now included decades years of trying, many useless OPK and pregnancy sticks, fertility tests, forcing encouraging your husband to have a few semen analysis tests, blood and ultrasound appointments and Clomid/IUIs/IVFs, ect… So when your naive friend tells you her plans to get pregnant within a few months, all you can do is shake your head in frustration.
Naive Friend: “I plan to get pregnant with my first baby and have it in July. Then, I plan to get pregnant a second time, maybe two years later, and give birth in the summer too. I had another friend who planned it that way and I thought it sounded good.”
…And sometimes it’s okay for an infertile to smack a friend.
