Her: “Guess whose pregnant? My little sister Kimmy!”

What you thought: Are you kidding me? Didn’t she JUST get married a couple months ago? I bet they had sex, like, 1 time and she got pregnant. Must be nice to be so fertile. Isn’t she only, like, twenty years old? What the hell?! It’s really unfair. She just gets married and gets pregnant like it’s so damn easy. Must be nice. We couldn’t get pregnant even if a sperm was surgically implanted into an egg. She’ll probably have three kids by the time we get pregnant. I never liked her anyways. I bet she’ll have a cute little belly and won’t gain very much weight. I really don’t like her.

What you actually said: Wow. That’s nice news. Wish her congratulations for me.

(Insert awkward looking fake smile).

    I feel this exact way every time someone announces that they are pregnant.

    Too bad I’m not looking a mirror when I say, “Oh, that’s great, congrats,” cuz I wonder if my facial expression is convincing enough? lol!

  3. Christina says:

    I just had that happen to me on Thursday too! Fake smile and all! Lol

    LMAO. I’m so rude…I don’t even bother congratulating them anymore.

    I can’t fake happiness anymore for fertile myrtles. They get so much joy out of being pregnant and everyone else’s positive reactions, that they don’t need mine.

    I’m not happy for you, or do I care you are pregnant. I want to be pregnant! It’s been my fecking turn for the past few years!!

    My issue is more with the b*tching that comes in another month or so. One of my husbands employees was complaining to me that her feet get so swollen and they hurt. I told her I was the last person she ought to be complaining to. Her response? “I know but it really is horrible”. I had to walk away after that to avoid punching her. If you’re lucky enough to get pregnant, you do not get to complain…

    Totally agree with Kat, the whining is what gets to me, I want to punch them in the face. I only overhear it though, because if anyone ever complained to my face, I would go all kung-fu on them!

  7. Abby says:

    The complaining is brutal to listen to. I would give anything to have any of those pregnancy problems, even if they are miserable. It’s just heartbreaking to have to put on the fake smile. I found out tonight that we are now the only ones in our group of friends who aren’t pregnant, and we’ve been trying the longest. This site is about the only thing that can perk me up when I hear news like that!

    Holy Cow! You’ve read my mind! I’ve had this internal conversation many, many times!!! Creepy….

    Just read an article about Tori Spelling “ignoring” her doctor’s advise about not having sex for six weeks after she had her third or fourth baby. Well-turns out her baby was ONE MONTH old when she got pregnant again! She didn’t think she would because she was breast feeding! So now she has like 5 kids or something. And we just had our first (failed) IVF cycle. OY.

    What the heck am I missing here!?!? Fertile B#%#$@, lol. I never liked her anyway….which goes WAYYYYY back to the 90210 days….

    Sigh. My fertile friend who already has a daughter tells me, “Hubby and I are going to try for baby #2. We’re planning to have it in (this) month” She does not know that hubby and I have been trying for over a year, with no success. I just know it – it’s only a matter of weeks before I hear from her, “I am pregnant!”

    *Banging my head on the brick wall*….

    I wonder if God is punishing me.. but I don’t know what I have done to deserve this. I’d like to think I am an incredibly kind/nice person but I must have been really bad in my past life or something.

    This is beyond hilarious because my DH’s baby sister, Kimmy, just turned 20, just got married six weeks ago, and told me they are trying to get pregnant because her sister (not me, the other one, but also me too) has been TTC for years and she is scared the same thing will happen to her and she doesn’t want to waste any time. Poor, idiotic child. So we, her two (much) older infertile sisters, are going to LOVE this when it comes to pass!

    Oh my gosh, seriously dying that the details match almost to a T!
