Ok sorry but this is going to be a bit of a rant! I wish there was a helpful pocket sized leaflet out there called 'What not to say to someone going through IVF or struggling to convince ' as I would post it straight to my step mother! Just had another chat with her over the phone and in one sentence she seemed to manage to squeeze in the phrases 'keep your chin up, just relax and it will happen and keep on doing lots of it'. She infuriates me so much and I feel like screaming!!!! When people say things like that to you it makes you feel like you are actually doing something wrong in the bedroom department! 😳. She has told me a number of times we just need to 'get drunk and have fun' like this is the answer to our infertility issues. I've tried talking to her in an adult way about everything going on but she still thinks I just need to relax and have more sex! Oh if only life were that easy!!
Ok rant over, and I feel much better now!! Hoping you lovely ladies don't have such insensitive and clueless people in your lives and I solemnly swear I will never tell any of you to 'relax and keep doing it' 😉 xx
