So, in the last 3 days I've heard that one of my best friends and my partners cousin are both pregnant, due within 4 weeks of each other.
One had been trying 1 month, one wasn't even trying and just missed her pill
I'm over the moon for them both, and i'm not writing this as I feel the situation is 'unfair' - it was always going to happen and there's obviously as reason it's us who's going through this (I'm sure we'll find out what someday!!) so I've never felt hard done by by the situation.
The main thing with this situation is that both couples were 'worried' about how they'd tell my partner and I. I'm touched by their consideration for us, which we more than appreciate, but I don't like the thought that people are considering us differently to anyone else just because we're having to go through IVF. I feel a bit like we're those people that others are walking on egg shells around...
We're both open people and have been very honest about our journey as i think it also helps raise awareness of it, so i guess we've opened ourselves up to people's reaction to it...has anyone else felt like this? Any tips on how to try and get everyone to view us like were not lepers just because we're a little bit anatomically broken?!
