I know my friend means well as she has also had ivf, but I find her comments condescending. She has experienced ivf in the past, but I just feel everyone's journey is so personal that I don't like to comment on her experience.
When I told her that I was doing ivf abroad she was aghast with horror.... don't comment on something you don't know about. Prior to my previous cycle she offered to keep me in check?!?! What am I going to do? Inject my husband instead or go on a 48 bender? I am an adult with a well balanced life not an ill behaved 16 year old.
She was adamant I shouldn't fly back too soon as she thought it would have an impact on success.. so I was worried about admitting I was home.
Then tonight I got a text asking if I was 'relaxing' that's fine... but then she said 'and no early testing this time' well again that's up to me. I text back saying I was glad I tested early before as helped when I started to bleed. I had a bit of control.
Anyway she only means well but it has taken me from serene and happy this evening to feeling on edge.
Sorry to rant! But Bugger off.
