I'm still here in the infertility arena. Just wanted to talk through another issue I'm having as I don't want history repeating itself.
Basically, I'm looking at starting my 5th ivf next year and soon have the consultation. Learning from previous mistakes I've told my manager everything and that I find it hard being around pregnant women and talk about babies/pregnancy. It's just a huge trigger for me, which I have seemed help to work through.
Yesterday a new girl had joined my team and I heard her talking she had her 3 month scan the day before. Along comes another heavily pregnant girl to discuss how shit it is to be pregnant with symptoms. My anxiety went to overdrive and I walked out. I told my manager what had happened and that im angry so staying away.
Am I right to think he could have prevented this being so bad by moving seats? Maybe he couldn't have told me shes pregnant (but then again he could so i could go away and react). Either way I would have reacted but at least if I was given a warning I could have had s chance to have some dignity to let it out. Instead I had to sought to crashing in the toilet floor screaming in tears about how unsupported I am at work and will be during ivf. It just hurts. It's not her fault,no,but it's not my fault I'm in this situation either. I've not slept or eaten. I cant even cry any more, I'm just so sad.
