What is the one thing you should never say to someone struggling to fall pregnant? Those five little words that make you just want to punch the person in the face?
"JUST RELAX, IT WILL HAPPEN"
I'm on an email list with a few girlfriends that I rarely ever see anymore and very occassionally we'll send a bulk email out announcing some news. Over the past two years or so I've had all the pregnant emails I can handle, and this week one of the girls announces that she is 18 weeks with her third baby. Then proceeded to try and organise that all the 'pregnant' girls in the group should get together and photograph their bellies. Non pregnant friends I'm guessing were not invited. Annoying.
I was getting sick of all the emails so I wrote a simple one back "Congrats on baby #3, still no luck here after 2 years trying".
I thought that would give a subtle hint to quit the baby talk, or at least take it off the main email bulk list which I'm on.
Oh no, instead she proceeds to write back (again to everyone on the email list), that I'm obviously too stressed right now and that I should just relax and then it will happen.
Right, so in all these past two years the only reason that I haven't fallen pregnant is that I'm too stressed? Now why didn't I think of that.
