I'm back from a weekend at the Cape. We went to a friend's surprise 40th birthday. I was told by my nurses not to drink during the 2WW after my IUIs. I got a beer and had a few small sips in front of key people and then I just carried the cup around for a while.
I said hello to someone (a guy that is a nut, and not even invited to the party, but someone that is sort of part of the crowd). He then said (in front of lots of our friends) "So, you're in the family way. . . am I allowed to know that?" I said "what, who told you I was pregnant?" He said, "oh, cocktail party chatter, someone said you must be pregnant." I said, "well, that's totally awful that someone would say that, and I'm not."
He THEN said, "oh, well. . . I recently asked a woman at work and she THANKED me because everyone else was afraid to ask." (I don't believe that for a minute!)
I can't believe how angry and sad I was. I wish I had forced him to tell me who said it, but I was so upset and felt totally blindsided. The people there are our really good friends and I can't believe someone would say that about me.
I feel like I'm prepared for people asking me "when are you having a baby?" or "you guys should have a baby" all the USUAL rude questions/comments. I just wasn't prepared for this one. . .
I covered well, but I was really angry for the rest of the party.
