I have two girls and honestly, I’m kind of hoping for another girl. I’d be happy to have a boy, but thinking of all of the hand-me-downs and money saved is awesome.@kmj1426 comments like that in front of your kids is a whole new level of insensitivity
After learning we've miscarried: "At least you know you can get pregnant without medication!"
Re: Say What?!?!?!
last weekend I asked SIL when they would be getting a dog ( which they have been talking about for months) her response was to look me dead in the eyes and say “when you give my kids cousins” thank goodness S/O was in his game and changed the subject back to dogs I looked away so quick I’m not good at lieing😳
Also today got a "Can you eat sushi?" when suggesting a sushi restaurant. "Yep, I can eat whatever I want!"
I got the give us cousins comment while I was struggling with IF and just said “at this rate never” that shut them up and it pretty much never came up again
i hate that we are made to feel like we should wait to tell it’s exciting and scary and we want to share that with people we care about and care about us! The only reason I’m not telling yet is because I want to tell my parents first, when I see them in person, they live far away and I won’t see them for a few weeks yet, though I’ve told a few people that knew when my most recent iui cycle was
My favorite so far was a coworker who knew I miscarried 3 weeks earlier, say "ooohhh now you have to have a baby!" the day my sister had her little boy. I had no words.... some people are not very smart.
I am sure i’ll able to contribute a lot to this thread over the next few months since this is my sixth baby. I’ve already had one that is a little too crude for me to post here, but it basically suggests other ways for us to have sex so that we prevent pregnancy. It’s always shocking to me how many people have comments about my bedroom habits since we have a large family.
hmmm maybe that’s a UO for another time...

I have no words for that @kmj1426 that’s got to be such a tough situation because I would have some choice words for him, but also not want to lose my cool in front of the kids.
They still get to wait 2 weeks to find out.
At least you can get pregnant
At least you can try again
At least it happened early
At least you know what to do differently next time...
So bleeping mad.
what to do differently next time?!?!
As if it is your fault? Ugh.
That's ok, you can try again [this one isnt important?]
Well, you werent that far along anyway
At least you werent 24 weeks or farther [still death of a child]
Maybe its gods way of saying youre not ready
There was probably something wrong with it
All from family that hasnt experienced MC.
Whether its 6 weeks, 9 weeks, 40 weeks, its still very painful and I need to grieve.
