I have been ttc for 23 months, during that time I have ovulated 4 times (three medicated), got ku once (8 months in) and lost that pregnancy at 7 weeks due to to progesterone deficiency which caused my lining to shed, the day I mc I had an u/s so I know my baby was alive and had a hb of 140/bpm. since that time i have done 3 cycles of clomid, had 4 cycles cancelled or delayed for cysts (i have pcos), and 4 cycles cancelled for uterine polyps. I realize most of you ladies have bee through a hell of a lot more and for a hell of a lot longer.
Now the rant - I have a friend who it took 14 months to get ku. She did several rounds of clomid, and then got pregnant on her own, had a pretty uneventful and healthy pregnancy and now has this beautiful little boy who is about a month younger than my baby would be if she had not died.
so she tells me yesterday, with her baby in her arms, that she understands where I am coming from and that she had been where I am. I could not help it I called her on her bs. I told her that there is no way that she has any idea where I am coming from and that until she could count the time she had been trying in years, and had to flush her baby and carry the question of when her baby actually died, she would never understand. She got mad at me and said that i was denying her struggle.
if you are still reading this...was I wrong to call her out or should I have just not said anything?
