  • Ok!  These might be lame!

    I don't like starbucks, I may even hate it!

    I don't like the heat - I am actually glad we haven't gotten summer yet in the PNW.

    I don't like babyshowers, or seeing ANY baby bumps.

  • You should not bring your baby to the RE's office.  And if you absolutely must (as in all other sources of childcare have some life threatening emergency to tend to) then under NO cirucmstances should you encourage it to giggle and laugh in front of infertile people (or do anything else cute).  And if you do that, don't look around the room smiling thinking you and your baby are cute.  You're not.

    ETA: This probably isn't very UP on this board, but the rest of the world is clueless.

    My neighbor's son is living with her and so are his children.  I think he sucks as a dad, and my neighbor is sucks as a grandma.  She is always yelling at them.  Umm, I'm pretty sure there are better ways of disciplining a child, Just say'n!

    You shouldn't talk about how your husband won't get a vascetomy to stop getting you KU'd in front of your infertile friends. Seriously, I had to sit through this "discussion" at my OWN house the other night. Two of my friends are both super fertile and were fighting about how the husband should get snipped versus them getting tubes tied(husbands were there too giving their position). Really? They all know I am about to IVF. Please have a brain and shut your mouth.

    Again, this doesn't really fit in UP here but I just had to share it..

  • Ooooh, I'm game.

    (1)  I don't think that eating healthier makes you feel better or cleaner or lighter.  I think eating cheesecake makes you feel better as does chocolate and most cookies.

    (2)  I don't like boy bands...never have, never will.  Yes, I was alive during NKOTB; no, I don't care.  The same goes for New Edition, BSB, N Sync, the works.  I don't get it.

    Me = LPD + cancer survivor, DH = low count and morphology

    Or shove your newborn in my face and insist that I hold it.  With a smug look as if to say "See doesn't holding my baby make you feel so much better...you can borrow her/him"

  • I just thought of some none IF related ones.

    a)  I don't like beer, mayo or chicken and no matter how many times you talk about how delicious they are, it doesn't make me like them

    b) I don't find roller coasters or most rides fun.

    c) I also hate to ski and pretty much dislike anything out in the cold. 

     d) The Time Traveler's Wife is a dumb book.

     

    Oh goodness this is fun.  I could go on forever. 

  • It's not smart to announce your wife 5-week-along pregnancy on FB.  i don't care how excited you are.  This guy is a calssic FB over-sharer, and while I hope to God the pregnancy goes well, if I have to see a FB miscarriage announcement, I am going to lose it.  Seriously.  I am unstable these days.

    I can't stand people who demand that going to church is essential to becoming a "good" moral person.  There is a person at my work who says this all the time.  I don't have the nerve to tell her I never went to church, and I never will.

    You should not bring your baby to the RE's office.  And if you absolutely must (as in all other sources of childcare have some life threatening emergency to tend to) then under NO cirucmstances should you encourage it to giggle and laugh in front of infertile people (or do anything else cute).  And if you do that, don't look around the room smiling thinking you and your baby are cute.  You're not.


    This! It has happened to me twice now. Seriously, I am glad you have a baby. Would you take a moment and realize the rest of us are there because we are having trouble having a baby?!?!

    I just thought of some none IF related ones.

    a)  I don't like beer, mayo or chicken and no matter how many times you talk about how delicious they are, it doesn't make me like them

    b) I don't find roller coasters or most rides fun.

    c) I also hate to ski and pretty much dislike anything out in the cold. 

     d) The Time Traveler's Wife is a dumb book.

     

    Oh goodness this is fun.  I could go on forever. 

     Ohh I am sooooo with you on MAYO!!!! It disgusts me and my hubby LOVES it! I call it Satan's Seed!

     I can't stand Lady Gaga!  Everything about her seriously bugs the crap out of me!

    I think people should not tell me to quit the fertility treatments and just have faith in the Lord.  Really?  I'm  NOT the next Virgin Mary. 

    I think my dog Spike is cleaner, cuter, better behaved and better dressed than most people's kids!

     

    THIS!!!!!!!  Only referring to my Ziggy.  Who is actually ridiculously ill mannered.....ok, maybe I like him better than everyone else's DOG, not child.  He's kind of an a-hole, but I love him.

    HAHAHAHAHA!!!!! I LOVE that you called your dog an A hole! My husband calls Spike an A hole so much that Spikey will respond to it!!!!!

    (1)  I don't think that eating healthier makes you feel better or cleaner or lighter.  I think eating cheesecake makes you feel better as does chocolate and most cookies.

    (2)  I don't like boy bands...never have, never will.  Yes, I was alive during NKOTB; no, I don't care.  The same goes for New Edition, BSB, N Sync, the works.  I don't get it.

    Ditto...and even then I might try to hide or outwit the person/thing chasing me before I end up huffing and puffing.

    I MIGHT run if I was on fire and could see a lake in the distance.  Might.

    Another unpopular opinion: i think the airlines should have passes for frequent fliers that let them AROUND the idiot at the TSA with the belt and pager on, with the water bottle in his bag, whose wife has 60 oz of shampoo in her carryon.   have no patience for airport idiots.  I am more than willing to take my shoes off and my laptop out, etc, but PLEASE don't make me wait behind this moron.

  • Man I missed some fun posts yesterday. Might be a little late but I woke up with a cold, so I am in the mood to b!tch and moan. lol

    1. I hate Star Trek. Wish a passion.

    2. I don't care if they are my best of best friends or family... deep down I will be cursing their pregnancy unless they have experienced IF. Oh jealousy...

    3. I hate thank you cards. I hate filling them out, sending them out, and I hate recieving them. I always get them in the mail and think "ooh, is this an invitation to something!" then I get dissapointed when it's a stupid thank you card. I think it's a waste of paper and if I said "thank you" and even gave you a hug to your face, isn't that better then a stupid piece of paper??

    Yeah, you'd think that running = runner's body, but no.... 

    I've been training for a half marathon for 4.5 months (only 9 days away!!), so I've upped my running from an average of about 15 miles/week to 30+ miles per week... and lost about 3 pounds.

    WTF??? I agree that it might not be worth it! :)

  • I totally needed this yesterday.... I read it at work and was laughing so hard that I attracted everyone's attention! Thanks ladies!!

    It's a little late, but I thought of a few:

    1. I hate nearly all music made after 1989-- esp. top 40. I'm a classic rock girl through and through!

    2. I hate seeing people riding their bikes/motorcycles without helmets.

    3. I am scared of outhouses. Gives me a complex to use one.

    4. I hate it when people get water all over the bathroom counter and leave it there. Effing GROSS!!
