I didn't know where else to vent about this.. and I'm sorry most of my posts have been vents lately.
I asked two friends to do a mud run with me near Pittsburg http://www.mudonthemountain.com/, it's 7 miles and requires some training (at least on my part), so I asked two of my friends who I know would be up for it to train with me. The event is in May 2013. Both, BOTH of my friends responses 'Sorry, I plan on being pregnant then".. They both have a young child and we were TTC around the same time in 2011, they both know of our struggles. I'm trying to put TTC behind me and just move on and let God's will be. I just don't understand why would you say that to someone.. Sigh.. I just feel like I need new friends sometimes.
On another occasion, just this past Friday night, we were out with some friends and were introduced to new people at the table. DH & I were the only married couple and once this douche found out we've been married for almost 4 years he blurts out of no where "I give you 6 months until you're pregnant". What?! Excuse me? Hi, do I know you? After his outburst I politely warned him to drop the subject (mind you, this was the first time I met this man), he wouldn't drop the topic about US being pregnant. DH finally told the guy to shut up.. I then told him (and our table) that we can't seem to get pregnant, but thanks anyway.
Our friends at the table didn't know we have been TTC and felt awful about the whole night. I wish we never went.
What is wrong with people? I know I am more naive then most but still..
I am going back to school in the fall to finish my degree and putting TTC on hold during this time. I'm excited about this change and new adventure. This is the first time I've been a "victim" of ignorant people's comments regarding this topic and it just really ticked me off. I guess I need thicker skin sometimes.
DD's mom knows of our TTC issues and she has been really supportive, she's been threw it and knows how hurtful these comments are. DH has also been a tremendously supportive right now, I am so thankful for both of them. Anyway, thanks for letting me vent.
