What is the deal with the word "bitter"? — The Bump
Trying to Get Pregnant

What is the deal with the word "bitter"?

It is always that word that makes people so angry. What gives? Of all the names someone could call me and of all the names I have seen some people call others on this board, bitter seems the least offensive. Who really cares if someone thinks you are bitter/jealous? I am sure we all have been at some point during the TTC journey anyhow. Just always wondered why the use of the word always leads to a heated argument.

Re: What is the deal with the word "bitter"?

  • I think its because its almost always used in connection with someone not being pregnant, or not having conceived quickly. I know I'm not pregnant and I don't need someone throwing something that is totally beyond my control back in my face as if its a failure, or something I could change.

    Or that you are only calling someone out because you don't have a baby, regardless of how ridiculous the called out party is acting. 


    Yep. I love how not being warm and fuzzy is suddenly synonymous with bitter. ::insert eyeroll::

    I don't expect anything less though!

    I wouldn't be good for you right now. We'd eat fried food, cheetos, and wine. And dogs would jump on you. &nbsp;
