I am finally preggo w/ twins after years of struggling with infertility. We used embryo donors with an FET cycle, which was successful.
I've been hesitant to talk about preggo symptoms with anyone, because I'm afraid they'll have the attitude of "you went to all this trouble to get preggo and you're complaining??" We'll, I thought i was safe to open up to my mom. I told her I thought it was funny that another preg woman said being preggo is like being hungover everyday in the 1st tri. And one of my books mentioned that frat boys have nothing on pregnant women when it comes to gas. I was totally just making small talk, not complaining.
She replied "we'll, this is what you wanted." When I got a little upset with her, she told me not to read too much into it.
If you're preggo through fertility treatments, how did you handle comments like that? I feel like just closing off all convo when people ask "how are you feeling?" at this point.
I just think it's a bit biased that we've spent bundles of money to grow our family, while women who are blessed enough to conceive w/o help have the "okay" to share 1st tri woes freely w/o judgment.
Sorry for the rant. Just looking for support....
