>:( I just heard the most ignorant response to my infertility problems I've heard yet....

I was talking to my aunt (who has no children and nevered desired a child). She said to me, "Well don't get all worked up if you can't have a baby because think of all the freedom you'd have without a child & how much money you'd save". She said, "I'm sitting here reading a magazine now, and when I'm done I can read a book, and you wouldn't have that freedom when you have a child. Plus, you can't travel." Then she said, "you'd save so much money if you didn't have a kid b/c they are extremely expensive. So, don't worry if you can't have kids because there's a lot of benefits to not having kids."

I didn't know what to say at first, I was dumb founded that someone could be so inconsiderate and rude!

I am just tired of everyone telling me to be positive. No one was more positive than me going into my last IVF. Look what happened again! I am going to smack the next person who tells me to be positive!

Silli,

You are truly a rock ! I find myself so drawn to your posts because you've gone through so much and are still truckin' . Your story touched me deeper than most this morning perhaps it's one of my moody days that my hubby too is sooooooo exhausted with.

I wish you all the best in this agonizing path in life we've chosen to take.

And remember kick scream cry or yell do what you must to stay so human Because you are BEAUTIFUL ! ;)
