Whenever I tell someone I'm trying to get pregnant, the most common response is for that person to point out that "it will happen when it's the right time." Hearing this is like listening that one family member or friend who tells you the same story a dozen times, and every time asks "Have I told you this already?" But even after you nod and giggle that yes, they have, they continue on (and will inevitably bring it up next time you see them). I almost brace myself for it now. And every time I tell myself that I'm done sharing my business. I just don't understand it. Do they feel they are shedding valuable light on the issue or do they just not know what to say so they default to the old standby?
I'm sure I'm guilty of saying it to someone in my past, but I can honestly say I'll never make that mistake again! It just feels like such a slap in the face or like I'm being scolded for being anxious as if I'm trying for too much too soon. Without proper training (check back after a year of trying unsuccessfully and THEN I'll give you awkward sympathy!). As if I'm trying to fly a plane. I know the people who tell me this love me very much and don't intend for their comments to make me feel this way. Not in the least! I want to see that second line more than anything in the world right now, so I probably won't be satisfied with any response other than "damn, getting pregnant is a bitch!"
