Things That Annoy Infertile Girls (Or Maybe Just Me?)

  • Accidental Pregnancies - So I have been trying for years to get pregnant, you go slut around and accidentally get pregnant?  
  • Immediate Pregnancies - You quit taking your birth control last month and now you are pregnant?  
  • People Who Give You Retarded Advice -
           - Just stop trying and you will get pregnant
           - My friend adopted a baby and got pregnant right away, you should do that
           - Get drunk, people always get pregnant when they are drunk (Yes, they      
             do. Because they are intoxicated and forget to take precautions.)
  • Whiny Girls That Pretend They Are Infertile - Trying for 5 months is not suffering  from infertility.  It takes a year on average to get pregnant


  • Stupid Pregnancy Announcements on Facebook



  • Pregnant Girls That Don't Research Pregnancy - If you are having a baby, and I can't, at least have the decency to care about your pregnancy and birth OK?
  • People That Have Kids And Are Awful Parents - I am not one of those people that thinks you should have to have a license to breed.  But seriously, if you are giving your kid a baby bottle with soda in it and letting your 2 year old climb up the shelves at Wal-Mart, I can't help but think "Seriously, you can reproduce and I can't?!?!"
  • Pregnancy Tests - Because they are ALWAYS negative, but sometimes you just can't help yourself.

  1. Although I currently am what I call "An Infertile Pregnant" (pregnant after almost 3 years of trying and after my third IVF), I couldn't agree MORE with this post. All these things STILL annoy me!!! So, in a word: AMEN SISTER!

  4. It took us a short time to get pregnant with our first (6 months) which I know is not considered abnormal but everyone around me was getting instantly pregnant (including my younger sibling and his wife). I can tell you that it hurt and I shared all the same hurts and frustrations you listed. But it's only a glimpse of the pain I know you are going through.

  5. That would really suck! It seems like the more you want to be pregnant the more other people get pregnant!

  6. as someone who has gotten pregnant every time she ovulated, but not been able to carry so far. I can say it is very annoying to have people tell you to just take fertility meds, especially if you are working with your doctor on getting it fixed naturally. some of us are only in this boat because birth control messed us up more, instead of fixing it. love your post, spot on!

  7. We have three beautiful children here on earth and 1 sweet boy in heaven. Getting pregnant did not come "naturally" to my body with our two girls, it tooks years with each. Both of our boys were "surprises" We were not trying and we figured we most likely would not get pregnant again since our girls were hard to concieve and I have very hard pergnancies with both. Our oldest son died sometime between 14 and 16 weeks gestation and youngest son is a busy 13 month old now. Losing a child was the hardest thing I have ever had to go through, even though I never held him in my arms. But I can only imagine the pain of longing for a child you may never concieve. Praying for you!!

Things That Annoy Infertile Girls (or Maybe Just Me?) - Flashback Friday

This was actually one of my more popular posts when it was first published, but I still thought I would share it again.  Any additions to the post are in pink, as usual :)

Review - Seven Everyday Slings

I got this sling because it was free, I only had to pay shipping.  Since I bought it, I have found out that it is VERY easy to find codes for this to be free, and I am pretty sure that if you ever pay full price for one you got duped.

I was SO excited.  I wanted a baby carrier really bad.  I didn't have a baby, but I am always collecting baby things.

In case you were thinking that I only review things that I like, I HATE THIS SLING! 

I have used it with tiny babies, older babies, and toddlers. 

Pros:
- Adorable, and available in a variety of colors
- Lightweight and compact, you can easily throw it in a diaper bag or purse
- Works from birth - 35 lbs


Cons:
- Terrifying to use with small babies.  They sink down in it, and its almost impossible to keep them from having their chin tucked to their chest, which is a huge no-no in baby carrying.  Basically when I had Cooper in it as an infant I spent the entire trip to the park making sure he was still breathing, then I started sticki…

Is Mother Goose Time Worth The Money?

Last night my husband asked me if I thought that Mother Goose Time was worth the money if I didn't get it for free.  I think this is an excellent question, and one that people probably want to know.

How Much Does It Cost?:
Mother Goose Time costs $75 a month for one child, including shipping if you buy it month to month.  If you can order and pre-pay ahead of time, you can save up to 15%, depending on how far ahead you pre-pay.  If you have more than one child using the curriculum it is only about $5 a month to add a child.  Many of the products provided cover the entire class, including manipulatives and story books.  The things that each child needs come packaged in their own bag for each child.

What I Think of the Curriculum:
The curriculum is great.  It is thorough and engaging.  It provides me with ideas and supplies to teach my son things I never would have thought to teach him, but will make him a very well rounded person.  He now talks about things he never would have talked…
