Hello Everyone.

I believe people have to find someway of handling the insensitive remarks. We are confronted throughout our lives by people who have little thought or understanding for the feelings of others.

I am sure sometimes comments are made out of fear or because there is pain in their own lives they are not handling well. The need to hurt people may come from inner conflict or a sheer lack of understanding of how words hurt rather than outright nastiness.

I wonder if there is one person in the office with whome you could confide in? By articulating your hurt, you may help to create an aptmoshpere of care rather than critism.
Please be strong in yourself. There are people who understand the pain and hurt you are experiencing.

If I were still dealing with infertility (I'm much older now, and at a different place in my life), I would have found this post rather offensive. I am an agnostic, a CANNOT "just believe" and even if I were a believer, I would not be able to believe in a deity that was so cruel as to give babies to some who abuse and kill their children, while withholding them from parents who would be loving, caring parents. God has nothing to do with it.

As an agnostic, married to an atheist, I still managed, with the help of my infertility doctor, to conceive and maintain one pregnancy, my very dear son.

I wish all who are trying to conceive, whatever your belief system, the very best, but remember -- it isn't a matter of fault, blame, action or inaction (well, okay, other than the obvious! Certain actions are kind of required.... ;-)) Even for the normal fertile population, there is only a 20% chance per cycle.

I'm pulling for you!

Hello: I'm the conception site editor, so some of our topics overlap. I know the feeling of working with a bunch of women who are pregnant when I wished I were, and just how painful it is to listen to them. I chalked it up to immaturity on the part of a lot of those women--they never stopped to think that others may be having a rough time. I don't have a good answer for what to do except protect yourself. If you're invited to a baby shower, don't feel obligated to go! I didn't. If someone can't stop talking about her pregnancy, excuse yourself and go to the bathroom for a while. There is nothing wrong with protecting yourself and your emotional health...in fact, it's essential.

There may be situations you have to avoid if people won't stop asking you about it! I always say that if people can't behave, then I won't play in their sandbox! But good luck to everybody in this painful situation.
