This from my coworker today, just as my day was kicking off to an awesome start. I started my period today. Someone really has a sense of humor to give a gal TTC her period on Mother's Day. This is Trina by the way. I don't remember how to log in to my own sign in name. I'm just so frustrated with talking to people who have no clue what this is like. So many times, I've heard, "Well, if you can't get pregnant, you can still adopt" or, "You can just let Robbie birth the children." People have no idea how important the actual experiences of pregnancy and birth are to me. Am I really the only one who feels so strongly about this, or is it just that they were 16 and didn't have to try for a year or more to make babies? And seriously, if one more person tells me I look pregnant because I've gained so much weight, I'm gonna hurt them.
So, I know I generally leave the blogging to Robbie. She's waaaaaay funnier. Plus, I've been feeling pretty negative. Not much fun to read. But Robbie keeps telling me I need to talk to people who have empathy, and not the idiots I work with who seem to enjoy hurting me. So here I am.
Happy Mother's Day to those of you this applies to. The rest of you, I'm feeling your pain.
