I promise I'll update tonight with my month of gratitude, but I just had to vent first....
I have this friend, who I'm not really that close to anymore but because of FB we are obviously caught up on each others' lives.
Her story, they very sadly and unfortunately had 2 miscarriages when they were married 12 years ago. After suffering with infertility for 4 years, they sought help with Dr. H at the PPVI and by the grace of God, the surgery to get rid of her endo was a success and they had their first baby boy 8 years ago!
Then, 2 years after that they had their next son (I think she took progesterone).
Then 2 years later they had their next son-not sure if meds were involved here.
Then, just as they had before (their ideal 2 years apart), they had their 4th son.
He's only 1.5 and even though they've successfully gotten pregnant when "planned" she will still talk openly in FB about her infertility. Like today, this:
I specifically remember when her littlest one turned 1 in June that she posted for prayers for her in regards to her IF because they were desperately starting to try for #5 again.
That was 5 months ago people!
I know that the pains of IF will linger long after babies are (God willing) in our arms, but I get frustrated seeing this because there are quite a few people that I know who have struggled for years (hello we were one of them!!!) that are friends with her on FB and seeing statuses like this stings.
One of our mutual friends actually, who I am really close with, has told me that she's told her that since they have "planned" out the timing of their 4 sons, to talk about still suffering with IF is probably not appropriate especially since there are so many still suffering.
Ugh-it's just so hard to look past this especially because I know she's aware of at least three couples who are currently battling the cross of IF.
Okay, okay...now that I've vented I hope y'all don't think I'm a horrible person for getting so bothered by this, but she's done this in the past, while we were still TTC, and it hurt then and now it just bothers me.
I need to get over it...hoping now that I've vented and typed it out I can stop being annoyed.
