Motherhood after Infertility and Parenting a child with ASD

Do I have a sign on my forehead…


… that says: “PLEASE tell me about your pregnancy/your daughter’s pregnancy”?

I swear, I must attract these people. There has got to be something that I am emitting that alerts people to me being infertile which in turn has them tell me about their pregnancy or a relative’s pregnancy. A not-so-close co-worker called me today to discuss about something work related and after that was done she asked if she could tell me a secret… um, sure? Well her daughter is getting married a month from today and they found out two weeks ago that she is preggo. Great. Wonderful. Shoot me in the fucking head. 

She was apparently on antibiotics and her BCP’s failed. Isn’t that sweet? Seriously, a round right to the head would be great. I acted excited for her and asked all the appropriate questions but all I could do was think ‘is this really happening right now? I can’t even get away from this shit at work?’

I am totally symptom spotting which is driving me bat-shit crazy. I am trying to ignore everything but that is just impossible. Totally impossible.

  1. Totally unnecessary information to tell anyone about. Ugh. Sorry girl.
