Does anyone have any tricks or ways to deal with a typical infertile’s reaction to pregnancy announcements, especially those who conceive by accident or never have any problems?

We got a Christmas card from close friends of ours today signed X, Y, Toddler, and Baby. Um, thanks for the surprise! Maybe I’ll be able to congratulate you when my irrational rage dies down and I don’t feel like I was hit in the head with a baseball bat anymore.

  1. I’m dying to know the answer to this one. I saw one too many announcements on FB this year. After I have an emotional breakdown, I close me eyes and think of how I will make our announcement. I get excited. I think about the big reveal. The moment. The excitement. Hang in there. Try to get caught up in your journey and don’t let others still the shine.

  2. Know how you feel. We seem to have had more than our fair share of congratulating our friends and family in the past 2 years. One memorable one this year when I went to congratulate them and they went on to say how hard it was for them, how after their struggle of 3 months….

  3. I know… At that stage we were 19-20 months… We’re now at 24 months and she’s due late next month… To be honest, with each announcement, I take a step back to take a breath, put a smile on my face and sincerely give them the congratulations they deserve… ‘Do unto others as you would have them do unto you…’ I know I’m gonna have my turn and at least I can be a little more sensitive and understanding…
