Re: What to say to nosy people

We tried for 6+ years to get pregnant with DD2. But, through the whole thing, I was 100% entirely open and honest when anyone asked anything. IF they were rude comments from strangers or almost strangers, I had absolutely no qualms about making them feel terrible.

For example, I was at my oldest's soccer game once and was discussing kids with another mom. She asked if DD was my only and I said yes. She then made some rude comment about not being a "real" parent with only one. I proceeded to make her feel about 2 inches tall by responding that actually she wasn't an only by our choice and that we had been trying for 4 years and had just had a failed IUI attempt a month ago that had us pretty upset and that we weren't sure we could afford to continue fertility treatments. All she could do was mumble "sorry" and that was about it.
