It helps you to cope with your misery by talking to others about it.

It took us 5 years, one MC, and 2 failed adoptions before we conceived our boys via IVF. We announced our pregnancy on Thanksgiving... I remember how miserably sick I was. Didn't help that the "best" nausea med they gave me contained Aspartame, which I'm allergic to (causes migraines and -wait for it- NAUSEA).

I complained ALL. THE. FREAKIN. TIME. about being sick. Our journey was long, and I'm grateful for my babies, but I have no guilt admitting that I HATE being pregnant. Absolutely detest it.

Yes. A thousand times, yes.

Omg. Talk about wanting to give her a lashing. So all this comes out on family vacation in march. So all us siblings told her she had to freaking have sex! So she did. Got preggo. So now it's been 8 months.. And that's the LAST time they did it.

At her shower, so many people came up to her 'I know you've wanted this baby so badly' wtf. Wanted? Really?? Tried hard?? Wth. While I secretly went to fertility doctors and suffered in silence. I still rage a lot about it. You are NOT trying if you have sex once a year. I am sorry.
She sounds like a loon.

Parenting consistently and in love is all the matters. Your label or philosophy won't raise good children, your example will.
