This isn’t just some random blog about some things that maybe some people said. These statements were shared by people who had the unfortunate experience of being the person they were said to. At the very least, it’s a great reminder for myself to never give unsolicited advice and that it’s usually better to keep your mouth shut in most situations.
If you’ve been trying to conceive for any extended length of time – and if others know about (or suspect) your struggle – it is guaranteed that you’ve heard some pretty crazy, insensitive, and downright insulting comments from others about your situation. Most of the time these commenters mean well. Yet, despite their good intentions, their comments come across as completely ignorant, and leave you in the awkward position of wondering how to respond. There are tons of articles on some of the most frequent infertility advice taboos, so I’m not going to get into those. Instead, I’m going to share a few of the craziest things my infertile friends have had said to them. I’m not generally a snarky or sarcastic person, but sometimes the things that come out of people’s mouths are horrifyingly amazing. Things like:
“You’re blessed, you can’t have a bunch of S#!**% kids!”
