Funny Poem about infertility comments

I just found this online and its funny because it's so true! I know all you TTC girls can relate!

You're 37? Don't you think that maybe
It's time you settled down and had a baby?
No wine? Does this mean happy news? I knew it!
Hey, are you sure you two know how to do it?
All Dennis has to do is look at me
And I'm knocked up.
Some things aren't meant to be. It's sad, but try to see this as God's will.
I've heard that sometimes when you take the Pill--
A friend of mine got pregnant when she stopped
Working so hard. Why don't you two adopt?
You'll have one of your own then, like my niece.
At work I heard about this herb from Greece--
My sister swears by dong quai. Want to try it?
Forget the high-tech stuff. Just change your diet.
It's true! Too much caffeine can make you sterile.
Yoga is good for that. My cousin Carol--
They have these ceremonies in Peru--
You mind my asking, is it him or you?
Have you tried acupuncture? Meditation?
It's in your head. Relax! Take a vacation
And have some fun. You think too much. Stop trying.
Did I say something wrong? Why are you crying?

Just reading your post, my stomach muscles are tight from my memory of recent and past conversations...I got the same comments relating to the death of my son.

Sad.

Yea that is so true!!! I had family members asking me the whole time "Why don't you two have a baby already!!?". We didn't tell anyone we were TTC to avoid the pressure, but you still get those nosey comments that strike at your heart. My favorite was my tax preparer "If you two would just have a baby you could get a good tax break!" It's like 'who do you think you are? You don't know me'

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
