We always say how we can never talk about htis stuff IRL to most people. Well, I had my 10 yr college reunion this weekend. My good friend, who I haven't talked to in forever (a couple of years!), mentioned while we were having lunch that she and her husband have been ttc since they were married a year ago. She had been warned while we were in college that it may be difficult for her because of an ovarian cyst removed back then.

We got to talking and before we knew it we were talking BBT, CM and Bd-ing talk, right in the middle of the restaurant. At one point we had to stop and make sure no one was listening because we were getting so graphic. We are going to keep on talking as we go through Clomid and whatever else they throw our way to help us out (AI, In-Vitro, etc.).

It was great to see her, but even greater to have a TTC buddy that I know so well!

Isn't that nice? When you find someone you know well who is going through it at the same time?

I have a friend who just started ttc - so not quite to the stage I am at now (here on cycle 14!!!) but it is nice to be able to talk to someone about the nuttiness of it all.

That is cool!!

Very cool.

I have started talking more openly about it with people IRL.

At first when we started TTC we had this romantic idea of totally surprising everyone....making a big announcement and having people say “I didn’t even know you were trying. Blah, blah, blah.”

When we got into the fourth cycle and then my last doozy of a cycle…I just found myself telling more people. It's been comforting for me to talk to my friends about it and I'm learning that many people I know, who are now parents, had trouble TTC.

My college roommate and I got in touch a couple of weeks ago. I knew they had been TTC for a while and I wanted to tell her that we were too. It was really nice to talk about it with her but yesterday she e-mailed to tell me she is preg.

I’m VERY happy for her, but it hit me really hard that she's pregnant and I'm not.
