discouring parents.

I want to start out by saying sry that im kinda venting but here it goes. So my DH nd I have been TTC for the past year and both my parents and his parents are very happy for us. But today I was talking to my mother and she said that because in the past my husband and I have had some problems, just like everyone else that maybe our house isnt a healthy enviroment for raising childern. She apoligized shortly after saying that what she said was out of line but still im a little hurt. Yes My Dh and I have had problems but we have gotten past them and are a better couple for it. Dah I probably wouldnt be so sensitive if we hadnt been trying already for a year its just so hard to see our friends having kids and not us, then put that lovely comment on top of it. Im sorry for venting like this to you all but I thought you might understand, thanks for listening and for any kind words of encouragment.

Please don't apologize for venting... that's what we're here for!

I'm so sorry she said such a hurtful thing to you. Some people just don't think when they say things about others who are TTC. You have a right to feel upset and hurt, but try not to dwell on it...unfortunately it seems like it's part of the journey of TTC - people try to say things that they think might help or make us feel better, but ultimately they either hurt us more or only make themselves feel better.

I wish you all the luck with your TTC journey... and I pray that it's a short one. Just remember, everyone has problems, but our problems are that: OURS, not our families. Only you know what's in your heart, and only you know how much you're willing to put up with. If this is what you want, and what you feel is right... follow it. It'll all work itself out in the end. :)
