    Don't worry about it. Some people believe in a fatal sense of destiny, like they do not have control. I don't think they meant it to be hurtful, just their belief. I am of the belief that you do not have to be a biological parent to be a parent. It have had several friends go through varying forms of infertility. Don't give up. The hard ones are when one spouse will not go and even find out if they have a problem.

    I'm sorry you were hurt, Beks. I would be too in your shoes. I tend to just roll my eyes at comments like that...mauimagic is right about them not being worth the energy.

    You will be a parent some day--soon, I hope--and a good one at that

    Really think that negative energy doesn't deserve energy. Unless I get caught up in it, I can usually just let it go - and not let it interfere with my life and my direction.

    I'm so sorry that it caught your heart, it's very painful.

    Please surround yourself with light and love - we're sending it your way!!

    Thank you for this blog post. I too found this comment insensitive, but could not find the words to deal with it.

    I'm sorry beks..I read that also, but I tend to skip over comments that attribute everything to God.

    That is about as sensitive a subject as SAHM - v-WOHM's Y/k? I try not to get involved in comments about either.

    Doesn't sound like a fund decision to have to make!

    We've had to make decisions like this and frequently there's an aspect or two we didn't know or consider we think of, later. If you do this, remember to remind yourself that hindsight is always 20/20!

    Good wishes!

    This is a quandry, but you seem to have a good approach to the pros and cons. The nice thing is that whatever you decide - you are making the choice, it is not being made for you - that is powerful. Choose where you want to go!!

    That would also depend on how secure your dh's job is.

    Good luck with your decision.

    I need to do "Operation Clean House" too. Maybe we should start a boot camp for it! I can be your first member!

    I've been sick too and haven't been to the gym in a week, and I feel guilty...but sometimes you just can't push your body!

    Me and my size 12 butt are jealous that you can fit into a 6!
