Irony is a Bitch

My brother and sister-in-law are pregnant.

She was on the pill.

We're gutted. The same month we loose our baby --they get a baby they weren't "trying" for.

May is gonna suck ass.

Jenny ~ Sorry you're dealing with that blow on top of everything else. I do have a question for you...what made you decide to go from IVF to IUI? Can you email me? If you don't mind, I'd like to find out more about your situation...if I can do IUI's...I'd much rather than IVF.

I'm so sorry. There is no way around it - it sucks. And when something of that nature happens in my life and I feel the same way you are feeling, my sense of guilt makes me feel even worse. But it's okay. It's okay to feel bad for yourself. ~hugs~

I'm so sorry! Talk about hitting you when you're down! If it makes you feel any better, my brother and his wife announced their third pregnancy right after a failed cycle for us, and delivered that baby a month after my m/c. It sucked!
Maybe you'll be due soon after her. I know that would help you both. Thinking of you.

Irony is true a bitch. I'm so sorry it bitch slapped you like that. I read a quote once that things that are bitter in the beginning are sweeter in the end so maybe once you get your baby it will be sweeter than you can imagine or maybe its all crap. I know IF sucks.

Sara said...

I am so sorry. IF sucks.

As if you need something like this after your loss. I am so sorry.

Tiffany said...

WHAT! How unfair! How far along are they? Why didn't they have the courtesy to wait and tell you until after your cycle? How selfish of them not to think about everything you've been through. I am so sorry.

Ugh, I am so sorry. I am waiting for that call as I know my SIL & BIL will be trying again soon and she is an uberfertile...hang in there!

Stilla Momma said...

Praying for you.

I have read the post and comments and I cannot help but leave my own. I know your SIL well and I think your comments are selfish and unfair. For the record, your SIL has walked every step of your fertility troubles with you. She has been there for you every time you have needed her. She has cried with you and for you through your ordeal. I also do not hear any mention of HER fertility issues. In all fairness, I think your readers should know that your SIL has had TWO miscarriages herself, one as recently as this July. I think it is important that you not lose sight of what your SIL has been to you and done for you over the years. I know your struggle is a tough one, I have personally walked some of this heartache but not to the extent you have, but that doesn't give you the right to blast her on a public forum and discount all she has been to you. Perhaps the rudest of all is to say that next May is going to, as you put it, "suck ass." How could the birth of a child EVER "suck ass"??? Seriously, if you cannot keep your focus on Jesus, the least you could do is take it off of yourself every once in awhile. I hope that you find success with your IUI, I truly do. The bitterness and pain is eating you up and it is incredibly unhealthy.

Well I have never blogged before and probably never will again but as the husband of the blogger and having read Leslie's comments, I must say something. I appreciate that Leslie doesn't know the whole picture, so, I need to clear a few things up. Firstly my wife and I love our sister in law very much she is very very special to us. Leslie's comment about the baby being born would suck ass was taken and twisted. Obviously my wife and I are going to love the baby with all out hearts. Just as we love our nephew but we should of been having a baby at the same time and of course that will be bitter sweet. We would never wish that our sister in law wasn't pregnant. The point of this blog is to work through emotions and yes vent a little at life's ups and downs. Secondly on our sister in laws infertility issues: well this is my wife's blog where she discuses her issues and probably would not want to discus someone elses fertility issues. Thirdly I don't see where you get that my wife blasted anybody. She said we were gutted that someone had gotten pregnant who wasn't trying. It's ironic to say the least. And yes, May is gonna suck ass not because we have a new niece or nephew but because we should of had a baby and don't because we lost it. So Leslie before you get the urge for another round of bloggers diarrhea I suggest you maybe think and reread the comments your replying to I appreciate you know our sister in law but we are a very close family and this will not come between us emotions are running a little high maybe but no ill feelings were meant to members of our family who we love dearly. - Harry
