[ - ] Most embarrassing thing happened to me tonight. Was having dinner with DH and 3 other couples. Two of the other women are pregnant and the other couple has a DB. They spent the longest time talking about how wonderful pregnancy is and how much they already love their babies and how fantastic being a parent is. They were talking to me like I needed convincing and this was their brand-new discovery. "You should really have a baby!" "Motherhood is the greatest - you will love being pregnant!" The thing is, I can't have kids biologically. We might adopt but it will take a while. After an hour of this I started crying and left the table. It was horrible. 39 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]
