What NOT to say to someone trying for a baby

Standard
  • It’ll happen if you just relax
  • It takes time
  • Well I know someone who took years to get pregnant
  • Oh my sister only took a couple of months
  • Have you tried….. (yes and more!)
  • Take these vitamins/herbs/foods so and so got pregnant doing that
  • You should be lucky you don’t need IVF
  • You should be lucky you can ttc some can’t
  • You should be lucky you have kids already I have none
  • Why are you getting so upset
  • It’s not the end of the world if doesn’t happen
  • Kids are annoying anyway… get a dog/cat/bunny instead
  • They only grow up
  • Don’t try it’ll happen (ermmmmmmmm)
  • Give up that’s when it’ll happen
  • Stop thinking about it (ever tried to tell yourself the sky isn’t blue? you don’t believe yourself do you?)

Yes people say stupid stupid things. yes people think they have the solution and yes they are prob right about the first one but have you ever tried to not lick your lips after a doughnut? It’s nearly impossible! So is relaxing purely because someone said to do so.

Best way to help is comfort them, tell them you have hope it’ll happen for them and they should keep going because you are right there for them!
