Allowed to feel

I told you that I would share more about my fertility journey in another post, so here it goes. Have you ever had someone whom you didn’t know very well whether it be a stranger, or someone you’ve only met once or twice come up to you and confront you? Like you don’t even know the person that well, but they decide to ask you about your personal life? I think it’s happened to all of us, but let me tell you my side of the story. A few weeks ago, Marcus and I were attending a party together, and we had our dogs with us. Now I’m not going to name names or mention where this all takes place for the sake of privacy. Anyway, as I’m standing around minding my own business, this guy walks up to me and asks in a very straightforward way “So where’s your baby?” As I mentioned before, we had Toby and Shatzie with us on this specific occasion, but we had put them inside seeing as the noises from the party were making them nervous. Thinking that this guy meant our dogs because we consider them our babies, my response was “Oh they are inside, the noises are making them nervous.” Pretty honest answer right? Wrong. He then has the audacity to touch my shoulder and go “No. I mean your KIDS. Why aren’t you pregnant yet.” Mind you I’ve met this guy ONCE prior to this. I was so stunned and didn’t know what to say. Thankfully someone very near and dear to me walked up and saved the day, and I thank her for that. Now let me address something here. NOBODY, AND I MEAN NOBODY HAS THE RIGHT TO ASK YOU SUCH A QUESTION OR EVEN ANYTHING CLOSE IF IT IS NONE OF THEIR BUSINESS!!! I mean who was this guy to even try and pry into Marcus and I’s personal business which he knew nothing about?! Ladies, you ARE allowed to be sensitive about it if it hurts you. You ARE allowed to feel! Trying to get pregnant, or in my case trying to make my body okay enough to get pregnant is HARD. This journey sucks sometimes because of all we go through. I understand what it’s like. I got you! Anyway, the whole point of this post was to let you know you aren’t alone in this. Thank you so much for your love and support as always. Much love.
