You know when someone says she's been eating/doing something out of the ordinary, people will assume that she's knocked up? Example:
A: I've been eating crocodile burger for three days
B: Is there something you're not telling me? *insert grin*
I didn't realize until now that it's kinda inappropriate and somewhat insensitive, especially when B knows that A has been TTC. What if A isn't pregnant? Don't you think that the assumption would be a tad depressing to A? Forget a tad. A lot depressing. Unless A is really pregnant and tells you so, in which case a grin would not be an acceptable reaction. Come on girl, bring out the sparkling apple juice!
Come on people. As if TTC isn't hard enough without people making assumptions and sticking their noses where they shouldn't be. I realize that often times when people do this, it's because that person is excited for that TTC gal. But be clever about it. Have some empathy. Always, always put yourself in the other person's shoes. I know this because I've been guilty of this crime myself on a couple of occasions. Now that I've heard someone do this to someone else and feeling depressed for that person knowing that she's not pregnant, I'm gonna stop doing it myself. Hey, the first step towards recovery is admission, right?
So let's be intelligently supportive towards our TTC friends ok? And with that, have a good week ahead!
