Sorry...I posted a post draft with just a title for about an hour this morning.  @ehomaha - No BFP.  I actually tested a little earlier than I planned and got a BFN.  I thought "maybe" I was feeling some action down there, but apparently not.  We'll see...

The incomplete post was titled "Getting successfully pregnant doesn't make you an expert on getting pregnant" designed as a bit of a rant on how quick everyone is to give advice after it happens for them. 

If you have you have any experiences getting stupid advice (albeit well-intentioned) from successful moms or moms to be post it in a comment and I'll try to include it in the post!


  1. I haven't gotten anything overly stupid but just the completely over done 'Relax, it will just happen.' I find this hilarious because if you had diabetes or a heart condition somebody wouldn't say 'Relax, it will resolve itself.'

  2. Everyone loves to give me the "just relax" - even friends who tried for well over a year and believe me, were *far* from relaxed.

  3. How about "all you have to do is put your feet up over your head. No seriously, it works." love this one!! Not.

  4. I have people telling me that I need to stop stressing. Ok people, let me quit my job and never do a thing in my house. So I'll just sit on my couch and relax all the time. It's not like all the testing and worries of TTC are stressing me out and that's the inevitable
