Boycott Facebook!

Yes, I am having the same problem many infertiles have...Facebook is not our friend. Facebook is where our friends post adorable pics of their kids. I admit, I do too. I will post pics of my 3 year old, but it is those baby pics that really get me right now. I have one friend who will post pics daily of her baby. Now I am not one to judge (oh, hell, of course I am!)--but everyday. That seems a bit much, don't you think? I mean, don't get me wrong, this baby is adorable, but find a hobby, go for a walk, do something not on Facebook please! When I see these baby pics all I think is, that is supposed to be me from my last three (failed) frozen embryo transfers! And yet, it is not me.
That's it! Why should I have to boycott Facebook? Why don't these women who are so damn lucky to have babies take a break from their daily postings? Why do we, the infertiles, need to constantly be the ones making changes and altering our lives? We do it to our bodies with pills, injections, suppositories, tests, etc. Why can't it be someone else for once? Don't we deserve a break?
and i force myself to like every status... and try not to covet

  4. Amen!! AMEN! Seriously I couldn't agree more. I post pics of my daughter all the time, but not a play by play of her every day!
