what not to say to an infertile woman


Whenever someone says to me,"You're so lucky you dont'/can't have children.They are so expensive/tiring/demanding....etc," I give them a Stepford wife vauge smile and change the subject. Usually I fantasize about saying, "Hey just 'cause you're a lousy parent and you're kids are brats, don't assume I'd be just as bad."............. and then sometimes I think about spitting.

There may come a time when that "luck" is really lucky.

1 Luke 21:23
But woe to them that are with child, and give suck in those days; for there shall be great distress in the land, and wrath upon this people.

2 Matthew 24:19
And woe to them that are with child, and that give suck in those days.

3 Mark 13:17
And woe to them that are with child, and that give suck in those days.

That is what my mother used to tell me when I complain(ed in her presence) of being single and having no children ...
