You waited too long.
Yep, probably right about that. But I didn't meet The One until I was in my mid 30's, wasn't financially stable, craving to have a baby in a tiny apartment and oh, yeah, didn't get married until I was 38. What could I have done differently? (I thought about that a lot, trust me.) Wait a minute, I should have been somebody else!
You are over 40.....
Doctors love that one. I know how old I am, doc, thanks for reminding me but using that phrase over and over when I'm paying you thousands of dollars to help me start a family, is only twisting the knife.
I guess you were not meant to have children.
Not meant to according to whom? I guess not. C'est la vie. Whatever will be, will be. Fuck you.
Tertia did an absolute brilliant post about http://tertia.typepad.com/so_close/2004/05/how_to_be_good_.html this and more. Mail it to your good friends, I did. She's brilliant.
You're not going to cry every month when you get your period, are you?
No, just right now when I'm confiding in you my deepest, darkest feelings. I won't make this mistake again.
And finally, You're pregnant, right? (Pointing at my belly)
No, those are fibroids and/or fat on top of the fibroids. Or maybe it's just plain ole' fat. Thanks for ruining my day. Are you gonna eat that?
