When I was trying to get pregnant, someone – who shall remain nameless – said I should paint my bedroom yellow for good Feng Shui and I’d get pregnant.


Also not helpful:

  • Everything happens for a reason 
  • Maybe it wasn’t meant to be 
  • Just relax and you’ll get pregnant 
  • At least you know you can get pregnant
  • Anecdote about a friend who adopted and then got pregnant  

I believe that most people are well meaning, and they say these things in an attempt to be supportive. It’s still not okay.  

I encourage you to share this with someone who might need to hear it.
