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.
