So there’s this girl I work with, she’s lots of fun and we’re starting to become good friends. Her son is 8, and she has a lot of Doctor’s appointments. A joint friend we have mentioned that she is seeing Dr. H – my RE – and that he gave her suppositories but she misunderstood and took them by mouth (total invasion of privacy and I told our joint friend that)…BUT….she’s seeing an RE, she’s taking suppositories….doesn’t that sound like fertility treatments?
I know it’s none of my business, but this would be my first in real life friend going through fertility treatments and I
can’t help it if I want to grab onto her and cling for dear life really want to make that connection. Problem is we’re not that close yet, and maybe she doesn’t want to be infertile friends anyway – I don’t want to seem disrespectful of her privacy in any way. I’m not going to ask her about it or make team IF t-shirts or anything – but I want to subtly bring up the topic at some point just to see if she’s willing to share her experience. I’m hesitant to share mine just yet because it’s not common knowledge, and I’m worried I’m wrong about her and I don’t want to fall flat on my face like I did last time I tried to share.
So – IF peeps…how do you make infertile friends?
