    Sorry for the kinda negative post, I was trying to be positive from now on about ttc until my sister called me "barren Karen" !!! :-(

    This has really upset me and even welling up now thinking about it. She's the only one apart from OH obviously that I have told and wish I didn't now. Am I just being too sensitive!?

    Makes me glad I got this place and you sensible/thoughtful girls to talk to about stuff! xx

    Aww it's an insensitive comment, but that's how sisters always are. Tell her how upset you were and she'll understand and feel awful I'm sure. Stay strong xxx

    I can see why you're upset, it's a really insensitive thing to say. But I think people who haven't been through unsuccessfully ttc don't know what it feels like and can't understand how hard it is. Don't let it get to you too much x x x

    OMG!! That is more than insensitive - it is downright nasty!! Ouch! I hope she realised as soon as she said it and apologised!

    I would be devastated if my sis said that to me!

    Hope she is making it up to you lady!!

    I agree with Milly, it is a nasty thing to say, i'm not sure why anybody would say that especially your sister, it's not something to joke about. I hope she apologised to you hun xx

    No, no apology. She was laughing so I just laughed if off too. Prob should have burst out crying in her face lol and see what she did!

    Ive already cried in front of her about ttc before, and she knows how long ive been trying so not sure why she would say that, whether its a joke or not.

    Some people eh!? Oh well, onwards and upwards.... :roll:

    From one 'barren Karen' to another .... my sister says some cruel things too. Rise above it hun and move on, I've learnt to ignore it when my sis says things to me but it still hurts deep down xx

    Oh GOD. I HATE when ppl think they have some sort of special insight into life because they have kids! Really drives me mad! In fact, sometimes I think it has a narrowing effect on peoples views x
