Upsetting words

After having sat out my last two cycles (because the acupuncturist said they could not possibly work - and having spent a small fortune on acupuncture), I am finally getting ready to plant the magic seed again! (and of course Sage is still not completely weaned) We are down to just 3 times a day!

My mother is staying with us.  She arrived uninvited for Christmas (I did invite her to come either before christmas - or January), but no, so things are a tad stressful.

I got particularly upset when I related to my mother that the palm reader had told me I would be giving birth before the next year is out and she said "well anyway I don't think it makes any difference to me if you have a boy or a girl, because I most likely won't be here (i.e. alive) anyway."  and continued "don't you think it's really irresponsible for you to have another child when you have absolutely no-one to rely on should you get sick.

Many hours spent crying.


  1. She's projecting. It's about her - not you! Sorry this is how you're spending the holiday.

  2. Ouch! Sorry your Christmas won't be how you wanted.

  3. Big hugs. And I agree, she is talking about herself. In the end I am sure she will be thrilled with news of another pregnancy. Keep your chin up, this process is hard enough without negativity!
