I had that same question from another child too- but I was only 20 when I got it- so I say we just chalk it up to a child's perspective being off!  lol!

I did. I got the rudest comment ever. I was seeking expert's help at that time after years ttc with no success. We ttc with my ex partner for 13 mons with no luck, so I asked to visit dr. But he didn't want and soon left me. We came back to the question again with dh and realized there were not so many compassionate people around as expected. I'll never forget the first time I saw the expert telling her my previous story and that I had trouble ttc for years up to that time. And guess what I've heard! ''You must have thought about kids years ago, luv!!'' I was shocked and speechless and could hardly resist bursting into tears. What an absolute b**ch!! Since that episode I'd never been open with people about our problems. The only safe place for me to vent were some infertility boards with people going through the same thing-- ivf treatments. It was always easier for me to hide behind the screen when sharing worries and experiences with others. Time flew and I don't take any sort of comments to personally if even they happen to appear. I'm feeling more comfident with that now. I'm a happy prego woman waiting for baby#1 after 2 ivf rounds abroad and this is the only thing which matters for me now. All the best to you and your families, lovelies!

I'm so sorry you ran into that in a place that should be helpful!  That is very disappointing!  :(

Congrats on baby #1 on the way- do you know what you are having?  When is your due date?
