Most of these women I have been friends with for years. They know my struggle. They also have a right to be happy. I do not expect women to stop getting pregnant just because I can't. What I find most ironic is that the women I have been friends with that have come to me with their infertility struggles are the worst offenders of a noxious level of posts.
At first I thought they were the "worst offenders" because I was more sensitive since they had "had infertility" then jumped ship to the fertile club. After giving it way more thought then I ever should I've realized that for some reason the pain of infertility escapes those former sufferers the moment they get the BFP. One woman literally posts a biweekly baby bump picture and posts 1-2X per day something pregnancy related. Another woman when her son was 1 year old had posted more pictures in one month then I had posted of Baby Girl in her first six months (yes I counted them). My count included the daily pictures I posted when she was in the hospital since I had little to no communication with family/friends since I was not allowed to use the phone unless I was not in the NICU. I never left the NICU unless I HAD to eat, pee or visiting hours were over.
I try to make a point of posting articles that are interesting to me as a person, an autonomous adult that also happens to be called Mom. I try as hard as I can to have a life beyond the world of Mom as hard as that can be.
These women are women that I enjoyed talking to but now they have nothing to talk about except their children or their pregnancy. One of the two I have blocked the other I have not yet because at this point Facebook is really the only place we communicate. I feel like the kid that is a sore loser. I however find it so very hurtful from those that should understand that its not necessary (especially when your family lives a mile away from you) to post every waking detail of your pregnancy. It really just makes me want to Unfriend You- in the real world and on Facebook.
