Not quite trained...

So I thought I had my husband fully trained as to what was and was not okay to say to me. Yesterday...I learned not.

After church yesterday morning, we decided to go out for breakfast. Here is how part of our conversation went:

G: So I will have a new chief experience coming up. (G is a Chief in the N.avy and runs a recruiting station)

M: Oh, really? What?

G: A pregnant recruiter.

M: What? Who?

G: Who do you think? I only have one female recruiter.

M: Umm... she's pregnant???? (note: she's not married either)

G: Yeah, didnt want it. Total surprise.

M: :::hold back the tears:::

Can someone explain it to me? Anyone?? I get frustrated when people say total surprise. Like did they miss the lesson in school??? Sex + no protection= possible pregnancy. How can there be a surprise?? Seems like simple math to me. I wish that simple math worked for me and so many women I know-- WHO ACTUALLY WANT IT! Needless to say... the rest of breakfast was pretty quiet. :(

I know, right! I get so upset when I hear those stories. To me, that's saying how little respect they have for life - being so callous with conception like that. I'm sorry you were feeling bad!

I'm sorry. I know exactly how you feel. I don't know if it ever gets easier. Even when we have a little one in our arms, those comments will remind of us how hard we worked to get there.

Totally understand! Hey, I meant to ask you before....are you going to a military facility for IVF? Just wondering ~ we are! :)

Good to see you back :)
