thanks for this post. as the

thanks for this post. as the person TTC, it's true i'm not always sure what i want from my friends. sometimes i want them to ask, othertimes it just feels like all eyes are on me waiting for an announcement... an announcement that i don't have yet... and it makes me feel worse.

My period is starting today, closing out month 4 of TTC. I know that isn't all that long, but I feel really down and discouraged. it's lonely, and i want to reach out to people for comfort, but then again, i don't want everyone to know, and then have everyone watching me for that announcement.

Thanks for providing a space for insightful conversation on this.
