"I'm sorry....that sucks."

I decided tonight that these are the words I want to hear when I tell someone about our struggle...especially when I'm telling you as your new baby cries in the background or your belly is about to pop with the one you are expecting. I don't want to hear stories about how someone they know finally had a baby. I just want to hear them acknowledge that it sucks. I want them to acknowledge that it isn't really fair and that it must be hard when things don't happen easily. This is what I want.....well, this and a baby!

You are absolutely correct. Music to my ears when someone says this to me.

I completely agree. I told my MIL that -- "Please don't offer advice. The best thing you can say is "I'm so sorry. If you need to talk, I'm here."

Yep I'm the same way. There really aren't words to make us feel better. We have no babies, that's it. and it's sucks.
