Infertility

My in laws made a comment about the fact that I am not pregnant: Thoughts?

Okay, ladies. I was mad at first, and now I’m just sad. My mother in law/father in law have been wanting my husband and me to have a baby for a long time now. We want babies too, of course, but it just hasn’t happened. I’ve had two miscarriages as well as PCOS, so it’s a bit tough physically, and emotionally I’m struggling. Long story short, I was sitting with my husband’s family, and his mom said out loud, “why have you had babies yet? I had two kids by your age,” and now I’m feeling horrible like I’m too late. Another thing she said that bothered me was that she hopes I have babies that look like my husband. My SOs grandma, who loves me, said, “what, will you be mad if the baby looks more like her?” And everyone went quiet. I don’t know if I can live like this. I don’t even know how to respond. I’ve just been quiet ever since. Anonymous Community MemberThis question was asked by a Facebook community member who has asked to remain anonymous.
