9 Effective Exit Strategies for Pregnancy Announcements

For anyone out there who is infertile or ttc or just seems to be surrounded by pregnant people this is the post for you. God how I love this blog!

Honestly Infertile

It is never easy to prepare for a pregnancy announcement even when you are highly suspicious that it is coming.  It is even harder when you are completely blindsided by the friend that was “totally done” with having babies, an unwed cousin, or a workplace nemesis.  This article will help help you escape from that awful situation so that you can cry in solitude.

First, identify your safe cry place.  Your vehicle is usually a good idea but if that is not a possibility, a bathroom stall is okay if you can wail silently.  Other options might include a psychiatric ward of a hospital, a funeral service, or a feminine product aisle of your neighborhood Walmart.

Then, make a list of trigger words/phrases so that you can react swiftly.  These phrases may include but are not limited to:

I have some big news…

  1. OMG I have had to deal with this a lot lately…..I have been trying to have another baby for over 5 years now and just wrapped up a year long fertility treatment that didn’t do anything! when I was going through that my best friend told me she was pregnant and didn’t want it! I just wanted to slap her! I went through a phase that I hated any and all women that were pregnant and wanted to kick them in the shins….but I have moved on from that now….I no longer have the anger..just the sadness hits me when I least expect it….but I know that will fade in time as well…I have been coming to terms with not being able to have another baby and that is finally starting to sit okay with me…

    • Oh Lindsey, I have definitely been there. I have learned that even after you have kids those feelings dont go away (and I was really hoping they would). Thanks for sharing since I do believe it helps to talk about it. HUGS!
