Fertile thoughtsSince my speedy exit from message boards, I have spent more time reading other long-term TTC blogs, and am constantly overwhelmed at how interesting, thoughtful and witty the writing is. Contrast this with Prop Your Hips Up's assessment of language skills in fertiles and you might begin to wonder if there really is a direct link between fertility and writing skills. I might even be as bold as to suggest it could indicate an increased thoughtfulness and consideration for others among infertiles. It makes sense that people who have to deal constantly with unintentional thoughtless and hurtful comments from others would spend more time choosing their words carefully.
I have a confession - I used to be a smug first-timer. I can't remember ever upsetting anyone with a throwaway comment about how easy it was, but I also don't remember taking stock of the fertility status of those around me whenever I was talking babies. So if I ever hurt someone with a thoughtless comment, I am truly sorry.
I'm not sure how my fertility affected my language skills,
