Lately, well for the past couple of years I've been feeling like the "infertile outcast" with my dads side of the family. I'm super close to this side of the family, we all live fairly close to each other and spend a lot of holidays together etc. The girls on this side of the family, my cousins are all "fertile myrtle's" and as of this June we'll have 7 babies (yes I say babies) all under the age of 4. It took me awhile to choke that feeling down. Anyways, the "mother's" all get together once a week to do a dinner. They'll try new recipe's and so forth. I see everyone pull up at my cousin's house and it really hurts my feelings. Am I not included because I don't have kids??? I know I'm not included to movies and park dates because I don't have kids, but for a recipe date as well? I don't want to bring this up to them or I'm afraid to. I don't want to bring attention to myself and especially for the obvious of not having kids of my own. I just don't know how to handle it. Should I just leave it alone? I don't want them going " aww no, we'd never do that on purpose" and then be invited because I questioned the whole situation. UGH!!!!! I hate everything about infertility.
